Ella's Early Arrival




Ella Hope Carder was born last night around 7:30 p.m. She weighed in at 4 lbs. 3 oz and is absolutely beautiful. She has gotten good reports from her doctors so far and Amy is doing well.

Now for the details. It was pretty scary yesterday when Amy called and said that they were going to the hospital to get checked because she was having terrible headaches. She started having them early Saturday morning and when it continued to get worse the Dr. told her to go ahead and come in. Once they got to the hospital they monitored her blood pressure and it was extremely high. They decided under the circumstances to go ahead and do the c-section. It all happened so fast and now Ella is here and healthy. Her daddy even got to hold her last night! So we are all thankful that both mom and baby are doing well.

Please continue to pray for Amy as she recovers from a rough day yesterday and as the doctors continue to monitor Ella and determine when her surgery will be. It could be as early as today. We will keep you posted.
