Successful Surgery

Ella is out of surgery and it was very successful. The Dr. said that they were able to get all of the sac inside and just had to use a small quarter-size patch of synthetic skin to cover everything (which I think Rick said that real skin will eventually cover). Praise the Lord for a smooth surgery! The Dr. said he was pleased with everything. Thank you for your prayers. Amy is doing well with her recovery too. Ella will be on a ventilator for the next couple of days at least, so please continue to pray for her healing and recovery. God is so good and all of our prayers are being answered on Ella's behalf. We'll have more details from the Dr. on what is to follow and will keep you updated as we learn more.

What a great surprise when I clicked on your blog! With tears of joy in my eyes I thank God for answered prayers. That IS AWESOME. I am so happy you have gotten over the major hurdles. Now it is up to sweet Ella to tolerate her feedings when the docs decide she is ready. The two-step begins. I will pray that she only steps forward! Love- Jaime (Stone) Reed

Praise God for His strength he continually gives your blessed child! He will continue to place her under His wings, and give her peace to rest and heal her in the most amazing ways, which any human could never understad. May God continually bless, give your family power, energy and strength!!

Our blessed 4 year old was a NICU baby with numerous problems - now healthy, well and constantly fighting with her older brother!!!!

We must share with many this lovely scripture - as it held so true within our NICU experience for the first three years of her life.

Psalm 121

Praise God for His mercy and grace - for the very precious life He hands to each one of us!! May we never take a breath for granted.
