Ella's scope rescheduled

Obviously from the title of this post you can probably gather that Ella was not able to have her scope and pH probe done this past Wednesday due to the crazy weather. We were very disappointed and frustrated and it has been a three-ring circus trying to get things sorted out with this and rescheduled. Sorry that I am just now updating, it has just been a crazy couple of days. I want to thank all of you for your prayers, emails, phone calls and encouragement this past Wednesday. It just felt like nothing was going the way we would have liked it to on Wednesday so we needed the encouragement even though Ella didn't have the procedure so Thank You!

The past couple of days we have been in the process of trying to reschedule the scope and pH probe. Yesterday they told us that the earliest they could get us in would be Feb. 11th! Umm, not going to work. I immediately broke into tears on the phone with poor Wendy, the scheduler and told her how I was at the end of my rope and that Ella is spitting up all the time, doesn't want to eat, is not sleeping well, etc. and that I could not wait that long. I'm sure she was thinking,"Wow, this girl is a nut job!" So she said she would put us on the cancellation list for Feb. 5th and that we just needed to pray that someone would cancel so we could get in. Again we were very disappointed but were just hoping something would happen and that they could get us in earlier. Well, today sweet Wendy calls and says she talked to the doctor and they made arrangements to work us in and do the scope this Monday, Feb. 2nd!! We are so excited and beyond thankful for this news. Wendy is about to get herself a new best friend named Amy Carder and she doesn't even know it yet. Watch out Wendy!

So, if you would, please be praying again this week for Ella and that we are able to get some answers. It will be a big week with the scope and pH probe on Monday, an Upper GI procedure on Wednesday and a follow-up appt. with the GI nurse practitioner on Friday. I know, amazing. Thank you for all the prayers and support you all have been giving us. Even though the past several days have been hard we have had some major blessings happen as well and we just continue to be amazed at how the Lord is meeting our needs through all of you, our precious friends and family.

We will update as soon as we know something on Monday. I've also got some great stories to blog about that aren't quite so Debbie Downer (Mrrr...mrrr) like my previous posts have been so check back soon. Spoiler Alert: one story involves me biting it big time on the ice outside our house, delivery man has to drag me off the icy sidewalk, felt like I was going to pass out a couple of times, x-rays done on wrist, brand new washer and dryer. More to come, stay tuned.

Good thing you broke down. Your new best friend must have heard your desperation. : ) So glad you guys got in earlier. Enjoy that new washer and dryer. With your appointment being canceled on Wednesday and busting on the ice sounds like that wasn't the best day for you. : )

Sometimes tears on the phone do wonders! So sorry that you had to reschedule - I know that you are more than ready to find out how to help sweet Ella. Hang in there! We will be praying on Monday!

Oh Sweet Carder Family... I finally had a chance to catch up on all of your posts. My heart aches and I hurt with you, yet also laugh with you and find it amazing you can keep your humor. That must be the Lord working in your wonderful hearts. You are so transparent and honest - we love you so much. It seems like the hardest part would be not knowing when this "season" of life will pass. We will be fighting and praying with you through it... Much love from Team Michener

I am sorry things didn't go as planned this past week....it sounds like you had one heck of a week! I look forward to hearing the whole "ice" story, I hope you are okay. I too took a spill on the ice the other day and our sweet Ava tells everyone she sees that "grandma fell on her butt" !! You must get your ice skating ability from me !! Keep your wonderful sense of humor honey. We will all be praying for good results and thinking of you tomorrow. I love you all very much.

I will be praying my guts out for your sweet baby girl this week---and for you and Rick too of course! Praying for no cancellations of appointments and for ANSWERS with SOLUTIONS. And for strength that only comes from our LORD. Love you all so much. Big hugs--

John said...

Nice---"John" is actually "Shelly" (Willbanks). I love it when that happens. :)

I'm praying for answers on MOnday!!! And you aren't a DD - you are just real and I appreciate that, although I'd really love a good story or 2 when you have the time to share! Blessings on your busy, full week

The good news is that you will always have Kelsie with you when things aren't going your way.

We love you and we're praying for you constantly!
