Answered Prayer

Well, I can’t begin to tell you how faithful God is.  As you recall, I had three prayer requests from my last post. 

1. That the fluid in Ella’s lungs dissipates as she moves and breathes more.  Check.

Her breathing progress has been incredible.  Ironically, due to a good cry from the nurses attempting to put a new IV in her foot and then in her head…she essentially cried her lungs out.  This caused air to get in to the deep parts of her lungs, and was a huge blessing in disguise.  (by the way, I’m glad Jillian only told me about this over the phone and I wasn’t present at the time)

2.  That Ella would start eating well and get her strength back.  Check.

Not only did she regain her appetite the next day, but is now surpassing what she would normally take in one feeding, pre-operation.  She is essentially chugging the milk.

3.  That Ella would smile soon, and her spirit filled with joy once again.  Check.

 I think this picture says it all…thank you Jesus and thank you to all who have been praying!
