Ellie’s Late Night Update

on December 23, 2012

12-23 me and ellie We had a tough afternoon but our night has been better.

Ellie had a temp of 101.6 so the nurse had us give her some Tylenol. They are unsure whether it is an infection or if  her brain cannot regulate her temp anymore.

Chris asked hospice if we could have oxygen and they brought some.

She really has perked up tonight with the oxygen and we have been successful in getting some feeds in.

Also her bowel movement issues seem to have stopped.

Praise be to the Lord for He has been answering our prayers … please keep praying!12-23 chris and ellie

Things to pray for –

  • For Ellie to continue to breathe on her own and initiate her own breaths.
  • That if she has an infection that she would be completely healed.
  • That she would get some good sleep tonight and that it would give her what she needs for tomorrow’s challenges.
  • That she  would get strong. That we would be able to get her back up to a full feeding.
  • For no lasting effects from the lack of oxygen that she has been experiencing.
  • That she would grow grow grow grow….
  • That the Lord would be gracious to all of us and let her stay with us. We love her so.

12-23 Brooke and ellieThank you to all of you who brought food, songs,  gifts and kind words. We so appreciate everyone’s kindness to our family.

Especially touched by those who have, out of their own grief, sacrificially shown their love us. You are truly Jesus’ hands and feet.

Praying throughout the night.

Do not withhold your mercy from me; O Lord; may your love and your truth always protect me. Psalm 40:11
