Very Quick Update

I just heard from my mom that Ella had a good night. She slept all night with the exception of waking up when the nurse changed her diaper at 4am. So far no sign of nausea but I know that it may just not have hit yet. I am anxious to get back there to get her in my arms again!! I have instantly come to realize how much I miss the freedom of being able to come and go as I please and do simple things like laundry and dishes. I only slept for 5 hours last night because there was so much I needed and/or wanted to get up and do this morning.

Again, thank you so much to everyone for your continued prayers and support...you have NO idea how much it means to me .....well, unfortunately, I guess some of you do :(

Wow, Denise, I've been behind on my blog reading. I'm so sorry to hear sweet Ella (and your family) has to go through this. You can be assured of my prayers for this sweet little one. I'll be happy to get a button on my blog for her as well. The more prayers, the better to storm Heaven for some serious healing. God Bless You!

Julie said...

Glad to hear from you. We're keeping Ella in our prayers for a quick recovery, and hope you will remember to take care of yourself too. Please let me know if there's anything I can do for you. If you get a chance, e-mail me your address so we can send a little something for Miss Ella. Hugs!

Oh Denise - I haven't been on the computer all weekend so when I got on this morning to catch up I was shocked. I will immediately add my prayers to the many prayers already being said. I'm sorry I don't know much about the leukemia thing - but I do know about spending months in the hospital - and dividing your time between your kids at home and the one in the hospital. It is not easy - but you will find the strength to get through it. I wish I lived closer and could help you out - if you think of something I could do from afar - please let me know. We just love your little Ella! Please give her a hug from us!

Dear Denise and family,

Our prayers are with you all. Utter shock and still reeling from this news. So sorry that this is happening...
Thank you for the updates. Thinking of you - stay strong.

Kisses to you my dear friend, and kiss my baby girl too!

Heidi said...

It is so nice to hear updates from you and to know how to pray specifically for Ella.

Denise - we are coming to California this week and I just realized that the hotel we are staying at on Sunday night is 10 minutes from the CHOC. Would you mind if we came and visited with you and Ella for a little bit on Sunday? We would love to see you but if it's too much I completely understand!

Ella is always in my prayers!

Beth said...

I am saying a lot of prayers for you, your family, and especially Ella during this rough time. I can't help but cry reading your updates, and I am so sorry that you all are having to go through it all. Hugs from Clover, South Carolina,

I'm so glad she had a good night! Hoping right now is another one.

Tina said...

That's what family is about and friends too. We are all praying for Ella, so you just don't worry about her everything is going to be just fine, with this much of positive energy coming her way there's nothing to fear.

Big kisses to my pretty little angel and hugs to you, stay strong and always always positive.

Keep us posted pleeeease....

I am just crushed to learn this news about Ella. Bill and I are thinking about her and your sweet family!!! We know she can fight this!!! Gwendolyn sends her a big Wonder Woman hug!!!!

Heidi said...

Sunday afternoon would work great for us to come and visit! We will aim to be there around 3:30 pm. I am SO excited to see you too (although I wish it was under completely different circumstances also).

I mentioned to Joel this morning that we would be seeing Ella and I swear he said her name! I'll have to practice it with him for Sunday!

My cell number is 403-803-5706 if you need to reach me for any reason. Looking forward to Sunday!!
