Mostly Pictures

Ella continues to do well. As you can see from the picture above, she is still a feisty little thing!! Her blood counts are starting to drop...especially her platelets. She may be getting a platelet transfusion tonight. But her energy is still good and so far no fevers. We pray that it stays that way as the biggest worry at this point is some sort of infection. She is finally unhooked from the IV during the day which gives us a lot more freedom to play on the floor and go for walks. My mom stayed with Ella the last two days so we could do some 4th of July things with the big girls while they are in between trips. We went to a BBQ and then watched fireworks. I couldn't get over how chilly it was at night. I was literally wrapped in a blanket while watching the fireworks show. Anyway, here are some pics from the couple of days I was in the hospital. Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th!!

My friends, Linda and Debbie whom I have known for
30 years....since 7th grade...wow!!!

Ella was having fun playing in her crib and kept taking the
towel on and off her head...couldn't quite catch the cutest
moments, of course!!

Got this in the mail from Aubrey along with the
cutest little knit Minnie Mouse ears hat..can't
wait to get a picture of Ella wearing it. (Lacey,
you will be soooo jealous!)

This picture was emailed from Faith...I just love
that people are praying for Ella all over the country!!

Nothing like a little chemo to get a girl up on her feet and moving,is there?In Zoey's case it was sitting but nonetheless amazing, that these precious kids can have this poison coursing through their bodies and they STILL reach milestones.Actually I think the leukemia was holding them back and once it was knocked out of the park,they felt better and begin to find their way again.

Love the pictures and again,I think your mom and sister are amazing.Really amazing.

Call you tomorrow.

She cracks me up in that video, everyone is trying to talk to her and get her attention and she is bound and determined to walk into the room, SO cute! Great pictures and I'm glad you are able to leave the room. Just curious, when her ANC gets really low are you guys allowed to leave the room?

Rochelle said...

Ella you continue to amaze us. Thankful that you are still fiesty and feeling good. Praying you stay that way and get no infections.
Thankful that your mom is there to help out so you can spend time with Abbey & Emma. What a blessing.
LOVE the video, super impressive Ella on the go even in socks on the tile floor, You rock baby!

Julie said...

So glad that the hat got there safely. Can't wait to see her in it:) She looks wonderful and we hope that she keeps it up.

Lori said...

What an adorable little firecracker! I am glad and pray that she continues to feel well throughout all these treatments.
Also praying for you and your hubby and Ella's sisters. I can only imagine this whole process is rough on the whole family.
