Ella's Words and Signs

I feel like all I have been posting lately are videos. Maybe because life has been so hectic this last week or so and posting a video is quick and easy. We are still home from the hospital at least through next monday. Remember how, when we are in the hospital, we are waiting for Ella's counts to hit 500 so she can go home? Well in order for her to start her next round, her counts have to be at 1000. Last round it took her 3 weeks to build up to 1000. Right now we are sitting at 2 1/2 weeks but as of this past friday, she was only at 515. So who knows. We will have her blood drawn again on friday and if it is high enough, she will go back in on Monday. But she is doing great. Still praciticing her walking and so far staying very healthy. Praying that this continues.

BTW Denise, I don't know what happened with the comment I left on Ella's phone video the first time, so I left another one. Yes, I noticed, that goes to show you how many times Landon watches that video, lol!!

Just looking through the last few posts, and I have to ask...
Is there anything this child can't do, isn't doing???
Looks to me as if she is doing it all, or sure as heck trying to do it all!!
She is amazing Denise!

WTG ELLA!!!!
