Whew! The last 5 months have been a roller coaster! I'm not sure that I have enough time to sit and type what has transpired before our sweet girl wakes up from her nap. I'll start by saying that she is doing well :) She had a sedated echo on Oct. 5th, and her left side looks great. Her left ventricle is "normal" sized, as well as the mitral valve. GOD IS GOOD!!!
To sum it all up, feeding & weight gain have became a BIG issue! All summer long, Ella had a hard time keeping her bottle down which led to double feeds for us (and one antsy big brother), screening for cystic fibrosis (because she produces LOTS of secretions which spurred the vomiting), a week long stay in the hospital that included numerous tests (which didn't provide any answers), and one long, hectic summer!!! The only thing that kept us going was her beautiful smile and wonderful personality!!
I have been back to work since mid-August, and Ella and Grady are together with Miss Barb. Miss Barb has been wonderful to our entire family, and we are SO BLESSED to have her in our lives. Ella is really enjoying watching the other kids run around and play. And, of course, Grady is so happy to have his favorite girl there, too!
I thought you might enjoy a few updated pics of our sweet kiddos. I will make a promise from this day forward to sit down on Sundays to let you know how we are doing. I hope you are all doing well and I thank you for checking in on our family.
Love to all,
The Morrison Family XOXO
