Pray for Ella!!!

Please keep my sweet baby in your thoughts and prayers tomorrow, Ella will be having the PDA in her heart closed. We check into the hospital at 6am and start at 8:30, and she gets to come home the very same day!! How neat is that, to think that maybe even 10 years ago this would have been a big deal, but now it's out patient surgery, pretty awesome!

In other news, Ella is going to be a calendar girl! Rhett's daddy is an amazing artist and is DRAWING pictures of 12 kids with Down syndrome. We had to enter a picture and then the winners were voted on and Ella was one of them! As soon as I get the details on how to purchase a calendar I will post them, the proceeds will help this family out with Rhett's medical bills (they have had a rough time finacially and medically.) Check out the other winners HERE

I'll be praying for little miss Ella tomorrow...and for you! You're going to post as soon as it's over, right? (hint, hint.) And GO ELLA, little calendar girl...too cute! I can't wait to see the drawings! (CUTE picture that's being used too!)

Also, thanks for your sweet comment. I miss you guys, and I think I was really needing to hear some encouraging words that didn't come from my own head. Sometimes it's easy to wonder if not being able to button my pants really IS just from too many Thanksgiving leftovers! :)

I will be thinking about Ella tomorrow morning...and you. And I'm sure I won't be able to stop thinking about you all the whole day!! We'll be praying!

That calendar sounds wonderful!! It's awesome that Ella got picked! But in all honesty, it's no surprise! She's so pretty! She was a shoe-in. :) I am interested in purchasing one so once you find out how let me know.

Those of us here will be thinking of you ALL! We all will be saying a prayer for missy and everyone involved in her care. That is so cool about the calendar!! I cant wait to see it. I am not surprised that she was picked though, I mean come on she IS the prettiest little girl around! Noone else can smile like her either! Oh well I must admit I am pretty biased! Ha! We will be sitting on the phone waiting to hear how it all went! Love ya bunches--Aunt Tami and family
