Highlights of the Day

Today has been a good day. Ellie has felt pretty well, but she still doesn't have much of an appetite. So far the blood cultures aren't showing any bacteria growth, so we may be able to go home this weekend. She may be getting another blood transfusion tomorrow. Ellie's friend Alexandria had her 8th birthday party today, so we joined via web-cam. The party theme was Lilo and Stitch, so we got some hawaiian decorations and sprinkled them around the room...there are paper lanterns, a beach towel on the wall, and Ellie dressed up for the occaision!

This one needs no explanation...in fact, I don't think there is an explanation!

Ellie turned the camera around on us. (Don't be alarmed by the look of her lips - they are a little chapped, and then they got stained by an orange popsicle...)

I'd say it's been a pretty good day! Love to all...

We were so excited that the web cam worked!! It was so fun to watch Ellie do the Limbo and the hula hoop right along side the party. The kids were so excited to see her. And I loved all of her decorations in the room :) She had her own little island luau... I'm glad the girls can use the web-cam to stay close. Isn't technology great!!

Love you! Kristi and Alex

Thanks Kristi and Alex! Ellie had a blast - thanks for including her in that way. She was so excited. She dressed up and sheepishly walked up to the nurse's station to show off her finery. She really enjoyed seeing all of her friends. Alex, you looked beautiful...I hope you had a wonderful birthday!

Thanks for the birthday wishes on the family site.. :D
It's so good to see you and Ellie having a nice time at your party.
I guess I just wanted you to know that I'm here "with you", reading your posts, and praying for you and Ellie and the boys. :D I check on you (and my friends' son Reid reid's baby blog) almost everyday.
Hopefully we'll get to Fl for a visit someday!
In His love,
