Sunday evening at 7:37 PM, Little Ella Marie made her way into this world. She is 8 weeks early. She weighs 3 lbs 14 ozs and is 16 1/2 inches long. Right now she is in the NICCU and on CPAP and is holding her own. She was given Surfactin to help mature her lungs, but will be in the hospital for at least another 6-8 weeks baring any complications. DDIL started having problems with pre-eclampsia Thursday. She started having contractions Sunday, late afternoon/early evening, and was taken to the hospital. Her blood pressure was very high and the MD decided to do a C-section to prevent any complications for her or the baby. DDIL is doing better now that the baby has been delivered and is resting well. Her and DS are worried about Little Ella though. All are hoping for daily improvement and no problems. Time will tell. Please keep them both in your prayers for healing and well being. Thanks.
