January 2013

Ella had her 3 month MRI mid January.  The results continue to show that the remaining tumor is stable….meaning that it is not growing or shrinking.  It is approximatly 5.0 cm in length which is bigger than I thought.  I guess that is about the size of a walnut…but I measured it out and put it up next to Ella’s belly and it looks sooo big 😦  I hate knowing that that thing is just sitting inside her…I HATE IT.

Since the scans showed no significant change, Ella is now able to get her MRI’s done every 6 months.  So, next one is not until June.  Scans continued to show a distended bladder and colon.  She continues to have some bowel and bladder issues, however she has not had a bladder infection in some time now.  She is showing some interest in potty training, so I’m hoping that will help her overcome some issues as well.

Ella is doing fantastic.  At her 2 year checkup, she was in the 50th percentile for weight and 75th percentile for height.  Brian is pretty tall, so hopefully Ella will be a little taller than me 🙂  Doctor said that she is talking at a 3 1/2 year old level 🙂  She talks up a storm 🙂  And I understand almost everything she says.  She is soooo funny and loves to make me laugh.

We are signed up for another kindermusic session that started last week.

We are going to be moving to a new house sometime in March.  Not moving far…just about 15 miles away…to be closer to the family 🙂  We are hoping to get a house with a nice yard since Ella loves spending time outside 🙂

Please continue to pray for my sweet girl..
