Ellie's back in the Hospital!

Well, we're back. This time we went to the ER. It was our first admission through the ER. So I was pleasantly surprised that it didn't take three hours to be seen but it did take three hours to get to our room upstairs. The good thing is it's not her heart this time. The bad thing is it's a virus that has to run it's course.

We spent time with family for Thanksgiving and two of the cousins got ill. Then the next day Ellie got ill but she didn't get better. By Sunday she was totally lethargic and vomiting. We rushed her here and because she is on diuretics and of her heart condition, they thought it was best to admit her. We are hoping to be out of here soon. Well, my next post I will try and make it more positive. Thanks to Karen and Kayelynn for taking the girls after school and to my Mom-in-law for helping them in the morning and stuff. And to Rachel for sitting with her so I could get a break. Love you guys, it always takes an army of people when we are thrown off like this. We are just greatful to have such good friends and family to help out.

On a side note: please keep Ellie in your prayers next week as she has her MRI on Dec. 9. She is getting her tumor and her heart looked at. We are hoping for an uneventful MRI and good results.

We have been here since Sunday and every night I keep thinking that when I can pay it forward, I would like to get some comfortable sleeping chairs that you can actually sleep on. I am exhausted from no sleep. Hopefully I can sleep in my own bed soon.


  1.'s Michelle, Madison's mom. What hospital are you at? Madison is currently at PCMC and we'll probably be here for about a week. If you're at this hospital, maybe we could meet and chat. Let me know. Good luck with everything at your end. Take Care.

  2. Wow, it is always something. I am glad that it is not her heart. We will pray that she will be able to fight this infection and get you guys home to a nice comfy bed. Let me know if you need anything. I can bring you some yummy treats. Hang in there.

  3. Becca, I hope you all get to go home soon! I know what you mean about those awful chairs they have there. You all are in our thoughts and prayers.

  4. Hi! I saw your blog on Bridger's site and decided to check it out because our heart babies have the same name. I think their bdays are only a few days apart too. I hope your Ellie gets to go home soon. Those hospital "beds" are brutal!

  5. Becca we would do anything we can for you. Let us know when we can help out again! The kids just loved having your girls over.
