UPDATE ON ELLA!

Today Courtney posted this on her Facebook!
You pray for a miracle... you get a miracle...Our little Ella gained almost a pound in 3 days 12 oz total, and 5oz overnight!! The doctors are in awe and says that "this never happens,this is just crazy!" Not crazy when you trust in God... Please spread this to everyone so God can receive the Glory he deserves! :) We get to go home today! :) PTL!

She is in the clear and we get to go home today... they came in after weighing her and said, "um this baby can go home, she's fine" We are so excited.. she does have Acid Reflux but they said unless she looks like shes in pain we dont need to medicate her... but that was a big reason why she wasn't gaining...

Don't you love when God works a miracle in someone's life and the medical world doesn't know how to respond? It's one of my favorites. :)

I would like to point out that as big of a time waster as Facebook can be, what an awesome connection place for prayer among Christ-followers. I've passed along prayer requests for people that I don't even know. I know people who don't know me have prayed for us because of friends on Facebook. It blows me away that people get by in life without the fellowship and comfort of a Church Body. There is so much in our life that we wouldn't have if it weren't for our church. I'm not saying "church" as in Saddleback church proper, but church as in the Body of Christ. In our "new fangled age of technology" Facebook is quickly becoming a new way to "fellowship" and interact with other Christians and make a prayer chain bigger than it ever has been.

"And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints"

(Ephesians 6:18).
