Today was very uneventful, Praise the Lord!

We had a swallow study, an echocardiogram, met with a gastroenterologist, pediatrician, pulmonologist, and started a pH study to check for reflux. It's a 24 hour test that will be done tomorrow.

The BEST news of the day was that it was cleared to have Evie's injection brought over from UNMC, so we didn't get off track with her treatment. That was a HUGE relief for us.

They gave us an apnea monitor to take home, so we will know if she stops breathing in her sleep or in the car. That will be a big help.

Well John and Lyla are on their way back... Lyla stuck her sticker earring up her nose! Poor thing.

Be back soon, Thanks for checking in! Love you!

Oh, and if you have any favorite scripture will you send it my way? I have my Bible up here, but I could use a boost of encouragement.


  1. I heard you met Kathy from Sleep Lab...isn't she the nicest person? She had nothing but praises to say about you and your gorgeous family. Continued prayers always...Jessica

  2. Praise God! Thank you Jesus for my dear friends and your hand in their life! Please continue to be near their side!
    We love you Elsaessers :)

  3. That reminds me of the episode on "House" where the little boy stuck a tiny police man, fire truck, and fire fighter (3 separate times) to go up after the tiny cat that was really stuck up WAY back inside the nose. I don't know if you watch "House" but that was a great episode!

    Lauren (my 18 year old) stuck a blue bead up her nose when she was 2 years old. I still have that in my jewelry box. :]

  4. Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails.
    Prov 19:21

  5. For you Lindsey,

    Isaiah 33:2,6
    O LORD, be gracious to us;
    we long for you.
    Be our strength every morning,
    our salvation in time of distress.
    the fear of the LORD is the key to this treasure.
