Elle Update

You can go to Lisha's blog for a more in-depth update, but I wanted to hit the high spots for anyone that may have missed it.

Yesterday they:
removed Elle's chest tube and breathing tube
continue to give her antibiotics for pneumonia
ran test for RSV and the flu
continue to ween her off of morphine by giving her methadone and adavan
are hoping she will poop soon
and Lisha got to hold her!!!

She is such a strong little girl and our prayers are still needed!

Little Elle Belle

Elle made it through the surgery wonderfully! The doctor was surprised to see how bad her little heart was blocked off. Here is what Lisha said last night at 5:00 "Dr m just met with us. it went well- he was shocked at how tiny her pulmonary valve was- that it was even allowing any blood to flow through it. He fixed that and the holes and now we are waiting to see her. "
She will probably wake up from sedation today and be in a lot of pain. Please continue to pray for her and Lee and Lisha. They have an uncertain road of recovery ahead of them and still need our prayers. God is SO great and answered our prayers for her surgery. Glory to God!!

Baby Elle

Please be in prayer today for baby Elle! She went into surgery this morning at 8:00 and it should last 6 to 8 hours. They are repairing her little heart. Pray for her strength, that the doctor will have steady hands and a quick mind, pray for all the nurses and anyone else that will be in her OR today. Please also pray for Lee and Lisha, I cannot even imagine what they will go through over the next 6 to 8 hours. Elle is a strong little girl and I am sure she will do great. God is watching over her but our prayers cannot hurt! I will try and keep our blog updated about her, but you can also go to the Lupher's blog below.

Back in Heaven

It's that time again...... Time for table cloths, center pieces, and tents. No, not wedding season, football season! I LOVE IT! We went to Oxford for the Southeastern Louisiana game this last Saturday and had a great time as usual. Sorry for the lack of pictures. Since it was not a big game there were not a ton of people there, but just wait. The Alabama game in 3 weeks (if we are still good) will be NUTS! Even bigger than the LSU game my senior year. Matt and I bought season tickets for the first time this year and since we don't donate money our seats are not all that great, but at least we have seats. We WILL be giving money next year especially since Matt is in the M Club and we get an awesome rate on donations. Anyway, as you can tell Knox was pretty pumped to get into Oxford too. He just sat there looking out the front window just waiting on the Oxford signs to appear!

Now we have Thursday to look forward to when our Rebels take on The South Carolina Gamecocks in Columbia! Hotty Toddy!

It Smell Like Heaven

My Labor Day weekend started out in Oxford! I miss living there and can only hope Matt will practice some type of medicine there. Matt had to stay home and study (boo!), but my parents kept me well entertained. I hit the town Friday night with Corey and CJ after a wonderful dinner with the Schove's. On Sunday my parents and I rode with the Richardson's to Memphis and I don't think I have ever laughed that hard in my life! QD was with them and it was great to see her!

So we all know my head is tiny! Whatever.

CJ looks like some guy that just jumped into the picture

I guess I have never stayed out late enough to see this, but apparently Elvis closes the Library down every night by singing Dixie!

And this was the second best part of the weekend (the first being Ole Miss beating Memphis. Duh!)! There is a new business in Oxford called Zingo. There are these tiny scooters that fold up into a bag. Once in the bag they place the scooters in your car, drive you home in your car from the square (or where ever), and drive the scooter back to their base station just outside the Library! Why did I not think about this? Oh and it only cost $20! How cool is that? This was our driver in his reflective gear. I wish I could have gotten a picture of the scooter before he bagged it up.


And the best picture from the weekend. While at the pep rally on Beale Jarrod spotted Jevon Sneed's dad so we just HAD to take a picture with him! He was so nice! And I also love how Jarrod looks like a kid on Christmas morning!
