My son and his wife are expecting their second child any day now.
Little Ella is very ill, one kidney is totally non-funtioning and they are not sure about the second one. If the second one is ok, she can lead an almost normal life, if the other kidney is damaged................
They have a kidney specialist lined up for her. Once she is born more testing will be done and hopefully all will be ok.
Ella was my mom's name. My mom died in 1994, she was born and raised in Germany and was in concentration camp starting at age 17 until she was 21. She was one of 11 children and the only one in her family that lived. My grandmother, my mom's mom died a few days after being released from concentration camp. She was born on 1/31/18??. I think it would be grand if little Ella was born on 1/31 as well. Molly is having some contractions so it will be any day now.
Please say a prayer for little Ella's other kidney to be strong and healthy. No baby should be born ill. Thanks everyone

The light of God surrounds Ella, the love of God enfolds her, the power of God protects her, the wisdom of God guides and directs her, wherever Ella is, God is, and all is well.

We have two girls named Ella in within three houses of mine - a teenager, and a kindergartener.

And my old neighbor Kay lived her whole long life with one good kidney and one small, nonfunctioning one. She lived to be 82, had three healthy, strong children, and a good life.

We will keep your Ella in our prayers.

Sending good wishes and positive thoughts your way.

I hope she has at least 1 good, healthy kidney. I know that medicine has come a long way, but sometimes the doctors are wrong. They told my Mom that my brother would be too small to live so they didn't want to induce labor. Well, I don't know what they were working at because he was over 10 pounds when he was born!

So, I'm hoping they are wrong in this case too!

This morning at 8:30 Ella was born. Seven lbs13 ounces.
Spoke to my son who is so happy and relieved.
They will see the kidney specialist next week.
But for now all is ok. Once they see the KS he will decide if and when the bad kidney needs to be removed.
Thank you everyone for you prayers, kind words and support.
You are a blessing and a joy in my life.
Hugs to all, Monica:love:

Congratulations and thank you God! Glad to hear she is thriving so far.

Pretty name! It actually means "light", and that sure applies here! I looked up some info on it:

http://www.behindthename.com/nm/e2.php

ELLA (1)

Gender: Feminine

Usage: English

Pronounced: EL-ə [key]
Norman form of the Germanic name Alia, which was a short form of names containing the Germanic element ali meaning "other". It was introduced to England by the Normans and used until the 14th century, and it was later revived in the 19th century. A famous bearer was the American singer Ella Fitzgerald (1917-1996).

ELLA (2)

Gender: Feminine

Usage: English, Scandinavian

Pronounced: EL-ə (English) [key]
Diminutive of ELEANOR, ELLEN (1), and other names beginning with El. It can also be a short form of names ending in ella.

Where it came from:

HELEN

Gender: Feminine

Usage: English, Greek Mythology (Anglicized)

Pronounced: HEL-ən (English) [key]
English form of the Greek Ελενη (Helene), probably from Greek ελενη (helene) "torch" or "corposant", or possibly related to σεληνη (selene) "moon". In Greek mythology Helen was the daughter of Zeus and Leda, whose kidnapping by Paris was the cause of the Trojan War. The name was also borne by the 4th-century Saint Helena, mother of the Roman emperor Constantine, who supposedly found the True Cross during a trip to Jerusalem.

The name was originally used among early Christians in honour of the saint, as opposed to the classical character. In England it was commonly spelled Ellen during the Middle Ages, and the spelling Helen was not regularly used until after the Renaissance. A famous bearer was Helen Keller (1880-1968), an American author and lecturer who was both blind and deaf.
