Ellie Maus's CDH Battle
How you can help:
PRAY for us! We truly believe in the power of prayer, and Ellie needs as many people praying for her as possible.
Donate, if at all possible. Jonathan and I know we will have a rough road ahead financially. We will be living in another state for an indefinite amount of time. Jonathan will go back and forth from Houston to Reserve to work until Ellie decides to make her grand entrance into the world. Once she is born, we plan for him to stay with us until Ellie is stable and ready to come home. Unfortunately, while his job is secure, this time off will be unpaid.
Donations can be made through this website or can be mailed to:
The Maus Family
191 Marmillian Loop
Reserve, LA 70084
(Checks can be made payable to Jonathan or Samantha Maus)
Thank you for taking the time to read our story and for any help you are able to give! Please check back for updates!
Quick Ellie Update:
We met with our team of doctors here in Houston, and they feel it is in Ellie's best interest to stay put for as long as possible. Our pediatric cardiologist did a thorough ultrasound of her heart, and while she was a little concerned she and the rest of our doctors, still feel like we are in a good place to give Ellie more time for her lungs to mature and for her to put on some weight. We are now permanently in Houston where we will be watched closely for any changes. Please continue to pray for us and let's all hope that Ellie will make it as close to October as possible!
Update on Ellie Ann
Update on Baby Ellie: Yesterday, Monday June 23rd, we had a follow up appointment at Texas Children's Hospital. The doctor performed an ultrasound to measure Ellie's lungs again and to see how much they have grown since our last appointment almost two weeks ago. We received some good news! Ellie is still in a very dangerous situation, but every little bit of good news is a huge deal for us! Jonathan and I are in awe of the amount of love, prayers, and donations coming in from all over our community. Our family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, acquaintances, and even people we have never met are all coming together to pray for Ellie and to help us out in so many ways. It is hard to put into words just how much we appreciate each and every one of you! THANK YOU!
