I just talked with my mom on the phone and Amy wanted me to post a couple special prayer requests for Ella. Jon & Amy are with her now, and even though she is still sedated, she is showing signs of being in a lot of pain. Also, with the slightest noise or movement, she begins to cry. Right now they are being very quiet in the room, keeping the lights off, etc. Please pray that this pain would go away quickly, as these next 24-48 hours she will be weaned quickly off pain medications. Also, please pray that she will be able to come off the vent easily. At this time, she is still not breathing above the vent at all, but that is normal while under sedation. The prayer is that as she begins to wake up, she will also begin taking breaths on her own. We thank you for all your prayers so far, and ask that you please continue, as these next 24 hours will be very crucial in Ella's healing & recovery process.
