Ella is doing well overall in recovery, but she is very uncomfortable. She is off the ventilator, but still has a tube in her hand, tubes in her stomach & chest, an IV in each foot, and some wires going to her heart in case of emergency. She has to have her hands tied down until those wires can be removed because it would be very dangerous if she pulled on them. She is very very thirsty and keeps crying for a drink, but she cannot have anything until at least 7pm, and then only about a teaspoon per hour. They have to let the stomach recover from bypass before she can have more. She also keeps crying to go home. We appreciate your continued prayers for peace & comfort for her during this time, that she will be able to rest. And also please continue to pray for Jon & Amy as well.
