Praise the Lord!

We never recieved official word of when Ella's surgery started. She went to OR right away but last we heard the doctors where talking about the best approach. However, I just recieved word that Ella's surgery is complete! The doctors are very happy with the outcome. There were a few things that were a bit more complitacted than planned but it all went well and they did not experience any of the major complications that can sometimes come with these surgeries. Ella is doing well. Oh, my goodness I love her!!! Thank you Jesus for all you have done today! Please continue to be with Ella throughout the night!
She will continue to be closely moniotored throughout the night.

Amy is hurting pretty badly. She so badly wants to see Ella. She is trying to find the balance between taking enough medication not to be in intense pain but also not taking too much to make her recovery time to seeing Ella delayed. Please pray for her.

Thank you all for your prayers today. Take a minute to thank the Lord for what he has done and keeping praying!

For Amy and Jon,
Aunt Rachael


  1. So thrilled to hear that Ella survived the surgery!

  2. I am friend of Jenn's and she encouraged us to pray for your family. As we all held hands before dinner, my husband and two of my sons and I lifted you all up to the Lord.

  3. This is AMAZING news! Thank you so much for keeping us updated. We will continue to pray for Ella, and that Amy is able to go and see her daughter very soon.

  4. Praying for Ella tonight!

    Heart hugs,

  5. Great news!! Will keep praying for you all. Thanks for the updates Rachael :)

  6. So grateful to our Lord for what He has done. I'm sitting here crying as I feel like part of the family watching this whole journey from afar. Having my mother-in-law go through major re-section surgery today and staying with her in the hospital all day has put me in the proper frame of mind as I prayed for Amy and Ella. I'm so relieved to hear this news. I will continue to pray!

  8. Thank you so much for keeping us updated! Praising God for what He has already done and what He will do! We will continue to lift them up in prayer!
