UPDATE ON ELLEN




















Thank you for continuing to pray for Ellen. I have passed along all the well wishes and commitments to prayer to her family. She is overwhelmed and moved to tears by your love and support.

Edie at Rich Gifts was gracious once again. She made a prayer button for Ellen. Please feel free to pick it up and place it on your blog. Also, visit Edie and thank her for continuing to be a willing and gracious servant of our LORD!

Ellen is continuing to recover at home in the face down position. Each day is difficult, yet she is managing. She must be face down 23 out of 24 hours of each day. She was overwhelmed with the outpouring of prayer on her behalf. She could not believe that so many people who do not know her would care enough to pray. What a testimony of faith each of you are during this difficult time in Ellen's life.

I attached the original prayer request below for any who do not know about Ellen's condition. Please continue to storm the heavens on Ellen's behalf. GOD BLESS you all!


Please pray for our friend Ellen. She lives in Arkansas. She has a very serious condition in her left eye. These are her words:


"After 2 1/2 years the macular hole in my left eye has reopened and I am had surgery Thursday, July 23rd. I will be in "face down recovery" again for 2 weeks...ugh! Please keep me in your prayers that this time it will remain permanently closed and that this doesn't occur in my right eye. A scan showed signs of it developing there, but the doctor says he has seen this reverse in a small % of cases. This is the small % I want to be in! Ellen"

Storming the heavens on Ellen's behalf,

Andrea

Andrea,

Isn't Edie so creative and talented? I keep telling myself I am going to learn how to do all these things and then I get lost in all the busyness of the day!

Hope your vacation is going well and you're taking lots of pictures! Can't wait to hear all about it when you return,

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

I grabbed the button, hang in there, Ellen. God bless you and keep you strong.

This will all be a memory and you'll be stronger from it.

Face down for 2 weeks....I cannot imagine. On the other hand, it it a blessing that Ellen knows Christ. He will lie face down next to her! I will pray that she experiences wonder as she heals!
