Day + 3

Today has been another exhausting yet productive day.  Elena is still fighting to get all of her jobs done no matter how she feels or what else is going on.  It is a struggle at times, but she is always happy when she gets them done. :)

Over the past couple of days Elena has been retaining a little fluid.  Her doctor started some medicine today to help her body get rid of it.  She has been doing this about every 30 - 45 minutes, which has added a little excitement to our day.  Please pray that this indeed has helped Elena with her puffiness as well as prevent any possible infection from forming in her body.

Please also pray that Elena's brand new cells and her 13 year old body get well acquainted over the next few weeks and that they make thousands more healthy cells to heal her body on the way to a full and complete recovery.  That is, after all, the ultimate goal of this little exercise!  That will definitely make all of this worth it!

In Him,
The Tates

"With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."  Matthew 19:26


  1. Keep up the good work Elena. Every day down is a day closer to full recovery.

  2. Happy Sunday morning to the Tates! As this new day begins, we want to say simply . . . we love you - and we are keeping you very close in prayer! Toni and John Kimbrough

  3. Looking to the day when we hear the news that Elena is totally healed and healthy...praying with you

  4. Elena----I am inspired by your strength and I am keeping you in my prayers!!! Lisa Fredericksen

  5. Elena, you keep fighting & we'll keep praying. You are a brave young lady & an inspiration to all of us.

    I'm praying that you can feel Jesus right next to you & that you know deep in your soul that you're not alone as you fight.

    I'm praying for your mom, dad & Liv asking God to give them all they need to walk this journey with you & asking God to give you all joyful moments in these days.

    You are loved!
