Day + 11

Today marks the end of Elena's 3rd week in the hospital.  Twenty-one days away from home, family, church, and friends.  Twenty-one days spent with only one parent at a time while her other parent and her sister try to keep life away from the hospital as normal as possible.  It is not easy for us to be separated under any circumstance, but add in all of the challenges we are facing and it begins to take a toll on everyone.  Please pray for peace and patience as we continue to balance our new hospital life with our home life and all of the issues related to each.  This will be even harder now that school has started and with it a more demanding home life. 

Please also continue to pray for healing for Elena.  Pray that her body accepts her new cells and begins to produce many more healthy ones 

In Him,
The Tates

  1. Elena, I won't tell you I understand what you are going through, but I will tell you that I am soooooooo Proud of you for your strength and determination. I am praying that you start feeling better soon....Please GOD, make Elena feel better. I love you honey.
    I take you on the field with me every nite, and you help me get through each game.
    Paule Nauert Phil. 4:13

  2. We are counting and counting and can't wait to see you home! "God I ask that you give Elena more strength today, bubbles of joy, less pain and full, complete healing. May your glory be seen in her and through her family. I ask that each hand that touches her be kind and gentle as your are God. May this day pass quickly and productively. Show your love and healing today, Lord. And, may we all rejoice in your goodness!" We love you Elena. You are a strong and courageous warrior...keep the fight.
