Sarah has asked me (Kim) to pass on the latest information to you all. Ellie went in to surgery this afternoon at 2:30 with the doctors planning on removing her old broviac and replacing it with a new one. They had trouble geting her stabilized enough to do that, but were finally successful. When the new broviac was put in, it caused some internal bleeding. This caused the cascade of events that followed. Around 4:00, Ellie went into septic shock and was given Dopamine to try to raise her blood pressure. An hour or so later, Ellie had to be "aggressively resuscitated", but is now "holding her own". The family there can tell that she is fighting with everything that she has. She has been sedated and is on a ventilator and will remain like that until her systems normalize. When she is stable enough, they will move her to the ICU. Please pray for Ellie and all the family.
"When peace like a river attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll.
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul."
