More information about Eliana...from Lindsey's sister

First of all, thank you to everyone who is praying for Eliana. They definitely appreciate and feel your prayers! I wanted to just give a quick update with what is going on with sweet girl. Eliana threw up several times in the night and got choked, and thankfully her foster mom heard her choking and coughing. She immediately called the doctor, and he rushed her to the hospital. The doctor said that if her foster mom hadn't heard her, she would've passed away. (Thank you Jesus for waking her up!!!) They haven't heard anything new, but they do know that she is still in the hospital. Her body is SO tiny, so please pray that she can remain strong.

Obviously, Lindsey and Chris are not doing well right now. Please pray for peace and comfort as they deal with this from hundreds of miles away. They are currently doing some laundry and are probably going to fly there tomorrow (nothing is official yet!). Also pray that the doctor will contact them soon with an update. As soon as I hear anything else, I will definitely write an update. Thank you again for your prayers and encouraging words!

Lauren

P.S. Anyone that would like to help.....please contact Lou at lou0728@yahoo.com. She is trying to get money for their flights!!!

Thanks for updating Lauren.

I am glad to hear that it sounds like a circumstance more than a chronic illness.

Still praying.

Oh, my goodness!!!

Praying, & hoping she gets better soon!

We have friends that were able to get out of PGN quickly with a "medical necesity." Not exactly sure what this situation will turn out to be, but if she needs treating in the US, it might be worth a shot by their attorney in Guatemala.
