It's been 52 hours since Miss Ellis was taken off her vent and she continues to do well. All her vitals are stable. This alone is a miracle. We are also out of ICU and in a regular room. Would you like to hear another one? She's taken two bottles today. Slurped them down like it was nothing. She in no way should be able to do this, but she does. She astounds me more every day. Here's the thing about the Lord. He's the same God now He was then. Sure we don't see as many of the "part the sea" miracles as they did back then. I can't give you the reasons for why that is, but I can say He's the same God who did them. So we've seen at least big miracle #1 and big miracle #2. She still needs big miracles #3 through probably 10,000. With the injury to her brain she has huge hurdles ahead and we've been told the worst of the worst. But we've also seen miracles #1 and #2 so that gives us hope to believe for #3 through 10,000.
And believe we will.
Since I first started sharing her story over a million people have read about it. Often at night I will think about how if even 1% of those people are praying for my daughter, that means she's getting 10,000 prayers. I'm sure it's much more than we will ever know. We've been so encouraged by your stories, messages, emails and especially your prayers. I try to thank you often because it is often in my day I think about how thankful I am for each of you. You are a blessing.
Please continue to pray. I promise to continue to update. Here's a photo we snapped this morning of one tired but happy Mama and one cozy little Ellis. Also one of her downing her first bottle like a pro.
"What is impossible with man is possible with God."
We stand together in unity to declare that Ellis will live and not die. She will live to declare Jehovah is God, and her life will be a light and testimony to the nations. We declare that darkness is as light to you, God. We call forth light into the dark places and believe that what the enemy intends for evil, God is using for good. We break the power of every stronghold and argument over her life that exalts itself against the knowledge of God. We declare that no weapon formed against her will prosper. We declare that her spirit will rise up and lead her soul and her body. Ellis Claire Rodriguez, arise, shine, His glory is upon you.
