Update

As of 9 p.m., Elena's stats were as follows:
Oxygen saturation: 95
Ventilator: 80 (it was turned up to allow them to place her on her side)

Everyone seems very optimistic that while it will be a long recovery, she should recover in time. They also confirmed that it is viral pneumonia.

For those who are interested, here is the site for the bed that they brought in for her.

Here she is in the bed. You can't event tell that she's in there, but she is face down and it turns every few hours. They rotate her from face up to face down, and then they also move it from side to side.

  8. Melissa & family,
    Marilyn has been sharing your sister's progress and asking for prayers. I have been praying for all of you - the doctors for wisdom, the family for strength and peace and your sister for the strength to recover completely and soon! It sounds like the worst is over and I will continue to pray for consistent and complete recovery. Take care, Kim Polyard in Albuquerque

  18. Hi - I am a friend of Laura's (we spent 7 weeks together on a research expedition in the Pacific). I just wanted to pass on my best wishes to Elena and hopes for a turn around and speedy recovery. It sounds like Elena is lucky to be surrounded by such supportive family and friends. Keep up the good work! Dave from Maine
