Change in visitation policy

Our entire family has been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support for Elena during this difficult time. Her room in the ICU is not very big and that is an almost constant stream of nurses and doctors caring for her at any given moment. We are so grateful for all of the people who have taken time to spend some time with her, but at this point we are going to have to ask that visitations be restricted to immediate family.

We are doing this because as her care continues, it is imperative that the nursing staff have the ability to do their job and have immediate access to our girl, and it can be difficult when there are multiple people in the room. The bed that she is in takes up most of the space, and navigating around it can be a bit of a challenge.

We ask that if you were thinking of making a visit to the hospital, you hold that visit until she is moved out of the ICU. We hope everyone understands and ask you to continue to pray and think good thoughts as we move through this process together.



  1. I am saddened as I am just learning of this news.
    Elena is an amazing person and she will be in my thoughts and prayers.
    Love you E! Cant wait to see your beautiful face...
    Love, Erin

  2. God has sent Elena one of his Angels to be with her, to help her get through this. My thoughts and prayers are with her and the Romeu family.
