Eleanor Branch Branch Family Updates

On February 26th, Isaac, Michael, and Eleanor came down with Covid-19. Throughout the next week, Isaac and Michael slowly started to recover, but Eleanor seemed to be getting increasingly worse. The test revealed that she has the Covid variant. On the morning of March 9th, the paramedics were called and Michael and Eleanor were on the way to the hospital. The paramedics called and told them that they just needed to go home, rest, and try to rehydrate. On the night of March 9th, Eleanor was rushed to the ER. She was non-responsive, her lips were purple, she was pale, couldn't sit up, and wasn't putting together coherent sentences. 

She has been in the ICU since that night. Originally, a respirator was used to increase her oxygen but it did not work. She is on a ventilator and in a medically induced coma. A tracheostomy was performed and it was found she developed pneumonia. The antibiotics have killed almost all of the pneumonia, but the doctors want to make sure she can breathe on her own before she is taken off the ventilator. 

We believe in the power of prayer. Please be praying for Eleanor and our family.
