Welcome to Elisa's CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your prayers, your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. My Story: After an abrupt change in health on August 25, 2016, Elisa endured a barrage of tests, procedures, and less-than-optimal care by specialists. The initial assumption was that her body had attacked itself in the form of Guillain-Barré (GBS). While mostly bed-ridden in the weeks and months that followed, Elisa read articles, googled, and researched all possible causes, due to tests mostly ruling out GBS. Elisa and her doctors continue to search for an answer to her life-altering medical issues.
