Ellie Elizabeth 3-15-2010
Ellie was put on a ventilator and transferred to IMC NICU (where she spent the 1st 8 days of her life). Nobody was allowed to hold her, but before the transfer Brandie was able to take her by the hand, and she received a priesthood blessing.
When Ellie was born she had the cord wrapped around her neck and it caused her to take in some fluid which caused her to get pneumonia :( On the video you can see that her lungs collapsed and her chest was retracting. She was breathing 100 times per minute, that's more than once per second.
