As many of you know, my sister's daughter Ella has a rare skin disease called Epidermolysis bullosa, which means her skin is very fragile and gets injured easily. Katie and Joe are awesome parents and have been amazing in their care and maintenance of Ella's "boo boos." On top this, Ella is a toddler and has learned to express her dissatisfaction with things she doesn't like, such as going to the doctor. Well, these two circumstances met each other head on today when Ella heavily resisted getting an important eye exam she really needs. My sister is asking for prayer for the next appointment, which is next Wednesday (11/25) at 8:45. Specifically, she would like prayer for Ella to be calm and cooperative. You can read more about Ella on her blog: Your prayers mean a lot to Joe and Katie, and to our entire family.
