Ana from Dr.Black's office

As some of you may have heard, Ana Espiritu, the office manager of Drs. Elliott and Summer Black's office, suffered a catastrophic bleed in her brain.  She was taken to the operating room for emergency surgery to remove the blood clot the day after Christmas.  She is currently in the ICU on a breathing machine with a ventriculostomy tube to help control the increased pressure on her brain. She is not conscious and is fighting for her life.  Ana is only 47 years old.  She immigrated with her family to the United States from the Philippines when she was young.  Ana has worked at Dr. Black's office for nearly 20 years. Ana knows all of the patients by name and they all love her dearly.  Ana has been married to her wonderful husband Rico for 23 years.  They are the parents of three young boys aged 11, 10, and 8.  As you can imagine, her family is devastated.  We have all been praying nonstop for her, her family and the doctors and nurses that have been working around the clock to save her life.  For those that would like to contribute, we have set up a gofund me page to help with the expenses her family will incur during this difficult time.  Please pass this along to your prayer warriors and ask everyone to pray for her recovery.  She and her family really need your prayers this holiday season. We love you all and thank you for all of your kind words, prayers, and support.
