Elijah's recovering...again

Dear Friends and Family:

Elijah remains at Saint Francis today. He is lucky enough to be among the first children to use the brand new Children’s Hospital, which started accepting patients today. Elijah is doing much better and his internal chemicals are starting to balance out. He still isn’t eating his usual amounts and continues to rely on IV fluids. The goal is to continue to wean him from IV and increase his eating volume.

We have had one of our roughest weeks in Eli history. I know my last post was very alarming, but justified. We expect Eli will be released by week’s end.

Thank you for remembering him in your daily prayers.

With love,
Melissa
