The physicians had shown us the light at the end of this tunnel, but last night it was again darkened. Elijah dehydrated, again. He has lost 1.5 pounds and looks really thin and fragile. He reminds me of when he was 3 months old before we discovered his severe milk allergy. His bones are far more pronounced than I would like. He remains in the hospital and our hospital routine is becoming very difficult on the family.
To all of you who have helped us in such important ways through these 16 (and counting) days, thank you. For your prayers, for the food, for the gifts, for the visits, for help with Sophia, thank you. All of your kindnesses did not go unnoticed amidst our crises and we are deeply grateful for each one. It truly takes a village to raise Elijah and we’re so glad each one of you are a part.
Please continue to pray that Elijah will get hydrated and stay that way! His tiny body so quickly depletes of its nourishment.
