Remaining in the hospital

Elijah remains hospitalized tonight. The doctor on the case today ordered more tests and more IV fluids to try to figure out why Eli has not recovered from his original diagnosis of c diff. The infectious disease specialist will be in tomorrow to make sure there isn't anything more going on with our little guy. Your prayers are needed and appreciated.

Each time Eli starts to seem better, he has a major set back and nearly dehydrates. Today, he is on a lot of fluid and hopefully he will start to be his old self soon. This 12 day hospital stay has been difficult on us. The unknown is hard and Eli's constant discomfort even harder.

Thanks for remembering us.

Thanks for the update Melissa. I'm thinking about you all... I'm hoping for a quick miracle for him to get better and home soon. I'm certain Sophia is ready for her little brother to be home too! Hang in there and take care of yourself!
