Eli's Staying in Tulsa

Eli will not be going to Shreveport today. The Shriner's docs are coordinating with the docs in Tulsa. The Shriner docs do not want the rod to come out today. The x-rays from Friday show the pin in perfect condition and if it comes out today the surgery will likely have to be redone. So, we're considering the options. The Shriners suggest clipping the part of the pin that is sticking out of his arm. Yikes!

Please pray for complete healing in Eli's little body quickly with no further complications. Of course, pray that we do not have to do the surgery again.

Love,
Melissa

So sorry to hear little Eli is in the hospital having such a rough time. We'll be praying for him. We'll also pray for Sophia knowing this is hard on her too. God's blessings,
