Doing well

Elijah has come through this surgery with the best post-op yet. He was actually ready to play far sooner than I expected. He was still connected to an IV so he couldn't go to the play room. He is treating his surgically repaired arm, which is in a cast from hand to arm pit, just like his regular arm. I think he's become so accustomed to splints at home that this is nothing. He was one of three in his room who had surgery today and he did the absolute best of the group. I am very pleased. Thank you for your special prayers for Eli today. We will travel home tomorrow so remember us then too. We are becoming pros at this.

With love,
Melissa

Sad that you all have become so good at surgeries. But, I'm so happy to read how well little Elijah did today.

Have a safe trip home. I know Sophia will be happy to have you back. What a great big sis she is!
