Eli Smiles

I am thrilled to report that Elijah's smile is back!

Today, I tried to help him sit up. That didn't go so well. He had a look of terror on his face as his usual balance is off. His former feet were part of his balance. I have no doubt he will figure that out quickly, but for now, he is either being held or laying around. Pray that his advancements -- getting himself up and down and walking on his knees -- will not be set back by this surgery.

He still has a ways to go, but each day I can see progress toward the active little boy he is.

Currently, he is watching Cars in the living room floor and laughing at his daddy.

Thank you for praying for our Rock Star Eli.

With love,
