We just spoke with Dr. Gates who said Elijah's surgery went very well. It is over. We can sigh with relief, but I really still want to cry.
Elijah was able to keep his heel pad...that will be his stump...I'm not sure I like the word stump, but for now, I will use it.
Thank you for continuing to pray. Please pray Elijah doesn't miss his feet and that he has NO pain. Pray that he can rest and have peace. He's been anxious since we arrived. The minute we pulled up to the hospital he started crying. He knew...not that his feet would be taken...but that he would not have a fun time at this great hospital.
The child life specialist made a mold of Eli's precious feet for me. I should have known that this great place would be a step ahead of me.
We love you,
