Elijah is in a great deal of pain. Perhaps the most pain after any of his nearly 15 surgeries. He cries in terror whenever we change his diaper or pick him up. He remains on the pain pump, but his pain persists. I also think he is scared of the potential pain. I know it will improve day by day, hour by hour, but it is very hard for us to watch.
Elijah's experiences age him. I know I haven't experienced the level of pain he has endured in 3.5 years. Wish I could go through it for him.
We are unsure if we will be making the journey home tomorrow or having to stay another night. I know the ride home will be very hard on Eli.
Thank you all for praying for our sweet child. We treasure you.
