Eli is doing well. He is getting better and better every day. Our biggest challenge right now is keeping the splints on Eli's legs. His legs seem to swell up on occasion and then cause extreme discomfort, which requires us to remove the too-tight splints. Other times, his legs un-swell and his splints fall right off. We've been told to simply mange the splints...on, off, on, off (bath!!), on, off, on, etc. For the most part, Eli prefers them on. Either way, he still cannot get comfortable to sleep. He's used to tummy sleeping with his booty in the air. Now he cannot stick his booty in the air. And, when he rolls over he has blanket issues. Plus, most of the time he cannot roll himself over and he'll yell, "roll me over." To sum it up, David and Eli are sleep deprived.
We are counting down to the next Shreveport trip on Sept 20. We expect Eli to come home with prosthetic legs that he is learning to use. This will be my next big life moment...seeing my son walk. Can hardly wait.
Love you all,
