|Eli and David at Top of the Rock in NYC|
Elijah is learning more and enjoying his time at home. He starts public school for a few hours a day on Monday and back to the Little Light House on Wednesday. We're excited to get the routine rolling again.
A few weeks ago Eli had his 16th surgery. New tubes put in his ears and a scheduled adenoidectomy. But, the ENT discovered Eli didn't have much adenoid tissue so the adenoidectomy didn't happen. That led us on an adventure analyzing Elijah's immune system since the adenoids and tonsils are part of the lymph system, which feeds immunity. The infectious disease doc doesn't think Eli has an immunodeficiency, which is very, very good news.
My apologies for our long stints between posts. Honestly, since I started the new job that I love, I haven't posted as much. Those two things might not be related, but who knows.
We love you all and appreciate your prayers for Eli. Please pray for his ability to walk. For those of you tracking, you know it's been about a year that he has had prosthetic legs...he still isn't able to walk independently. He is making progress, but it is extremely slow. Keeping my positive attitude about it is being tested for sure. He deserves to be able to walk where an when he wants. I want that for him.
Love and gratitude,
