Elijah Update (5)

Dear Friends,
I don't even know what to say. We are numb right now. The rollercoaster of emotions has gotten to us and we are weary.

Elijah is now in PICU at Wesley Medical Center in Wichita. He is on a ventilator and is stable while they figure out what is going on with him. When we left Children's Mercy in Kansas City we knew that his life may be very short. We witnessed him getting stronger and stronger every day until Friday. When he was having struggles with his breathing at home we were not sure what the problem was. Perhaps maybe we could help him get over this obstacle. We felt God leading us to get him back to Wesley. The moments at Children's Mercy were dark for us, now everything seems even darker for me. It is hard to make decisions for our little man. If this episode leaves us with nothing more to do, then we have to once again make a decision. We were just surprised on Friday with this sudden change. God is still in control and good. We just do not understand.

Please join us in prayer for Elijah's life right now, for God's will to be done. Maybe he is finished with him on this earth and wants him to be whole with him in heaven. Maybe he is not finished with him here. We just want God's will to be done.

Joel, Judy (Saca) and Elijah Fitzgerald

I will put Elijah on our church prayer list. We pray for it out loud ever Wednesday night.Could you tell me in short what is wrong so we can pray for him more clearly. If you have time email me at slgb65@yahoo.com . How old is he and what have the doctors said. I am sorry for your pain. I will pray for Elijah. May the peace of God guard your hearts. May the presence of the Holy Spirit be powerful in his room so that all who enter may know the glory of God.May they know without a shadow of a doubt that we serve a miraculous God.
Your sister in Christ
