Elijah Update (April 30)

Dear Friends,

Another day with HUGE changes for Elijah. Thank you for praying us through today.

Elijah underwent another surgery today to insert another plural-peritoneal shunt. There was discussion that the other shunt had ceased to work and our surgeon had order two "just in case". So, Elijah quickly went into surgery and is now recovering. He is on a vent just to give him a break, his shunt is working GREAT, the doctor was able to put in a line for him to get his medicines and we are excited for him. We are hoping that the breathing tube will be taken out soon so he can begin his feeding again.

We are looking forward to many more changes in Elijah. The absorption of his clots throughout his body, better circulation, and peace for his parents as they treat Hemophilia B.

We are grateful for all of you out there praying for us.

Still praying. I thank God for his work in this little guys life. What a message of persistence he is sharing with everyone. We will continue to cover this family in our prayers.
