Slow going

Just a quick update on Eli's progress. He is SLOWLY recovering. He is still intubated and slightly sedated at this point. They did attempt to extubate him last Saturday, and he failed. They might attempt it again this weekend. He is being fed through his G-tube. He was started on a small feed and SLOWLY increasing it to his full feed amount. This is to be sure he tolerates and digests his food properly. He hasn't had anything in his tummy for a few months now, so it needs to be stretched out.

Please continue to pray for:

  • healthy strong lungs for Eli.
  • endurance for Jason, Tanya, and Paige.

We are praying for you guys. Eli is a tough little man - he's been through more in his short little life than most adults - just more proof that he's a miracle and God is with him (and you) every step of the way. Thanks so much for the update. We'll continue to pray...

Dear Jason and Tanya,
May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble;
May the name of the God of Jacob defend you;
May He send you help from the sanctuary,
And strengthen you out of Zion
Psalms 20:1-2
We are always praying for you and Eli.
