Quick Update

Time has really gotten away from us these last few months. All of our focus has been on Eli and Maggie. Eli has reached the point were it is time for his second surgery. This last month has been filled with more doctors appointments then I can count. And the last few weeks we have noticed a change in Eli. The first surgery that he had was only a temporary fix. Eventually the shunt that is in his heart reaches a point that it will no longer meet his needs. We knew this surgery was coming, however it wasn't expected this soon. These last 3 weeks Eli has shown that now is the time. It has been very difficult to see him grow more weary and require oxygen to maintain decent saturation's. We've experienced many days and nights watching him and closely monitoring him at home. We are relieved and also very anxious that the second surgery is here. The surgery is tomorrow at 7:30am and should last 4-5 hours. Please pray for our son, the doctors and nurses. We could use your prayers too. We can't describe what it is like to see your child after a surgery like this.

Our son is so strong. We are so proud to call him ours. These last few months have been hard but it is such an honor to serve our son.

  1. Kati I'm praying for Eli and your family tonight and tomorrow. Eli is such a beautiful boy and I look forward to seeing him recovered and oxygen free next time you're at bible study.
