Keep praying

Thank you all for praying for Elijah. Please keep him in your prayers. Last night, his blood oxygen levels dropped, and it was necessary to increase the concentration of oxygen going to his tent.

This afternoon, the doctors did an echocardiograph to try to determine if there was any underlying heart condition that was preventing adequate oxygenated blood flow. Thankfully, they were unable to find any heart condition. In looks like it’s just because his heart and lungs are still developing.

This evening he was stable and seemed to be doing well. It looks like he’s on track, but that he’s going to need to be in the hospital longer than we expected.

Thanks again for your prayers.
