Elijah’s been released!

Today is a very, very happy Mother’s Day! About an hour ago, Elijah got to leave the hospital nursery! His blood oxygen level had been stable for more than 24 hours without any supplemental oxygen, and so we are all enjoying Elijah together as a family for the first time. The girls are so happy to see him.

Although he is now with us, the doctors would like us to stay close (in the hotel) for at least a night before we head back home. It’s about a two-hour drive to our house from the hospital, so we’ll stay close for a day just in case of any complications.

Thanks for your prayers, and please keep praying for little Elijah. And Happy Mother’s Day!

–Luke ______ ¡Qué día de mamá! Hace una hora, los doctores dieron de alta a Elijah. Él ha sido estable por mas que 24 horas sin oxygeno suplemental, entonces estamos disfrutando estar con él como una familia completa por la primera vez. Las dos hermanas mayores están muy felices.

Aunque está con nosotros, los doctores los gustaría que estemos cercas por una o dos noches mas, en caso de cualquier emergencia. ¡Pero tenemos esperanza de regresarnos pronto a Pachuca!

Gracias por las oraciones, y ¡qué tengan muy feliz día de mamá!

–Lucas

a quick update When I (Lindsay) went in to give Eli his 9am bottle today…he was off oxygen! No oxygen tent, no tubes beside him, nothing! This is big. If he can

A few new Pictures We are all doing exceptionally well. I think we may be turning a corner on all our family sickness. We are thoroughly enjoying being a family of 5!
