Here are the words of his parents from their Care Pages update today.
“Last night Elijah’s platelets and red blood count dropped so he
was given a blood transfusion. He also started breathing less for
himself, so they increased his oxygen and ventilation. He just
received his PET scan and is currently receiving an MRI. We have
just signed the consent forms to begin chemotherapy.
The doctors say that out of all of the kids who acquire LCH 90%
survive. However, infants who have it this systemically the
survival rate is closer to 55%.”
Please continue to keep little Elijah in your prayers.
