Baby Elijah Update

About a year ago I had asked you all to pray for baby Elijah, who was born with a very rare disease, called Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis. I have updated you here and there over the past year, letting you know that he survived and is doing well.

I see them quite often at our church and have gotten to babysit the brothers here and there, although it’s been awhile since I’ve done that now, but these little boys are just precious! 

So anyway, here is the latest update on Elijah, from his mommy.

This shows his lungs, then and now.

Below she explains what the beads are about.

The fun part is the clinic nurses passed him around and he was all smiles. They gave him his Beads of Courage. Each bead represents a hospital treatment like a poke or a scan. It was really startling to see his journey as a bag-full of “events”. There were so many! Two of the beads represent 100 of something. Others, I know were short, such as his hospital stay beads, his “pokes” beads, and dressing change beads, etc. But still, it’s a remarkable picture to behold.”

Elijah is a sweet little guy and we are so blessed to know him and his family.

Thank you all for your prayers.
