from Randy, Elijah’s father:
“Last night was restful for Elijah, as the doctors mandated minimal poking and prodding, in preparation for a surgery this morning to provide a new breathing apparatus that will minimize infection risk and allow for removal of the tubes from his mouth.
After the surgery, he had an elevated body temperature, as it spiked several degrees in a period of about half an hour. The nurses did a great job of bringing it back down in short order – we have had very caring nurses and support staff working with Elijah, and we are so thankful for them.
As I began writing this update, the hymn ‘It is Well With My Soul’ was playing. This is my testimony in prayer to the Lord. I don’t understand the circumstances, but I know the One who does. ‘I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait, and in His Word do I hope.’ Psalm 130:5. I am so thankful to each of you continuing to pray for Autumn and Elijah.”
