Update on our little fighter.
With all the struggles that Eli went through over the last 48 hours we have found out new information. Unfortunately Eli has suffered a brain bleed on top of everything. It is considered mild a level 1 but this makes for more testing and stress. He has been on a EEG all day and what we know is he is not suffering from seizures from the bleed and the doctors also do not see anything else as well. However to make sure he has no permanent damage he will also be receiving a MRI on Sunday.
The good news would be levels are trending down still the Lactate level is down to a 9.8 and everyone is happy for this. Eli is carrying a lot of fluid on his body which is to be expected but some is collecting on his lungs now.
We need to continue to receive support for Elijah and that he continues to stabilize and pass his daily tests and get good results, as his surgery is still scheduled for Monday.
I will leave you with a song that I sang all night to Eli and it puts everything into perspective for me.
Lest I’m tempted to forget, I’ll tie your love around my neck, I’ll write your words upon my heart Lord I wont forget how good you are. I’ll dwell upon your faithfulness I’ll rest within your promises and when I’m walking through the dark Lord I won’t forget how good you are. I will trust, I will trust you.
