We visited Eli and ate some dinner. He looks as good as a kid who just had his chest cut open can. He’s stable and sedated. Since he is just going to lay there and we can’t touch him just yet, we’re going to head to our temporary home (thank you, Ziels) for the night and get some sleep. Thank you all for your prayers.
The doc told us Eli is doing really well. They took him off the heart-lung bypass and he’s getting along well. They’re in kind of a waiting period, trying to see how he reacts to being back to his own. The doc was very encouraged by what he’s seen thus far. So, now we just wait to hopefully see him soon. Thank you for all your prayers.
They had a bit of trouble getting Eli’s lines in, but they’re just about set to get started. Fortunately, he was sedated when they were doing all those things. In spite of the trouble, the doc said he’s doing just fine.
