Eli had a good last 24 hours. Yesterday they took the arterial line out of his belly button. Today they removed his chest drainage tubes and took him off the pacemaker. They’re also slowly weening him off of his pain meds and the ventilator. He’s no longer more machine than man. We were also told it’s likely that, in a few days, he’ll be moved upstairs to his own room.
I called the hospital a little while ago to see how he was doing; Eli’s doing well and isn’t requiring much attention (thus, his nurse was watching the news). The patient/nurse ratio there is 1:1, so with Eli doing well, she gets a bit of easy time.
Dave and Megan,
Praise God! It is amazing to daily see his progress. Thanks for the updates and pictures. This Grandma loves the pictures/videos!
Oh Little Baby Eli! I love him so much! I’ve been checking in as often as possible for updates and I love hearing the good news of his progress. I would LOVE to come visit, but I’ve been pretty sick for the past two weeks… so I will steer clear! But, please keep the updates (and pictures) comin’ and know that I am thinking about you three and praying for you! Take care of yourselves! Love you!
Happy Thanksgiving you three! We are soooo glad to hear about Eli doing well. We continue to keep him and you in our prayers. There is so much to be thankful for today!
Shanna, Aaron, Kaiya and Kade
