Specific Prayer Requests
We have some very specific prayer requests and ask that you join us in praying.
1. Pray that all the ‘unnecessary’ fluid in Eli’s body would drain out, dry out and stay dry for over 24 hours. As soon as his chest tube drainage dries up and is dry for 24 hours, we are able to go home.
2. Pray that Eli will start complying and taking his medication without any fuss. He is currently throwing a fit each time and spitting out much of the meds. This is frustrating the nurses, doctors and us – we’ve tried so many tricks and can’t seem to make it work. (Please let me know if you have any tricks that have worked for you or your little ones).
3. Pray that Eli will start eating more consistent meals, this will help with the medication regulation.
4. Pray for me, I’m so ready to be done with all of this and to go home with my boys. I don’t get to see Dave or Noah much and I miss both of them. Eli can sense my frustration and it causes him to stress out as well. My heart is hurting – my little man is suffering, I don’t get to see Dave much and I miss my sweet little baby.
Thank you so much for praying for Eli, for us and for Noah. We truly appreciate your prayers.
Hey Megan! I’m so sorry to hear about Eli. He is in my prayers!! Try making the medicine taking a game.make it fun for him that worked for me with Audreya being on daily meds for a year.
Megan-Praying for you all. Its so hard to be away from your baby anytime, and very hard to have one not feeling well, when there isnt much you can do to make them feel better.
Have you tried mixing Eli’s meds with pudding or yogurt? Annika had tonsilis over the weekend, and absolutely refused, fought us, and spit it out. Finally Howie suggested mixing it with pink yogurtcuz she loves her yogurt, and that’s been working great! hope this helps!
