We've created this blog to keep our friends and family updated on Elias' progress as he has surgery this week and then goes through recovery in the weeks to come. We figured this was the easiest way to communicate with everyone. So, check back occasionally for details on Elias. We'll try to post updates a few times this week while we're in the hospital.
We leave on Monday afternoon (11/27) to drive to Shriner's Hospital for Children in Erie, PA which is about 3 hours away. We'll stay in family housing at the hospital that night then Elias will have his surgery early Tuesday morning. The surgery is only 2 hours and the doctors anticipate Elias staying in the hospital for at least a couple of days. We hope to head back home on Thursday or Friday where Nani and then Grammie Lew will be coming to help out and give some TLC to their grandson.
We thank you so much for your support and prayers! We're nervous and sad about the days ahead of us, but we are peaceful and encouraged as well. Our God is big!
For those of you just joining us, the next post will be a quick synopsis of Elias' story.
