Eli's Good Report

Praise the Lord, who hears the prayers of His people and answers so generously! Today we found out that the extra artery valve in Eli's heart has closed up, thanks to the medicine! I cried when we found out- the Lord is so good to us.

Eli is making so much progress in every area- he's gained 5 ounces already, chunking him up to 3 pounds, 2 ounces. :) He got taken off the ventilator on Friday, too, which makes him so much more comfortable, and so much more vocal, too. :) We can hold him now any time we want because we don't have to worry about the ventilator tube in his throat. He's eating again and doing great with that. And they say that in a couple days he'll "graduate" to the next nursery level, where they just focus on fattening the babies up. He's so cute! We are absolutely in love with him.

THANK YOU for your prayers. We can't express how grateful we are.
