I've added a few albums of Pics of Elijah: http://photobucket.com/ElijahWilliams
After more than 6 hours of shear agony, Elijah is finally resting. The epidural has eased its way out and what was once a numb area with no indication of trauma other than a large surgical scar, now is a source of concern for all and intense pain with every deep breath for Elijah. Over the course of several hours he has received Morphine, Toradol, and Lortab. What finally gave him relief? An intravenous dose of Benadryl! Although he's been asleep for less than 30 minutes, I'm now hopeful his pain will subside with each passing hour.
Anesthesia has been called for a new consult in the morning to assess the source of the pain (the intensity and location may indicate more than the obvious).
As always you are appreciated and cherished. Please continue sending out your love and prayers.
