3 weeks Post Op

Our dearest Family & Friends...

I hope this message finds everyone doing well, feeling great and ready for the Thanksgiving holiday.
It's been about 3 weeks since surgery and Elijah is doing well. He is still challenged physically by a few things but is almost back to 100%! His appetite is great, he's sleeping fairly well, and he even enjoyed a play date this weekend with his buddy Alison.

He recently had the picc line removed and will only need one more blood test this week to make sure his little body is free from infection. He will then be monitored for a few more weeks to make certain he is able to withstand the effects of chemotherapy.
Please don't forget I will be making a scrapbook for Elijah of all of your wonderful comments on this blog so please leave a message. Simply go to "comments", write your comment (don't forget to sign your name), then click "anonymous" to post without having to create an account.
Our sincerest gratitude for all of your prayers-please keep them going,

We are so thankful to God for His blessing Elijah to continue to do better and better. We lift him up in prayer every day and continue to stand on God's word "by His stripes Elijah is healed"! To you, Randall and Cousin Margo continue to stay strong ... we love you all.
