The Great Escape

We are finally home!!!!

Elijah was able to have the Pic line inserted for antibiotic therapy at home. Due to the infection in the blood he has been under strict monitoring and since his fevers continue to spike, a CT Scan was ordered to rule out the spread of infection to his heart. Although the scan showed some fluid collection where the right lobe of the liver was, the overall results from the scan were favorable and we were released around 6:30 pm.

Elijah still has some pain - the source we can't seem to identify. But his appetite is up, as are his spirits, and we are so grateful to have him home.

He has more testing (renal, audiology, lab) on Friday. Once those results are known we will have a plan of action for chemo and followup therapy.

Thank you for your prayers, support, and love.
