Eli Update from Children's Hospital

We got to the ER at Seattle Children's Hospital, on Wednesday at 4:15 pm.  They took x-rays and blood work.  Nothing showed up.  Same stuff we'd already had done in Yakima, but they have to follow their protocol.
Finally got up to a room at 10:15 pm.  It was a long night.  We are on auto-pilot today.


We woke up this morning to find a massive snowstorm hit Seattle!  Seattle!  Of all places...and times!
Lon went home last night around midnight....as he needed to go into work this morning.  He got back this morning by 8 am.  He got about 1 hour of sleep....and had to drive in the storm.  God gives us strength when we need it....it's the ONLY way to explain how we are functioning.

Eli is on lorazepam....and it drugs him into a stupor.  He slept all night!  Even slept in!  (If you follow me on Facebook, you'll know how crazy early our mornings are!!)  Then was awake less than two hours....and fell asleep again.  He's awake now and doing Ok.

Doctors made their rounds, and the Attending came in to let us know the plan for the day.
We are waiting for a GI doctor to come and visit.  They are going to pursue reflux issues.

If needed, they'll call Neurology....but at this point it doesn't seem to be seizures.  Praise God!

We have a roommate.  A precious one month old baby that really needs your prayers!
Meet:   R Leriah and her Mommy...

So as we wait around for tests and such....here is what Eli is doing:
Listening to Elmo and the Orchestra on his MP3 player...and watching Finding Nemo on the DVD player.
I'll update as I know more.
Don't forget to add us to your prayers chains....we need all the help we can get!
Thanks!
