Prayers for Eli

My 3 almost 4 year old nephew Eli, Bryan's sister Amy's son, is in the hospital because his appendix burst. The infection had spread to much to be able to do surgery yesterday. He will be in the hospital on IV's for about a week and then he will go home, pending all goes according to plan, and be on a IV at home for about 4 or 5 weeks and then have the surgery to remove the ruptured appendix. I am asking to please keep Eli and his family in your prayers so that all will go according to plan so that his body will respond well to the antibiotics and that he will be able to come home as soon as possible. Thanks for the prayers!

Thanks Lindsay! Eli is responding really well to treatment and we're hopeful that he'll be released soon. We'll have him on med's @ home for a few weeks until he's ready to be operated on. Thanks for the prayers! They're helping!

Lindsay, thank you. Eli is home now, we are exhausted and just want to sleep for a couple days. Eli will be on IV antibiotics for another 2 weeks or so and then surgery in May. Thank you for your prayers and I hope you're feeling better.
