So many positive things have happened since my last update. Elijah is getting stronger every day. He is breathing, eating, speaking all in his own. The trach has been removed!!! Elijah has a long way to go for his physical recovery but he is in good spirits and is ready to fight to regain his abilities.
We anticipate he will be at Mount Washingtonl for about 3 more weeks and then hopefully off to QLI in Nebraska.
So far your donations have provided the materials for a wheelchair ramp into the home, a roll in shower, and a shower chair for Elijah. we are extremely grateful
We have a long way to go to reach the goal of $250,000, Please donate if you can, and share with your network. We appreciate it

Yesterday marks two weeks at Mt. Washington Pediatric hospital and positive things are happening for Elijah. He is gaining strength and weight. He is breathing room air now and his lungs are looking strong. His trach was downsized, and he will begin trials with capping it next week. We are hopeful it will be removed before he comes home.
With the help of the awesome speech therapy team he is talking!!!!!! He had swallow tests and did very well. I was able to take soft food to him the last two days. They still have him on low stimulation because of his brain injury. He gets headaches and dizzy with too much activity.
Elijah has a long way to go, but he is looking better each day. They estimated the length of his stay between 8 to 12 weeks. I have applied to a Non-profit in Nebraska that specializes in spinal cord injuries for continued recovery beyond the pediatric hospital. Please say a little prayer for his next step.
