Hey, thanks for all the comments. To start today I wanted to give a big huge thanks to Levi's brother Isaac and his wife Stacey. They are the ones that set this blog up for us and I have gotten so many comments on how nice it has been for everyone to keep updated by this. So thanks so much for that. Elijah had an okay night, we were up a little more than the night before because they haven't been able to get the new seditation medication to where it's most effective. He seems to be coughing a lot and that is hard to watch because there isn't much we can do about it and his little face gets red as he tries to cough up the fluid in his lungs. It took awhile but they finally started the chemo last night at about midnight. They also started him on some food that is sent dirctly to his intestines so that he can get the nutrition that he needs (since he hasn't really eaten for 6 days). They also gave him a medicine to help him poop because he is recieving yet another oral medication that will burn his stomach if it sits in there, so they want to make sure everything stays moving so they don't have that problem. We want to say thank you for all of the things that everyone is doing for us, and for all the prayers that have been offered in Elijah's behalf, we are well aware that we have the best family and friends in the world! We will post another note today and let you all know how things are doing. We love you all!
