His platelet count was very low (86,000) and Neutrophil count is 270 among other numbers that don't look good. Most likely we will wait it out and things will go back to his "normal". But for now, we have the same little happy, healthy looking boy who we had before we heard the "numbers."
Does this change things? It reminds us that Elijah's health is fragile and that our faith can be too. I immediately worry instead of drawing on the strength and promises that God has given us. I need a Father, a "Dad" at times like these. I have not had one here on earth for a long time, but I do have a Father that never fails and that lifts me up and holds on tight until we weather this storm...Please join me in prayer for little Elijah...we go on his make-a-wish trip on January 27th and we so want him to be healthy for it.
