My Story

My name is Elijah Robert Thomas Morris. I am 21 months old and I am here at Children's Hospital in Minneapolis, beating the odds in what is commonly a very deadly disease.

Everyday brings with it new challenges, but also great successes. Mommy and Daddy are with me around the clock and I feel safe knowing they are near. I miss going to the park and going down slides with mommy. Gabriel, my baby brother, will be here soon, and I'm pretty excited!!

With the prayers and support of many, I know that God is working a miracle in me. Thank you all so much, and I look forward to seeing you all soon :)

My name is Elijah Robert Thomas Morris. I am 20 months old and I am here at Children's Hospital in Minneapolis, beating the odds in what is commonly a very deadly disease.

It all started Wednesday morning at 0300 when my mom came to check on me and I had a very high fever. As the day went on, purple spots started appearing on my skin, and I couldn't keep anything down in my stomach. Mom and dad made an appointment at the Hutchinson Hospital and that's where the doctors discovered something was very wrong with my body. I was air lifted to Children's around 1730 Wednesday night and am now in a fight for my life.  

With all the prayers and support of many, I know that God is working a miracle in me. Thank you all so much, and I look forward to seeing you all soon, minus the machines, tubes, and everything else :)
