Elijah Melum's Journal
Written Nov 13, 2012 10:30pmWell we have a pre-op appointment tomorrow. We are hoping all the surgeons involved will be able to make it and will listen to our fears and questions openly. I also wanted to mention I have a prayer facebook page my cousin set up for us. If you'd like to follow along (and you are on facebook) you can find it here to click like on the page. https://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Prayers-for-ELI/483014765062169
Written Nov 6, 2012 4:27pmWe FINALLY have a date. Surgery is November 27th. My emotions are easily coming to the surface, but calming myself down is getting easier.
Written Oct 4, 2012 4:44pmWhile we don't have a date yet, it is official that Eli will be having surgery. The surgeon (because he is a geriatric doctor) has to get permission from Children's Hospital to do the surgery at their facility. He believes we will be able to do it this month. I think it will be longer knowing Children's, but the Lord knows. He will be having a carotid-subclavian bypass using his internal iliac artery.
