BH another day that was headed in the right direction and all we can say is “halevay vayter”.

Elimelech Ben Basya lrefuah shelayma bsoch shaar choley Yisroel amen


Beezrat Hashem we should be Zoche to continue seeing many more days with as much progress as Eli had today. He was in a very good mood and ate a very nice amount a few times today.

Please continue having Elimelech Ben Basya in all your tefilos so we can get to the ultimate goal of a refua shelayma BKAROV


Bli Ayin Hora Eli had a very good Shabos a lot of which he spent resting and sleeping. Slowly it seems that he is getting back his strength ad has been having more of an appetite to eat more food. It seems for now that until all of Eli’s treatments are beezrat Hashem done we will be keeping home from school as he physically isn’t up for it and neither do we CV want to risk him catching anything that can be contagious.

For now there is nothing on the schedule until a DR appt next week to see that Eli is up and ready to start the last round of immunotherapy which is now scheduled to begin 1/12/14. Until then we are going to be working on ard on getting Eli to full strength.

Please as always continue to have Elimelech Ben Basya in all your tefilos. A GUT VOCH


We look forward to IYH continuing the current trend. Eli had a good night sleep and woke up feeling happy and in a good mood. Most of the day he was home but he was eating and getting around a lot better then he has been of late.

Slowly but surely Eli BH continues to recover from the flu and is regaining some strength. He felt pretty good almost all day but we went to the DR to check out what can be causing the chest pains. They drew Eli’s blood work and took a chest x-ray and both were pretty normal. So we will just have to keep an eye on Eli and make sure it only gets better.

Eli still isnt up to doing much but is eating and drinking a little more each day which will beezrat Hashem help him gain back the few pounds he lost in the hospital last week.

As always please keep Elimelech Ben Basya in all your tefilos


For the most part we had a enjoyable day and even made it to the beech for a bike ride. I say for the most part because Eli has been having unexplained chest pains which do not cause any not normal breathing it just puts him in a lot of pain for anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or 2. Hopefully it will get better on its own or we will have it checked out further. It started almost 2 weeks ago and was checked out during his stay in the hospital and the DRs didn’t feel it was anything to worry about.

Eli ate some more solids today and beezrat Hashem he will continue eating more daily to help rebuild some needed weight and strength.

Bli Ayin Hora Eli is now moving in the right direction after going downhill for the last while. He physically looked and felt a lot better and for the first time in more then 2 weeks he took a few bites of soup. We hope this continues at a faster pace so Eli can get back on track and gain back the weight he has lost while fighting the flu.

Eli got out quite a few times today for walks which he really loves. He was then visited by his rebbi Rabbi Weiner which made him feel very special. We look forward beezrat Hashem to sharing good and better news daily.

Thank you all for continuing to have Elimelech Ben Basya in all your tefilos and please continue to do so.


Not much to report other then we are working on helping Eli on what seems like a very slow recovery process. Hopefully IYH as Eli gets over the flu the recovery will pick up speed. The one thing that Eli has been enjoying is taking very long strolls getting fresh air which has been helping with his extreme nausea.

Please have Elimelech Ben Basya in your tefilos in the hopes that he will kick this flu and get back on his feet literally BKAROV


Eli was finally home at 11AM today after a long week in the hospital. We look forward to doing everything possible to help him get back to himself which as of now seems like a very long road. Eli definitely enjoyed the fresh air which he didn’t get any of all week.

There was definitely some improvement over Shabos however there is a long road just ahead just to get Eli back to where he was prior to this weeks unplanned hospitalization. He hasn’t left his bed all week, and hasn’t been physically able to do any excercise. Aside from being extremely sick because the DRs are nervous that he is contagious they didn’t allow for him to leave the room which is something that nearly every day he normally does to go out for a few minutes for fresh air. After discussions/arguments I finally convinced the on call DR to let Eli go home today right after Shabos as long as I sign some AMA (against medical advice) forms. The problem then came that the social workers have a new rule that they report anyone that does that to Child Protective Services who can be extreme reshoyim. So there goes that plan and we cant leave. Then I altered the DR that their math is incorrect as they said that Eli needs to be on IV medication 7 days which began Monday yet they don’t want to discharge him until Monday which is 8 days. So BH I won that argument and beezrat Hashem they will discharge Eli as soon as he takes the IV medication in the morning on Sunday.

We have a long road of slowly getting Eli literally back on his feet for the next few days and weeks and IYH we will succeed and get him as strong as ever. The next scheduled treatment is round 7 of 7 of immunotherapy scheduled to start in 2 weeks from Sunday (Jan 5).

There are a ton of people that we always need to thank but this extremely difficult week was made a lot easier with the non stop help with food from Rabbi Ten and Bikur Cholim and their volunteers, Rabbi Korf from Chabad of Los Feliz who came many times this week to visit including on Shabos as always. Then there is my mother who has come every morning this week and every week and doesnt for a second ever stop thinking/calling/ doing/davening for Eli and making everything eaier on us and so that I can take the kids to school and get to work at a early hour before Bassy takes over.

This Shabos I was lucky to have 2 good friends for the seudah in CHLA Yakov Goldstein and Yossi Wilshansky who made a usually extremely boring Friday night into a entertaining and enjoyable one for both me and Eli. Then of course Rabbis Ten and Korf walked in to visit Shabos afternoon to make the day feel semi normal and then we had a special visit from my brother Reuven and Ron Kreisel who is ALWAYS there for us and Eli anytime to give us a break or take care of anything we need. So to all these people we may not properly be able to show you how much you mean to us but you really mean the world and have made a Very tough situation a lot more manageable and to thank we thank you.

On that note please daven that Elimelech Ben Basya is sable to leave in the morning and have a good solid week of only yeshuas and a week of gaining weight, strength and beezrat Hashem good health. A GUT VOCH
