Eli spent most of the day at CHLA getting a blood transfusion which itself takes about 2-2.5 hours but the process before that is very long. First they need to triage him for his weight, temperature, blood pressure etc. Then they draw his blood and send it to the lab to see how much he needs and they make sure which apparently can happen that his blood type is the same. This whole process alone is 2-3 hours but BH Eli needed only what they expected and felt fine all day and thruought the process.

We are looking forward to a relaxing and uneventful shabos and 2nd days of YT and are hoping that by some miracle the surgeon will be available sooner then what they now have us scheduled for and that Elis blood counts will be good when we finally do get that call. Eli is looking forward to just being in shul and spending time with the family, cousins and friends and so are we.

Please keep Elimelech Ben Basya in mind in your tefilos etc as we continue on the road to a refua shelayma. Gut Shabos
