Friday night was one of the more inspiring I have personally ever had. After taking a short walk with Eli once Shabos began I told Eli I was going to daven and then eat the seuda with him. We sang together kabalos shabos and then when I finished Maariv Eli took the siddur and davened every word. He felt a lot older the whole shabos being that it was his hebrew birthday and expected and got birthday wishes from most of the nurses. Shabos morning after we davened we spent most of the morning and early afternoon playing a few different games.
We were then visited by Rabbi Korf who told Eli a few different stories which he thoroughly enjoyed and helped break up a long day. We took a few walks around and had a few bites and relaxed most of the rest of the day. Late in the afternoon Uncle Reuven and his friend came to visit which we very much appreciated as well. For some odd reason after all was going so well today and the NG tube level being raised on schedule Eli came down with a fever. As always they take a blood culture which takes up to 48 hours to get results and they immediately put him antibiotics to combat any infection CV.
We hope Elis body will continue to accept the feedings its getting at the rate he needs to reach so that IYH he can go home Monday morning as long as they don’t give us a hard time with this fever which hopefully will pass.
Please as always continue to daven for Elimelech ben Basya and all cholim and we hope that this unexpected bump in the road which already is longer then initially told will end and allow Eli to go home in good health Bkarov. A GUT VOCH
