After more then 5 days in CHLA Eli finally got the ok to go home early this morning. We got home at about 9AM but had to go back for day 6 of 12 of radiation for a 2:30PM appt. BH it went well and as usual bli ayin hora being home made a big difference in Elis mood and also him wanting to eat again. Eli will continue to be on the NG tube until the DR feels comfortable enough to remove it and he will be receiving feedings thru it each night until then.

We are looking forward to the next few days of enjoying family time with the cousins and uncle and aunts etc. Eli really enjoys their company and we hope to make the most of the few days that they will all be here.

We hope to continue to see daily improvements for Elimelech Ben Basya and hope that the medications and feeding he is receiving will help him gain the much needed weight and strength he has lost over the past few months. Thank you to the people who have reached out and helped this past shabos and the few days that Eli was in CHLA with hosting Bassy and the kids.

    25 years ago I was at Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles battling leukemia. That entire Gradon family led by Rabbi Gradon arranged for dozens of families to come together and daven for a speedy recovery. Fast forward 25 years to this past Sunday, I had the privilege and honor of having Rabbi Gradon speak under my Chupah and together we davened for Elimelech ben Basya. I davened and will continue to daven for Eli. There is a unique bond that I share with your family. I have been following this blog and want you to know that if there is anything I can do to help in any way, please let me know. Eli’s recovery feels very personal to me and I will continue to daven for a speedy recovery for Elimelech so that he will also stand under the chupah one day healthy and happy.

    Although I have yet to meet Eli, I have heard about his strength, bravery, and determination. I have no doubt that Eli will recover and be stronger than ever.

    Again, if you ever need something, please do not hesitate to call.

    Please tell Eli I say hello and if he ever needs something, I am here.

    Refuah Shelaima.
