December Update on Elijah

I have not updated in a while! We went 4 weeks without going to the doctor which was really nice for a change. We did go on December 11th but I just wasn't sure of the best way to post the news. First we did the blood sugar test.I have always past it with flying colors and I failed it. BOO... I don't really know what that means yet, we are still waiting on the results from the 3 viles of blood they had to take!! As far as the ultrasound goes... Believe it or not, I was not surprised one bit by what I saw. God had revealed to me the week prior while I was taking communion that I would see a normal size bladder and kidneys. And sure enough, to the surprise of everyone in the room, that is what we saw. However, doctors have to do their job and explain their medical opinion of why they were normal. Dr. Ross if you are reading this, you know I really love you and I appreciate EVERYTHING you have done for me. I know you have to do your job! :-) He told us that his heart rate was a little lower than it should be, and that his kindey's and bladder have just begun to totally shut down. He said Elijah only had two to three weeks to live. Normally my heart would have sunk but I had a total peace about it all. I left there rebuking the bad reports and saying that no man shall ordain my Elijah's days. Only God is the giver of life and all of Elijah's days are numbered in God's book. I also began praising God that those were new kidneys and a new bladder and that "He who began a good work in me will be faithful to complete it." I feel a little vulnerable telling you all this but I know that my God is so much bigger than any doctors words. Faith is believing that what we hope for will actually happen! Romans 3:4 " Let God be true and every man be a liar."
I am still claiming healing for Elijah. If God can speak the whole world into existance by his very words then he can surely do such a small thing. Psalm 107:20 is another verse that I am speaking over Him. "For I have sent my words and they have healed them and rescued them from the grave" Praise God that we can trust God's word. It will never return void and God cannot lie. Thank you all for continuing to believe with us!
As we all enter into such a special time of year, I hope we all remember the reason for the season. "John 10:10- "The enemy has come to steal, KILL and destroy but I have come so that you may have life and have it abundantly!" Merry Christmas Everyone!


  1. Well, Kelli, I am pretty sure that God delights in seeing us trust Him. " As for God, His ways are perfect," even the ones we don't understand. Thanks for the update. Still praying with you, LWH

  2. I'm praying and believing with you, Kelli. As I was reading your update, Jer. 33:6 popped into my head, "Behold, I will bring it to health and healing, and I will heal them, says the Lord, and I will reveal to them an abundance of peace and truth."

  3. Hi kelli, My name is Tammy Hoggle. My son-in-law posted something months ago. His name is Paul and my daughter Brittni Edwards. They used Dr. Gonzalas at Brookwood. Their baby was diagnosed with LUTO also. We went to Cincinatti twice and were never able to have anything done other than bladder taps and putting the fluid back in the sac. Finally at 25 weeks after trying for the third time to put a shunt in, Brittni's water broke, she stayed in Huntsville Hospital for one week and then was taken to Brookwood by ambulance where she was able to hold off delivering for one more week. Greyson Ryan Edwards was born on Dec.1
    He weighed 2 lbs 4ozs and 13 inches long. He was flown to Childrens Hospital and is in the NICU there. Although his bladder ruptured twice in utero and the doctors told us over and over again how devastating this diagnosis was. We have prayed and claimed healing for our precious Grey. My heart melts everytime I look at him. He is a Miracle! We continue to read your Blog and pray for Elijah. While I am thankful for doctors, I believe God has the final word! God bless you and your family!

  4. May peace and joy be with you all this holiday season and always. Our prayers remain with your family. We are in awe of your strength and faith. You are truly inspiring.

  5. Thanks for this update, Kelli. I have people from Evangel all time asking me for an update. Praying!
