This is Kristi, Kelli's sister with an update from Brookwood Hospital. At approximately 8:15am this morning, Elijah Christian Wright was born 7lbs 6oz! Kelli delivered by C Section and is doing wonderful!
Baby Elijah is in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit now fighting as hard as he can. When he was born, Kelli and Les heard him cry were able to touch his sweet little hand and see him before he was wisked away by the wonderful team that is here at Brookwood.
However, when he cried, his tiny little lungs were to small to take in the air and they popped. They have a few holes in them now, but the team has a breathing tube in his mouth and chest tubes in his lungs to keep oxygen in his lungs and through his body! He also has an IV in his little belly button to keep him full of fluids.
We have already witnessed a complete miracle in his birth so far, but we are still praying for complete healing of his body! Please help us and continue to pray that God will heal his body and strengthen and grow his lungs so that they can take him off all the breathing machines! His lungs are the most critical right now! His body needs more oxygen to maintain! Please pray now for healing in his lungs!!
Baby Elijah has a head full of dark hair, the cutest little button nose and his skin feels like soft velvet! He looks a little bit like Abbie when she was born!
Thank you all so very much for your continued prayers! We still believe that Elijah will be healed by the Power of Jesus Christ!
Love you all! I will continue to keep you all updated!
