Although Eli is still struggling with nausea, he is keeping more food down the last couple of days. Praise God!
He also got a great night sleep the last couple of nights. He is responding so well to his chemotherapy that the doctors are starting to talk about letting him go home for a few days, sooner than expected!

Please continue praying, especially for the anxiety and excitement this brings. As well as prayers that the nausea will go away, for strength, healing and comfort.

I received word this week that Ben Ambrosino was in an accident on the interstate in Charlotte. He was hit by a semi and the driver of the truck didn't even see Ben's car (he had two friends with him). The semi merged into Ben's lane on drivers side. His car went under the semi and was drug sideways down the interstate. THANK GOD, no one was hurt. God was definitely present! That surely was terrifying.
Prayers of comfort and praise to God for the outcome.

After viewing the GI camera recording that Eli swallowed, the GI team shared the news that the camera discovered where the bleeding HAD been but the bleeding has stopped. This is very good news, meaning no surgery is needed and chemo can proceed as needed today. Thanks be to God!

Continue prayers of healing and recovery for Eli as well as strength and comfort for him and his family.

Eli is still dealing with nausea but was able to eat a couple of regular meals yesterday without getting sick.

Continue prayers for the nausea to subside. Pray for all the family for rest and protection against illness.

A new cycle of chemo started today and Tuesday Eli will have the first scan to observe the progress of reducing the lymphoma. Prayers for significant shrinkage of the tumor.
