He was a cute, mostly happy little fighter who gave everyone a lot of happiness ... at least that is my take on it. RIP Elijah.

Lori, thanks for checking in with QZ.

Elijah was my 2 year old nephew,who was born almost 3 months premature. His intestines started to die within a few days. They operated on him to take care of this. But he only weighed a little over one pound. He was in the hospital almost a year before he could come home. In the meantime his mommy had another little boy (oops!) His name is Jacob. Because of the intense medicines he had to take, it damaged his liver. So he was put on the transplant list here. He only stayed out of the hospital a few months at a time. He couldnt eat through his mouth and was attached to a feeding tube and I.V's full of life sustaining fluids. By the time a liver donor became available, he was critically ill. So his doctor decided to do a 5 organ transplant. On Thanksgiving day none the less! He did very well at first. And was on the local and nationwide news. The only other one in Indiana did not make it. Around the first of January, last year, he started to develop a virus that only transplant patients get.He was put on a respirator to help him breath. His Dr. had antibiotics flown in from Florida. He said if he did not see an improvment in a week he had to discuss taking him off life support. On January 18th at 1:00 I got a phone call from my Brother saying they were going to unhook him from life support. We made the 2 hour drive to Riley Hospital, which felt like 9 days. At 4:00 pm the doctor unhooked the final breathing tube, the only one that was keeping him alive, and handed him to his mother. We all watched as he died in his mothers arms.
I'm sorry. I wrote a book didnt I? He was so special. I have pictures of him if you would like to see him. This was after one of his long stays in the hospital,before the surgery. Thanks

I cannot fathom what that must be like, especially holding your child once life support has been removed.

Best wishes to your family, Lori.

God bless you and your family, especially Jacob.
