Mondays are for Miracles

Our Monday Miracle Child is…. Elijah


At 13 weeks gestation, Elijah was diagnosed with a rare and fatal condition called Lower Urinary Tract Obstruction which prevented him urinating while in the womb. He was given a 1 in 10 chance to survive the pregnancy. At 16 weeks, fetal surgery was performed to remove the blockage, and he was born at 36 weeks via emergency C-section. He was immediately admitted to Wolfson Children’s Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit where he was diagnosed with Eagle-Barrett Syndrome. He has had numerous surgeries, the most recent in 2015, and remains at risk for urinary tract infections that result in hospitalization. Despite all he has been through, Elijah is an amazing little boy who has beat incredible odds. He is a true miracle!
