Introducing baby Elliott

Our grandson came way too early, 23 weeks.  You can see how tiny he is comparing his size to the doctors hand.  His prognosis is not good, he coded immediately upon birth, but he's got some of my DNA, therefore, he's got some piss and vinegar in him, so he's hanging in there almost 24 hours later.

The medical staff has been amazing!  Watching them work on Elliott and performing huge miracles on this 1 pound, 12 ounce little miracle is humbling.  Elliott's little feet have left huge footprints on our hearts already! 


  1. Little Elliot sounds like a fighter. I will be keeping you all in my prayers.

  2. Oh Suzanne!! He does sound like a fighter!! I will be praying for you for sure! This is very near and dear to my heart because I am 25 weeks pregnant with our fourth son right now, and it just goes to show you how precious life really is. He looks beautiful and so teeny! *hugs*
