We were informed this morning that a liver transplant will definitely be needed based off of the preliminary liver tests. The liver looks to have suffered too much damage. The doctors are extremely pleased with how his body is handling everything (alertness, etc.) - which will help when the transplant occurs. We are praying now that a good, compatible liver (that is the correct size) becomes available - and that the procedure and recovery goes smoothly when the time comes.

We are thankful that the rest of his body is so responsive, and that the medicine will continue to keep many of his levels in check.


  1. Wow! We will keep praying for these specific things.

  2. OK. Whew! We're trusting the Lord along with you, and praying for you fervently,

  3. Dear Kip and Cat,
    We are praying for you and lifting Eli up to the Lord for healing. I am praying Psalm 121 for you all.
    I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
    where does my help come from?
    My help comes from the LORD,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.
    He will not let your foot slip—
    he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel
    will neither slumber nor sleep.
    The LORD watches over you—
    the LORD is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day,
    nor the moon by night.
    The LORD will keep you from all harm—
    he will watch over your life;
    the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
    Love, Linda & Russ
