Update on Little Eliseo

I know many have been waiting and checking for an update. I (Jaynee) was at the hospital all day with our little guy and Daniel had the children along with the normal Sunday church services.
Thank you first so much for praying~ so many have written and just encouraged and blessed us by letting us know they are lifting up Eliseo and our family to our Heavenly Father. We are resting in Him knowing that He has a plan and purpose for everything.
The doctor said that Eliseo is stable. They took him off the oxygen today and started tube feedings last night. His respiratory rate is still around 80. Once it reaches 60 or below, they will allow me to hold him and begin nursing him.
I sat by his little incubator most of the day. They let me touch him and even kiss him a couple of times which did my mommy heart good. :) One of the nurses even let me change his diaper.
It's just after midnight and I'll go back to the hospital early tomorrow morning. The doctors do not yet say when he can come home...it's dependent on his respiratory rate being in the normal range so he can begin nursing.
As I sat in the hospital today, I was thanking the Lord for the situation. I Thess. 5:18 says "In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." During our time in the hospital, we have been able to meet and talk to so many people about the Lord. I spent about and hour today talking to Eliseo's nurse about our family, why we are here and share with her the gospel. I spent about a half hour talking with his evening nurse as well. Though I dearly miss my other children (they are not allowed in the hospital here) I have had much time to pray for them and spend time in the Word. Thank you all so much for praying. We'll update again as soon as we are able.


  1. have been keeping up with little eliseo. i too had a little boy in the intensive care here in texas last year. God was so present during that time and i was thankful. our sam is now eight months old and doing well (much to his sisters' delight) i will continue to pray that soon you would be able to hold him. it will soothe your aching arms. praying for your ministry as well.

  2. Dear Heavenly Father,
    Hold my dear friend in Your loving arms. Give her strength to cope with the current situation, for you know her mother's heart even as she seems so strong. Bless the time alone with her little one and You dear Father. May this be a time of renewal and reflection. Be with her family as she is away. Give her husband wisdom and courage for each new and unfamiliar moment as he leads his family and ministry. Bless this family Lord. Their hearts are for You. Bring their newest addition home quickly, that he may nurse from his awaiting mommy. May Jaynee find the peace that's in You Lord Jesus, and may the desire of her heart bring glory to You. In Jesus' name, Amen.

    I am praying dear Jaynee... constantly... please keep us posted as you can.

  3. First, I meant to say in the previous post's comment section...HE IS ADORABLE!! I know your whole family is thrilled and can't wait to get him home. I am still checking and praying.

  5. Hi Jaynee,
    Praying for you all! I know the Lord is allowing the situation as you shared already about the different ones he is bring across your path, your being a vessel. Your baby is already being a tool in the Lord's hands for his kingdom. Many blessings, Cindy
