All I can say about this is wow.
My prayers are going up for this young man.
Elijah Moulton is doing well after receiving a liver, small bowel, pancreas, colon and stomach during the seven-hour procedure July 10 at Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital of New York-Presbyterian, doctors said.
He was born with total intestinal atresia, a malformation of the entire gastrointestinal tract that makes eating impossible.
Dr. Mercedes Martinez said at a news conference Friday that the boy would probably be moved to a rehab center on Monday, where he will spend as many as six weeks learning to eat. His release was delayed a few days because he was having difficulty breathing.
"He's doing so well right now," Martinez said. "He's gorgeous. He's looking around and smiling."
