For 895 blessed, stressful, miraculous, heartbreaking, joyous, blood-curdling, exquisite up-and-down days, our sweet baby Elliot called the hospital "home." So did Bryan and I, taking turns caring for Violet and August, rotating from home to hospital until the lines forever blurred. 

During those near-900 days, the focus was effortlessly clear: Get Elliot healthy and home... for good. 

On August 2, that's just what we did. Our smiling, happy 2 year old toddler had his first taste of normalcy here, with his brother and sister! We laughed, played and sent prayers of gratitude to God for the opportunity to, finally, live as a family. 

Our joy was short lived. After 68 love-filled days, Elliot left us for the warm embrace of our Savior. He is no longer struggling for each breath, no longer dependent on a machine to live. We know that he is at peace, but here on earth our hearts are broken and our family is devastated. Our greatest fear has come to fruition and our strength waivers as we rock with grief. We are comforted by the memory of his smile and we try to embody the strength and will he so sweetly displayed every day as he bravely battled against odds no child should ever have to face - but it is so, so hard.

We now must be strong for our surviving children - and ask for help, though it is not in our nature. During the 2.5 years of Elliot's life, many things were put on hold. Work and finances take a backseat when you aren't sure your baby will survive the night. Final medical bills, funeral costs and more are gathering - and we also hope to be able to honor Elliot's memory in a way that helps others dealing with the same heartbreak. 

We are asking for help from our community so that we can "put our pieces back together" and begin to move forward without our beloved boy, comforted by the knowledge that we will one day be together again. 


Thank you for your love, prayers and support, 

Bryan, Sara, Violet, and August Newcomb
