Baby Eli’s Rare Condition Hasn’t Stopped Him From Being The Cutest Baby On Facebook

#1 Baby Eli

On March 4, 2015 a very special baby named Eli Thompson came into the world – but had one major problem his mother noticed as she looked at him. Congenital Arhinia is the extremely rare condition with only 47 CASES so far. = So of course, doctors had no idea what to do, so Eli was taken from his mother.

#2 Live Or Die

His mother didn’t know if her baby would live or die.”That entire night, I was scared, alone, & confused,” she wrote on her GoFundMe page. “I called every 15 minutes to ask if my child was still alive.”


#3 The Problem

Doctors finally realized that Eli wouldn’t be able to eat and breathe at the same time. So he underwent a tracheostomy to make an opening is made in the windpipe to allow breathing. But he wasn’t out of the woods yet…


#4 Intensive Care

Eli spent weeks in the neo-natal intensive-care unit, but he proved that having no nose wasn’t going to bring him down. As he grows he will need to undergo surgeries every year or two for reconstructive surgery until he reaches puberty.
