A day of possibilities

Things are moving right along. This morning Chloe put together her hope beads, ate breakfast, got a chest x-ray, and took a shower. All her IV lines came out and the stickers that were on her tummy that the leads were hooked up to (for monitoring heart rate, oxygen levels, etc.) were all taken off. Her chest x-ray looked very good, and a prescription for pain medication that we will take home with us has been filled at the pharmacy here. So right now we are waiting for some discharge instructions and, of course, papers to sign. Chloe was very cheerful and alert this morning, but after all the activity, she is tired again. We will update again once we know more details, and hopefully we will be able to add some more pictures then - there is a problem again with the wireless connection. Please keep little Eric in your prayers too - he is the 5 year old who had surgery the same morning as Chloe, and we prayed with his mom in the waiting room. His chest tubes came out yesterday and he might get to go home today, which his mom is very excited about. Thanks!


  1. Yeah! So glad to hear you're going home soon. We love you! Aunt Phoebe

  2. What wonderful news! I'm sure you are anxious to be back together as a family again! Thanking God for His goodness and praying for continued healing at home!

  3. I'm glad to hear you're doing better, Chloe. It will be great for your family to all be back together again and for you to be home. I'm keeping you in my prayers all day long. Holland misses you and wants you back! :)

  4. Hey, Chloe

    I heard you could soon geet out of the hospital. I hated it in there when I was in the hospital but what helped me the most was Psalm 103. Remember just pray to God and he will always be with you and his love is all around you.

  5. Hi Chloe!
    Clayton has emailed me and everyone else in his class so many times. We are all praying for you. I hope that you get to leave the hospital soon and be back with your family! Read John 14: 27. It's my favorite verse. It will give you so much peace and comfort! Me and my family are praying for you!
    Peace be with you and all you love.
