A New Day

It is Wednesday morning. Chloe had a very good night. Her rash is gone, she hasn't had arrythmia in hours, and her breathing tube came out shortly after midnight. She is breathing on her own, just room air, although they might give her some oxygen for a little while today. She is receiving pain medications, but when she is asked if she is hurting, she shakes her head no. The nurses say what a great patient she is, because she is so mild mannered. They ask if she is always this good, and of course we say yes!

The doctors rounded this morning and were pleased with her progress. They plan to move her out to the general floor some time today. We could not ask for anything more, and we are awed and humbled by our awesome God and His provision for Chloe. We are grateful too for His people who have constantly been lifting Chloe up in prayer. Later today, we hope to read the comments and emails to her. She is very drowsy and only whispering a few words to us, but she will be able to listen to all the encouraging words.


  1. We are all so thankful for your progress Chloe! We can't wait until you get home and can play with Bella Sara cards together! We will keep praying for you!

    Love Sara and Emily Asselin

  2. What a great blessing! So glad to hear that things went well for you guys last night! Another big sigh of relief, right? Great job, Chloe!

  3. Chloe, you are amazing and our God is awesome!

    Jeff and Charity, you guys have not been far from my thoughts. I'm so glad that your rollercoaster is having more ups than downs!

  4. What a blessing and relief for sure. God is good.

  5. Hello Chloe, you don't know me, but i was just on a trip with your grandpa. He speaks quite highly of you! From what i have heard and read about you, you seem like a strong and loveable young woman. I hope you are doing better and better, and my family is so glad to hear how well you are doing. we serve an awesome God, don't we? much love, Jaclyn Alcumbrack

  6. Wonderful news! Rejoicing with you and praising God for his goodness!
    Psalmn 103:1-5
    Praise the LORD, O my soul;
    all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
    Praise the LORD, O my soul,
    and forget not all his benefits-
    who forgives all your sins
    and heals all your diseases,
    who redeems your life from the pit
    and crowns you with love and compassion,
    who satisfies your desires with good things
    so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.

  9. God has a very special plan for your life Chloe! Your life has already impacted our family in that when our infant son Ethan had heart surgery your family reached out with encouragement to us from what you have been through. We will continue to pray for you to have a complete recovery!
    Terri Nicholls and family

  10. I am so glad you're getting better. I woke up this morning thinking about you. My kids will be happy to know that surgery went well. God bless.

  11. Hi Chloe! You don't know me but your grandpa Ray (RVL?) taught me that I need to love God with all my heart. I am praying for YOUR heart so you can keep loving God with all your heart too! I am so glad God fixed your heart again. Wow - he loves you sooooooooo much! Say "hi" to your mom and dad for me!

    Jeff and Charity - I can't imagine the heartache through this for YOU! I trust God continues to meet you there. GREAT website you guys.
