The Power of Prayer

Lastnight Renae left a comment saying she had tried to post an update on Chloe's progress, but she couldn't get it to work.


Poor girl. She tries - she's just not technically minded!!


Fortunately for Renae, she's so good at such a host of other things that it doesn't really matter!
Anyway this is what Renae wanted everyone to know:









I just spoke with Jennifer (Chloe's mum), and you will not believe this! They have already taken many of Chloe’s tubes out. She simply doesn’t need them. And they decided to move her out of ICU already! Except, there was no bed available, so she will stay in ICU one more night, and move to a regular room tomorrow. They expected her to be in Intensive Care for a long, long time, but we are seeing the power of prayer in her life!

Chloe has always had a bit of an olive complexion. Lovely, lovely girl. But now, her mother says she is as pink as a rose! Her counts (don’t ask me what counts) are dropping, which is proof that her new liver is already doing its job!

Today, Chloe has been awake, and has said, “Mama,” “eye,” “meow,” and countless, “What’s that?” “What’s that?” “What’s that?”, while pointing at various things.

She has not smiled yet. But under the circumstances, I don’t blame her.

We need to continue to pray that she does not get any infections or illnesses; it is crucial that she stay very healthy in the coming weeks.

Also pray for sleep for Jennifer and Mike.

Thank you all so much for your continued prayers! God is answering them, big time! Love you all.

–Renae



Now, isn't that just the best news you've heard all day?

In answer to your question: It's a bit in limbo, and I'd rather hold on to it until it's for sure, but yes I got some promising news today.

Kit Brookside said...

That is such great news! I have been keeping this one close - she is just a few weeks older than my little boy...I can't imagine what those poor parents have been going through!

Daryl said...

Wonderful indeed .. and it sounds as if she will be going home soon too ... I am sure its a blood cell - red or white - count.

Thank you all so very much! There is no doubt in my mind that prayers going up, around the world, have played a huge part in Chloe's progress.

And thanks, Jackie, for picking up the slack for my technical disabilities! ;-)

What wonderful news! She is just beautiful and yes, I'll add her to my prayer list.

I wrote a post a couple of days ago about a friend's child who just had a kidney transplant. Drop by and read it if you have a moment.
