We had a few comments regarding Brooklyn. Chad and Erin shared an message on their daughter.
She said I can't thank everyone enough for the prayers and encouragement for sweet Brooklyn. ❤️ Her finger started swelling on Friday night, for no apparent reason, so we took her in to check it out, and she started to run a fever as well. The doctors ran multiple tests and started antibiotics, but it only seemed to get worse, so this morning they decided to do surgery on her to release pressure. She is recovering well, and we are still waiting on lab results. The doctors and nurses have been more than wonderful and I am so grateful for everyone love and support. It is really hard on this mom and dad's heart to see our baby in pain. 😢#BrooklynElise
