The results from Chase’s follow up blood work came in this morning and they were exactly what we were hoping for – He is fine. He will be fine. We will do some follow up testing in November to continue to monitor our brave baby boy but I know in my heart he will be fine. I am so grateful.
Thank YOU for your kindness, your thoughts and your prayers. They worked and I cannot stop the tears. Thank you from the very bottom of my heart. I felt your love and it touched me more than you can possibly know.
Oh thank goodness! I’ve been thinking about you and your family(which is just so odd since I don’t personally know your family but feel like I do!) since Friday and will continue to send good thoughts your way. The power of good thoughts and prayers is amazing.

Sooo happy!!! Thank God!! I just couldn’t help but tear up to know Chase is as healthy as he is happy!! I can’t imagine being a parent and getting anything other than this good news. I just wish children did not have to suffer like they do, it is unimaginable what these innocent ones have to go through.
Thank you God!!!! So happy to hear this news. I know how anxious you must have been. That little smile brightened up my day. Shine on Chase ??
I am so happy for you and your family. I couldn’t help but tear up in joy. God bless you and your wonderful family.

Excellent news! I need to take a page from your book and keep positivity in mind with a few things I’m struggling with. Thank you for the reminder to trust in the good. So happy baby Chase is doing well.

As someone who is about to try to get pregnant, I will remember that mantra. He/She is fine. He/she will be fine.
I am such a worrier and I really don’t want to let the anxiety take over during my pregnancy. I will try to keep repeating that for when I do get pregnant 🙂
Jennifer Chiddenton says
So glad and relieved you got good news! Your whole little family were in my thoughts and prayers for good news!
Thank you, Jennifer <3
God is Good!!

Came here straight away this morning to see if there was any update. Great news! So happy to hear that. Thanks for including us Julie 🙂
What an adorable little face! Glad he is going to be alright!
Catherine @ A Cup of Catherine says
I am so behind on my reading/commenting, but I just wanted to say I am so happy that Chase’s follow-up blood work came back OK.
I have totally been there. Chase reminds me so much of my son who is also blonde, blue-eyed, and TINY (he’s actually not even on the growth chart and hasn’t been for some time). And also so healthy and full of life/energy!
I worried myself so much about his weight. And then we had what seemed like endless blood tests and procedures (poor little guy spent NYE getting a sigmoidoscopy and endoscopy!) that made me feel like such a failure as a mom and made me doubt everything I’d done as a mom.
So, I just want to say that I understand. I feel like if all of us bloggers knew each other in real life we could be mom friends. So, my advice to you is to hang in there! Keep loving that gorgeous baby of yours, TRY not to worry yourself sick so long as he is developing and seems happy, and reach out if you ever need it. <3 <3
So happy to hear that your beautiful boy will be okay! xx
So glad to hear everything came back ok, Julie!
Julie @ Running in a Skirt says
So glad it’s going to be ok! I missed these posts when they first went live, but just wanted to let you know you guys are in my prayers.
I’m so happy for you! I’ve read your blog on and off for years and I feel like I know you a little too. OH, and your little boy is beyond adorble. That face!!
Carol T. says
great news….God is good. Chase just melts my heart…. Hugs and kisses to you and your family
Ah, I am so happy to hear this! Chase looks so happy and healthy in this photo. I am sure you’re taking wonderful care of him, Julie!
