Well, we finally made it up to the oncology unit! It feels so good to be back up here and we are eager to see how Bo improves outside of the PICU.
Unfortunately, as of this morning, Bo is holding onto more fluid from the last 24 hours than he has been since coming off the continuous dialysis machine. It feels like one step forward, one step back. His numbers are slowly continuing to improve (via his blood tests), it’s just confusing why he’s still holding onto so much fluid. There is a chance they could send us back down to the PICU to put him back on the continuous dialysis machine, but we are praying that won’t happen. Will you be praying for Bo’s liver and kidneys to continue to heal and for him to be able to stay in our normal unit?
Another hurdle we are still in the midst of is Bo’s platelet counts. His counts continue to be very low despite receiving regular platelet infusions. With his liver and kidneys still not recovered, they consume a lot of platelets, and we are having a hard time keeping up with his needs. He scratched himself on his face yesterday and because he doesn’t have enough platelets to make it clot, it has continued to bleed for the last 24 hours. We are also still reminded daily that we are in the midst of a nationwide platelet shortage. Please pray with us for Bo’s body to hold onto these precious platelets and for his daily need to continue to be met.
I’m feeling a little discouraged this morning, but trying to keep my eyes fixed on Christ, reminding myself of the deliverance we have experienced already, and hoping for that which is yet to come.
We love you all and are blessed to be on this journey with you. Thank you for your continued prayers ❤️

Dear Cloe we continue to pray for your precious Bo and for you and Lance.
Praying for healing for Bo and encouragement, strength and peace for you Cloe.
Hugs, love and prayers.
May Bo’s liver and kidneys fully recover and function at top performance. May more people step forward to donate blood platelets nationwide. May God stretch out His hand to comfort the afflicted. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ who lives and reigns together with the Holy Spirit one God forever and ever.
Thanks for the update. So glad you got moved upstairs and praying that Bo’s body continues healing so he can get the next stage treatment. Our powerful God has answered so many prayers and we trust Him to continue healing little Bo so you can take him home ASAP. May He give you both strength, peace, and rest.
Dear Chloe and Lance, thank you for keeping us updated on how we can pray for Bo. We appreciate your transparency which helps us when praying for you as well. This marathon is anything but easy and it’s good that you are fixing your thoughts on Jesus because He is our hope, and He is able. We pray for Bo’s complete healing, and for God’s peace and comfort to sustain you.
We are standing with you for Bo’s different needs. We don’t understand why all these things are happening but we do know the One who loves little Bo…..He will not leave you alone. Praying for an extra measure of strength and faith and peace as you wait on The Lord to hear our cries! Praying The Lord will send his angels to minister to Bo and you and Lance. We love you❤️
Aloha Chloe and Lance, sending you prayers from Maui for Bo’s liver and kidney to respond & heal, for platelets to be numerous not only in Bo’s little body but nationwide. Thank you for updating us so we know how to pray. I continue to pray that you and Lance get the rest you need and that you get time to see Naomi. Our God is the amazing healer and I ask that our Lord stretch His healing hand on Bo and Heal Bo??????Hugs and take care.
Romans 8:26-27 (NIV)
26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.
Love you Chloe and I am praying for Bo, for you, Lance and Naomi. As a mom, I know this is a very difficult situation, my heart aches for you and with you … and most often we don’t even know how to pray. God reminded me tonight that the Spirit intercedes for us. I just want to encourage you to lean on the Holy Spirit. When at times you don’t know what to pray and how to pray, He is there interceding for you <3
Continuing to pray for strength for all of you and healing for Bo. Discouragement is human and very understandable but He will continue to be your rock and shield.
