Stacey - I am so glad to hear Chance had a speedy recovery. This post brought tears to my eyes and joy to my heart.

Stacey Lockhart - I’m overjoyed to hear Chance did great during this surgery. It makes me think back to Beau and his decompression almost 2 years ago. I am amazed and elated to read your blog updates, your story is so near to my heart. We have struggled in many similar situations with our boys, and I couldn’t ask for a better pick me up when my days get rough. Praying your sweet boy heals and he gets a break. You’re incredible Amanda, and Chance and your older children are lucky to have you for a mom.
