Thank you for checking in on our beautiful Brigitte's progress as she battles a Pseudomonas infection of the lungs and Endocarditis. She was admitted to ICU at Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga, TN on October 24, 2016 and we expect her to be hospitalized for several months. This will be a long and arduous journey to recovery but Brigitte has both youth in her favor and the indomitable will of a warrior. The name "Brigitte" means strong heart and, as her mother, I can testify to her ferocity—there is no quit in this girl.
Our family is so deeply moved and strengthened by the incredible outpouring of love, prayer and support. You have bolstered her commitment to healing and we feel blessed to be here beside her in the fight!
