Chance’s story  ( entry by Charity Moody — 10 hours ago

On Wednesday, June 13 Chance was out cleaning pools with his stepdad. He had been out most of the day and wasn’t staying  hydrated. Chance began to act delirious, and soon after started having seizures and went unconscious. He was rushed to the ER where he was put into a medically induced coma.   Soon after he was admitted he started having complications with his kidneys, liver,  and having bleeding issues. He was in DIC, and  his  organs started shutting down. He was also having trouble regulating his body temperature which kept dropping dangerously low. He was put on 24 hour dialysis for his, as well as a machine to help regulate his body temperature.   We received news the other day  that there was extensive damage to the brain including the part of the brain that  regulates body temperature. The doctors frankly told us that their suggestion was for comfort. We are not ready to give up on Chance yet. We believe God is going to touch his body and heal him. We know that we serve the ultimate healer, and we don’t have to trust man’s report we believe the report of the Lord!  We quickly decided to get a second opinion, and started working with connections to get Chance transferred to UT Southwestern which specializes in strokes, and situations just like Chance’s. God open the doors, and he was successfully transferred there on Friday evening. The doctors quickly got updated on his case, and are doing everything they can to help him. We know God orchestrated all of the events that led up to him being transferred, and we know he is in the best hands possible. We ask you to join with us and pray for complete healing and restoration for Chance. We thank each and every one of you for your continued prayers, support, and love! We want to say an extra special thank you to uncle Kat for being here day in and day out helping us understand all the medical part of this.  Please follow the story here so we can keep all the information in one place, and avoid any confusion.Welcome to our CaringBridge website.
