update on my granddaughter
- Because so many people have been asking, I requested an update on my granddaughter Chloe to send to prayer warriors. My daughter Michelle is very thankful for all the prayers; she knows they are the only reason she is holding together so well. Thank you all for your prayers; continued prayers greatly appreciated! ~Barbara----- Forwarded Message ----

Chloe was seen at CHOP ER on Friday for "fruit punch" urine, fevers for unknown causes, and high BP and pulse rates. They did an ultrasound of her kidney which turned out to be totally normal. They ran urine analysis and blood test as well; both of which were also normal (no indications of infection, bacteria, virus, etc). She is supposed to follow up with the nephrologist, the rheumatologist and the diagnostic center this week. Doctors are thinking that this may be auto-immune. She has her determatology appt. tomorrow afternoon where we find out the results of the skin biopsy from the rash on her knee as well as apply the contact allergy patches to test her allergies. The results of the allergy test will be analyzed on Friday morning. Her primary care doctor has written a letter for her to be out of school for the next 2-4 weeks depending on her symptoms.
