A Better Day

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
Ephesians 3:20-21

As Kimberley was home with Daniel, Caroline and TJ last night I (Jason) got to spend the night at the hospital with Liam. It had been a pretty rough day as his body adjusted to the change in medications, but by the evening we were seeing some signs of improvement and some reasons for celebration. The nurse let us know that he was not scheduled for blood work and so there would be no need for any more needles. Today, which started without needles, ended up being a much better day. Liam's body seemed to have adjusted and so he had his appetite back, he was able to get up and go for walks and we even saw some smiles and heard some laughs. Toward the end of the day we received our biggest surprise. His nurse informed us that she had spoken with Dr. Singh his surgeon and Dr. Singh suggested that based on how well Liam is doing, and how well he adjusted today that there is a chance that Liam might be released from the hospital tomorrow. We have learned to take each day at a time, not to get too excited and that we never know what tomorrow may look like, but it would be amazing if he were to be able to come home so soon. We had been praying about having needles and started out today celebrating that he didn't have to have one. We never imagined that we would be considering the possibility of going home. It is so true that God is able to do more than all we ask or imagine!


  1. our Father God has so much in store for us and in ways that we do not see at hand. My prayer is that Liam comes home very soon for he is a testimony of God's grace and in answered prayer.

  2. Dear Liam, Kimberley and Jason,
    SO glad you had a better day yesterday. We love you and continue to pray for God's healing for you. We are excited about the possibility of coming home today...we shall see! My home church is assembling now and we will be praying for you together. Love you much, joy (jim is cooking you something :). TTFN

  3. Our God is an AWESOME amazing the recovery. Two surgeries and home early WOW!
    My love and prayers to you all!

  4. It's hard to imagine that it was only about a week ago that we were diligently praying for a miraculous surgery and now we're already hearing about Liam coming home. I'm praying that God will clearly make his perfect timing evident to the doctors and hospital staff so that Liam's health is the number one priority as they prepare to release him. I'm constantly amazed by the power and care of our Heavenly Father--nothing is too small for Him to care about and nothing is too challenging enough for Him to control. God bless, your friends at the Chase home.
