A Christmas Chloe Update

Credit: Liana Moments // JD & Liana Works

'Twas the night before Christmas Eve
And all through the house
The suction machine was stirring
Nothing quiet as a mouse.

The stockings were hung
By the chimney with care
And the Gerlings were happy
Because we all would be here.

Home this year from the hospital
Was our first Christmas wish
And that prayer was answered
So bring on Saint Nick. 

The MRI was bumped
Into the next January season
So for now we keep a close eye
Unless she shows us a reason,

That she'd need that test sooner
Christmas at home is best
And on this the team agrees 
So we're all snuggled in our nest.

The MRI will show us
If there's fluid on her brain
And if a shunt would be the right choice
To help it all drain.

But that's a story for another day
Today we focus on Christmas
We'll deal with what comes next
When the next season hits us. 

So the stockings are hung
By the chimney with care
Three years ago this very day
We were told one stocking would not be there.

But it hangs next to the others
And presents under the tree
Remind us all of the meaning of Christmas
And where our hearts should really be.

So we remember the Christ Child
And why He truly came
To help heal the world
Including the sick, the lost, and the lame.

He brought with Him such kindness
And love to rule the earth
To teach us of grace and forgiveness
To show us what His life was worth.

To go from manger to cross
Born to bring peace, His death for our sins
Heaven bent down on Christmas
And that's where the story begins.

We thank you all for your prayers
And the love in your hearts for us
We wish you a merry Christmas
And a new year filled with love.

We originally made this for the Daddy, but decided it'd
be our family Christmas card as well. 
Enjoy and have a merry Christmas!
