Meemaw & Peepaw Hutsell

We used to be known as Paul & Vickie Hutsell but since the grandchildren came, we are affectionately known as Meemaw and Peepaw Hutsell. Vickie works for Kauffman Engineering (formerly TM Morris Mfg) and Paul works at Matthew Warren and is music minister and executive pastor at our church: Calvary Union Church in neighboring Walton,IN. We love the Lord for His grace to us and we also love all of our little g'babies too as well as their wonderful parents.

Chloe's First Visit to Meemaw's

On Sunday, Chloe brought her parents by for a visit. They seem like really nice people...except for "you know who". He lookled kinda funny. Chloe sure has a lot of training to do with him. Mostly she just laid around and enjoyed her meemaw and peepaw and slept alot. But she sure had a great time.

Chloe Hutsell Update

Chloe is doing fine and is at home with her new parents. Joel has had the duties of working and is jealous of Katie who has been able to show her off.

Both are doing fine in their new roles. They are a great family.
They want to thank all who have been in prayer on their behalf and ask for continued support in prayer.

Tuesday Update

As of Monday evening all oxygen has been taken away and Chloe is responding extremely well.
Katie spent the night to help get Chloe on schedule for feedings. Joel stayed in the hotel to remain nearby.

(The picture came out a bit fuzzy on Saturday.)

They expect to bring Chloe home on Sunday or Monday, but we all praise the Lord that she is recovering very quickly from what could have been a disastrous start.

Chloe Hutsell Update

Wow!! Praise the Lord!!
Thank you to all who prayed so diligently for Chloe, Katie, and Joel.
All the official numbers are in. She was born in Logansport Memorial Hospital on Thursday; August 10th at 9:10pm. She weighed 8lbs 10.6 oz and was 20" long.

Katie was released on Saturday morning from Memorial Hospital in Logansport and was able to make the trip to Lafayette to see and touch her new little girl for the first time.
She is so precious!!

As of Sunday afternoon, all the tubes have been removed except the one in her belly button where she gets her antibiotics. She is now sleeping in a crib with blankets instead of the incubator bed. Her breathing is deeper and slower so she is able to eat normally.
Praise the Lord!!

Katie and Joel have been in Lafayette since they went down on Saturday so pray for them too as they recover along with Chloe.

New Addition to the Hutsell Clan

Well Chloe Marie Hutsell arrived at approximately 9:00 pm est by way of emergency c-section and weighs in at a little over 7 lbs.

There were a few complications, however.

The placenta tore away from the uterine wall so the baby had some lood loss and also inhaled merconium? so has complications like pneumonia.

She was transferred to Home Hospital's neo-natal ICU until she recovers

Mom and dad are doing ok. Katie was still a little out of it when we left the hospital at midnight.

Please pray for them all as they adjust to their new life together amidst the setbacks.
