Brooklyn Update

 Chad Paine and Brooklyn Paine

On Monday morning, we announced that Brooklyn Paine had had surgery on Sunday to release pressure and remove infection from her swollen finger.

Erin and Chad Paine say that Brooklyn is doing much better, although she is still in the hospital and will most likely remain there for the next few days as the antibiotics continue to work. The Paines say they are grateful for the staff at East Tennessee Children's Hospital and the many prayers that have been lifted up for their daughter. They still do not know how the infection started.

Clean or Messy?

"I think if Bates is the last name, it doesn't qualify for tidy."
-Gil Bates

Here's some entertainment for your Tuesday afternoon. The Bates discuss which family members they think are the tidiest and the messiest. Some of them humbly nominate themselves, while some graciously give the titles to others.
