I can't thank everyone enough for the prayers and encouragement for sweet Brooklyn. ❤️ Her finger started swelling on Friday night, for no apparent reason, so we took her in to check it out, and she started to run a fever as well. The doctors ran multiple tests and started antibiotics, but it only seemed to get worse, so this morning they decided to do surgery on her to release pressure. She is recovering well, and we are still waiting on lab results. The doctors and nurses have been more than wonderful and I am so grateful for everyone love and support. It is really hard on this mom and dad's heart to see our baby in pain. 😢#BrooklynElise
Though doctors gave Brooklyn antibiotics, her problem only got worse. So, on Sunday, July 23, the adorable toddler got surgery on her finger to release pressure. Thankfully, Brooklyn is “recovering well,” as her family told fans via their blog.
While Brooklyn seems to be doing better following the procedure, Erin and Chad are still awaiting the results of several tests in an attempt to figure out what is wrong with their daughter’s finger. “We know Erin and Chad would appreciate your prayers as they wait on lab results and care for their sweet baby,” the Bates family wrote. “Brooklyn will turn one year old on Aug. 6. Big brother Carson Paine is praying too!”
Chad and Erin took to their joint Instagram account to let their followers know how much they appreciate their support throughout Brooklyn’s health crisis. “We are overwhelmed by your love. Brooklyn is doing much better today,” they captioned a photo of Chad cradling Brooklyn in his arms. “I'm not sure if we will ever know how her finger got infected, but we are so grateful to the doctors and nurses here who have cared for her.”

Thank you all for the sweet and encouraging comments. ❤️ We are overwhelmed by your love. Brooklyn is doing much better today. I'm not sure if we will ever know how her finger got infected, but we are so grateful to the doctors and nurses here who have cared for her. The doctor did surgery to release pressure from her swollen finger and to remove infection, and he said it went really well. We will most likely be in the hospital for a few more days as they wait on antibiotics to do their job. Thankfully they are being very thorough and extra cautious to make sure she is fully recovered. I have a new understanding and compassion for families who have a child in the hospital. I'm not sure why this happened, but I know God has been by our side and He has used many others to encourage us through this time. #BrooklynElise ❤️#daddysgirl
The concerned parents continued, “We will most likely be in the hospital for a few more days as they wait on antibiotics to do their job. Thankfully they are being very thorough and extra cautious to make sure she is fully recovered… [We] know God has been by our side and He has used many others to encourage us through this time.”
