    Meet my granddaughter Faith Marie

    Peanut gained another 2oz this week. She is up to 4# 7oz now. She also pulled her feeding tube out this morning, but she has been taking a bottle that is equal to what she was given through the feeding tube. As long as she continues to take a bottle, she won’t need the feeding tube. 🙏🏻

    Reynoldsville’’s Beichner Named Top ROTC Nursing Student February 2, 2019 12:30 am· Author: exploreJefferson CLARION, Pa. – Clarion University has something neither Princeton nor Harvard has: Aryn Beichner, the number one nursing student in the Army ROTC cadet corps for the northeast United States and the number two nursing student in the entire United States Army ROTC cadet corps. The honor was announced during the Clarion University ROTC Fall Awards Banquet, held Jan. 22. Col. Joseph C. Richey, professor of military science for Clarion University and Slippery Rock University ROTC, made the recognition. The criteria included overall GPA, leadership, physical fitness, performance at various cadet summer trainings, extracurricular activities and the professor of military science’s ratings of overall performance. In the United States, there are more than 20,000 Army ROTC cadets at 274 universities with 1,600 to 1,700 partnered universities and colleges. “It is an outstanding achievement to be named the number one nursing cadet out of 26 contracted nursing cadets in 2nd Brigade and number two out of 230 contracted nursing cadets in United States Army Cadet Command,” said Capt. Hamid Conteh, Clarion University ROTC. “Aryn is a tremendously gifted student with exceptional attitude for military service. Beichner, a senior from Reynoldsville, comes from a family rooted in military service: Her great- great-aunt, Col. Anna Morres (Ret.), was an active duty nurse in the Army and served more than 20 years, as did her grandfather, SSG Joseph Crissman (Ret.). Beichner said both supported her greatly throughout her time in ROTC. Throughout her high school years at Jefferson Tech, where she was part of the protective services program, she considered enlisting. Her interest in the military, specifically ROTC, flourished through the program. The training covered various facets of protective services, including emergency medical management, which further piqued Beichner’s interest in nursing. She began to search for a school that offered both nursing and ROTC, and she found that Clarion University had excellent programs in each area. The fact that it’s 30 minutes from her hometown is icing on the cake. At Clarion, Beichner has continued to excel. She maintains a 4.0 GPA in a demanding academic program and with the responsibilities of ROTC. She has been involved with campus organizations that include Love Your Melons and Relay for life, and she was president of the Leadership and Excellence Club. She has trained as a nurse intern in the emergency department at Fort Gordon, Ga., and she studied culture and language along with completing humanitarian work in Lithuania last summer. “I plan very, very far ahead, and I keep track of everything,” Beichner said. “Every day, every week, I have hour-by-hour plans to make sure I have time for everything.” Juggling multiple responsibilities isn’t new to her. “My mom has a rare spinal disease that put her in and out of the hospital and rehab for long periods of time. When she would be gone, I had a lot of responsibilities to take on,” she said. “Although I got help from family members, I had a lot to handle on my own, as well as helping out with my brother and sister. I learned how to juggle a lot of things at once when I was young.” She doesn’t just handle her multiple responsibilities, she completes them to the best of her ability. Her mantra is “Never settle.” I always look at things as if there is room for improvement and a way to do better. I don’t think I’ve ever settled for good enough or average,” Beicher said. “I don’t think I’ll ever just be content about where I’m at in life because there is always a way to go up from where you are.” She will commission as a second lieutenant and Distinguished Military Graduate in the Army National Guard Medical Services Corps May 3, and she will graduate with her Bachelor of Science in Nursing May 4. She has already accepted a position as a registered nurse in the emergency department of Penn Highlands DuBois. She will begin in July. Her obligation to the military is to remain in the National Guard for six years after completing ROTC. Beichner has been assigned to the medical services branch. Her goal is to move into nursing within the National Guard. She plans to advance her nursing education, too. “I want to work at least a year getting comfortable with my emergency room nursing duties,” Beichner said. “Then, I would like to start training to become a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner, a program that Penn Highlands offers through Penn State.” After those plans are realized, she will enroll in Clarion’s Master of Science in Nursing program, which will prepare her to be a nurse practitioner. She wants to focus on emergency medicine or open her own practice. http://www.explorejeffersonpa.com/clarions-beichner-named-top-rotc-nursing-student/

    Artist designs wine tumblers inspired by woman banned from Texas Walmart by MATTHEW WATKINS | KVII Staff Friday, February 1st 2019 Cropped Photo: MGN Photo AMARILLO, Texas (KVII) - After a woman was banned from Walmart in Texas earlier this month after drinking wine from a Pringles can while driving around on an electric shopping cart, an Etsy store owner has found inspiration. The Cup Artist on Etsy has created a wine tumbler in the design of a Pringles can. The Cup Artist posted on the product's page, "Now you can be like the Lady banned from Walmart on [sic] electric scooter." The tumblers can hold 20 oz. and are customized with the Pringles logo and custom nutrition label. No changes can be made to the design interpretation. The description also states that the tumblers are "Great for your friends or moms that endure long trips in Walmart and need to drink wine from a Pringles can." The tumblers are also custom coated, and UV printed. Designs are not painted or glued on, meaning that they will not have a peeling decal or be lumpy. The sellers said the slim shape is great for ladies’ hands and the tumblers also feature double wall vacuum seal technology. The tumblers are sold for $29.99.

    Hey Grandpa, What's For Supper?

    I know! Old time comfort food, I love it! Tonight I took a couple of big portabella caps and roasted them w/garlic, onion, sweet peppers and topped with Mozzarella cheese. With a couple of links of sweet Italian sausage and zoodles.

    Meet my granddaughter Faith Marie

    As told by her mother Brandi... So many of you have been wondering how Faith is doing. Thank you all for your thoughts prayers and support through this journey. Faith had a rough start since being brought into this world and been through more than most adults. She was born full term via c section due to being breech. Her head was under my ribs and she wouldn’t turn. When she came out she did pretty well Tuesday then on Wednesday she started having episodes of apnea. Her brain wasn’t sending signals to her lungs to breathe. She was put on a cpap then by Thursday she was placed on a ventilator. Friday we were told that she has trisomy 18, Edwards Syndrome which is a rare chromosomal defect. There is no cure, no fix, it just is. These babies have short life spans. They are lucky if they live past the first 6-9days of life. By Saturday the ventilator was doing all the breathing for her and Deryk and I had to make a heart breaking decision. That’s not a life living on a vent for the rest of her days. But our little girl wasn’t done fighting yet, she was not done living! The vent was discontinued, she opened her eyes and breathed! She was placed on monitors to track her oxygen, heart rate and respiration’s. We waited another week to see how she would do. No more episodes of apnea! We went through a week of education and learning how to care for once she came home. Our hope was restored! She would come home! Our Faith is now 2 weeks old and defying the odds! Our Faith is a true testimony that there is power in prayer! ❤️ I also have to say that the staff at Penn Highlands DuBois NICU and maternity are amazing people! We couldn’t have gotten this far without them! They went above and beyond their call of duty and made whatever accommodations for Faith, us and our family. They have been a God send for us and we are forever grateful to them. 💝

    Trouble in Punxsy!!

    Prayers for my friend Phil, from Punxsutawney. Word is people are waiting outside his house already, many trying not to let him return once he steps out at sunrise. I don't like where our country is headed - so divided between the Love Winter and the Hate Winter crowds. Can't we all get along? #GHD 2626

    HEAR YE HEAR YE !! EARLY SPRING

    Punxsutawney Phil Predicts an Early Spring February 2, 2019 7:44 am· Author: Aly Delp PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. (EYT) – Punxsutawney Phil greeted festival-goers with some good news on Saturday morning when the world’s most famous groundhog predicted an early Spring after not seeing his shadow. Members of the “Inner Circle” announced the furry rodent’s official “forecast” around 7:30 a.m. Saturday at Gobbler’s Knob. Groundhog Day, celebrated annually on February 2, is based on a legend that traverses centuries. Its origins clouded in the mists of time with ethnic cultures and animals awakening on specific dates. Myths such as this tie our present to the distant past when nature did, indeed, influence our lives. Tradition in Germany was to look to the hedgehog on Candlemas Day, February 2, to judge by its behavior the coming weather. German settlers to Pennsylvania brought this belief with them, but found no hedgehogs here. They did, however, find an abundance of groundhogs, and a new tradition was born. The first official Groundhog Day was celebrated in Punxsutawney, PA, in 1887. It was that day that the Groundhog first came out of his hole after a long winter sleep to look for his shadow. According to tradition, if he sees his shadow, he regards it as an omen of six more weeks of bad weather and returns to his hole. However, if the day is cloudy and, hence, shadowless, he takes it as a sign of spring and stays above ground. The groundhog tradition stems from the German tradition and other similar beliefs associated with Candlemas Day and the days of early Christians in Europe, and for centuries the custom was to have the clergy bless candles and distribute them to the people. Even then, it marked a milestone in the winter and the weather that day was important. SEE VIDEO TWEET ; http://www.explorejeffersonpa.com/punxsutawney-phil-predicts-an-early-spring-2/

    NASCAR's 2019 Hall Of Fame Class

    I was never a race fan, while hubby and son were huge Earnhardt fans. Soooo, this young kid comes along and I decided to be his fan. My doc was Dan Gordon and we talked about Jeff Gordon all the time. He was a big race and anything to do with cars fan. He told me that he and his wife decided to be fans of Jeff Gordon's too. Now, no one in the family even pays attention to racing anymore. It just isn't the same without Earnhardt, Gordon and so many others. The same thing is happening in the NFL. Why do so many in "high" places ruin what was so successful? I'll never understand it...
