  1. 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 ventila

  3. Good grief!!! Only in Falls Creek , Pa.🙄. So, I pulled into the gas station just a few minutes ago and when I was walking in to pay, I noticed one of our finest officers parked on the side of the building. He was watching this woman who was smoking while pumping gas. I saw her too ...I was thinking this lady is CRAZY!! But anyway, I went inside and all of a sudden I heard a commotion ...I heard somebody screaming. I looked out the door and the woman's arm was on fire!!! She was swinging her arm & running around like crazy!! I saw the officer who had just put the lady on the ground and was

  4. Yesterday was Faith Marie’s 8th month birthday. She is 13# & 24 1/2” long. She loves most baby foods, loves to “talk”, & knows who is talking to her. She has been learning so much stuff this past month. Her appt in Pitts went well, so well in fact, the Drs said that Faith would live past her 1st birthday. With all the prayers this little girl has in our area, state, and country, God hears them, and He has healed most of the problems she was born with! Thank you Jesus!!

  6. 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. 🙏🏻

  8. Thank you, to everyone who has followed along with Faith Marie’s journey to reach a year old!! The majority of us learned what Trisomy 18 is. We also learned that “Trisomy 18 is a Diagnosis, Not a Prognosis.” We have no idea what the future holds, we will go day by day. Everything is in God’s Hands, His plans & His time. 🙏🏻💜🙏🏻

  9. I was playing with Faith while her mommy did an errand. We were playing with a wiener dog, they go “bark bark”, because that’s what real wiener dogs sound like. The dog would bark, then kiss her cheek, this is the reaction I got, 😂 😍

  11. Today Faith Marie is 1 month old. ❤️ 🙏🏻 ❤️ We are told that her odds of making it to a yr old go up if she made it to a month old. I say she has the same odds as the rest of us. When God calls us home, we go.

  15. Yes she has, isn’t it wonderful!! She is starting to eat baby food now, she loves applesauce!! The rice flakes helped put weight on her also. Brandi said every time a hole closed in her heart, she would go through a growth spurt. The last time it happened was when she grew 2” in 1 month, but they didn’t know the hole closed!! Faith Marie has one more hole, it usually requires surgery to close it. She is hungry a lot, wants held more, sleepy, etc. These are all the same things she did a couple months back when she had that big growth spurt. We are all praying that the last hole closed

  17. My opinion: I think some people are still under the impression that the lockdown was meant to eradicate the virus. It wasn't. It was meant to slow it down to reasonable infection rates that our health care system could handle. Businesses will and must reopen. Staying home forever will not eradicate the virus, not in a mobile society. The most vulnerable populations must still exercise great caution, and the rest of the population, reasonable caution. Yes, more people will contract the virus. Things are not going to be back to pre-virus normal, but just don't be stupid. And be kind. Not everybo

  20. Here is the article that was about Faith and the Daisy Award winner Nikole Kessler. This was when Faith Marie was 3 months old. Yes, I’m late with it. ********************************************************************** We are truly privileged to congratulate our most recent DAISY Foundation winner: Nikole Kessler, RN, of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at PH DuBois. Nikole helped to care for infant Faith Marie Spicher, who was born with Trisomy 18. Many babies born with this chromosomal condition do not live beyond their first few days or weeks of life. Faith, however, grew stron

  24. Minimum wage IS for minimum skills! 1st I'll say I absolutely agree that servers/bartenders wages should be increased to the same minimum wage as everyone else, plus their tips - they work their a*ses off every day - I used to be one & yes, some days the tips are great, but other days they are terrible. 2nd, I have been the single mother of 3 most of my childrens' lives. Minimum wage wasn't cutting it, so what did I do? I got an Associate Degree, then got a CAREER that paid me HIGHER THAN MINIMUM WAGE, plus bonuses, commissions, & benefits because when your paycheck isn't cutting it, t

  25. Not every employee wants a living wage. Many only want to work part time. There should be no minimum wage. If employees do not like what I pay then they should look for a different job

  26. This is NOT why. I personally know this. Its due to the free money handed out and ALL the EXTRA pay in unemployment and other incentives. But keep spinning that tired old horse. Dems love free stuff.

    Biden Press Conference

    Politics aside....Something is wrong with Joe Biden. He's losing his train of thought, rambling about nothing, going off topic, etc. He needs medical assistance. Politically speaking....If you voted for Joe Biden, you're a moron!

    why stop at 16

    Then 16 year olds should be tried as adults if they commit crimes and be responsible for their own support. They should be allowed to sign contracts and work an 8 hour day at any job no matter how hazardous. They should be permitted to enlist and die in the wars that the officials they elect start. If they are old enough at 16 to participate in the running of the country they are old enough to accept all the responsibilities of adulthood. Do we really want children deciding the fate of the country? You cannot be considered an adult for one activity and then claim the protection of childhood st

    Sandy no on consolidation

    I can't think that anyone would not think that State College is thriving. They are building housing everywhere. We bought a place there and it wasn't outrageously expensive. Certainly, if you want a mansion it is going to be pricier than similar housing would be here. There are lots of professional level jobs and just remember that all of those intellectual types who don't know one end of a screwdriver from another need lots of somebodies to service their cars and fix their plumbing. Curiously, people are retiring to State College because of all of the available activities and they are bringin

  37. From all the years i worked at Lezzers. If you are not sure of someone , always get references. Call your local building supply companies and ask them. They do not want to give you a bad recommendation. There is a lot of deadbeat people out there always looking for the easy way to get cash. Also anyone can always PM me and i'll give you my honest opinion. 31 years at Lezzers and 10 years prior to that working in the business and i'm always willing to give my input. Some people may not care for it but it comes from experience.
