    The drs gave her 1/2 a bag of fluids before her chemo treatment. She still didn’t want to eat much the next morning. Of course she wouldn’t drink her bottle at all.
    They called the dr & she said if no luck by 8pm, they must bring her over. Try force feeding if needed by syringe.
    Well, Brandi started with formula. Faith didn’t like it, but she took everything they put in the back of her throat. If it touches her tongue, she gags & spits it out. Part of that has to do with chemo and she has sensory issues with food & liquids. They got enough in her between yesterday that the dr said she didn’t need to come over to CHP last night!! 🤩🥳😍🥰🤗
    They are coming home today!! Thank you for all your Prayers for Baby Faith!!

    Well folks we did well through our first night home.
    She had an average of 98% oxygen level.
    No problems 
    Ate good before bed, .....no bottles though....so we are putting water in her food for now till we figure out how to get her drinking. 
    She woke up happy and smiling and kicking her legs in bed. 
    Today the home nurse is coming to watch us give her first dose of medicine at home. She is in an antibiotic that’s given through her port. She’ll be on this until the 19th. 
    This Friday she is to still do her MRI to check on the size of the tumor and receive her one chemo. It’s the easy chemo not the double dose. 
    We will be discussing a plan of action with Dr. Meade to possibly help prevent this from happening again. She may need iv fluids for a couple days after receiving her chemo treatments.
    If Dr. Meade doesn’t think that she needs to get fluids after her chemo treatments then We are also considering staying down there in a hotel for a couple days after she gets the double chemo treatments so we can take her over to the ED for fluids if she gets lethargic and doesn’t want to eat or drink. 
    We are hoping this doesn’t happen again but we are also trying to prepare a plan if it does as well as preparing a plan to help prevent this from happening again.

    Faith received two different kinds of chemo yesterday. This happens every third treatment. When she has these two chemos together it really knocks the snuff out of her (VinCristine and Dactinomycin). She slept last night and most of today only to wake up enough to eat a bottle or some puréed pears ( her fav food when she’s not feeling well) then back to sleep again. 
    She’s finally perking up now and wanted to sing to you all! ❤️🥰😞 (Sorry I can’t post her video)

    Dr. Meade feels that Faith will only need 18 weeks of chemo!
    She also said that it is extremely rare that the chemo will shrink the tumor to the point that surgery will not be needed........
    But we know Faith, and we know how she defies the odds and Proves there is Power in Prayer! Our Faith can move mountains! So prayer warriors, pray! Pray that God uses his power through her chemo to smite this tumor!

    Continued prayers Bon.  Let  Brandy and her hubby know we are with them in spirit.  My granddaughter talks to me about them quite often.  She worries about all of the challenges they and Faith have and are continuing to face.

    Petee, We may not agree on things all the time.  However,  I want you to know that I appreciate you and how you handle yourself when things are being discussed.  You're always very respectful.

    This entire paragraph raises many questions for me.
    If residents/patients who were positive prior to admission by directives of the government, are those the only people dying in these facilities from the virus?  If not, how did it spread from locked down units to the general population?
    Why didn't the nursing personnel and other staff have sufficient PPE?  What do they use during cold and flu season to keep residents from becoming infected?  For profit businesses who fail in their jobs to protect their clients isn't doing their job. Shouldn't the management and ownership of these facilities know enough to stock PPE items and equipment, in adequate amounts to meet any need?
    Why is it suddenly the job of government to cover for a business that didn't do the job it is expected to do?
    I could go on, but why bother?  Those who expect someone else to be responsible for their safety will never understand.

    When this first happened at Brighton in Beaver the state sent a new temporary management crew in and they still screwed up. They were forced to send the National Guard. That's right the National Guard to a nursing home. Family who wanted to rescue family werent allowed.

    I don't get the wearing of the mask in your own vehicle either. I see it all the time. A person alone in their own vehicle driving with it on. I think some people just really like the things.

    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 everybody is in the same situation. I need to do what is reasonable for me and you need to do what is reasonable for you.

    I know a good eye doctor.  Because you haven't noticed one political party claim a member of the other did not act fast enough to stop the spread?  You haven't noticed any talk about timing of ventilators & PPE?  You haven't heard one side shouting that by totally opening up their state the numbers have gone down?  You haven't heard that if you open up too quickly, the numbers go up?
