2 steps forward, 3 steps back.

We just received the dreaded phone call- Faith is back on the vent. Her little lungs were just not strong enough to breathe on her own. Tonight they will be administering the first dose of dexamethasone, a steroid that has many negative side effects including brain damage. Here is a link that describes the why this drug is used and its side effects:

We know that God is bigger than cerebral palsy and/or any other possible side effect from this drug. Please pray that the small dose they give her will be enough- they will try her again on CPAP in the next few days.

I am sorry to hear the news . We pray that they only have to give her a small dose and that that will be sufficient! I pray God will put a hedge of protection around FAITH and heal her..but remember it is in HIS time as much as we want it NOW...HE has it covered! God Bless and love ya guys!
