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: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/4593863/
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.
