From 20 To 2

Faith said her pain level was off the chart a couple days ago...

Now she is a 2.
She even got up and took a short walk around

(she is not fond of the ugly outfit she has to wear)

things were looking up last night......

Faith and I were busy watching movies, making necklaces,coloring,eating chocolate covered edible arrangements,reading and talking about girl stuff...I thought she was getting better!

Around 2am Faith was having some wheezing and oxygen level dropped. She's back on oxygen. Chest xray is showing she has pneumonia now. Her wound looks great went from red and swollen to back and blue like a bruise. Now we are fighting an infection in her lungs.

The doctor asked about Faith missing school. We explained that she is homeschooled and we don't plan to start until the 2nd of Sept. This struck an interesting conversation. She shared her concern about socialism. We talked and I explained some things to her (not that I needed to)

Well this morning the nurses have been busy delivering all kinds of goodies and flowers to Faith's room from friends.
Poor homeschool child has no friends does she? ha!

Faith has to remain in the hospital until she can keep her oxygen levels up on her own. She is a trooper, but wants to go home! She misses her siblings and friends.
Thank you for all your prayers and goodies....we feel so blessed!
I will update when I can on my blog...I do update on facebook if you would like to friend me on there:)
Or you can always check my sisters blog.
Pray we can go home tomorrow!

Kevin and I are praying for Faith! We can only imagine how much she misses her sweet brothers and sisters. What a relief that her pain went from "off the charts" to a "2" in such a short time. Nonetheless, it broke my heart when Krystyn shared the news of Faith's hospitalization. Poor Baby and Poor Momma! Take good care and we pray you'll be home very, very soon! xoxox

Oh so sorry to hear about this. We will add Faith to our prayers for your family. (We have been praying for you all every evening, although since we didn't know your last name we were calling you all the Don't Blink family.)
