Farewell to Faith

Faith at age 3 as a beautiful angel & flower girl

God’s Garden

God looked around His garden
And He found an empty place
He then looked down upon the earth
And saw your precious face

He put His arms around you
And lifted you to rest;
God’ s Garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best.

He knew that you were suffering
He knew you were in pain
He knew you’ d never ever
Get well on earth again.

So He closed your weary eyelids
And whispered ” Peace be thine ”
Then He took you up to Heaven
With Hands so gentle and kind.

It broke our hearts to lose you
But you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you
The day God welcomed you home.

A Journey’s End

8 years ago I was elated to share this news with our friends and family:

Please join my family in welcoming Faith Teresa Moor to the world. She was born on November 2, 2003 at 11:14am and weighed 8lb 4oz and is 20 inches long. Continue reading


Faith is currently critically stable.  She is super critical but for the moment stable.

What started out as a better day than the one before ended at 4:59 when they were preparing to suction her ET tube and she went into cardiac arrest.  They were all there ready to respond and although they did chest compressions for 5 minutes they believe her circulation and oxygenation.  Her followup blood work shows she “tolerated the cardiac arrest well” even what seems like a statement of madness gives us some hope.

No we nor they know the cause of these arrests. For the moment we live minute to minute, then hour to hour and God willing day-to-day.  Only time will tell.  I’m starting to worry that my little girl is losing her fight.

Sue and I are considering relocating the family closer for the next few days.  We will both not be home, the kids don’t want to be so far away. I cannot make another 100MPH dash back into the city in case of another event.  We will try to make a plan if clearer rested heads prevail in the morning.

DAY 41

At 5:01 PM today Faith experienced another cardiac arrest. They were able to resuscitate her after 5-6 minutes. She is currently critically stable.
This is not a good sign for her overall prognosis. Only the upcoming hours and God willing days
Will determine that.
Please do not call or text for details. I will update the blog as I can.
