Woman in a coma with brain cancer gives birth to 24-week-old baby

From Fox News: A 37-year-old woman who has been in a coma since July, gave birth to a baby girl via emergency cesarean section on Wednesday, at just 24 weeks gestation. The baby, named Life Lynn, is the youngest of Carrie Deklyen’s six children, and weighs 1 lbs., 4 ounces.
Dekylen, of Wyoming, Michigan, discovered she was pregnant in April, just two weeks after being diagnosed with glioblastoma. She underwent two surgeries to remove the tumor and, along with her husband, Nick, chose to forego a clinical trial in order to protect the baby.
 “I asked her what she wanted to do. She said, ‘We are keeping it,’” Nick told ABC News on Aug. 15. “That was always my choice too, but I wanted her to decide because it was her life we were talking about.”
The family started the “Cure 4 Carrie” Facebook page and a GoFundMe page to keep supporters updated on Dekylen and Life. A September 2 post indicated that Dekylen, who has been on life support at University of Michigan in Ann Arbor since suffering a stroke five weeks ago, is completely unresponsive.
“I just spoke with Nick and he wanted me to update,” Sonya Nelson, Deklyen’s sister-in-law, posted on the Facebook page. “We have tried to share Carrie’s story without being negative, but the bottom line is we need to share the reality of the situation. Carrie is not doing well. For the past few days she has been completely unresponsive, she is not even responding to pain.”
Nelson said that Life was measuring in the 3 percentile for her gestational age at the time, and that the family was asking for prayers. On Thursday, Nelson said that doctors were pleased with Life’s status.
Previous posts had stated that Dekylen’s tumor was showing rapid growth, and doctors were forced to drain fluid from her brain several times. Doctors had hoped to delay delivery until 28 weeks gestation, but a decline in both Life and Dekylen’s health had forced them to act earlier. A post on July 30 said doctors had planned to turn off life support once the baby had been delivered.
In addition to Life, the couple’s children range in ages from 18 to 2, and Nick said that while the older ones understand the circumstances, the younger ones are relatively unaware.
“The older ones obviously understand everything so it is very hard on them,” he told ABC News. “They love their mother and know what they are losing. We talk about good times and laugh and then sometimes we just cry because we just so much. The younger two do not really understand what is happening.”
He said Nelson has been helping to watch the children, and that “we tell them that Mommy is really sick.”

Colleges now offering safe spaces for students to take naps

From Fox News: Over the past two years, universities have embraced nap pods and nap rooms to address what California State University calls “the sleep crisis on college campuses.” Predictably, they’re being branded as “a safe place to sleep.”
The nap areas are the stuff of preschool dreams.

In September, CSU-Fullerton brought a special nap trailer to campus, where students could take a 40-minute snooze in personalized compartments. Last semester, the same campus hosted a “Sleep Eazzy” event, designating a special nap area on campus.
Similarly, students can take a 45-minute nap throughout the day at CSU Northridge’s Oasis Wellness Center. The campus purchased six nap pods, which cost about $9,000 each and are outfitted with soft music and “subtle vibrations on the back.”
The University of Michigan took a lower-tech approach a few years ago, installing six vinyl cots in the undergraduate library. To make room for the nap spaces, the university removed a bunch of study tables.
From Indiana University’s web site:
“For those students too weary-eyed to go on, Indiana University is proud to announce the launch of innovative new nap pods on the Bloomington and IUPUI campuses. The nap pods, created by renowned sleepologists at the Daydream Institute in Sleepy Hollow, New York, come in a soothing Dunn Meadow or Taylor Courtyard green.
Located in popular spots like the Herman B Wells Library and the Campus Center, each nap pod comes equipped with an aromatherapy unit that emits a unique, relaxing scent for each campus: “Lavender Squirrel” for Bloomington and “Minty Jaguar” for IUPUI. An iPad with soothing music is also in each nap pod, as is a comfy chair and IU fleece blanket.
In addition, at select times, nap pods will offer cats for additional snuggle support, who can be called to the pod at the push of a button.
The nap pods are just one more way IU is fulfilling its promise to ensuring student success.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t nap sitting up in a chair. They should have provided one of these:

Also from Charlotte regarding Agenda 21:
We are starting a project in Maine, a bumper sticker project, which will tell it like it is:  regionalism is communism, and we will have a small hammer and sickle after regionalism.  We hope other states will follow.  They can use other words if they wish, but always the word communism and the hammer and sickle.  I.E.,  Land use regulations are communism; sustainable development is communism; regionalism is communism;  reinventing government is communism; restructuring is communism; perestroika is communism.
