HELLO, WORLD!

Meet the new love of our lives, Mr. Hudson Hayes Haxton. Hud decided early yesterday morning that we’re doing life on his time 😆. He gave us a heads up around 4:00 and finally joined us about 18 hours later, weighing 5 lbs 3 oz and measuring 19 in.

He’s six weeks early, but tough as nails 💪. He’ll spend anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks in NICU. Right now, it looks like it could be the former 🙏.

He is an absolute dream, and he’s filled a place in our hearts we never knew existed. Thank you all for the prayers, love, and support as we embark on this amazing journey 👨‍👩‍👦.

“The whole idea of masking seems almost more of a control issue than a health issue to me.” — State Sen. Rob Standridge, (R) Norman

Standridge co-authored the bill prohibiting schools from requiring masks. Four districts have already defied that law. So the question now is, will they be held accountable? Find out at 5 and 5:39 on KOKH FOX 25 News, Oklahoma.

Also, how cute is my niece 😍👇?! Less than 8 weeks before we get to snuggle our Hudson Hayes. I hope everyone has a GREAT weekend. See you back on the tele Monday 🙌

Some healthcare workers not backing down as vaccine mandates increase

“I have such a strong spiritual conviction about not getting the vaccine.”

Not all healthcare professionals are pro COVID-19 vaccine. The organization Oklahomans for Health and Parental Rights tells me they’ve had hundreds of workers reach out to them in recent months concerning vaccine mandates at local health systems.

Vaccine mandates have become a hot topic for debate, especially in the health care world. Many institutions have announced mandates for employees, some of which start as early as august. It's been 27 years since Mike Brumbeloe began his nursing career in Oklahoma. He's unfortunately been out of work...

Good evening, I am not sure who or how to even go about this to be honest. My fiancé is on probation at the moment in Cleveland County, Oklahoma for drug related charges. He is currently on a clean start program that requires one to call every day and see if they are up for a drug test based on a random color called that day. If his color is called he must arrive to the Cleveland County Court Services Office in Norman by 6:00pm that day to provide a urine specimen to ensure he is not using illegal substances. Here is where my current concern arises. Recently he was told he failed a drug test for opiates/morphine. We absolutely did not agree with the results so we asked them to re-test immediately upon hearing this news and we were refused, but told it would be sent to a lab that would break it down. He stated that he did not even see the test sealed in front of him so he did not trust it was not contaminated. They told us there were several cameras and that wouldn’t happen, but we’re refused to review the cameras for that day. So we took it upon ourselves to find an outside, accredited, clinic to obtain a hair follicle in attempt to prove this test provided a false positive. We paid $145.00 of our own money to prove that he is not guilty of recent use of drugs period. That we only take methadone daily And pay $126 weekly to attend a medical clinic to maintain our sobriety and have been doing so since June of 2020. Once we received the hair follicle results it proved that their in-fact WERE NO active drugs in his system other than methadone and he was COMPLETELY NEGATIVE for opiates PERiOd! My concern is that the Court Services Office in Cleveland County (Norman, Oklahoma) is conducting illegal urinalysis by not only NOT allowing clients to watch them seal their specimens before it leaves their line of sight, but they are straight up refusing it. Yesterday November 4, 2020 his color was called again. Because of the recent mishaps that could STILL possibly land him in jail over FALSE RESULTS that were never initialed and sealed upon collection, he asked them to please let him watch him seal this specimen so it would not happen again & he was REFUSED & told there were Several cameras As the collector proceeded to walk behind a CLOSED DOOR WITH AN OPEN SPECIMEN & then he was asked to sign a paper showing he was there. I have obtained documents from the “Department of Health & Human Services Substance Abuse & Mental Services Administration Center for Substance Abuse Prevention” Page 11 Step 3. “To be performed by the collector AFTER THE DONOR HAS WATCHED THE COLLECTOR POUR SPECIMEN FROM THE COLLECTION CONTAINER INTO THE SPECIMEN BOTTLES AND CAP THE BOTTLES. This step instructs the collector to: - Place the label/seals on the primary AND split specimen bottles AS THE DONOR WATCHES,”.........etc. (found on google) NONE OF THOSE LEGALLY REQUIRED STEPS ARE BEING TAKEN!!!!!!!!!!! AND NO ONE IS SAYING ANYTHING ABOUT IT!!!! Peoples LIVES are on the line here!!!!! What they are doing and how they are collecting their clients specimens is not only illegal but just plain wrong. They make it hard enough for recovering addicts to get a decent job, make a new life, or even just try to survive a normal life in society today because they are stereotyped. Now I have proof that the government not only had faulty tests but that they conduct ILLEGAL specimen collections from their clients everyday & expect them to survive it all. We need help. We need a voice. Someone to speak up about this and ask them to provide the films that show that these specimens ARE being conducted legally. I promise you they cannot. And it is not them who suffer!!!!! Oh no! It’s innocent people like my husband who are having their lives wrecked not only by the governments faulty tests and testing procedures, but by the mental And financial stress and exhaustion that comes from all of it too. My husband is facing jail time tomorrow for a test that I can prove, with documents, is falsely positive. I have more than two different facilities On more than one occasion that show he is clean as opposed to the Court Services Tests. PleAse help us or please help direct me to someone who can!? Thank you for your time. Patrick Corbett & Danielle Hamrick Residents of Moore, Oklahoma 405-761-0069
