    I am sure what the parents or whoever is reporting is true. They are in the situation and we shouldn't be questioning what they are reporting.

    Well my 2 cents ......we were on the Fantasy in November...FRESH WATER, not sure what chemicals they use.

    As to the child's condition...........I totally agree.

    As to something like the pools and chemical etc.............not so sure..........It could be true or a honest mistake.!

    The important part is the child recovery, which thankfully is slowly progressing.

    Let's not speculate on medical procedures done as none of us are in that hospital room. No need for posts questioning what was done.

    As far as the pools onboard....fresh water from sea water....in simple terms they desalinate the water for the pools.

    We just debarked the Fantasy this morning and we thought of Chase often throughout the cruise. So glad to hear he survived the pool incident and will hopefully make a full recovery.

    You know, I've thought a lot about you all on this cruise. :flower3: Everyone is coming home and it brings tears to my eyes to see the posts from them on his FB page.

    Still praying.

    I've been on the Fantasy in June, Dec & March. They are NOT salt water pools. We have a chlorinated pool and one of the ways you can sanitize your pool is with an ionizer or a salt system. This doesn't turn your pool into a salt water pool tho. It's possible they use a salt system, or the water seems different because of it being desalinated.

    In any case, DCL is correct in advertising fresh water pools.

    Just an FYI - we use ice at my hospital for fevers as well. No cooling blankets. I work with a non-pediatric population, but ice is commonly used.

    I'm definitely not speculating on the medical care. I've read the Care Bridge posts and he seems to be in VERY good and capable hands.

    I think about him often and pray for a full recovery. Kids are fighters. Kids are resilient :) I wish him the best.

    I have nothing but concern for any family who had injury and major situations. My heart breaks for all this family has been going through. Makes us wake up and realize how things could easily happen to any of us.

    What I want to know is what is Disney gonna do about the pools and the lack of parents having their kids follow the rules. ( this does not pretain to this young boy ) I have read a ton of threads on the pools and lack of following the rules, to many in the pool, etc. I wrote Disney on this, as I have read 100's of complaints of how the Donald pool is over-run with kids belly flopping, jumping, etc when we all know the rules , why aren't parents following this? So I wrote Disney just a short note of my concerns. I think if all of you wrote in they would have to make some changes....so I am asking that everyone writes in and voices their concerns over no CM's enforcing anything at the pools. Thanks for ur help in making the pools more pleasant and safer for our families!

    I hate to say this, but unless you are on the ship and provide details I doubt your complaint goes far. Complaints based in Internet 'hearsay' don't carry much weight

    On my cruse I did not see jumping, belly flips etc..,, there wasn't room in the pools for the kids to find enough water for those tricks

    And the howls of outrage when you are told you can't get in the pool anytime you want will be LOUD

    Prayers are desperately needed for little Chase...in the latest post on Caring Bridge, his parents are requesting more prayers as they have received an unsettling prognosis. Please join in prayer for Chase and his family.

    So sad. :( It seemed like a few days ago he was making progress, and now this news - a parent's worst nightmare. My heart really goes out to the family. Simply awful.

    Are there any more details about what exactly happened? I know there are a lot of "rumors" going around, but has anyone heard exactly how he ended up in the pool? How long was he "missing" and who rescued him etc?

    I think as a parent of young kids, it's natural to wonder how something like this happens - you like to think it can't/won't possibly happen to you, but really it could happen to anyone at anytime. :worried:

    The latest post was very grim. By the sound of his previous posts, it sounded as if if he was making good progress. Dad had also mentioned earlier that when he was pulled out of the pool he was blue. Goodness, how long was he under water?

    I just logged on to say the same as the prior posters. Heartbreaking to hear the latest, grim prognosis from their facebook posting.

    I guess no one will ever know. The only approximation you can make is the time between when the last family member saw him and the time he was pulled out. I'm sure it wasn't that long but I guess long enough to do this. So sad. I can't imagine. I have a 6 yo boy myself. Seeing their sweet baby's face on FB is just so heartbreaking.

    I wonder too...facebook just says that the parents came rushing up to the Donald Pool...the father fell to his knees to pray - as he saw strangers giving cpr to his unconscious son - whose body was blue. :(

    I can't even imagine the devastation. I will never ever leave my children near the bath, a pool, anything...

    my young son LOVES to play in any water, and I CAN imagine the temptation to play would be so great, he would just run to it..even if I'd asked to wait with me for a minute while I attended to his sister.

    I don't know that that's what happened of course, but I can completely see that potential.

    Wow of his whole body was blue it was a long time. I don't know how long but it had to be more than a few minutes. :(
