The Battle of the Bills: One Expensive Kid

One of Parker’s sweet friends made this quilt to raffle off on our blog.

All proceeds will go towards Parker’s medical fund.

For each $5.00 donation to Parker’s medical fund your name will be put into the back of one of Parker’s dump trucks, with the winning name to be drawn on October 31!

A GREAT day for a treat, eh?

Donations can be made via the button on the top right hand side of Parker’s blog.

We would love it if you would help to spread the word about this raffle on your blog.

Parker has two procedures scheduled within the next month. One is for new tubes in his ears and some work done on his teeth. Parker’s teeth are damaged due to reflux.

The next procedure will be the second part of his pull-through. This is a biggie and it is anticipated that Parker will be in the hospital for about 7 days. And because PCMC is now requiring that kids with trachs stay in the PICU after a surgery……guess where we will spend the entire time.

Oh yeah. Great goofs will be had by all.

But Parker will come home with a brand new tush. One that works.

All I want for Christmas is a designer heiny for Parker.

Bet Santa doesn’t get that request too often.

  2. Lilys Life is Great! says:

    Okay I can’t pass the chance for this quilt. It is beautiful! You should have my donation, if you’re lucky it will pay for a Band-Ade ;-)

  3. The boys and I will be asking Santa to grant the wish for a new heiny for Parker.

    The quilt is beautiful. Will spread the word.

  4. That’s a nice blanket!

    On another note: I don’t remember if you were willing to play along with my interview challenge on my blog. I don’t remember asking you or if you’d volunteered to be interviewed. So let me ask again : Would you be interested in being interviewed for my blog?

  5. I put the info about your raffle on my blog! Off to click Parker’s medical fund button! :)

  6. What a beautiful quilt! I just adore the colors :) Such a sweet thing to do for a beautiful brave hero that we all LOVE and ADORE!!! I want a new designer heiny for Parky for Christmas too :)

    Love to all,

  7. Are they also gonna do a take down on his ostomy or is that another surgery? Once his heiny is working I’ve got some tips for you….he will likely get the nasty horrid rash…almost all kids who’ve had a pull thru get it eventually. Stock up now on ilex paste and vaseline….it will be your life saver. Email me for more tips post pull thru….or contact THE Kei to get my email.

  8. I just posted about this on my blog – what a beautiful quilt!

  9. Hi, Parker and Tammy!

    Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog! You guess are super duper special to us!

    I did mention the raffel on my blog – hope you get some entrants!!! If I knew of someone with a new baby I would enter, but I do not. Bummer!

    Have a great night!

    Hugs and Love!

  10. Can I play let’s make a deal? I’ll put $25 into his fund if the next 5 people who donate after me can get their name in twice…. once for their donation, and once for each of my five $5 contributions. Come on, folks, two for the price of one!

  11. Just made my donation! That is a beautiful quilt. I’ll post on my blog too.

  12. Kat, that sounds like a wonderful idea. Consider it a deal!

  13. just made my donation. wish i could do more. i will certainly spread he word on my blog.

  15. Krystal says:

    That is so beautiful!! I wish I could donate something but this time of the year things are hard especially with the new baby coming. I did want to give you this though:

    You truly are an inspirational and awesome mom!! Parker is lucky to have you and you are lucky to have him!

  16. I have a few things that I would like to donate to be sold. Please send me an email to let me know if its ok with you.

  17. I can’t even fathom the costs involved. I hope Santa makes your wishes come trye.
