the most handsome and incredible gift that came 3 weeks early!!! Parker was born on July 25, 2017.
Shortly after Parker was born Kristy and Derek received news that Parker had some medical issues.
Parker was born with 3 holes in his heart. The hope was that they would mend themselves and surgery would not be required. Because of his heart condition he also has a feeding tube and now cannot feed from a bottle, it takes to much energy for him to be able to do so. After months of observations, appointments and tests, the result is that Parker will need surgery.
Parkers suregry has been scheduled for December 19 at Sick Kids hospital is Toronto. In one sense, a blessing that Parker is going to get the surgery he so desperately needs but also a difficult time right before Christmas. Medical expense are paid but with this comes so many more. Cost of parking, hotel, food, gas and more. Parker will be in the hospital for 5-10 days depending how the surgery goes and his recovery.
This being said Kristy, Derek and Karliegh will not be spending much time at home over the Christmas holidays.
We are reaching out to family and friends for some financial help for them over this time. It's going to be a long road and they have had a long one already. I know how much this means to the family and I can also say that they would do the same in return for anyone they know.
Kristy and Derek have been blessed with Parker but I can't even begin to say how blessed Parker is to have the Mom and Dad that he does. They are the most lovely and greatful people I have ever met.
So please if you can donate today and help them in this time.
Thank you in advance to all that have helped up to this point in all ways and to those that continue to help along the way, either emotionally or financially. Nothing goes unnoticed.
I will update along the way as well to keep everyone informed on his recovery!!
