Before Parker was born all seemed well with the pregnancy and there was no reason to have any concerns. When she arrived, visually we could see there was something wrong with her right arm, although no one had any idea what exactly it was, we all knew it needed attention. Parker was taken to the NICU after quick snuggles with mommy, and shortly after Casey and Bri were informed she needed to be transported by helicopter to Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
After arriving to Phoenix Children’s Hospital they took Parker back for surgery. Although they were able to restore blood flow to her hand and arm there does seem to be some dying muscle. Due to these things, Parker will be in the NICU until they can find more answers and see her arm heading in the right direction. The Drs are confident she is on the right path, but do want to keep a close eye on her.
As as mentioned before this was all an unexpected shock for Casey and Bri. The days to come are full of unknowns, as of now there are very limited answers and explanations. I ask first and foremost that you keep this family in your prayers. Prayer is so very powerful! Please pray for healing and comfort, for Parker, Casey and Bri and of course big sister Oaklie. Also, if you are able or willing to give, the Balland family would be forever grateful! These funds will go towards helping with any medical bills that come up, unexpected expenses, travel expenses and food expenses or whatever Casey and Bri need to make it through the upcoming weeks.
Parker’s story was neat from the beginning, and this is only the first chapter. This strong little girl will have quite the story to tell one day!
