Parker was born on February 8th 2013 with a diaphragmatic hernia. Which means Parkers diaphragm didn't form completely in the womb between 6-12 weeks leaving a hole in the diaphram, which left room for Parker's intestines and spleen to force their way into his left lung cavity. This was overlooked or not recognized on the 20 week prenatal ultrasound. At delivery Parker was having breathing problems, he was transferred within a few hours to the NICU at Children's Hospital in Birmingham. My husband (Jeff) and myself are so blessed to have got a room at the Ronald McDonald House at a discounted rate while Parker is in the hospital so that we can be right here for him while he recovers. Doctors are saying that we are looking to stay around 4 weeks. As some of you know, Jeff and I have 3 girls that are staying with family members during this dificult time so that we can be by Parker's side as much as possible. We will be making trips back and forth from Blountsville to Birmingham to see our beautiful 3 girls whom we have been missing so much. As we all know hospital stays and the commuting can get very pricey and add up real quick. However, if you would like to help in any way, food gift cards and gas gift cards are always nice since those expenses add up very quickly. You can also donate through this page. I was asked by a friend to create this page so that herself and some others could send money to help with these expenses while Parker recovers in the NICU.
