My Precious Grandson

Just got word from my son. Hayden went to Children's in DC today for his IV dose of IGg. They did blood work and found that he is not making any red or white blood cells. They were told his body could shut down any time. He now has a respiratory disease (Small Airway disease) and calling in a lung specialist for him. Monday he has to go back to Children's Hospital for them to take a sample of bone marrow to test for possible infection in his bone marrow. Please keep Hayden Parsons, and his Mom and Dad (Chris and Trish) in your prayers.

These are recent pictures taken at Chris and Trish's home. The top picture is me with my oldest son, Chris. The other pictures are my youngest son, Matthew, and his girlfriend and myself playing in Hayden's room. I love getting on the floor and playing cars with him! Hayden was having fun pushing the vacuum around the kitchen and living room. He is so full of energy and smiles so much. So hard to look at him and see that he is so sick.

I'm looking for a miracle this Christmas - for Hayden to pull thru all of this so we can watch him grow up to become a fine young man!

Nana loves you so much Hayden!

Hi Beth.. After reading Faith's post today, I headed over as soon as I could.. I am happy to meet any friend of Faith's!... I am, however, sorry to hear about the medical conditions Hayden and his parents are facing right now.. So, I just want to let you know that your dear grandson and all your family will be in my prayers. ~tina

I'm here from Faith's blog too. My heart goes out to you - I'm a new grandma myself and cannot imagine how difficult this must be for all of you right now. Your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Making my way through all those on my bloglog today (from Sandy's Space), and hit Faith's blog just before coming to yours. Am so terribly sorry to learn you're all going through this and will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.

I sent you an email and would be happy to forward something for your Dear Hayden.

Stay strong Beth, and know many folks care.

I'm sorry I didn't know sooner.

Visiting blogspot Bridge and Beyond Team Members today to say Merry Christmas, and to ask everyone to double their efforts with donations, the need is great and growing daily.


**Wanted to stop in to see how things were going, to leave you a ((HUG)), to let you know I'm still thinking about you.

And, to tell you Chris's donation came yesterday. Will try to get photo up either later today or tomorrow. Please let her know. Thanks
