The BOYS Room

Although it is not all the way finished, I did finish their beds (except we are waiting for a while to get headboards ) . I want to add stars and circles to their walls yet but am still deciding what to do exactly! Did a really simple curtain with some orange grosgrain. (and yes, their names both start with M Matthew and Michael and although I am asked about a hundred times a week, No they are not twins:) they are just close!)

Prayers for Peighton

I was fortunate to make some very special towels this week for Peighton. Here is her story:

Prayers for Peighton027
Peighton Rose Bonk, daughter of Ben & Jen Bonk, was born August 1, 2009. Soon after arrival, some health problems were noticed. Peighton was transferred to Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids, MI hours after being born. Peighton spent about 5 days there then she was taken by survival flight to Ann Arbor, MI Mott's Children’s Hospital. Many tests, pokes and procedures later, the doctor's finally had some answers. Peighton was diagnosed with a form of Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, Goldenhar syndrome, she has a single right kidney, asplenia and heterotaxy. On August 12th, Peighton underwent her first heart surgery. The first surgery would try to let her grow so she could undergo her next surgery when she was about 6 months old. Peighton was able to go home on September 5, 2009 until her next surgery. On February 2, 2010, Peighton underwent her second heart surgery. The surgeon had planned to do the hemi-fontan. During surgery the surgeon was unable to do the hemi-fontan so he had to do the bi-directional glenn instead. This surgery prepares Peighton for the next surgery which will be the Fontan and should be done when she is over 20lbs. and 3-4 years old.
As of February 13th, Peighton is still in the ICU at Mott's Children Hospital.

They are currently setting up a silent Auction as a Benefit for Peighton. The pink beach towel will be a part of it. It was a pleasure to work with all the people who are doing so much to support Peighton!
