this year is our 7th year for our PCMC NICU project!!
I need your help with my NICU (Newborn Intensive Care Unit) PCMC (Primary Children's Medical Center) quilt/hat project this year. Many of you know that our precious little Landon born December 15th, 2005 spent his first Christmas in the NICU at PCMC. It was a very hard Christmas for our little family because our sweet baby boy was so sick and couldn't spend Christmas at home with his family. For the past 7 Christmas's our family and cherished friends have enjoyed playing Santa to all the babies in the NICU. I have taken quilts/blankets and knit hats for all the babies who will spend their first Christmas in the NICU just as Landon did so they know they too are loved and that Santa didn't forget them. So here is where you come in...there are60 NICU beds at PCMC and for the past 7 years everyone of them has been occupied on Christmas Eve by a precious newborn. This year with the H1N1 virus , RSV and seasonal flu infections expected to be extremely high, I expect that every bed in the NICU will be full again this Christmas. That is a lot of hats and blankets that need to be made so I need your help!! If you are a quilter, knitter or would like to help in any other way *or know someone who is* your talents are much needed and truly wanted and there is no time like the "present" to get started!!The snow is already falling and it will be Christmas Eve before we know it.... so if you would like to help, please send me a message of how to reach you and our family and the babies in the NICU will be forever grateful... Merry Christmas!!
