UPDATE: For all those who have supported our effort to raise funds for Nick and Nicole, Thank You! Together we raised $2,000 for them. Today, October 1st, Baby Max is currently having brain surgery at Sick Children's Hospital in Toronto. Please say a prayer for him.
October 2nd: Baby Max came thru surgery. His surgeon said it was the most difficult case he has seen. Good news is he did wake up last night around 9:00 and said 'Mama'! So far today, he has not wakened. It was a very long surgery and he has a long battle yet. So, keep saying those prayers!
October 9th: Max is doing great! Sick Children's Hospital released him this morning to go to Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Center where he will spend 8 - 12 weeks undergoing intense physical and speech therapy.
November 8th: Max decided he was ready to walk again! Once placed on his feet, he took off. This is a huge step in his rehab. Keep up the good work Max.
Our nephew, Nick Deutekom and his beautiful wife Nicole are the parents of 4 busy children. Their youngest son, a baby named Max, has a condition called Sturge Weber Syndrome. This illness far too often, causes seizures which result in unexpected trips from their home in the Peterborough area to Toronto’s Sick Children’s Hospital. To help offset the travel and medical expenses that are an unfortunate part of dealing with a very sick child, Goldenbrook Hostas will be gifting all monies from the sale of the popular Hosta ‘Rainbow’s End’ to the family. Please help up fill the pot o’ gold at the end of this rainbow by ordering yours today! Check out the tab call BABY MAX.
