Prayers for Parker, one of our own!

by Monarch Women's Wellness on May 22, 2012 · 8 comments

Here at Monarch Women’s Wellness we have the opportunity of delivering life (almost daily), saving lives and relieving pain…  Though sometimes even as surgeons we are brought to a place where even in our advanced level of skill we can’t do anything more.

We are used to being able to do something… being able to help make a miracle happen.  But this weekend it’s hit one of our own.

We are all Mothers here at Monarch, we know what it’s like to hear our baby cry for the first time.  We know what it’s like to love your child so much it’s as if he or she carries your heart wherever they go.  And tonight as we type this we find ourselves in only one place…

The place where we go when we know it’s not up to us to save a life.. it’s not up to us to shoulder the pain (though we wish we could), we get down on our knees.

So we ask you to all join us, whatever your faith may be, as we hope and pray for Tessa and Ryan Fly and their 12 year old son,  Parker Fly.   Tessa, our billing manager, has been with us for over 10 years… to us she is family.  Her son Parker is fighting for his life at Georgetown University Hospital waiting on a much needed liver transplant.

We are sharing Parker’s story and asking for prayers for this sweet family.  You can follow updates on Parker Fly and make a donation  at Prayers for Parker on Facebook.

You can also help support the family by attending any one of the many local events scheduled. All events are listed on the Prayers for Parker Facebook page.

Thank you for your support and prayers!

I would like to commend the entire staff of Monarch Women’s Wellness. You all are an extraordinary group of professionals to include being exceptional individuals. Tessa and her family have been blessed simply by association with you. My heart, prayers, and thoughts are with the Fly family during this difficult time. Not a minute of the day goes by that I am not thinking about or praying for them. It’s amazing how many people have come together in so many ways for the good of one child. I pray for complete healing for Parker and his family. I also pray for continued success of Monarch Women’s Wellness. I am proud to be a long time patient of the Monarch group!
God Bless Each and Every One of You!

Hang in there. There are many people out there praying for you. It takes some strength, but we know you can do it. You have your family and friends to support you.

Reading this brings tears to my eyes. I pray that Parker’s transplant goes well and that he has a great recovery! I can’t imagine what he and his family are going through. All we can do is lift him up in prayer and let the big man upstairs do the rest!!
