Jaymes Interview on WRAL FM Duke Radiothon Today

Today WRAL FM held a radiothon for Duke University Medical Center. Part of the radiothon was to discuss stories about the hospital. Linda Loveland announced that they would play a pretaped interview from Jaymes giving her account of Parker's surgery and her praise for Duke.

Here's a recap from Clayscience21 at the CB:

Jaymes' account:

At 4 weeks, Parker started becoming very, very ill, culminating in vomiting. It became clear to them he wasn't getting nourishment. Doctor told them to go to Durham regional where they spent 8 hours in the emergency room with Parker. Durham suggest Duke Children's since Durham did not have pediatric ward. Jaymes mentioned that Clay was aware of Duke's reputation as a local resident but Jaymes was also aware of Duke even growing up elsewhere since it has a national reputation. The condition was diagnosed as pyloric stenosis, common in children. It's a muscle at the bottom of the baby's stomach that overgrows and obstructs the passage of food to the intestines. Doctors said surgery was urgent and needed to occur within 24 hours. It was terrifying for Jaymes and Clay. The thought of Parker under anesthesia was scary. Parker was in the hospital for 4 days and 4 nights. It was shocking to be in that situation. But doctors and nurses at Duke were calming and comforting. Parker was doing great now and just celebrated his six months birthday. The surgery was an instant fix with a fast recovery and with Parker able to take a bottle right away. He's very happy and healthy now.

Lynda followed up the taped interview with her comments about being in contact with Clay and Jaymes about this and that Parker was the cutest, happiest little kid.

The male DJ suggested that Claymates listening could donate online if they were interested.

Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS - Broadway Bears XII

Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS

Sunday, February 15th, 2009
B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
237 W42nd Street

Broadway Bears is an auction featuring a cuddly chorus line of one-of-a-kind teddy bears, each meticulously outfitted in original, handmade costumes by Broadway’s leading costume designers and representing memorable characters from plays and musicals, past and present.

The skill and imagination devoted to the creation of these coveted collectibles has been recognized worldwide, from The Museum of The City of New York – where 10 bear alumni reside as part of the permanent costume collection – to media acclaim as far away as England and Japan. In addition, noted designers such as Bob Mackie have created original bears for these auctions.

BC/EFA is very grateful to the creative and talented artists who designed, outfitted, costumed, draped, frocked, dressed, shod, hatted, painted, armored, tattooed, stuffed, “lipoed,” wigged, bejeweled and feathered the Broadway Bears – and in doing so created truly one-of-a-kind, museum-quality pieces for auction. BC/EFA is also indebted to The North American Bear Company for generously donating now hundreds of bears – each of which went out a bare bear and came back a star!

The grand total for the evening was a whopping $100,000, a great success for any night of auctioning. It was reported that about $15,000 will be donated to the Peter Blum YMCA in Boca Raton.
