Bed for Sale

We have decided to sale Camerans bed. She has been seizure free for over a year now and is sleeping better than ever at night times. So we have decided to let it go. If there is anyone out there in need please e-mail me at

The bed is a Pediacraft Canopy Bed heres the website where you can view more:

We've had the bed since February of 07 so a little over a year. It zips on all four sides and has padded sides that lift up and down on the 2 long sides. The bed is white and has a pink heart bedskirt that can be removed its attatched by velcro. So if someone has a boy just know it can be removed. It is a twin size I have regualr twin size sheets on the bed. It came with 6 fitted sheets, I'm including just 4 that where never used they are solid white. The bed is on wheels and is easy to move around where needed. I've hung toys for Cami on the inside as you will see in a picture, they come down easy. So if you have hanging toys like her it gives them something to play with. The bed really came in handy when I needed to shower or just clean the house a little I would stick her in the bed and zip the sides and I new she would remain safe if she had a seizure. Cameran had most of her seizures during her sleep and would get up and roam so this bed was a tremendous help.
We are willing to ship the bed but at buyers cost not sure how much it would be but if I had to guess it would be $200-$300.

If you dont know the story behind the bed then I will give a quick update. We had this bed ordered last year for Cameran when she was having her seizures the insurance approved it and we recieved the bed shortly after. Then in early January this year we got a phone call saying they had denied the bed. We have fought and fought with the insurance but they will not budge so we have been stuck with the cost. The company whom we purchased it through gave us a discount. The beds normal cost is $5,341.00 the company gave us a discount under the above circumstances so our cost is &3,741.00
We have it for sale for $3,000.00 OR best offer. The bed is in perfect condition, it still has the tag attatched on the front.

Different views of the bed:

Underneath: I have some bedding stored underneath it, it did not come with the storage basket. The bed just sits up high enough to store stuff underneath.

The wheels:

Here you can see where it zips:

The bedskirt:

The toys that I have attatched, you can see they easily tie around. Toys not included:

In this picture you can see both paddings on each side of the bed. I've left the netting pulled up on both long ends with just the rails pulled up since shes been seizure free. When she had the seizures we kept all sides zipped and padded sides pulled up. We would lay her in the bed on the small ends then zip it up.

Bed Sheets still in packing:

Tag still attatched to the bed:

If you have anymore questions please ask away! Thank you!!!

... is really flying by! I apologize for not posting for a while we have been really busy. We just got back from our first long distance camping trip. Me and Jason celebrated our 10 year anniversary at the beach. We left on the 12th and returned the 20th. We went to Edisto Island in South Carolina, it was BEAUTIFUL. They say its South Carolinas little secret and I'll tell you why that is because there is nothing there. Which was great but when I say nothing I mean there is the campground and there is beach houses surrounded by the beach and the marsh....Weird combo I know! And well thats about it, you had a very small Piggly Wiggly, a gas station and a few mom and pop seafood places to eat oh and they did have a pizza place but it cost us $40 for a medium pizza and some chicken for the kids...OUTRAGEOUS! There was no fast food and no Wal-mart.....accckkkk! Just kidding but still we where expecting a little more. The closest fast food and bigger grocery stores was an hour away in Charleston. And that is no exaggeration you literally drove 1 hour of nothing but bridges and Marsh and roads called Toogoodoo(actual street name) to get to a town.

The Marsh was beautiful it reminded me so much of New Orleans brought back some memories from my childhood of my first trip down there. Lots of plantation homes and those Spanish Moss trees where gorgeous! Our campground was set on the Marsh side which suited me fine because we had the Spanish Moss hanging over us and we had a very private large site. Whereas the sites set right on the beach had no trees and no privacy. Our site said to be 1/2 mile to the beach so not far at all. All sites where booked though and it was a perfect time to be down there the weather was perfect and the shell beach really held up to its name. There where tons and tons of shells and Caleb had a ball looking for them. Actually we didnt even get him near the water the first walk to the beach he was going nuts finding shells. And Cameran that girl ran straight for the water she laughed and giggled at the waves knocking her over. I've got some amazing photos!!!! It might take me awhile to get them all up but I'll put up a few to give you a taste :) I think I took 2,000 pictures while there.
We left on Thursday and drove half way and stayed at a campground in Georgia it was called High Falls it was really nice. Friday morning we got up early and drove the rest of the way to our destination. We took the kids down to the beach but it was high tide so we couldnt get in the waves where to big. SO Saturday we took them down for a little while then took a bike ride to see the island and just hung out around the campground. Sunday...Fathers Day we just relaxed and spent the day with their daddy at the beach, cant get any better than that!
We did the beach every other day it was such a mess getting everyone cleaned up from all the sandy bottoms. So we took 2 different trips down to Charleston. On Monday, the 1st trip we took the kids to the Aquarium in Charleston then drove over to do a tour of the Yorktown Navy boat, that was a really neat experience but it took 3 hours to tour just half that boat and the Submarine(kids loved it). But you can imagine after 3 hours of up and down those small stairs and touring the huge flight deck we where exhausted. So after leaving there we drove downtown Charleston and ate at Bubba Gumps....YUMMY! It was a great day. Tuesday we took another bike ride beside the Marsh and that trail also took you to a small museum that tells you about the island and animals of the beach and marsh. Then we headed back out to the beach for the rest of the evening. Wednesday we went back to Charleston and toured the magnolia Plantations and Gardens and all I can say is that it was breath taking and made for another great day.
Thursday was our relaxing day we spent the day on the beach till sunset swimming and then walked the beach looking for shells we found some beautiful ones! Some rolling right up at our feet straight from the ocean. It was such a wonderful trip, we packed up and left on Friday and the kids did fantastic riding the 9 hour trip. We miss the beach already the kids had such a wonderful time!
