My brother, Cory, is playing at the Rev Room tonight in downtown Little Rock. This show will kick off his national tour. I would love to see some familiar faces from the blogging world there!!! The show starts around 8:00 but Cory goes on at 9:00.
Check out his website to hear a sample of his music:

Sunday night we had our church picnic. It was so fun, they had rides and games but Parker's favortie part was the slide and the swings.
Most of the time he spent climbing and sliding. He could climb up the entire slide by himself!!
This is my brother, Cory

First off, just look at my sweet Parker this morning before leaving for mother's day out. It is his first day to wear shorts this year and he just looked so cute!

Yesterday I was working and I heard Parker grunting. I looked over and he had climbed up into his chair and was standing in it! I guess I have a climber on my hands!

At our last Cardiology appointment, Dr Seib suggested that we go get Parker's pulse ox (oxygen saturation in the blood) checked about once a week at the pediatrician. He wants us to do this because Parker's oxygen was kind of low and if it remains low, he will do a heart cath at some point (maybe this summer). Well, we went yesterday afternoon and it was 74. At the cardiology appt two weeks ago it was 78 and last week at the pediatrician it was 76. So, it is going down. I talked to Dr. Seib's nurse last night and she siad that his pulse ox will fluctuate and they wont really start getting worried until it stays at 70 or below. He has definitely started looking bluer around his eyes and I can tell he is tired more often. He will be playing and all of the sudden he will just lay flat on the floor and rest for a few minutes and then he will jump back up and play again. I am just glad he knows when he needs to rest and doesnt push himself too hard. So, we will just keep checking his pulse ox and watching him for any signs of heart failure. If I had to guess, I would say he will be having a heart cath sometime this summer. But who knows!

Ok, this post is just going to be long and have a ton of pictures from our Easter weekend....
On Saturday morning, one of my oldest friends, Lauren, invited us to her church to hunt Easter eggs. It was a gorgeous day and it was so fun to see her sweet little boy Spencer.

Parker started feeling much better by Friday afternoon. I guess he just had the fever virus. I found out today that all of the kids his therapist sees were sick last week with a fever!! Guess he got it from one of them or from her. I am just glad he is all better!!

After the walk...Parker was tired.
It was such a beautiful day, it reached like 75 degrees and was sunny. After the walk Dennis and I took Parker to the park.
He loved the swings!
So did Daddy!
trying to walk on the gravel
That was too hard so he just sat down and played with it!
On Sunday night we ate at my parents house and she got Parker a new dump truck for her house!!
Overall our weekend was great! Thanks again to those that donated and walk in support of Parker!!

We went to the pediatrician yesterday. Parker was running a 102 temperature and was just pittiful. This is his first time to be really sick with something (besides open heart surgery). His ears looked fine. They did a strep test, flu test. chest xray, and CBC. Everything was negative and looked fine. She said that it is probably a fever virus that will have to run its coarse. She did send his strep test off to be cultured because he had the symptoms of strep (RED throat, white tongue, yucky breath). So, we will find out this afternoon what that test says. If it is negative then he must have the fever virus. He is just so pittiful and all he has done for the past two days is sleep. This morning he woke up without a fever but by the time we got to the office he had a low fever so he went right to bed. I am so lucky that I can bring him to work with me. I share an office with my mom and we can just close the door so noone comes in and is around the sick baby.
