A little catching up to do

Parker has been home for over a week and it has been heavenly!! He is a different kid and after this past weekend, we are different parents! Dennis and I were able to go to the lake for a night without Parker and just relax. And that is exactly what we did!! We fished off the dock, got some sun, rode around in the boat, got a little more sun and laid around. We havent really had a chance to sit and talk very much lately and if we have, it has only been about hospital stuff or heart related things. I love my sweet husband!

Today was a big day....Pareker got to go back to school for a few hours this morning. He was beyond excited!! I told him when he got up and he would NOT eat breakfast and could not get dressed fast enough.
He was a little shy when we got there and would not let go of my leg! This is sooo not him. I think he is still adjusting to everything.
When we got home, he took a very long nap. He was worn out after playing with all of his friends. His teacher said he did so good. She was surprised at how little he whined! He really is a different kid since his surgery. WAAAYYY less whiny. I think he just feels better and isnt as tired.
This afternoon we played golf for a very long time! I hope he can get into this sport...it is a sport I can actually see him being able to tolerate (endurance wise).
Daddy got in on the action too! The club was a little small!
He has lost quite a bit of weight (but he is gaining it back, slowly) since his surgery. I didnt really notice until we got home and all of his clothes are falling off of him!! I tried to capture his saggy pants in the above picture. He is so funny, walking around pulling his pants up all the time. I cant put a belt on him because then he wouldnt be able to go potty a million times a day (those diuretics are tiring!). Things are going great! He will go to school a couple of morning this week and then maybe go a little longer next week. I still cant believe how fast he is back to normal. He does still have some soreness but nothing too bad. He loves to lift his shirt up and say "my booboo looks better!!" in this high pitched voice. I guess thats what I sound like =) so funny!
