WRC, Diuretics and Uniforms oh my!

I have been quite the slacker on the blog this summer!!
Last Saturday we took Parker to Wild River Country for the first time and he absolutely loved it! I havent been there in over 15 years, so it has changed a lot! We went with Diane, Bj and Mallory to night water, so we went in the evening. The kids couldnt go on the big slides, so the adults took turns going on some rides. There was a kids slide that look just like the big slides. A parent could get in a double tube with their child and go down. I seriously have never seen a bigger smile on Parker's face! He could not get enough! I wish I had my camera, but I didnt want to risk taking it in and it getting ruined or stolen.

When we got home Parker was wiped out! He wanted to lay on the couch with a blanket (I dont think he has done this since he was 2 months old!!) He layed there for an hour and then went to bed. I had to document this because it will probably never happen again! =)

On Sunday, I started noticing that Parker was looking a little puffy around his eyes (remember we stopped his diuretics last week). I thought maybe he was just tired and I would watch him. On Monday, he still looked puffy and his teacher at school even noticed it. So, I called his Cardiologist. Well, he is out of town until next week so the nurse and I decided to restart the diuretics this week and then call him next week to see what he wants to do. No biggie, I just feel bad for Parker because he has to use the bathroom ALL THE TIME!! but we want to keep his heart happy =)

A might just get teary writing about this next event! We went to the Toggery to buy Parker's school uniforms for his new school!! He will be starting K-3 in August. His unform is khaki or navy shorts/pants with a red, white, light blue or navy collared shirt. The smallest shorts they had were a 3. The waist was pretty big but they should work if we just put a tack in the waistband and then we can let it out in the Spring. They only had one shirt in his size, so we ordered those and we also ordered a tiny school sweatshirt! He is just going to be the cutest little school boy!

He was so excited! I just cant believe he is old enough to go to school! I know its not "real" kindergarten but to me its a big deal! I am so glad that his surgeries are behind us and now we can just focus on Parker's future with nothing hanging over our heads! God is so good and his plan is perfect!
