Just a little surgery update

We just got a call from Stanford saying that Parker's surgery is scheduled for 1:00 tomorrow. We have to be there at 11:30, and he can't have anything to eat or drink (besides jello, water, and gatorade) after midnight tonight. Poor little guy is going to be starving. :(

Please be thinking and praying about him during this time, and we'll let you know how it goes!

Today he had his pre op appointment with a nurse, and he was not having it. I think he is scarred by hospitals/doctors offices, since he has been in them way too many times, because he cried when they weighed him, took his temperature, checked his ears, listened to his chest, took his blood pressure...
Poor thing! His nurse asked if he wanted to go buh bye and go get a sticker, and he said "okay" in the sweetest little voice. Then she was his best bud. He gave her smiles and a high five :)

Oh, and he weighed 31 lbs. at his last check up about a month ago, and today he only weighed 28 lbs. I think since we took him off the bottle and he refuses to drink milk out of anything else, he is losing a little bit of weight. Good thing he started eating cheese like a mad man, so hopefully that will give him the extra fat he needs.
I guess we need to send him to Grandma DeDe's to plump him up :)

He had SO much fun today swimming. We had the pool all to ourselves, and I layed out and tried to get rid of my ghostly whiteness while the boys went in the pool.
Here are my guys having fun:

I need a new post/update. This one makes me teary-eyed everytime I read it! However, Parks smiling/playing with Daddy is precious! I am sooooooooooooo with all three of you in love and prayers. I still say a shot of chicken noodle soup broth would be yumyum to the tumtum. Please call and keep me posted tomorrow. Are you coming up home tomorrow night?
