Entering Back Into the Real World: A Quick Update on Parker


Since Parker’s surgery, on March 2, on his legs, ankles, and feet, it is officially confirmed that Parker is OUR HERO and absolutely stronger than he ever thought he could be.   Tomorrow will be his first outing out of the house and we will be going to the doc to get his casts on.  Once the casts are on, then he can go back to school.  So, he is going to try go back on Friday to take the state writing test; since the deadline is Friday.

He is progressing but definitely has a very long way to go.  Last night was the first night that he didn't call over the “walkie talkie” for help.  Michael had a meeting with his pain management doctor yesterday morning and conference called me in on the phone and we are adjusting Parker’s meds to hopefully help him out.  The struggle has been the shooting pain, some minor bleeding at the pin-sites, numbness, and muscle cramps.  And even though he had a fever yesterday, we think it was more JA related than surgical…so we are incredibly thankful that there hasn't been infection.

We will try to update more this weekend.  For now, we thank everyone for the out-pour of love and we ask that all of you please either sign-up to walk with us on May 2 (it’s free to register) and/or please consider making a donation in honor of Parker and Logan.  Click here to get to the walk page.  Time has slipped away from us and the walk is just over a month away; so we need to get our team together very soon so we can make our shirt order.  We are forever grateful!

Much love,

The Lentini Family

P.S.  There is one more picture below so if you are skirmish and don't want to see a bruised up foot and a pin poking out, don't scroll down .
