Parker's home

After exactly 6 months and 2 days, our nephew Parker came home from the hospital. Just to remind you, he was born with a congenital heart defect. His heart function in January took a terrible nose dive, and he consequently suffered a stroke. Shortly thereafter he was put on the transplant list, where he waited for about 4 months. He was on medications that kept him alive, but he was continuously getting worse. On June 10 at 1 am his transplant arrived and he had a literal change of heart. He's been in recovery ever since, with some ups and downs, but is getting stronger every day. On Friday he was released from the hospital. What amazing things we can do now.
