Not Much Happening Lately

I know that I have been neglecting the website when my sister tells me that she is waiting for another article. With that, I have made sure to take some time now to update everyone with what has been going on.

To be honest, not too much has happened in the past couple of weeks. Yes, we did have the high dosage of immunogamma globulins and the red blood cells transfusion to decrease the amount of toxins in his blood stream but it is still too early to see the effects of these therapies. Last Wednesday, Parker did give blood and we did see some positive results with the neutrophils increasing by 200 but this week's blood results should display a much greater increase if the IgG is doing its job of destroying the neutrophil-antibodies.

The increase of 200 was definitely a step in the right direction but half a week and only a single blood test displaying an increase of 200 is not enough to let us know that we are in the clear. Now, if they tell us that Parker's numbers have also increased significantly this week and that his toxins have decreased to a level that they are happy with then I will be much more relaxed.

We have spent the past week doing a lot of walking and traveling around Milano. Today, Nonna and Nonno took a trip to the mall near the Gesate subway stop. We heard about it last night and we thought that letting them check it out first would be a good idea. Although we do take extreme precautions to make sure that Parker can be included in as much site-seeing as possible we decided to give him a rest for one day.

I have decided to upload three new videos of Parker on the right side bar. If you want to see a great video then check out the roller coaster video. We love it.

Hi Parky,
We LOVED the video! I couldn't believe how long the ride was! What a treat for you and Nonno. You are just the cutest little boy. I really hope your numbers are good this week (as I'm sure they will be) and that you all get to explore more of Milan.
We miss you all soooo much and can't wait for you to come home.
Auntie Christini, Uncle Mikey and Jacob xo
