Parker's Girlfriend

It has been a while since the last time I wrote an article and again I do apologise. To be honest, not too much has occurred in the past week. Parker did give quite a bit of blood last Wednesday, and his neutrophils did decrease making him once again neutropenic. Well, neutropenic in the sense that the particular vile of blood they tested showed that he had less than 1500 neutrophils per unit of blood. That said, no one seemed that too concerned about it. Parker will give blood in a couple of days to see what his white blood count is at that time.

Since things here in Italy have seemed to turn around for us in the past month and a bit, it does look like we should be able to return home to Canada near the end of this month. We are definitely looking forward to seeing our family and friends again. It will still be a long time before Parker can live a normal life but at least it should be closer to normal by being at home. I know that Parker can't wait to see his Nana and Gaga, and Nonna and Nonno again.

Parker really has not seen Francesco in the past while, but the same can not be said about his two little friends from Ireland. In the past week, his two little friends have started to pay more attention to our little guy. Parker loves it when he sees them in the hallways and always makes sure to dance for them and blow them kisses. It was a couple of days ago that the older of the two turned to her mommy and said, “I think Parker is in love with me”. She then turned back to Parker and started blowing kisses back at him. So as it now stands, it seems as if Parker has his first girlfriend.

We have recently started Parker-proofing the drawers in our apartment. Unfortunately, there are too many drawers for us to keep Parker out of, so we still find ourselves chasing Parker around to make sure that he is not pulling everything out of all the drawers.

I hope to write another article in the next day or so so that I do not keep everyone waiting to find out what has been happening over here in Italy with Parker, my wife and I. I am going to post another separate article with only images so those of you who are interested in seeing the little guy can do just that.

Our Darling Parker:

Well it does look like you have your very first girlfriend - and an older one at that. How priceless is that. You keep dancing for her - you have the right moves and keep blowing lots of kisses at her. It is amazing how these not too subtle antics really impress the girls. You go Our little man.

Jett said to say hello to you and that he can hardley wait to see you. We were with him yesterday. He
loves Baby Einstein and we're sure he would love a Curious George video as well so we will have to make sure he gets one just like you have.

We love you and pray for the day very soon when we will see you once agin.

All our love to the three DesLauriers

Nana and Gaga (those people)
