Molly's visit with Parker Reynolds with Updates (5/31)

Parker checking out Molly soon
after Molly arrived
Parker Reynolds enjoyed her visit with Molly. When Molly arrived it was HOT, even for Texas. In the 80s in mid March, the new friends spent A LOT of time outside. They spent some time getting to know each other on the first day.

On the second day, two parties were in the plans. First was a Crawfish Boil and engagement party for Mama Megan's friends. Then on to Parker's Scotty's birthday party. Scotty has Microcephaly like both Molly and Parker. Their parents met Molly's new friend, Parker's parents on-line. Parker and Scotty have Lissencephaly, too. After the two parties they all went to Spaghetti Warehouse. What a busy day they had!!!!

Day three was a little more relaxing. Everyone slept in a little longer than normal and they got up to start the business of getting ready to go somewhere. The somewhere was to Mammy's House (Mama Megan's boyfriend, Phillip's mother). While they were in transit to Mammy's house, poor Parker had some NEW seizures :( She was worn out when they arrived at their destination, so Molly and Parker took a nap together.

On the fourth day of Molly's stay with Parker, they hung out home and had a visit with the Occupational Therapy. Molly was able to see Parker have some successful moments with rolling over. After OT, Parker began to get very cranky and tired. Also, her urine had a bad order, so Ms. Megan took her to the doctor, who discovered that Parker had a bad UTI. They went home with Antibiotics. Since Parker wasn't feeling well Parker and Molly went to bed early.

Day five was an extra early day. Parker had an appointment for her hand splint measurement all the way across town at 7:30 am. Hopefully, the splints will help Parker grasp and hold things better. They had breakfast between the first and second appointments. the second appointment was a fitting for leg braces. At home, Molly helped Ms. Megan pack for the big move from Megan's parents home to Mr. Phillip's house, while Parker took a nap. After her nap, Parker's had a successful Vision Therapy session.

They all got up at early for the arrival of Parker's Physical therapist at 7:30 am on the sixth day. Bath-time and nap happened next and then they OT came again. After the busy, morning, Molly and Parker and Ms. Megan were off again. This time they went to the hospital to visit Parker's Great-Grandma (aka Parker's BFF). Great Grandma is in hospice care, but managed to smile when she saw her Great - granddaughter and Molly. They stayed in the hospital as long as they could and on home they went. The SEIZURE MONSTER struck again that night and the entire family and Molly helped poor Parker.

On the first attempt at getting Molly to the post office, Molly and the Cain family had a big scare, when they had to sit on the floor of the post office when a tornado went through their area. Thankfully, no one was hurt. Yet, Ms. Megan had to wait until the next day to send Molly on her way to the next home on Molly's journey, since they evacuated the post office due to more tornadoes descending on the area. Yet, everyone was unharmed . And Molly moved on to her next destination!
