How do i get my script to use current data in post function?

I have this post function script which finds all the subtasks of an issue and sums up a specific field.   It fires when i update the subtask.  The problem is that if i change the data (in the subtask) the script wont read it.  It uses whatever the old data was before i updated.  My script is below. (Dont mind all the debugging messages, im totally new at this)

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import org.apache.log4j.Level
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import org.apache.log4j.Logger
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
def changeHistoryManager=  ComponentAccessor.getChangeHistoryManager()
def user = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()

def cField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Initial Architecture LOE")
def total = 0
def holder = 0
def log = Logger.getLogger("com.eq.CreateSubtask")
def parentIssue

    //get the parent issue
    parentIssue = issue.parentObject
    //get all the custom fields
        log.debug("phil total: Im Here")

def subTasks = parentIssue.getSubTaskObjects()
subTasks.each {
   //log.debug("phil: inside")
   //log.debug( "phil issuetype:"+it.getIssueType()+" resolution:"+it.getResolution())
    log.debug("phil total1: "+it.getCustomFieldValue(cField))
 holder = (it.getCustomFieldValue(cField)as Double) as Integer
    if (holder == null){
        holder = 0
    log.debug("phil total2: "+holder)
    if (it.getIssueType().name == "Feature"){
      total = total + holder}

log.debug("phil total: "+total)

Actually i solved it.  I just put an if statement to get the data from the current subtask instead of the subtask related to the parent.
