Kinley is 2!!

Today is Kinley's second birthday!! We are so thankfully that God has blessed our lives with her. We love her and all of our girls more than words could express!! As we celebrate her birthday, we are also celebrating that her health continues to be stable. We actually received the news last Friday, that she is being removed from the transplant list. She has been inactive on the list for about a year now. That makes me happy, but a little nervous at the same time. Eek!! I do have a lot of faith in her doctor though, and I know that if anything changes, she will get her listed again ASAP.


If you helped with, participated in, or donated to any of the events that raised money for Kinley's transplant expenses, we are still very appreciative!! Whether it was through the benefit at Luke's Bar and Grill, Jeeper's Creepers, The Cute Kids Contest by Happy Hollow Family Farms and Diekemper Photography, memorials of my mother-in-law Pat Coughlin, donations from area churches and other groups, donations from The Whoo Hoo Sisterhood in memory of Jolene Arend, or just an independent donation, please know that the money, other than a small amount used for expenses from the time of the transplant work up and from medications not covered by insurance, will be saved until the time for transplant comes. We hope it is years away, but we are very comforted by the fact that you all have taken the financial worry away for us so we will be able to concentrate on Kinley's health!!!
