Hello all! I thought I would update you on Makenna since it's been a few months since I posted...

Makenna continues to rock this post cancer life.  They have continued to decrease her anti rejection drugs with no negative complications.  I'm not sure anything could have gone smoother so far! 🤞She should be completely done by the time she goes back to school. 

Right now she is in Florida again while helping her BFF, Alli, move there. She'll be returning home late tonight. She and Alli even got matching tatoos while there! 🥰

She has continued to work and has been lucky enough to get to watch her nieces while their daycare was on maternity leave.  She also completed 3 online classes this summer to catch up a little of the school she missed last year.  We will be moving her into her new appointment in Mankato August 6th. As you can imagine,  she is VERY excited to get back to 'normal' life.  The only thing she's complained about is that her hair isn't growing bank fast enough...😊 If she could only see herself through our eyes and realize how truly gorgeous she is even without hair!!  Makenna even started golfing with her momma!! Maybe she'll even beat me one day....😉

Thank you cannot even been to express our gratitude to all of you who have continued to keep Makenna in your prayers.  God has been so good to us because of you all!! 🙏
