good day!

today kinley had to her 18 month wellcare visit and i am so happy to say that kinley is back on the growth chart and is 21lbs!! she is also 25% in height which is a all time high for her! the last couple months have been so hard! she has been so sick and lost so much weight it was very stressful. i finally feel like i can relax about her and hopefully this is a new start! she is also really starting to walk more which just makes my heart overflow! i always thought her joints would be okay, but there is always a little part that makes you worry if there was something really wrong. so each time is see her drunken sailor walk my face is beaming! i LOVE IT!
this afternoon my best friend from college came out for a visit with her family! we have kept in great touch over the years. we have walked along side of each other through many hard times and through many amazing times! i just love this girl and her heart! i love our friendship and that no matter how long it has been since we talked or have seen each other we just pick right up where we left off! those kind of friendships are a treasure! we are headed up to grand lake for the week to stay at my aunt and uncle's amazing cabin! i am so excited i can hardly stand it! i can't wait to have the kids play and to just hang out with kacy and joey. a little escape is just what the doctor ordered for us all right now!
mark is doing okay, he is back on some meds to deal with some increase of symptoms. we continue to take one day at a time. he is such a positive man, which amazes me every day! we trust that in God's timing he will go into remission. he goes back in a couple weeks for some more tests seeing if the new medication is working. but for now we try to be patient and give his body time to heal. some days that is easy....some days that is sooooo hard!
love you all!
