Welcome Back, everyone!
We have a few topics to cover in this blog, but we will start with our big announcement. Remember our old and outdated Herrin Twins website? We have now redesigned it with updated information! Check out herrintwins.com and explore the new website. Our blog is also accessible from the website; along with our videos, social media, and other content.
Maliyah's transplant was over a month ago and her recovery is going wonderfully. We are infinitely thankful for her donor giving of their own kidney so Maliyah could have renewed energy. And she certainly does-- Maliyah is able to swim now that she has her catheter out, and rarely feels exhausted like she so often did during the two years we waited on the list. The thing is, there are thousands of people still on the list-- and millions more who have two working kidneys. They have what doctors today are calling a "spare". We, Kendra and Maliyah Herrin, urge you to donate your spare. If you are above 18, you may be eligible to be a living donor. Visit this site to learn more and save a life!
Kendra is recovering from a successful surgery to remove her infection. She has learned to put antibiotics into her IV PICC line perfectly. We are very thankful for the amazing medical care she received, and that we caught the infection on time. On a different note, Ezra has learned how to crawl very well and pulling himself up to stand! He is growing up so fast.
Be sure to check out tomorrow's video! (Wednesday is a holiday)
