Default Long overdue Update

I've wanted to add a short update on our PennyPie for some time now, but I'm still trying to nail down a new photo hosting source. Short story is she is doing GREAT and better than ever expected by her Dr. As of our last visit we are close to 90% kidney function compared to 60ish% a year and a half ago. The Dr.'s goal is to actively monitor kidney function so that these 2 little kidneys will last her lifetime. Prayers answered and prayers continued.

We flew to her last Dr. Visit to downtown KC...

We got an impromptu tour of the Children's Mercy hangar while we were there.

Pie REALLY likes visiting Gma and Gpa at the Lake, departing on a drizzly morning...

She's always ready to fly if there's food involved...

IMC puts her to sleep, her favorite flying is 500-1000 AGL spotting things on the ground.

Pie and her little brother visiting TruTrak...

Pie helping me polish the bottom of the horizontal stabilizer...
