Home sweet home!

Finally-- we got the doctors ok to get back home after the 7th round of IV drugs! Good to GO! There will be close monitoring of the kidney values and Joe's overall health but it sure is good to be HOME tonight! His immune system is suppressed so we will limit his public outings but healthy visitors are welcome. We are so thankful for the doctors, nurses and staff of Baylor Dallas Transplant Institute! Big shout out to Ernie Bryant, Coach Wangler, Coach Settle for brightening Joe's darkest day on Tuesday. There are so many others friends and family and the entire community of Sunnyvale that we are ALL grateful to for visits, cards, texts, emails, posts, meals, goodies, thoughts, and prayers! The journey continues as we have said all along that this is a process and Joe will regain strength and stamina and overall health with time and the good doctors care and of course the support of you ALL and our incredible "kids"!

Clay's efforts to keep raising funds for the National Kidney Foundation through #Quinning4kidneys on Crowdrise.com has crossed the border into Oklahoma as an OKC tv station featured his story and shots, the best feature yet!! Here is the link to his interview with OKC Channel 9: http://www.news9.com/story/30119559/red-dirt-diaries-quinning-4-kidneys

Throughout this ordeal we have learned so many incredible lessons with "Be patient" and "God IS Good!" at the top of the list. And we realize that we are so fortunate to have such a supportive crew and community, which makes Clay's fund raising efforts even more important to help those who are in need and not as fortunate as the Quinn family.  We truly can't imagine....so remember to be generous whenever you can in whatever you do. Thank you , thank you, and thank you!

    Oh, the SON is shining in Sunnyvale now that you are back home, Joe! Sweet news and we are so glad to hear that you are feeling better and stronger. Praying for nothing but brigher and healthier days for you going forward. Take care and stay strong! We all love and miss you.....

    Such blessings! Thanks for your updates which allows us to keep in the loop in prayer support, without being intrusive. You guys have so many aspects of this journey to get through, and by our God's grace, you will! We respect the priorities you have to establish at any given time along the way. The important thing is a healthy Dr. Joe! Love and well wishes to the whole Quinn family! Prayerfully, Joy Richardson
