Our little HLHS Hero
We wanted a place to say a special thanks to all of you who have done so much to help us through this difficult time. We will try to keep it updated as much as possible.
I would like to send out a special thanks to Allen Elliot, a nice father whom I meet at the park while Tristan and Ella were playing; he was so kind as to post a Reddit Blog, which in turn helped a great deal.
I would like to extend this thank you to several complete strangers that donated to this cause; Don, Sinthanai, Tony, Brian, Sandra, Rachel, Gyongyi, Matt, Julian, Michael, Judith, Francis, Robert, Jennifer, Dana, Paul, Dave, Steven, Jayme, and Jennifer.

Thank You Alan
Briahnna, Tristan’s big sis. You have been so great sweetheart! We are soooooo very PROUD of you. You have stepped up and been so good through all this. Thank you for helping take care of Ella when she needed you cause she didn’t have me! I never imagined a child could do all the things you have done. Thank you for calling and checking up on Tristan and me every morning before school and then for your calls each night to check again. You are such a blessing to your dad and me. We love you sweetie!
Jacque and Rick Timm (grandma & grandpa), for being there on surgery day to help us through and for all the trips back and forth and the help with the girls, and helping us pack for an upcoming move. Brenda (grandma) for all the help with the girls.
Thank you aunt Tam and uncle Scott for taking Ella into your family so that she has somewhere stable to be throughout all this crazyness and for watching Briah that first week too.
Super big thanks to the entire Kriegh family for taking in both of our huge doggies in and loving them as if they were their own, that has been an enormous help.

Bob and Rhonda Carlisle for helping out with Ella last week and for the extra support, all very much appreciated.
