Kelsey and Kathleen are all smiles!

Kelsey and Kathleen are at it again! When these two get together, the room is full of nonstop chatter. Kathleen recently visited Kelsey during one of Kelsey’s hospital visits, where they talked about everything from Kelsey’s hair bow collection, the latest happenings in the world of wresting, Kelsey’s dog, Kathleen’s summer plans, what’s happening in Pitt Cheer, and the recent Pittsburgh Marathon (which Kelsey’s parents ran!).

Kathleen recently visited Kelsey during one of Kelsey’s hospital trips. Kelsey was so excited to know that Kathleen would be there waiting for her at the hospital. She knew she had something to look forward to that day. She loved introducing “her friend Kathleen” to her nurses as they filtered in and out of her room. Never a dull moment, they talked about everything from Kelsey’s hair bow collection, the latest happenings in the world of wresting, Kelsey’s dog, Kathleen’s summer plans, what’s happening in Pitt Cheer, and the recent Pittsburgh Marathon (which Kelsey’s parents ran!). They discussed their summer plans, and even talked of a possible park visit with Kelsey’s dog in the near future! Kelsey was sad to leave Kathleen at the end of the appointment and she can’t wait to see her friend again soon!
