Jason Kaehler and Kara Jenkins enjoy morning coffee and the antics of their 18-month-old daughter, Peyton. The couple travel from their home in Waitsburg to Spokane every two months to seek the specialty medical care their child needs.

Kara Jenkins' life is ruled by medical appointments. Her family's routine pivots on road conditions, dependable transportation and the health of their little girls ... one in particular. If she and Jason Kaehler are lucky, the couple can get their daughter Peyton into several specialists in one or two days, meaning home life is that much less disrupted, the Waitsburg couple said. Still, about every two months, the family is on the road, headed to Spokane and beyond to take the 18-month-old to see as many doctors as there are fingers on her tiny hands, or nearly so.
