He’s actually mine,” Koesters said. Stover is now listening to her body. “I don’t really like going to the doctor. I try to let things resolve on its own and now I’ve learned you can’t necessarily do that,” Stover said. Kash’s parents said he’s gaining weight and doing well but there’s no word yet when they’ll be able to bring him home.Another surprise both Kash and his mom share the same birthday!
