God is answering prayer - I can't thank each of you enough that are praying for baby kyle. Today his kidneys did great - they continued the medicine and he started his last dose of this course just 7 minutes ago. Kyle has gone (in one day) from 60 bpm to 45 bpm with his blood gases holding steady! This is an amazing day. They are bringing down the percent oxygen they are giving him also. These are all positives. Kyle had a great day - one nurse said he was showing off!
I loved his nurse today - she made his little burn pad (that is his bed b/c of his skin being too young) into a little snuggie - He looked so cozy and restful today. he likes to be all snuggled up, he likes his legs froggy style, he really does settle down when i sing to him. I absolutly love to just sit and look at him and learn all about him.
my emotions and thoughts are kinda jumbled tonight.
the doctors that care fro kyle are brilliant all the way from the world renown neonatal guy to the bedside nurse that tends to his every need. Brilliant. however soemtimes the doctors look at you and it is like they recognize the hope and then look at you with this pity that I have never seen before. It is in those moments that I continue to beg God to allow me to rest in faith. I am having to learn an all new meaning to that phrase.
this concept in the depth that I am learning- it is hard b/c I truly am used to looking to my husband - you know that place - the one where your head rests when you hug the love of your life. It is the place that for me has never found uncertainty. If I am ever unsure I can rest there and know that it really will all be okay - and now there is still no safer place in the world but even this place now has uncertainty. how do I deal with that - this time I see a super hero of a dad who also feels helpless to rescue his littlest buddy (micro buddy as we call him). I guess that leaves us learning together. we talked about this today - together - that is important! rest in faith. I have often said that I think the greatest gift of God is increased faith. I might have been right.
well - sorry for the ramble tonight - no really funny stories today - it was a good steady day for Kyle - but I second john when I say - PLEASE keep praying, PLEASE keep interceding on Kyle's behalf.
true community astounds me.
- John and Kelly
- This story begins with 5 people. John, Kelly, Jadon, Jack, and Kyle (he is only 23 weeks old... and he is still safely tucked away in his mommy's belly) In an hour's time Kyle made his way into the world. 1 pound, 3 ounces- 11 and a half inches long. This family will never be the same. This child is a warrior. He has the spirit of a Lion, and more courage than a whole pride. He is fierce, and fearless- and he is teaching us to fear the Lord- and to believe that God is in our midst and healing even now. Join us as pray, as we praise, and as we journey through this life as lovers of God and all His glory.
