this is how the rounds start each morning... makes it easy to keep track of the days I guess. you know - yesterday was such a good day. Today was so rough. Kyle is having some struggles - and Kyle is doing well! I know that seems like a contradiction but not in the NICU ... not really! He can be doing good in some areas and rough in others.
Please keep praying! Even thought today was rough, he has his favorite nurses these days and they really make all the difference in the world. They are the reason we can go home at night, or eat lunch during the day! They are kind and gentle and unbelievably brilliant. Even more they are gifted by God (each one of them - it is amazing!). all of this includes his team of NPs and doctors too. It really amazes and humbles me that not only they are so gifted but yet they give every ounce of that to MY son. They use all of their experience, effort and energy to save MY son. It stirs a new measure of gratefulness in me.
Today was tough for me - realizing some fears and facing some deep guilt and regret. I know in my head these are from the enemy and I know in my head these are not truth. and one thing I have learned this past year is that when we begin acting in reality on lies from the enemy we get disaster. So one more day - I survive "but by the grace of God". My husband is my rock, my stability, the Holy Spirit is ministering to me through him. He pours out love and comfort, hope and strength. Strange thing is I have to let him - I have to cling to the grace of God so that I can be ministered to. who ministers to him? Please keep praying for our family, for sweet jadon and jack, for me and for john... and for kyle - for complete restoration.
Thank you again! & for those of you that are with us - thank you for understanding our good days and bad, our hurt and our joy. tonight was just a hurt for me but the Lord promises that joy comes in the morning!
until then goodnight.
- 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.
