Kyle's NICU Story in Pictures

boys will be boys... (john)

Today was a good day.  It started with leading at woodsedge montgomery for me, ... which was great.  We debuted one of the new songs of the new album that was suppose to release, OH LAST JUNE but who is counting, right?  (only those who pre purchased the cd thinking it would be here now... sorry.) ANYWAY,... that was cool to hear the song come to life on stage, and to lead it with a real live crowd.  I came home, took a 10 minute power nap after lunch,... which turned into an hour power nap.  Kelly took off for the hospital and I got to hang with the boys today.... just the men... we had fun.   Driving the motorized jeeps outside, a trip to walmart,... a few new veggietales movies later,... we had fun.  Jadon didn't go to bed till 9:30 pm tonight...
(don't tell kelly, grandmothers, nannies or the school tomorrow.)  But, ... we DID have fun.

quote of the day... It got to be around 6:45 and Jadon was not letting me forget that he was hungry.  He layed on the kitchen floor all wailing and scooting around declaring his dire hunger saying... "I'm dying the death... I 'm dying the death..."

I was like,... "seriously Jadon, ... really... dying the death, huh?... come on."

then, I realized just how truly funny this was.  He is 5. Ridiculous that he has such
the sense of humor, wit, etc...  all while Jack was being jack in the background wandering
around skipping over millions of dollars worth of toys to try and find something of mommy's or daddy's to break... the more expensive the better... haha  boys will be boys I guess.

Kelly came back from the hospital very encouraged tonight.  One of the doctors (who is very good) ... well, he is really good, very respected... intelligent,... BUT, we call him dr. doomsday,... anyway, he came in tonight and was very encouraged about Kyle's progress since last time he saw him.  Kel said that Valerie, the NP, presented, and he kept asking questions of whether or not Kyle had this issue or that issue over the last few weeks, ... her answer kept being "no"... "no"... etc... his disposition was very surprised while saying "wow... Wow... WOW!"  Then, he turned to kel and said, "so when do you want to take him home?"  (Kidding of course,... he isn't totally there yet...) BUT, never the less - it is always good when Dr. Doomsday seems encouraged, you know what I mean?  haha... He really is a superb doctor, and we like him.

THEN..., one of our primaries told Kel that Kyle was doing so great.  She made reference to Kyle having favor... this made for a very good day/night... ofcourse, after holding him too.

Valerie, (one of our primary nurses - not the NP)  had him all dressed up in a "cute" little outfit (as kelly said...)  I am sure he was adorable.  

All in all, a good day.  Please pray for Coy.  He is our little buddy up there.  He is a few weeks younger than kyle.  He is fighting hard.  Chris and Anne Marie are his parents.  Great peeps.
Lift up their whole fam if you will!

Hey there John,
I am praising God for the report on Kyle!!! I am glad you got to hang out with Jadon and Jack yesterday... I'm sure they loved it (and you too). I promise I won't tell Diana or Heidi that Jadon was up so late!

Much love and prayers!

Thanks for the report. It's always good to start the day knowing Kyle is doing well.

Still praying, still believing and still expecting continued healing and growth, and praising GOd for what He has done.

YAY for the boys getting some good Daddy time! I'm so glad Kelly got to go to the hospital yesterday - even though she didn't have a babysitter! And I'm so glad Jadon & Jack got time with you, John! I know they loved it.

Awesome news about Kyle! So when are you gonna bring him home, Kelly? :) Just teasing, but I can't wait to see him be a part of the Sherrill HOUSEhold!

Still praying for Kyle, and looking forward to the day Kelly's visions are a reality! :)

My "daily dose of cyber-Kyle" is even better when it's good news. Still praying for you guys and won't stop.

John & Kelly,
I am a former student at Northway Baptist Church in Angleton. John & the band used to come play for our weekly services.

I (along with many of the Northway-ers) am praying for you and your precious family. I'm so glad to hear about Kyle's development and growth.

John and Kelly~
I know that Kelly said that she uses this just to get out her perosonal thoughts, which I think is great. I just wanted to say that baby Kyle has such strong and devoted parents that care and love for him. I believe that Kyle will have a great future with this family.
God Bless.

Our Story

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.

Kyle is in the March of Dimes Promo!
