Kyle's NICU Story in Pictures

Kyle at home...

Kyle is home, but still sick. Kelly is having to keep him upright because everytime she lays him down, he throws up, so she is trying to keep him hydrated and then, keep it in him! He is still pretty sick, but he is home. Kelly was asking people to pray that his fever would break for good, and not go higher again. He needs to keep drinking and eating,... so pray that his little appetite comes back! Also, pray for Kelly as she is very tired. I am in Nashville, left the day before Kyle woke up so sick. I hate being away right now while Kyle is sick but,... here I am blogging from nashville while poor kelly is going on hour 20 something of holding Kyle... she is an incredible mom! Pray for the other dudes at the house too,... Jadon and Jack as they are having to sacrifice some of mom's time right now... they have DeeDee and pops to help them stay occupied,... but are ready for Dad to be home, mom to play and Kyle to be well I am sure! The Sherrill life is as chaotic as ever, but we would have it no other way,... God is at work... even through the trials of sickness...

Please keep praying for all of this!!!!

thanks so much!

Hey there John! Still praying For Kyle as well as Kelly, Jadon, Jack and for you. I cannot imagine what it is like to be so far away when Kyle is sick, but I am thanking God for family and friends who are willing and able to help out!

Much Love and Prayers,

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!
