"He will keep in perfect peace all those who trust in Him, whose thoughts turn often to the Lord. Trust in the Lord God always, for the Lord Jehovah is your everlasting strength." Isaiah 27:3-4

Madison arrived safe and sound tonight. It is wonderful to see her, I have missed her so much!

Today was a very peaceful and quiet one for Kyle. I was able to do Kangaroo Care with him for a couple hours this afternoon. I am always thankful for the time I am able to spend holding him, but especially grateful that I was able to do it today before Madison arrived. To make it beneficial for Kyle, we have to Kangaroo for at least an hour and a half... I am not sure how much I will be able to Kangaroo with Kyle while Madison is here.

For the first time this week, Kyle's lungs looked better on his x-ray. The infiltrates the doctors were concerned with have started to dissipate. They have begun to wean Kyle off the ventilator with the hopes that they can try CPAP again in the next couple days. Kyle received his last dose of antibiotics today, the Pneumonia is pretty much cleared up. Praise God! Feedings are going well and his stomach continues to tolerate the milk...he is up to 7 cc's (a little over a teaspoon) every three hours.

As always, thank you for the thoughts and prayers.

God Bless You,

Jennifer, Joe, Madison and Kyle

Good Morning Jennifer and Madison,
You may have less opportunity to "kangaroo" with Kyle while Madison is with you but Kyle will benefit from her interaction with him and he will most likely sense the relief and joy you feel having your daughter in your midst.
We got a new puppy in November and named her "Roo" because she was small enough to fit into a pocket at the time.....each time you mention the opportunity you have to cuddle with Kyle I think of how lovely an image it is that he is in yours and the Lord's protective shelter and care, feeling the warmth of your embrace, hearing the beating of your heart....
It is wonderful news he is responding to treatment and continuing to grow. We are hopeful but will continue to be faithful in our prayers. Laura

Please tell Kyle that I am thinking about him and praying for his speedy recovery every day. Give Madison a big hug and kiss for me; you know, one of those wet ones like Jesse gives her. And don't let her wipe the kiss off!!!
