Match 21, 2007

"The Lord nurses them when they are sick, and soothes their pains and worries." Psalms 41:3

I am happy to report that today was a good day. Kyle and I were able to Kangaroo and I think that cuddle time did us both some good! I so enjoy being able to hold him.

Kyle's oxygen requirements were much better today. His X-ray still doesn't look very good, according to the doctor, however, he is encouraged that Kyle is not having so many desaturations. Kyle is still on antibiotics to fight the lung infection/pneumonia, which the doctors will re-evaluate tomorrow. Kyle's weight is up to 770 grams today, which translates to 1 lb. 11 oz. Thankfully, there isn't much else to report on Kyle news is good news!

Madison will be arriving in Orlando tomorrow night and will spend the next 12 days with me. I am really looking forward to seeing her. Unfortunately, Joe will not be making this trip as he has to work. Although I will obviously miss Joe, it will be nice to spend some "girl time" with Madison for an extended period - her last couple trips have been such short ones. The top two pictures are from Madison's last trip. Notice her shirt...a sweet gift from Grandma and Grandpa Kupiec. The bottom picture is from when Kyle and I did Kangaroo Care today.

Thank you for the prayers, we sense the Holy Spirit's presence in our lives ever stronger each day. It truly is a humbling experience - overwhelmingly humbling. God be praised!

In Christ,

Jennifer, Joe, Madison and Kyle

Jennifer, I can sense your excitment as you prepare for Madison's arrival. I imagine the time spent with her will help ease some of the intensity with which you must be living. The young have a means of just trusting the circumstances which gives us a simpler perspective. Madison is not only getting to bond with her baby brother, but she is also learning wonderful lessons about abiding faith, pure devotion and deep, sacrificial love. Blessings on each of you and may Kyle continue to grow, thrive, respond to treatment and rest in your loving embrace. Laura

What a cutie! Kyle looks so happy and peaceful snuggling with his mommy! What special moments with your precious little guy.

We continue to pray throughout each day for strength to be blessed upon Kyle and your entire family. Your attitude and perspective continues to inspire others.

Jennifer- Hope you are taking care of yourself during this stressful situation. I'm sure some "girl-time" with Madison will be rejuvenating!

much love,

Kara Lewis
