April 5, 2007

"Do not seek what you should eat or what you should drink, nor have an anxious mind…your Father knows that you need these things. But seek the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you." Luke 12:29-31

I am pleased to report that Mr. Kyle had another largely uneventful day today, which is exactly what he needs. Actually, it wasn't totally uneventful; he continued to make strides with his breathing. He was down to about 40% oxygen for most of the day and some parts of the day it reached as low at 36% (recall that the goal is 21%; he was at 50% yesterday). That means he is able to do more to oxygenate himself with less oxygen being pumped into him. We still have not received the results from the tests that were done yesterday, hopefully we will hear something tomorrow. Thankfully, I was able to hold Kyle again today - for the fourth day in a row! It is a good thing to, because Daddy is flying in tonight and I am sure he will hog Kyle for the next few days!

Another eye exam was done on Kyle yesterday and we received some good news. A babies eyes develop in stages. As I mentioned last week, Kyle's eyes were only about 30% developed when he was born. A common problem among preemies is that their eyes may be developing normally, but then they fail to move to the next stage. Since the doctor last saw Kyle, his eyes finished one phase and began developing in another stage. Praise the Lord!

Sorry for the short post...I am off to the airport to pick up Joe and Madison. I can't wait to see them. It has been so long since Joe was down here...actually I have not saw him since March 12. I can't wait for Joe to see Kyle, he has changed so much!

God Bless You,

Jennifer, Joe, Madison and Kyle

P.S. Happy Birthday Dad! :)

Dear Jennifer, I am certain Kyle will be as responsive to his Dad's and sister's visit as you are! Sounds like lots of good news...a nice way to celebrate Easter.
Blessings to each of you. Laura
