"Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, O LORD, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all. Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things. In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all. Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name." 1 Chronicles 29:10-13

Kyle is still resting comfortably in the level 3 NICU, where he shares a room with 2 twin girls. We expect him to be in level 3 at least another day or so, but are in no hurry to move to level 2. It's more peaceful in the 'twins' room versus 10 to a room in level 2. This morning Kyle was still a little groggy and his eyes were puffy as noted by the pictures above.

Kyle has had a busy evening.....Mommy arrived in town and both Kyle and Mommy are elated to be reunited! Kyle was so happy to see Mommy, that he stayed awake for 4 hours! Madison is staying with her best friend Reese for a couple days until Daddy gets home on Thursday. Kyle received a blood transfusion, it has been nearly a month since his last 'tomato juice'...hopefully this will be his last. Kyle has resumed feedings. Kyle is currently on half feedings....He receives 24 cc's every 3 hours and they will increase the feedings by 3 cc's every 6 hours...and should be back to his full feeds (42 cc's) within 48 hours. Tonight Mommy was able to give Kyle his first bottle since his surgery.

Today Kyle's girlfriend Rylee was scheduled to have her retinal eye exam, we pray that her ROP has not progressed and that she will not need laser surgery.

Kyle's weight is up to 5lbs. 6 ozs. (2545 grams). We believe most of the gain overnight is a result of all the IV fluids he has been receiving since his milk was suspended.

Your faithful prayers continue to be heard!

Much Love,

Joe, Jennifer, Madison and Kyle.

Joe and Jennifer, How special you are getting to overlap for a few days. Kyle seems to respond to every treatment he receives so we will pray optimistically for a favorable outcome yet again. How has his blood pressure been or is too soon to tell since he is still feeling the "benefits" of the drugs?
It is very thoughtful of you to have us pray for his little friend, Rylee. These babies, their families and the facilities/staff that attend to them are remarkable.
Have a great time all together! Laura

Jennifier & Joe
So glad you all got to be together for a couple days, as this is really hard on both of you being apart so long. It will be so good when you can be home and have your family back together.

Glad Kyle is doing good and knew Jennifier when she came back, that shows he is getting more alert and getting older.I sure have been praying all his reports come in good and his eyes do good.

You all take care and again give him a big hug and kiss from Aunt Sandra. I love you all.

Love & Prayers, Aunt Sandra

P.S. Jennifier did you ever get a card from my sister Ruth? She had got it back once and resent it and she was wondering if you got it, she mailed it to the hospital in Kyles name.

Dear Jennifer and Joe,

Again, I'm Kelley Segedy's friend, Amy and have been faithfully checking on Kyle's growth and progress. Having a premie myself makes all of this so real. As encouragement, it gets easier and easier as you may be noticing and with God's help and strength, leaning on Him makes each day possible. We trust that all will continue to go well and that Kyle heals and grows into a healthy baby and boy. We are blessed by your story. Jer. 33:3
