"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

A Little Look Into My Last Few Days.

(except for the helicopter pictures that will come later when Daddy puts them on the computer.)

Life really isn't that bad here.

You mean I could squeeze the whole bottle into your hands?

Now this is the way to watch CARS.

I am the coolest dude in this ICU!

Even if my Mama looks terrible, all tired and rundown, I love her SO much!

More wires and more tests? Please Daddy, make them stop!

Showing my Uncle the loot you get when you are in ICU!

Hanging with my new soon-to-be sister and my biggest brother, Tito!

Oh yeah! I got these nurses wrapped around my finger.

I screamed for 30 minutes because I hated that you let them put all this stuff on me to study my sleep. Why can't they just stand there and watch me sleep?

Hi Friends,

My Mama and Daddy told me that all over the world people are praying for me and how much I am loved by so many. I know I'm feeling so much better because you are asking Jesus to make me well. Thank you and please, please don't stop praying. I really miss my home and my brothers and sisters and want to be back with them real, real soon!

Lots of Love,

Sweet, precious Kai, What a little trooper you are! Even though you have been sick and not at home, you smile and laugh and brighten up everyone's day.
So many are praying that Jesus will make you well big guy. I know He is going to answer our prayers and I am thankful that He is working through you Kai, to minister to the Doctors and nurses. They can see the joy of the Lord in You, Kai. They can see God's love. They can see Jesus in you.
God bless you little one...
God's healing and God's speed home to your family.
Have a Jesus filled day.
Tell your Mama she looks beautiful!

Bless your precious little heart, Kai! We are praying for you in Alabama...we know you are in God's Hands and He is the BEST DOCTOR ever! Even though you are sick, you are still the cutest little boy ever! Your smile lights up a room! I know you are bringing much sunshine and SONshine to that hospital...

Suzy said...

We will certainly keep praying for Kai. His mom looks FAB. I would have the nappiest hair you could ever imagine. I had my appendix out on Saturday (no shower that morning because I went to the ER after barfing all night long), and by Sunday my hair was beginning to form nasty looking dreadlocks.
