It was so wonderful to read that Jaymun will be going home soon. The
pictures of Jaymun sitting up and smiling are heartwarming and seeing him
with his brothers and sister just overwhelms one with emotion. What an
incredible family you have. We continue to check the site and keep Jaymun
and the entire Kaat family in our prayers.

It's Amiyah's family from the PICU checking in on your progress before I go to bed.
Was thinking about you and thought I would quick check your site. I am very glad to hear that you are doing well.
I agree w/your mother that their are some very dedicated nurses that work in the PICU that go above and beyond.
We had the pleasure of having Lucretia a few times and she did a wonderful job w/Amiyah.
Anyway....glad to see those prayers are working in your favor.
We'll keep them coming;)

Our family in IL is sending prayers for your little guy! What a handsome little one!
We caught on to Jaymun's story from the link in the Night Sky Murals website and just wanted you to know that

I think there is no nobler profession on this earth than those who work selflessly for the health and well being of little babies.
Lucretia is certainly a blessing. My sister is an oncology nurse and has always wanted to be – it’s her calling.
I am so pleased with Jaymun’s recovery. Blessings -

I had no idea what you all were going through until earlier today when I talked to Dave. After we got off the phone I couldn't pull myself away from the website. I've sat and cryed and laughed for the last 3 hours while reading the journal & watching the videos.
I just wanted you all to know that our thoughts and prayers are with you..

Dear Kaat Family,
What a wonderful update to read today! It's so good to see pictures of Jaymun smiling that beautiful smile. His eyes just sparkle.
Jaymun may not understand the test he is being put through now, but your journals, photos & video will surely help him to recognize the powerful love & devotion of his family when he is older.
Kudos to the wonderful doctors and nurses that are taking such good care of him. May they continue to treat Jaymun with their knowledge, unwavering dedication & gentle hands.
Dave & Jennifer, stay strong & know that thousands are praying for you all. Your children are richly, richly blessed to have such caring, devoted parents.
Many blessings, Jenny R & family

What an amazing test God has put your family through – obviously He knew that you were (individually and cumulatively) strong enough to handle whatever comes your way. I have been sending my prayers for Jaymun since just before Devon’s bone marrow went in – I originally linked from Jody’s blog. Your posts are an amazing record of your last six months, and I am sure it will be beneficial to Jaymun when he is older, and he can understand what he went through as such a young boy.
Thank you for opening up your thoughts, hopes and fears to the world and letting me experience such strength, faith and love.

I check your website almost daily for updates. I too believe that we serve a God who is capable of all things.
Your blog is a reminder to me to treasure the little things and recognize the obstacles in my life for what they are (speed bumps to slow me down).
I keep your family and Jaymun in my prayers daily.
I am praying for a cure so miraculous that even the most entrenched scientific mind can only attribute it to the great physician.
May God continue to bless you.

Dear Jaymun and family,
Karen H. told me about your situation and I clicked on the site.
I pray that you-Jaymun will successfully have the bone marrow
transplant and heal completely.
I pray for all of your family to stay healthy and strong through the
It is very hard to see your child so ill, however, please continue
to lean on Our Great Healer-The Triune God.
In Christ, Marie W Parkston SD

Brilliant vid. I smiled all the way through! The light grunting near the start reminded me of Beavis and Butthead! (No offence!)

Hello Dave, Jennifer, Jaymun, and family!
This is Jessie again.....your RN from the PICU. I check in to your website daily for updates and I think about you guys very
frequently!!! I am so thrilled and so relieved to see how wonderfully he is progressing. The power of prayer is truly
powerful! I continue to say an extra prayer in my daily prayers for Jaymun and the rest of your family!!
Your journal entries are amazing....all of them. Your words are so poignant, so poetic, yet so true and powerful. I often sit here in
deep thought after reading each new entry. The lesson regarding “Habits of faith are more challenging than feats of faith”
pertinent to every day life! In short…I have read the 1-1-07 entry several times. Your words have once again reminded me to not just
read about His lessons….but live them. :-)
From my experience with the children who come through life-threatening situations such as Jaymun’s, the reality of the
little challenging aspects of life can be just as difficult to deal with. As you guys have already discovered, the road to recovery is
very long and very exhausting. Stay strong, have faith, and continue to lean on Him. You are all amazing people, and I know you will
continue to do just that. :-)
As always, I will continue to pray for Jaymun and the rest of the Kaat family! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of Jaymun’s
care. Keep the faith! :-)
P.S…..Thank you SO much for the beautiful and VERY meaningful gift bag! You guys obviously put a lot of thought into it….and opening
that bag totally made my Christmas! Once again, I can’t express how wonderful you guys are! Thank you!
