Hi, I am from Houston and have been reading your blog.
Julie Lyons was a dear friend of mine.
I pray for Jaymun and your whole family. Sometimes its best to Let Go and Let God, and
I mean that in the best possible way. I love the pictures you have on the site.
Just wondering if you all have taken any family pictures ( parents included) that would be nice to see on the site.
If there is anything we can do here in Houston, please let us know
God Bless, April

This is good news, having Jaymun home with your family.
I am so happy for you and I know that God will watch over him just as good if not better
right there at home with you. I am continuing to pray for this sweet little guy and for the rest of your family.
May this make you feel more secure as a family at home, all of you together.
Praying for the Lord to completely heal his body as we look to Him for every breath we take.
Love and Prayers,

We are praying for you and your family to know God's will.
We pray for peace and comfort that only the Lord can give.
Your little Jaymun continues to touch our lives and we are praying for his healing.

Hi Jennifer, Dave and Family,
Wanted to write and say how please we are to hear that you have Jaymun at home.
I have been following his story and getting your emails but have not known what to say to you through
all these troubles. We have been praying for Jaymun at our church here in England that God take you all
in his loving arms and does what he sees best. I am so pleased that you get to have Jaymun home with you.
I can't imagine what you have gone through these past years.
I hope you find the time at home a wonderful time for your whole family and that God's love for
Jaymun shines even brighter with all of you around.
We will continue to pray for all of you and that What ever happens the love that
God has for each of you supports you. Take care and best wishes.
You are in our thoughts and prayers.
May God Bless All of You,
Sara and Alastair Anderson and Family

Dave, I pray that in 'the stillness' you will find Gods' blessed peace,
and that you will see the awesomeness of what only God can do and who God is.
Your family is continually in our thoughts and prayers.

Hi Jaymun and family
You are in our thoughts and prayers each and everyday.
We will be coming back to the HOT unit on Monday and can't wait to see you back to your spunky self.
You are a miracle and no matter what Gods plan is for you,
I want to thank you and your family for showing us what true, unconditional love looks like in this world
with too many shadows. Your family is an inspiration to ours, and many other families about love, honesty
and trust that God has a reason for everything that we may not understand at the moment -
but will in lifetimes to come. Keep fighting you strong little man!
Love Angie Tim Madleyn and Lieym Bovee

I want to let you know that I have been praying for this precious little boy and asking God to continue
to give you miracles and healing. Asking
God to cover you all with His peace and wisdom as you watch Him work in Jaymuns little life.
Praying for new strength for each day for you all
As you go through this most heart wrenching time of watching your little boy fight with all his might.
God bless you all. Prayers continue here.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
I sent an email to all my friends asking that they say extra prayers for Jaymun too.

I'm sorry to hear that Jaymun is sick again.
I've read your journal and I'm praying for him and your family. Hang in there.

We have had a major accident over the last week, DD dove into the
shallow end of a pool and broke her neck, thanks to quick thinking on
the part of her swim coach, she will recover but it will be a long
process, but in the meantime I had not seen an update to Jaymun until
now. I have been praying for him fervently and am glad to see there is
some positive things happening!! I want you to know we are keeping
your whole family covered in prayer. Glenna

Dear Kaat Family,
We are praying for Jaymun everyday. Keep your faith strong and know that GOD is Jaymun's doctor.
We served a powerful living GOD, never loose your faith and continue to trust him.
I agreed with you, I will see birthday pictures when Jaymun turns 3, 8, 12 ...years old.

Hi Jennifer and Dave,
Words cannot express my thoughts and prayers that are going out to you and your family.
When the apostle Paul speaks about groaning in the Spirit
, that's what I feel.
My heart goes out to all of you. Like you I know that God still works miracles today but
we don't know His perfect will nor His plan. I do know this, however, that the Lord is drawing you closer
and closer to Himself, into dimensions that many of us who have not experienced what you are, will never really see.
We also know that He is close to the broken hearted and those crushed in spirit.
We know He will never leave nor forsake you and we know how much He loves each of you.
We will continue to pray because that's what God is asking us as a church family to do.
We will be obedient and watch what He is doing. When I think of the two of you I think of you as
sitting on a rock and Bob and I (and others) are holding up your hands because this is a great battle.
May His love and strength continue to carry you through.
In Christ's Love,

We have been praying for Jaymun and your entire family.
I have also posted a prayer request on our boys caringbridge site,
www.caringbridge.org/visit/iandustan, as we know the power of prayer.
It was great to see you all out in the family lounge this evening, Jaymun looked great.
Stay strong and continue to hold tight to your faith in our Awesome God!

We met Jaymun's grandfather through a Culligan installation. Just want the family to know he is in our prayers.

Jennifer: Glad you stopped by the blogs
Jennifer Kerber called me that very night and was so 'honored'
that you had taken time to read her blog and she was so touched by what you wrote.
I don't know how you guys see yourself through all of this, if you do at all,
but I want you to know that we think you are amazing people.
You really do have a strong Faith. And there are many who are watching your son and praying.

Everyday I look foward to coming to work to see Jaymun and the family.
They are all such wonderful people and have welcomed me into their lives with open arms.
It has been my pleasure to experience this ongoing journey with them.
Jaymun is in my thoughts and prayers everyday at home and at work.
I enjoy reading the journals because they are written so well and elicit such emotion that it is difficult
to walk away without a teary eye. Yet, I continue to read them frequently and enjoy watching the videos
to see the silly things that Dad (Dave) and I do to entertain Jaymun.
See the videos
and you will know what I mean....

What a gift !! Those are the days that you will hold close to your heart,
the days that they perk up and you hear that laugh you have been waiting for,
that smile, you want to see.
those days are the best !! ...continued blessings and strength,

Dave, Jennifer, and family,
We'll continue to hold you before God for strength, healing and comfort. Tim and Michelle B.

Willow has a very specific bed time routine and part of that routine is praying every night before I put her in bed...
We pray for her uncle Larry in Iraq that God would keep him safe.
We pray for her great uncle George that God would heal his body and we pray for you, the Kaat family...
that God would give you all strength and heal Jaymun.
It's just a simple prayer but God hears.

My heart is breaking and my tears are flowing right now after reading your last few days of updates.
I have been praying for Jaymun and your family for close to two years now... that sweet little face
is so familiar to me. There are no words to say with what you must be going through...
as a mother of 2 young boys myself, I can not imagine the daily pain and horror for all of you.
I will continue to lift Jaymun to our Lord and ask that He give all of you the strength to endure whatever
comes in the following weeks, months and years. Although we have never met, your family and dear Jaymun,
have affected me deeply. God be with you all.

Dear Kaat Family,
I had heard about your family from a friend that had a fund raiser for your son Jaymun.
When she had told me I had tears in my eyes when she told me that ur little bundle of joy has a nasty disease,
it hurts me so bad to hear that little children have to suffer with deadly diseases that affect the whole family.
But I hope that everything works out for your family and our prayers and thoughts are with u always.
Jesus is watching over ur family and especially little Jaymun to keep him safe. God be with you

To Jaymun's Dear Family,
I have been out of town and away from my computer for over a week.
The very first thing I did upon arriving home was to check on Jaymun... a sweet baby boy that I have never met,
but think of so often. I just wanted to tell you that I am praying for his healing, for your peace,
and for your witness to spread to those who need to know the Savior you speak of so beautifully!

Dear Kaat family,
My prayers continue for Jaymun and your whole family.
I wish you peace each and every precious day and the presence of mind to continue recognizing the gifts you're given.
Take each moment as it comes, peacefully, and paying attention to all the little details;
we get so wrapped up in unimportant things and forget what's really important.
Appreciate the grace and the blessings of every day; we tend to overlook this in our busy lives,
especially when we're wrapped up in the midst of a great struggle.
Enjoy the strength of family and friends while they're here - our journeys can all too often be too short.
But in the end, when we have done the jobs we were sent here to do, we return to the Creator,
regardless of any of our intentions, regardless of how hard we fight.
When it is Jaymun's time, and none of know when that is, I pray that you are there in presence and
spirit to tell him it's ok to go - whether it's next week or years from now.
Wishing you Christ's Peace. Diane

I've been reading about Jayman and feel so badly for the relapse. When
I read today's message
, I thought how wonderful to have
some good time with Jayman. Last night before I fell asleep I prayed
that God would let you have some special time with him. I'll continue
to pray for all your family.
