I love all the new pics, and it is not just because I love fall and
pumpkins, but because it is so fun to see Jaymun so happy with his
family just enjoying life! We pray daily as a family for Jaymun! My
boys know his name well and lift him up before the Lord each night
before bed! Thank you for sharing your lives, daily miracles, and
beautiful pics!! --gFamily

Jaymun is such a wonderful presence. My husband and I read the blog, and we talk about how cute he is all the time. We just love him. What a lovely family you are!

Dear Jaymun and Family,
I am a friend of a friend of Issac's grandma Barb.
She has forwarded on your web page along with Rey Rey. My heart goes out to you.
What a beautiful little boy. God blessed me with a 19 month old granddaughter Addison.
I am so happy to see that you have faith in god. I will add Jaymun to my prayer list. God Bless you all.

Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I wish I could be there for the fundraiser for Jaymun,
but I am doing the next best thing. What I did was made up a bunch of bookmarks with Jaymun's picture on them
(hope you don't mind) and sent them up to Sheboygan. What ever you make off them is for Jaymun's benefit.
I thought it would be a way to remind people to pray for Jaymun, not that most of them would forget.
You have many people praying for that little man of yours, including in Tucson AZ.
I'm so thrilled to see the progress and answers to prayer. You all are in my thoughts and prayers every day.

Please put this with your other prayers. "O God, my God! I have set out from my home, holding fast unto the cord of Thy love,
and I have committed myself wholly to Thy care and Thy protection.
I entreat Thee by Thy power through which Thou didst protect Thy loved ones from
the wayward and the perverse, and from every contumacious oppressor, and every
wicked doer who hath strayed far from Thee, to keep me safe by Thy bounty and Thy grace.
Enable me, then, to return to my home by Thy power and Thy might.
Thou art, truly, the Almighty, the Help in Peril, the Self-Subsisting."

Hi I have been following Jaymun's story for quite awhile. I got the website from Ian's website.
You have an amazing family. You have an amazingly strong little boy.
You all do so well with him and I can tell you are enjoying every moment you have with him here on earth.
I pray that you have alot more time with him.
He is almost part of my daily routine now, looking for updates and praying for all of you. My prayers are with you all always.

He seriously is the cutest thing ever.
I'm happy he is home with you!

Hello David, Jennifer & Family,
Mary especially has been keeping up with Jaymun's Journey and now, tonight, we just had to write and let you know how we enjoyed your
entree. What's quite amazing too, last week Sunday morning we sang Psalter 345; Our Unsleeping Guardian. We also thought of your Aunt Janice (it was her birthday that day), it is also one of her favorite songs. As we read the posting we could sing the tune.
We told our kids of some of your memories at Grandma's house, they too remember getting cookies while playing with Jeremy. We can still picture how it looked in your neighborhood in your growing up years.
We see how Jaymun's Journey has effected many people's lives. Such wonderful quotes from Scripture "Be Still and know that I am God" really finds a home when we surrender to God's will.
We keep you and your family in our thoughts & prayers. What an awesome God Grandma's God is.

Hi David and family. I finally visited your website.
This big family of ours is hard to keep up with! It is so nice to see Jaymun, he looks great.
I just want you to know I have been thinking about you all and hoping you are well.
The site is a wonderful way to know what is going on with you all.
Love, Your Cousin Stacy, Dave and Isabella

Hi Kaat family! Congrats on the new family member, Tucker is awesome! That little guy will be a special blessing for many years to come, good choice. I am thrilled to hear of Jaymun's continued improvement, you are all amazing! :)
You are right Jen, every tiny moment is so precious and they find a unique spot in our hearts forever.
Sean, you look so grown-up with that missing tooth, good for you!
Hugs and love to you all, Joanie Stoffel

Jennifer - I did our heart good to read your journal from Sept 15th.
We've missed having Mom's perspective on Jaymun's Journey.
You have a wonderful way of expressing yourself.
Have fun with Tucker and know that we continue to pray for your family.

Hello dear Kaat family! Jaymun looked absolutely adorable and cheerful the other day visiting at CHW. And the pictures of Tucker are so cute!
But this message goes out to Sean...CONGRATULATIONS on losing your very first tooth!!! How exciting! Your smile is so cute, but my question is how do you chew your food with a missing tooth?!? :) Was the tooth fairy good to you? Can't wait to see that smile is person! Congrats again!
Love, Nurse Kelly

Hi Kaat family!
I have been reading the blog and praying for Jaymun and your family for a while now.
I remember after your entry on July 23, where you said the doctors believed Jaymun had a matter of weeks to live,
I prayed so hard and fervently. I wrote out my prayer on a few pieces of paper because it helps the prayer
become more concrete to me than just saying it out loud.
I'm not going to pretend that I understand the situation in its entirety, but from what I can gather,
Jaymun has improved since the grim prognosis you wrote about. I do firmly believe that it is because of all
the prayer warriors you guys have for your family and your sweet little boy. I've been meaning to write for
a while, but when I read my Daily Verse today, I knew the time was now. See bold:
'While he was still speaking, someone from the ruler's house came and said, Your daughter is dead; do not trouble the Teacher any more. But Jesus on hearing this answered him, Do not fear; only believe, and she will be well.
The Bible says that the people present in this situation actually laughed at Jesus when He said the man's daughter would be well. They knew she was dead. Yet Jesus had a different perspective, and a different plan. Knowing that His ways are often so different than ours, keep faith in God's economy. What man says is impossible, God says is possible. Trust in that when you're facing circumstances where only God's way of doing things could offer hope.'
I hope this brings you some hope and comfort. God Bless you, your family and loved ones.

Hi! It must be frustrating to find out some things are OK and others are not.
I have prayed for little Jaymun and your family that the good Lord will watch over you all and to
make him well. It is so sad when a family has a child that has a disease that has so many problems with it.
I only pray that things will get better for you all in one form or another.
Just hang in there for his sake. He is such a cute little guy.
I hope that the tests will reveal something good on Wednesday.
I will keep Jaymun and your family in my thoughts and prayers.
Take care, Ginny Horneck

I just want you to know that my prayers for Jaymun and your family continue here in my home.
I am praying for your testing tomorrow and asking God to continue guiding you in the path that He wants you
to take for your precious little boy. I am so thankful that you are able to be at home as a family and
that Jaymun is holding his own and being surrounded by the ones who love him the most.
Praying for solid answers for you and for Gods peace that passes all understanding when we don't understand.
God bless you all with joy during this time, moment by moment.

Dear Kaat family
Just trust God to direct the next step.
He has given you His wisdom & Holy Spirit - so you don't have to worry about how much supplement to give Jaymun - be still & listen to the Holy Spirit guiding/leading you.
God knows the correct (exact) amount of supplement to give Jaymun - that is so exciting - read Ps 139 to remind yourself about how much (how well) our Maker knows us.
I'm praying that you will be strengthen by your union with Christ Jesus.
God bless Amanda

I read your very frustrating post about your experience last week with the spinal tap.
I am so sorry that happened to sweet Jaymun.
You all are so brave and it is just amazing what you are doing.
Please don't stop! When I read your blog, I really see God at work!

Dear Kaat Family, I can sense your frustration, all the decsions, choices,
research and most important Jaymun, your wife and other children.
As you may know there are no answers there is no book of instructions only time,
the man upstairs and your heart can guide you. There is no right or wrongs if you are
making your decisions out of love for Jaymun. He has overcome many obstacles,
put yourself in his shoes what would he want? I know at 2 this is not easy,
but it can also be pretty simple, you all are doing the best you can with what you have been given.
Stay positive, Sincerly Raven.
Mon, 8 Sep 2008 12:15 -
I can not begin to understand your frustrations with the doctors.
Speaking from my own experiences I can say that you as a parent know your child better
than any doctor ever could and that sometimes you have to take control of their medical
situation and demand tests and second opinions if you are not comfortable with the decisions
and answers you receive. And obviously by all the herbs you are giving you are seeking out
alternatives and not being satisfied with the traditional answers. Follow your instincts -
you've been right on so far!
Lots of love and prayers!

Hi! I have read your story and was amazed at all that you have been through already.
He seems like such a cute and happy little guy.
I pray with all my heart that things will get alittle better every day.
He has been through alot already. I have you all in my prayers.
It is so sad when a family has to go through an ordeal such as this and others.
Just keep your head up and pray to God for good things to happen and for new news on things that would help him along his journey. There are so many cures out now days and if only they could find one for leukimia.
May God be with you and your family and with little Jaymun.

I am so sorry to read your frustration here and all that went on. I wish I had sound answers for you but I don't. Our children are ALWAYS worth
Fighting for and this is what I see that you do best!! I would never put the medical community down for their efforts in giving the best care they
Feel they are giving. But God is in control of Jaymuns little life and I feel that as you yield your heart to Him, that He is directing your path.
I can Only imagine how scary and uncertain it all is to you, but I truly believe that Jaymuns improvements are God ordained. He holds your little boys life
In the palm of His hand, close to His heart. I am praying that He continues to lead you in the path He is using you as Jaymuns advocate and voice in
This war on this horrible disease. Praying for His peace and assurance as you continue to do what is best for your son. You have done an amazing job
So far and I know that God will bring you through. Asking Him to give you CLEAR direction in every decision you make. You and your family are loved.
Blessings and HOPE, Laurie

Wow! How frustrating for you! The doctors know so much,
but you have become very versed in other ways to battle this disease.
We encourage you to keep fighting the good fight. Don't give up. No regrets.

Dave and Family,
I can't imagine the frustration that you are feeling.
I have been reading, watching, waiting and praying along with you and your beautiful family.
I wish I would have had the knowledge to do what you are doing.
My dad died in March 08 from Pancreatic cancer and we just went by what the doctors said would happen.
I think what you are doing is courageous and beyond any words I can express.
I have a 2 year old boy and I look at him and just can't fathom what you must feel.
Keep up the good work, for you are fighting a good fight.
He is walking with you, and will show you where you should go from here.

I have been following and praying for Jaymun for a couple months now. I have rejoiced for his healing. Praise God!
I have also been in your place, keeping my son alive against all odds with diet, herbs and supplements.
I was able to get my son into remission three times with diet and herbs.
The first time, he had a WBC of 50k with 84% blasts. He did not have CNS involvement, however.
Unfortunately, due to the initial damage from the first month of chemo, now over four years back,
he suffered massive GI damage causing him to lose his colon and leaving the remaining gut obliterated.
He was also shunted. We had a lot of problems and no MD had much hope for him.
I am saying all this to LYK that there is hope, but it is hard work.
God gave us ten months after a bone marrow relapse. Our son had many good times against all odds.
In the end, it was the damage to his GI tract which took his life.
You CAN do a lot with diet and supplements. I know because we did. To date,
I am the only one 'I' know who got my son into remission without chemo. It can be done.
I think he would still be in remission today had he not lost half his gut and had so much irreversible damage to what was left.
God is the Great Physician. Seek Him first. Ask Him what to do. He will tell you where to look.
He will support you when no one else does.
Above all that, never forget that leukemia waits for no one.
Hit it hard with prayer and as many supplements as you can afford. You do your best work with diet alone, however.
All the medicines in the world, whether conventional or alternative, do nothing without a very strict cancer diet.
You have an NG, it is a blessing. Use it as if his life depends on it, because it does.
The enemy is anything which his immune system has to fight.
Our son lived out his last three months in good health because we had a breastmilk donor who gave us fresh milk.
He got the benefit of the neutrophils which kept him well and healed his gut for a season.
Jaymun has very few neuts of his own and it is those cells which kill leukemia.
Breastmilk neuts kill leukemia and aid in RBC recovery as well.
I wasn't worried about any 'bacteria' in the fresh milk because I was doing so many diet things on top of it.
We never had a problem.
You can do a lot to give him a good chance at life. I want to encourage you to keep on keeping on.
And beyond that, ENJOY each day he has quality of life. As you know, things can turn on a dime.
I pray that is not so in your case but live each day as if it is his last.
Ten years from now, you can look back and know you did everything today to plan for tomorrow.
I pray you will look back while you are holding his hand.
May God bless and lead you. Speak life into Jaymun daily in the Name of Jesus!

Keep fighting for your little guy!
Maybe you are grasping at straws but one of those 'straws' is God who is the ultimate physician.
That 'straw' is capable of all. I personally am looking forward to seeing pics of Jaymun starting school,
losing his first tooth, learning to drive, getting married, and someday having children of his own.
No, I don't know you guys but you have been in my prayers since I first found your blog a year or so ago.
Keep being his champion. Don't give up. If the lab won't do the test, find another that will.
May God continue to bless you and keep you. S Myres
