On the Rise

I write this to tell you the sickness Kay Kay had has come and gone...gone on to her mother who was over here helping out while Kay was sick! So now pray for Mary Ann...


Jayk is doing better...his ear is bothering him some but the doctor says things are fine for now...just pray that the ear infection stays away.


Me (dad) just got back from a two day retreat at Carolina Creek where I spoke to Fort Bend Baptist Academy's senior class. It was a great time (not long enough) but pray for those seniors because I believe there are several of them that walk with Jesus and want see things happen there at their high school. Pray for David Hook & Todd Prince, Principal & Vice Principal as they try to lead that school towards Jesus!

A Prayer From Daddy for Mom & Jayk

To those of you out there that would feel sorry for a brother...Our little guy Jayk started getting sick a week ago tonight (Thursday)...following him getting a bit sick with a cold we had a full day at Roger's swearing in service to become a Harris County Criminal Court Judge...so we were gone all day long on Friday...Jayk had been doing the usual thing in regards to the cold (runny nose, cranky, tired but can't sleep)...we on Sunday evening Kay heard him crying so we went to check him out and he and thrown up all over himself and his bed...so we got him out of bed and cleaned up...and Kay began to rock him and love him back to sleep...only for him to want me...so I grabbed and was holding on to him when he was coughing...then his cough turned into throwing up right down my v-neck white t shirt...yes I did say "in" my shirt...right over the collar against my chest! Yes I really feel like a great dad! So we got him down and he slept the rest of the night...so we thought he was doing better to which last night (Wednesday)...we were awakened with vomit everywhere...in hair, all over arms, blankets and even between his eyes. So we jumped in the tub at 11:50 at night...after getting him cleaned up and I rocking him...he prefered his mother instead...to which about 15 seconds after he went to her he throw up in...yes I said "in" her shirt...to which she passed him back to me and he threw up about 3 more times on his pottery barn rug in his room...it is the worst holding your little guy and his whole body is convulging as he throws up back logged mucus. So we cleaned him up and he was out...as this took place Kay crawled into the bed that we have in Jayk's room to be close and listen for any other explosions...so about 2 a.m. this morning Kay came in and woke me up so I could trade her spots because she wasn't feeling good...well to my surprise since I was in Jayk's room sleeping...Kay Kay, my sweet super wife, was sick with something (virus or food poisioning) that was not being nice to her...so as the morning arrived (she had been a while)...I became Mr. Mom today...I usually share most duties in the morning with getting Jayk, changing his diaper, holding him while Kay Kay gets his food together, feeds him, etc...well today it was all me! Wow am I thankful for my wife. I was way thankful before this but even more now. So she was quarantened (sp??) to the bedroom all day while I took care of Jayk...so I got him ready because he had a doctors appointment today...so I took him to the doctor (had an intern roll with me but conversation.) while Mary Ann (Kay's mom) came over to help with her. So after I arrived home with Jayk (way later than we should have but you all know how doctor's office go..especially before school starts next week.) So I dropped Jayk off and headed to the store to get a few things (Sprite for mom, saline for Jayk, etc...)...well when I went to get in the car I noticed a screw was coming out of my rear drivers side tire...so I called Kay and Mary Ann and told them I was heading to Costco to get it fixed...well when I got there they couldn't fix the tire because the tire was worn out (because of the dealer that I get it serviced with...long story I won't share)...so I just couldn't get one tire replaced I had to get them all replaced since we own a 4 wheel drive...so after 3 hours there and $750 dollars later...I finally got home...played with Jayk...loved on Jayk...loved on Mom and let Mary Ann go home...so know Jayk is down, Kay is down, and I am asking all of you who pray to ask Jesus to heal this infirmery I am running.


Kay & one of her friends made these shirts that say "surrender" on the front of them several summers ago...and on the back "EVERYTHING...Rom. 13:12)...so I purposelly put this shirt on tonight (because you aren't supposed to wear it unless you believe and trust these things to happen. So I dug through the drawer to find it and told Jesus "I SURRENDER..." So pray with me or at least hurt with a brother! Jerrell

Amazing...my sweet little guy is 8 months old today...he is now waving bye bye, trying to say mama and daddy, clapping, almost crawling and going on his first bike ride...He is wonderful...Thank you Jesus for our sweet little guy...thank you for his smile, his sweet noises, his giggles, his tough days, good days...just him Lord thank your for him...His mom and dad love him more than words can express...

First Day at Gymboree...

It was so fun today...we went to Gymboree for the first time...I went last week and checked out all the specifics and registered for a free class that we did today...Jayk LOVED it...he jumped around forever and wouldn't sit still, I loved seeing his little personality...he kept wanting to touch every other child there and give them a hug...he would talk when the teacher was talking and just smile from ear to ear...I loved it...the one thing that was hard is little guy is teething with 4 teeth coming in at the same time and he just kept spitting up and drooling everywhere...so that was a little awkward, but I was ok with it because he was so happy...So before we left we signed up for 5 more times...I am sure I will have more stories to tell...
