It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it. ? General Douglas MacArthur

RIP: A note from Barbara Zerr Wylie - by Mark | February 20, 2009, 07:38:04 PM
I laid my husband to rest last Thursday.   He suffered from so much pain.   Had fought Colon cancer for 14 years but it kept coming back and the last time blocked his stomach so he was unable to eat anymore.  Liquids were the only things he could have and so----he literally starved to death.   He graduated from Normandy High School and went to Missouri School of Mines and Metalurgy in Rolla, MO.   We were married June 4, 1949.  Would have been 60 years this coming June.  love and hugs to all the Zerr families.    Barbara Zerr Wylie

Rest In Peace.

We are such slackers - by kim | December 19, 2008, 03:36:18 PM
So its been almost 6 months and I have finally gotten pictures up of the boys.  Jesse has had his 18 month checkup and all is well with him.  He is currently cutting his 4th molar, so hes been a pain.  He has the front four in on the top and bottom, and 4 molars, but is missing the 2 between the front teeth and the molars on both sides and the top and bottom.  Guess he decided he needed those molars in so he could chew his food better..Wink
He is weighing in at 24lb and 13oz, and is 31inches long.  Short and stocky it looks like..Wink 
Wyatt is LOVING preschool.  He potty trained pretty quick, even though we had some setbacks, but its all good now.  Bribery works wonders it would seem with my son.  He really enjoys going to preschool, and i enjoy easy nap time for Jesse. 
Mark is keeping really busy with Rockwell.  He occasionally has to travel to Florida with his job.  Even though he says he misses us, I'm sure its not so bad having a hotel room right off the beach, and fresh seafood every night for dinner..Wink
We finally got family pictures taken.  It did not turn out quite as well as i had hoped but it was hard keeping the boys on track and trying to keep focused on the photographer at the same time.  Hopefully next time it will go a bit smoother.
Christmas is almost here and still we do not have our cards mailed out.  I hope to get them out before christmas actually gets here but some may get it later then that. 
Hope everyone has a lovely holiday season.

Me - by kim | September 16, 2007, 12:13:10 PM
Well I am feeling better as the days progress.  The little drug cocktail they have me on in the mornings tends to kick my butt, but after a couple hours I am up and going.  Mom was here all week helping with the kids and stuff while I was recovering and resting.  We'll be using a babysitter next week till I am up and running and able to manage our lil boys.  Hopefully after next week I'll be running at normal capacity.  I still get tired if I do too much, so I have to take it easy.  At times I feel totally fine, then get kicked on my butt and tired from doing too much.  The diagnosis btw was um we really don't know exactly what was wrong with you.  It was either some form of colitis, chrone's disease or irritable bowel disease.  Apparently if/when it happens again they will build a medical file on me to figure out what my problem is.  yippee.
I just put a few newer pics of the kids up on the website.  We really need to find the battery charger for our camera.

Kim is coming home! - by Mark | September 07, 2007, 01:41:27 PM
Kim is going to be discharged this afternoon!  Hooray!!!

She will be on some pretty heavy meds for an indeterminate amount of time...but she is coming home.  Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes.  Our family really appreciated it.

UPDATE:  Kim is home and sleeping in our bed.  She has a huge quantity of drugs sitting on our dresser.  Hopefully she will recover quickly.  She will likely have many follow ups as the next few weeks go by....I will be sure to keep everyone updated.

Hello! - by kim | September 05, 2007, 08:18:39 PM
Hello people!

So here I am with my hospital laptop.  Apparently you have to get pretty sick to get a vacation from the kids. Wink

Most of the test results come back tomorrow, but I'll be in here till Friday.  Hopefully no longer then that, but I'll probably still be all sorts of tired.  Kinda like getting a c section all over again! Only no open woulds ... on the outside anyway.  Thankfully my grandparents are up this week, but they have to leave on Friday.  Mom is going to be coming down Friday and staying till Monday unless she can get some kind of medical leave act paperwork through for her to be able to use her sick leave.

I am a human freaking pin cushion here.  I finally got to take a shower, wash my hair, and got out all squeekie clean only to find out that my IV got messed up and they had to pull it out.  Then the chick reinserting stuck me 5 times, before she finally got it in working on the 6th attempt. I was damn near in tears.  I have track lines from the blood work.  Totally a mess.  But they seem to think I am getting better.  I do feel better then when Mark brought me in on Monday.

I should be getting most of the test results back tomorrow.  This should dictate how much longer I will be in here and how longish my recovery will be.

Mark has been great through this all, and I am thankful that our family is here to help in our time of need.

Bike Ride - by Mark | June 25, 2006, 07:14:50 PM
We took Wyatt on his first bike ride today.  It was a short couple of miles through the park to a playground and then back.  The weather was beautiful and Wyatt seemed to enjoy the experience.  I think we will try to make this a regular thing on weekends with nice weather.   I forgot to bring the camera, so no pictures this time.  I have a very busy schedule at work this week, so I am looking forward to my short vacation starting this Friday.  We are heading to Siren, WI for Independence Day next weekend to visit Granny Carolyn.

Beers with Family - by Mark | May 16, 2006, 07:10:33 PM
I am in Washington DC this week for work.  The only benefit of being away from home, my loving wife, and favorite little boy is that I get to have dinner and beers with my Dad and brother tomorrow night.  Because we all live so far apart...these events happen rarely (if never).  It should be a good time.

Zerr's in the news - by Mark | June 18, 2005, 08:29:56 PM
Here are some more Zerr's who have made the news.

Jack Zerr, vice president of the MMA program for Boeing discusses design changes of the U.S. Navy's P-8A Multi-mission Maritime Aircraft (MMA).

"It's indicative of the teamwork developed between the Navy and our industry team that we were able to identify a way to enhance the 737's performance in the maritime patrol environment," said Jack Zerr, vice president of the MMA program for Boeing.

I think this article is referring to my Uncle Bob from Kansas City, MO. I never heard this story before, but it does not surprise me that Uncle Bob would be able to help this young man through a very difficult time.

Act three of McPhillips' life begins Feb. 19, 1991, in an Independence, Mo., hospital chapel - at 12:30 p.m. The spiritual counselor, Bob Zerr, began reading the Bible to him, while McPhillips was still in the midst of his recovery.

"I had no where else to go but up," he said. When Zerr started reading, McPhillips said he felt himself open up. "It felt so good. He read for three and one-half hours."

Craig Zerr commenting on a pilot program undertaken with his school children to teach them about philanthropy.

"This has been a great experience for the kids and for everyone involved," said Earl Principal Craig Zerr. "The kids have learned so much, and they remember this and use what they have learned for the rest of their lives. I am proud of them, especially of their sincerity to help others."

Zerr's in the news - by Mark | June 16, 2005, 08:41:00 PM
Here is something I plan to do more regularly. I will try to post a weekly update of Zerr's that make the news.

Doug Zerr addresses the 2005 graduating class of K-State at Salina.

Doug Zerr, student body president at K-State at Salina, told his peers in a student address that life is more about the journey than the destination.

And the journey through college has certainly been a memorable one.

There have been some good times and “some we’d like to forget,” but all those experience made the journey what it was, Zerr said.

“Good luck and thanks for the memories,” he told the May 2005 graduating class.

Katie Zerr wins a scholarship from Toyota, for study at a four-year college or university starting in the fall of 2005.

The Toyota Community Scholars program is administered by Educational Testing Services in Princeton, N.J. The 12 national winners ($20,000 each) and 88 regional winners ($10,000 each) were selected by a panel of college and university admissions officials from across the U.S.

Rudy Zerr discusses his thoughts on our new Pope.

Zerr, like other local German-Americans, said, "there's a certain pride" in seeing the 78-year-old Ratzinger elected to the papacy.
- Annoying registration required.

A Zerr family enjoys their visit to Bermuda.

Jimmy and Michelle Zerr and their children Tyler, 13, and Carley, 11, have fallen in love with Bermuda. They arrived on Tuesday on the Norwegian Crown and leave today, Friday.

Community Police Officer Darlene Zerr discusses gang graffiti and other problems with local residents.

"It's kind of hard to catch them in the act," Zerr told the neighbors.

She and Easter said it is difficult to remove graffiti as fast as police would like, partly because of limited staffing, partly because of the time it takes to get waivers from property owners allowing city workers to get rid of the offensive symbols. An effort is under way to streamline the process.

Residents in the Seattle, Washington area come to the aid of young Kailyn Zerr, whose mom Melanie could not afford a $900 oxygen monitor.

Within seconds of our broadcast, KOMO viewers started calling us and offering their help. I personally got 23 emails - all willing to help pay the $900 for the machine.

"Instantly my mailbox is full of 30 to 40 emails! Within minutes," laughed Zerr as she told us about the response.

Two viewers tracked down Melanie and called her. A woman showed up at her house with a check, and an anonymous man sent an email, then sent her the money.
There is also a video of the segment the local news channel did about the Zerr family.
