After spending a few hours this morning talking with Tricia, she's spent much of the rest of the day sleeping. She's in good spirits, even in her current situation, which is incredibly encouraging to me.
Gwyneth continues to be the miracle that she is.
To answer a good question: most CF patients must receive a complete double lung transplant. There are exceptions, but not in cases like Tricia's.
To answer another good question: I'll be blogging soon about how I am praying for Tricia's future donor and the donor's family. In the meantime, rent the movie, "Return To Me", a sweet love story revolving around a heart transplant (one of our favorites).
I received a phone call from my dad this afternoon that a local OBX organization gave him a check for $5000 for Tricia's Trust Fund. How awesome is that!
I received the following email a few hours ago from the person in charge of printing off the ECards for DUMC.
"Hope all is well...sorry we just don't have the resources to print all of these."
The attachment included over 150 new ECards!
