What wonderful news Nate! I haven't posted for a bit, but we've been checking in several times a day, and thinking of you and praying for you all the time. We're so delighted that Tricia has been listed... here's hoping she gets those new lungs soon, and can finally have a cuddle with her beautiful little girl!
Take care xx

Congratulations on the listing and activation. That is truly great news. Also, thank you for sharing your story. It is inspirational to so many people that you will never know.

I cared for a family member with ESRD , and I can relate to being in the hospital for days, weeks....and months. It is a tough and trying time. Hang in there.

Best wishes and I look forward to the day that Tricia gets a new set of lungs and Gweneth goes home!!

Prayers go out to the possible donor family at this time. It must be an extremely heartwrenching time for all of you,knowing that for Tricia to benefit, someone else must die. My heart goes out to all involved.

Oh thank you GOD!

Please, let's pray just as hard for that donor and their family as we do for Tricia and Nate and Gwen.

Praise the Lord, and pass the Kleenex..

(p.s. This is a little strange, but I wasn't going to check the blog again this afternoon since Nate said he was taking a break, and I swear that while looking at my bookmarks I heard a voice say, "Check it. Tricia's been listed." I have goosebumps.)

One more to add to the rest: Yay, Woohoo, Praise God, and all the rest. Congratulations and blessings to you all.

There is NO scheduled surgery, you guys. She is listed and activated which means she is on the list to recieve a new set of lungs when they come available.
I, for one, am in constant prayer now for the potential donor, their loved ones!
Praying, Nate and Tricia, for a "perfect" match to come along soon.
Keep on fighting!!!!

Is baby Gwyneth on the list to get new lungs too? Was just wondering if she was too little?

TaylorJohns said...

My husband travels a ton and has a bunch of hotel points (enough for a 2 month stay or so),that we would be willing to transfer to you if that would help you stay near Tricia for her surgery. Let us know if that is something you could use, if not we would like to donate some funds for your use! Praying for Tricia's surgery!

I have this feeling it will happen this month! Praying for donor family. Feels strange praying for someone else to die, ugggh is that wrong? Anyway, hope Tricia is gaining weight and getting stronger to prepare herself for this surgery. How is little Gwyneth doing today? Are her lungs any better?
