ABC 11 at 6:00PM

Our TV story with Barbara Gibbs is airing tonight (March 24) during the local ABC 11 6:00 News broadcast. (See This Post for the back story)

I'm hoping that the piece will be up on their website as well.


Just remember, the camera adds 10 lbs, yellow's not my color, and I was having a bad hair day that day...haha.

Ooh - how exciting Nate! I hope there will be a link so those of us overseas can watch later!
We went on live national TV here in the UK to talk about our two sons and their medical conditions (our first son, Will, was diagnosed with a lethal genetic condition at 12 weeks gestation, but we carried him to term and wouldn't have missed the 15 minutes we were able to spend with him; and our second son, Charlie has an incurable heart condition) - anyway, very nervewracking experience, Charlie (then about 18months old) spent the entire time dismantling the set, and forget the camera adding 10lbs - more like 25lbs I reckon! Hope we get to see your TV debut! Lots of love to all three of you. XX

Praying that God blesses this segment so that more people can learn about CF and Organ donation. Hope you all are having a good day. I prayed for you this morning on the way to work.

I too am concerned with Gwyneth's weight. Are they going to do metabolic testing on her? My oldest son was failure to thrive, they would gavage him every 3 hours with a mixture of breast milk and high calorie formula till he started getting full, 32 oz a day. They worried about bilery atresia, and pancreas problems. I pray they can fild a solution and fatten her up

I read the article in the N&O yesterday. It was a great article. I can't wait to see the piece on you tonight. Take Care

Kim said...

We'll check it out!

Baby Leino said...

Awesome! We have the DVR set & ready to go!

Donna said...

But the camera didn't add 10 pounds to Trisha? You both look marvelous:)
Congratulations, you deserve the media attention. I'm praying for Gwyneth to gain weight, maybe you should post a graph and plot her daily weight in grams. I have 10 pounds I'd like to share with her!

EXCUSES EXCUSES!!!

I'm continuously praying for you all!!

Will definitely be watching for your segment...looking forward to it.

I'm very excited about the press coverage you are getting, it can only do good.

I am so thankful to you and your blog Nathan...I started reading your blog about 2 months ago. I was interested in what you were going through not only because it's a heartfelt and inspiring story but because I too have a cousin who has CF and since I started reading your blog, it's made me think of her and want to get back in touch with her (our families just stopped talking). I have just recently called her and now I am joining her Great Strides team and hope to help her along as much as I can.

Thanks so much for the inspiration!

Hugs to you and your family!

Here's hoping we who aren't "local" can see the interview online!!

Camera adds 10 lbs? I must be walking around with at least 5 cameras following my every move!! LOL

You both look phenomenal, especially with all of the time you've had to spend in the hospital.

Melissa Dovel said...

lol- your a funny guy Nate! I dont see the girls having the same issues:) jk- you all look great & we will all find a way to see your story!

Blessings,
Melissa

Tricia's beauty makes up for what the camera adds ;-)

kari said...

So, exactly how many cameras did they have on you, Nate? lol JUST KIDDING!

I hope they put it online! We want to see it too!

We saw the photos of your sister and her husband and thought it was you in a dark wig and Tricia!

Praying for Gwyneth to gain some weight. Are they giving her lots of breastmilk? Have they said why they think she's not gaining? I wish I had some great advice for what to do for her, but prayers will do more than advice any day!

Our prayers and love to you all!

Nathan: I went on the ABC 11 website and read the article. It was so beautiful. I tried to leave a comment about it on their website but I donot know if they will publish it. If not I will try it again later. Praying that this news piece will open peoples eyes regarding organ donations

holly marie said...

I am excited to know if they will have it on their website, I would love to see it! My friend Katrina (in Carson City NV) sent me a link to your blog, and like her, I am hooked. I pray often for you and your family. Your story moves me and helps strengthen my faith.

You guys look great and I know you are all going to make it through this. My prayers for God's strength to you to help you are heartfelt.

nicole said...

oooo...it was so awesome to watch you guys on tv! i don't think those news anchors were prepared for the power that is in your story! they seemed to be left speechless when they were supposed to transition to the weather. :) we continue to lift you all up in prayer, and tonight we will include all of the many new readers.

Faith said...

WOW. I actually think that is the best hair day you've had in a while. I like it better that way than when it is slicked back. ANYWAYS...not that it matters (only Tricia's opinion matters!) but I think it looks good. BTW, what kind of *Nate hair* does Tricia like?

Chrissy said...

I really wish I would have seen it. I missed it...as we were out all day making funeral arrangements for our 5 day old miracle baby girl. I thought of you guy so often last week as I entered and exited the NICU and saw the tiny babies in similar size to Gwyneth. What a blessing she has been and a little miracle at that.

Trisha looks beautiful! I'm so glad your story is being told.
