Thank you for your updates and pictures Little Rose it´s precious,Lu - RJ
That last pic is a WINNER! Still praying God's will be done.
I am a long time reader and just had to post tonight. I was so excited to see the news that Tricia went to surgery. I am praying for all of you. I feel like I know your family, I check on you daily (sometimes more than once) to get updates. The difference in Gwyneth is just amazing. She is looking so much bigger and stronger. I can tell she is a little fighter. I'll be checking back in the AM and praying for you all.
Oops!! I meant a SENSE of peace! Boy, I need to go to bed!!
Isn't blogging such a blessing? Look at all of these people God will hear praying for you! Precious photos! She is so cute. I love her stylin' onsie!

The bottom pic is so cute. You can tell she's getting bigger and better.
I'm so glad to see you have someone special to keep you occupied while you wait. She's adorable.Praying hard for all of you.
Glad you had such great company during this long wait!
here's a thought to break the tension: you/someone else:go get some dr pepper and pop rocks.magic.
Been following your blog for some time ... but this is my first comment. Wonderful photos of Gwyneth (my favorite is also the last one). No doubt she is a miracle from our wonderful God! You're are all in my thoughts and prayers. May God be with you all including the doctors, hospital staff and the family who is mourning the loss of a loved one. Hugs from Buffalo NY! Pep
Adorable pics. Before my 11-year-old daughter went to bed, I told her the news about Tricia's surgery and asked her to pray. (She loves looking at "your girls" on the blog all the time.) She said she will be praying for her, asked some pretty serious questions, then looked at me and said, "Mom, if I should ever die, please give my organs to someone who needs them." I assured her that I would honor her request. Praying in Louisiana
wow, she is absolutely gorgeous!! hang in there, tricia will be done soon with a new pair of lungs...woohoo...
Thanks for sharing the beautiful pictures - love them all and especially IMG_4928wtmk.jpg
I just love how she's looking up at you in the first picture!! By her blurry hands, it looks like she is really starting to wiggle and move--what a little sweetie. Praying for your precious Tricia tonight before I turn in for bed. Blessings to you all.
Looks like she is a daddy's girl and daddy is wrapped around her tiny pinky. Beautiful and touching pictures!
Just had to check in one more time before bed. Great photos. Gwyneth is looking more hearty each time I see a new picture. Just beautiful. Kathy (mom to the princesses in disguise)
Oh gosh ...those pictures are wonderful!! Little Gwyneth Rose looking up at Daddy, that big yawn, both of you gazing at each other, and those big beautiful eyes looking right at the camera ... they're all precious!Praying along with thousands of others for Tricia and all of you. I hope you, your parents & Tricia's parents can get a little rest tonight. Thank you, God, for watching over Tricia and her doctors & nurses.
It must feel so good for you to hold baby Gwenyth right now.Stacy :-)
Oh my word, that last picture of Gwyneth is SO sweet!!
Beautiful! We are praying for your mommy and all of you right now.
I think I'm seeing a much welcomed double chin! And, I mean on Gwyneth. And, it looks like she's waving to Mom in the last picture. What a wonderful world.
Those pictures are too cute and mommy will love them. Gwyneth is so different. She is really getting a personality. It is like she is getting to really act like a baby now. Before, she was having to use most all of her energy to grow what should have grown inside. Now, she is going to show what she can do. I really think she is going to have a huge sense of humor like her daddy and be beautiful on the inside and out like mommy. This is still amazing.
And I should have added that I just checked in again before doing some evening chores. Still praying and looking forward to your update. God's Peace!Stacy :-)
This is my first time to post to a Blog.. and yours is well deserved! I am so grateful to God that I decided to check in on your family before I went to bed. I will be praying all night for your family. Our God is a GOD of miracles. Remember that we must only have the faith of a mustard seed.. have you ever seen a mustard seed? May God hold you all in the palm of his hand... In Christ! JudyP.S. the last picture is the best picture yet... God Bless!
She's so incredibly beautiful!
AWWWWWWW! Rest well little one.
Nate, I have just read your entire blog today. It is 12:41am EST and I guess that means that Tricia is still in surgery. Your entire family is in my thoughts and prayers. I sincerely hope all goes well. Also, your daughter is divine!
Beautiful! Such personality in that last photo.
Oh my goodness, these are SO precious!!! Wait until Mommy wakes up, she will LOVE these!
I love the pictures. They are wonderful to see. I'm so glad you can hold her now. Prayers headed your way. Prayers of those that love the Lord have power.
that last picture is so sweet. isn't it sooo wonderful whenever you get to hold her. i remember those days with my girls.
oh my gosh,just look at her! That bottom picture is way cute.Don't think any of us will be sleeping much tonite, I am way too keyed up looking forward to the next post.sweet little Gwyneth, sleep well,praying with joy and praise in calij
that bottom pic is so amazing, you should frame it.well, i dont post comments ever cuz i know you already get so many but i have been so ''glued to'' and enthralled with your story and as i sit here with tears in my eyes i couldn't resist. you guys are such an amazing and lovely family. but more than anything you are christians and your faith and love for christ is so apparent and amazing. thank you for puting yourselves out there to touch so many peoples lives. i pray for everyone involved in what is happening right now and hope that you can remain calm as you wait to hear. i know you know but sometimes we all need reminding, so...know that god's hands are with her and the doctors right now and his love will carry you all through this. thank you again for sharing.johanna
The first picture should be captioned, "Whoa dude...where did all your hair go?!"The last one is a classic "waiting" pose. TOO CUTE!!!Praying!!
That last picture is the best! you two look like you are so patiently waiting! SHe has beautiful eyes.
What a beautiful miracle gwenyth is! I have been prraying for your family and will continue to do so, i started reading your blog when i was pregnant, my son was born 5 weeks early and having watched your little miracle grow being born so early gave me such a peace. I am praying for Tricia and your family throughout the night as I get up for feedings. God be with you.~Kait
beautiful father daughter pictures!! You are all in my prayers:) God is so good
oh my, that last picture....be still my heart....
I just checked in. Been praying all day for Tricia's new lungs!! So glad it's a go. What a wonderful way to end my day and my Husband's it was his birthday today. We'll keep on praying along with just about the entire world!!1 Praise God!
Totally loving the bottom photo! So, so precious. Still praying in PA and posting the same request on my blog!
She is getting prettier every day Nate. What a blessing to spend time with her while her mommy gets her new lungs. Praying for the Lord to guide each and every hand that touches Tricia tonight. He will bring her through.Love, Laurie in Ca.
Well, looks like I will be keeping vigil with you, Nate. I simply am unable to sleep. I have a feeling I may not be alone out here in the blogosphere. Speaking for myself, I am somewhat surprised at the depth of feeling and love for your family. We'll likely never meet in person, but it is beyond my words to explain. Anyhoo, too bad some of us out here can't share a cup of coffee together while we wait and pray for Tricia and your whole family. Her parents must be so excited! Again, rmmbr you all are wrapped in our love and prayers.Jamie in Texas
Just wanted to add our prayers to your list! Love and baby cuddles to you guys! Those pics are beautiful!
She's getting soooo big! Look at that pretty girl!Continuing to pray!
That last picture is so poignant. I am continuing to pray for you and Tricia and all involved in her surgery. May God infuse His strength, wisdom and skill into the doctors operating on your beautiful wife. May she soon be breathing easily, without lung pain, and may you all be blessed to go home together with happy hearts and a new ability to live the dreams you have dreamed together with Gwyneth.
Oh so sweet nathan! Thank you!And I don't think I'll sleep much tonight. We're up with you!
these are precious...
what a perfect place to wait... the pictures are beautiful! scontinued prayers.
the last pic is my fav of all time... this child so new so small has changed many people!!She is saying "Gosh daddy... can't they just hurry up, i want my mommy too" thanks for blessing my life~Kk
Gorgeous photos of a gorgeous baby. Waiting right along with her (and the whole WORLD!!). Prayers continuing...

I'll be praying for your family tonight. I just checked in and was surprised to see that Tricia is in surgery! Wow. God is good. Everything in his time! What an awesome birthday present!!Oh..btw, that bottom pic is just gorgeous. It even choked me up a little. *hugs*
Just eanted to say that you have the most beautiful little girl!! I love the picture of her looking up a Daddy and the last one shows just hoe cute she is! I am praying for Tricia and will waiting on an update!
She looks like a such a big girl! We'll be praying for your family as well as the donor's tonight.
That last picture is just awesome - you can tell that she is already Daddy's little girl!
Praying for Tricia and for the surgeons as they work through the night. And, wow, Gwyneth looks beautiful! I loved your gratitude for what God has done, is doing and will do...He is faithful, He is good. He does what He says He will do and He is with you every step of the way.
Beautiful pictures the last one is my favorite - so much personality! Praying for Tricia and you as you await the news.
I dropped to my knees as soon as I read your posts tonight. You and Tricia deserve all the happiness God can send. Baby Girl and Mama are on track to come home together.
about 4 hours in now. About halfway there for Tricia's new lungs. What a miracle. I was wondering as I was thinking and praying. Wonder has anyone ever had so many people, so many places in the US and the world praying for them while they were in surgery. bet not! We are gathered and we are praying. If God had a phone system, all circuits would be busy! Fortunatley he has no such limitations! God Bless everyone!!Jamie in Texas
Aww,, these are my new fav. photos, they are great. I am praying here in Alabama, I know you said it would be a wile, but I can't sleep now. LOL
Oh, my, that in that bottom pic she looks like Tricia! First time I've seen a real resemblance!
wow, she looks amazing. Thanks for sharing the cute pictures.
You're not alone tonight!
The last picture is my favorite! Praying for you and Gwyneth as you wait to hear more news from the OR.Hugs from El Paso,Karla
Still up and praying. We are going to bed soon; but as we wake; Tricia will be on our hearts.
BEAUTIFUL. that last picture made my heart jump to my throat...she is amazing! love susannapraying here in mexico!!!!
Those are some mighty pretty eyes she's got! I'm glad you have "Little Tricia" to hold onto during this night, and your family is able to be there with you.Those eyes are intensely beautiful!
I wanted to check in before going to bed. I'm praying for Tricia, the Dr.s and you. Gwyneth is seriously getting prettier by the day. LOVE that last picture. Just lovely.May God Bless you tonight.
I'm praying for your family. Your daughter is beautiful.
Those pics are just incredible...too precious for words!! The first and last are my favorites.
beautiful pictures, beautiful baby girl! know Mommy and Daddy are so proud! Praying,,,jen in al
I am going to attempt to get to bed, but I am seriously doubting I will be able to sleep! I am praying constantly for Tricia's surgery and for you all! My 9 year old cried, she was so happy for Tricia to get new lungs! We stayed in her bed at her bedtime praying and sharing scripture. She asked a lot of good questions about transplants and was amazed at how it all can work! She also figured out the donor's role in the process, and was instantly touched by it to the point that she told me right away that if anything bad ever happened to her and she died, she would want to donate her organs so that other people could live. I am amazed at the Spirit of the Lord touching so many hearts in such a personal way through your story. Blessings,Jen
You just keep feeding the masses! Love the pics! The eyes tell it all....love, love and more love.
Sweet Baby Gwyneth. You are a little fighter, just like your Mom. What an amazing legacy your family will leave. Thank you for letting us share in your daily miracles. We are lifting up your family tonight and thanking God for your Mommy's new lungs.
Long-time reader, first-time poster praying for you all (or I should say "y'all". blessings to you!
She is so stinking cute! Such great pictures of daddy and his girl!

That last picture is so unbelievably beautiful!!! I have to say that in that picture she certainly looks like she has her mommy's eyes. Gosh she is getting so much bigger and cuter every day!! Still praying for Tricia!!!
I love the big eyes in the last picture :D
Precious! I just cannot get over how adorable she is! I am so blessed to watch your little princess grow!
I have to be honest and say that when I got on to see if you had updated, I saw the pictures of you and Gwyneth, and bawled my eyes out! That little girl has captured my heart...I can only imagine how profoundly she has captured yours!The last picture, where she has her little hand on her head...Priceless!Nate, we are praying!
She is cute as always! Nate, I'm praying for you guys. Everything will be fine, I just know it!

That pacifier picture is priceless! Nate, do yourself a favor, and when Gwyneth goes home, get about nine of those things! We had the ones that are one size up (green instead of purple), and we called them "the Magic", for good reason!She looks SO grown-up in tha tlast shot. And I think she has Tricia's eyes, or at least her "gaze"...what do you all think?Still up praying in Escondido, CA. We love you!
5 hours in now. I have decided that a bunch of us have either grown to love and care for y'all very much OR we are an insane group that feel we must NOT leave our computers til we know Tricia is out of surgery!! hmmm-what do y think Nate?? Nut jobs or not? ;) Either way, still praying for all of you. God Bless.Jamie in Texas
What a darling baby she is~ she looks so much like your wife. Hope you get your girls home soon.Continued prayers~
LOL I keep hitting refresh... I feel like I am stalking you.............
Got up to check in and can't believe how blessed I was to see the amazing pics of you and Gwyneth. She is too precious for words. Still praying in Michigan!!!
Gwyneth is already looking up to her daddy. :)Just wanted to check in on you and send you some support prayer from Florida.God Bless you Nate and keep the Faith.
Hi Nate-I've posted before that my family and I are in Germany with a 7 hour time difference. I was up and down all night checking the blog and praying for you guys. I guess I too was anxious for God's Will to be fulfilled, in that Trica WOULD recieve her new set of lungs. When I woke just around 5:13 a.m. to see the Blog that Tricia had gone into surgery I was so excitied I could't even go back to sleep. I shouted "To God Be the Glory" and woke my 19 month old son up. I then proceeded to tell him how good our God is and that baby Gwyneth's mommy (we always look at the photos together and talk to Jesus about "Baby") was going to be getting her new lungs and he just smiled through sleepy eyes. Praying for you and your girls ALL DAY!
her face changes every day! you look like you're really getting the hang of this daddy thing :)
Nate I LOVE LOVE LOVE that last picture! It sure captures everything into one little photo. Frame this one it is a winner!
So very precious! :)
I can't even believe this happened on your b-day that is so awesome. I know I don't know you guys but I feel like I do because you tell so much about yourself and your jouney. I can't wait for your next post I will be praying for you and telling your good news to those I asked to pray for you too.
It looks like *someone* enjoyed her midnight visit with Daddy. She is so precious!Continuing to pray for Tricia!

Gosh, I just love these gorgeous photos of you and Gwyn!! Love the way she looked up at you... (as if she's thinking, "Hey, Daddy, what are you doing with us?")... and the last photo (maybe even the one with her yawning) is like she almost rolls her eyes, has a slight grin, and with her hand on her forehead (thinking, "oh, Daddy just loves to take a zillion of photos of us!! It can be tiring but I like it at the same time!") ;-)These two photos are my favorite especially the last one!! Thanks for sharing! Gwyn looks fabulous and glad she is doing well!Marissa :-)

Beautiful... she really looks like she is growing... I love them all, looking at daddy, tired girl, snuggles, and those eyes in the last one... just want to smother her in kisses
That picture of you and Gwyneth with her hand on her forehead and big ole eyes is my new favorite. My goodness, what a little sugar plum!

Okay, you got me. I've been a lurker but the last picture on this post convinced me to post. It's an amazing picture. WOW! I'm praying for you and both your girls. God bless!
I love the photos of you and Gwyneth. She is developing such personality, especially considering her age! :) She is beautiful. :)
You have a beautiful child there. As well as a beautiful wife. Thanks so much for sharing your story with us. It has been a blessing to me to read up on things.MY husband has CF, but he decided he would never have a transplant. He also wishes to be DNR. Not the easiest thing to come to terms with, but we don't have children, so there is a big difference.I hope you and Tricia live to a wonderful old age to see Gwenneth's children and grandchildren play and laugh in your home.Again, thanks so much for sharing!
Prayers for both of your beauitful girls!
