Report

First, Gwyneth weighs 8 lbs 9 oz! That is, by far, the most weight she's gained in such a short amount of time...her new diet is definitely working!

Tricia's chemo didn't get started until mid-afternoon, and, although it only lasted a few hours (which is much shorter than the first round), she was not able to go to her transplant clinic, so we really don't know anything about her status. Fortunately, Tricia did not experience any side effects during the treatment.

They're on their way home now, and should arrive around 10 tonight. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers today!

Awesome on the weight gain! And cute new pictures, too. I'm sure getting the chemo is made easier by being able to hold Gwyneth!

Way to go Gwyneth!!! She is gettng to be such a big girl!!! Praying safe travel for your girls this evening and that Tricia will continue to not have any side effect the next few days and will get well rested.

Rebecca said...

I'd been hoping for an update before I went to bed... something to thank God for in my bedtime prayers, for sure! :)

Awesome for Gwyneth. I'm sorry Tricia didn't get to have her clinic visit, but GLAD she didn't have any trouble during her treatment.

Way to grow Gwyneth! So happy to hear that her new diet is getting her weight up. Pretty soon she'll be a chubby little bugger.

It's great to hear that Tricia didn't notice any side effects. I hope it continues that way.

Have a wonderful evening with your girls!

You go, Gwyneth! Way to eat! Nate, you and Tricia are doing a GREAT job with that sweet baby girl. Praying for Tricia often (and the rest of you, too).

Sarah said...

Holy Cow!!! I will definitely be thanking somebody in my bedtime prayers for that amazing news tonight. Who knew she could gain so much weight in such a short time? I was POSITIVE it couldn't be much over 8 pounds - I'm glad I was wrong!

Jane-Jane said...

praise God for good weight gain and for no side effects for Tricia.

safe travels girls!

Twinkletoes said...

Way To Grow GWYNETH! God is certainly watching out for your family... So glad Tricia's chemo went well. Hopefully all the tx news is great when she gets to that appointment!!

Just so you know, I keep a daily prayer journal, and pray for your family specifically once a week!

Sonia said...

So glad she is doing so well and gaining weight. I pray things continue to go well for Tricia and the chemo isn't too bad for her. My prayers are with you.

Emily said...

A little off-topic but I see you've reached over 6 million hits. Pretty staggering, huh?

Good for you!

Scott said...

Thank the Lord for the progress! We are praying.

I've been following your story since a day or 2 before Gwyn's birth and have never commented. Today, however, I feel compelled. My youngest daughter (2 years) was born at 9 lbs. 9oz. Unbelievable that Gwyn is still smaller than some newborns! Pictures make it difficult to see just how tiny she is, she looks like her age, in pictures anyways! I can't imagine how tiny she is in real life! You are truly blessed...(as if you didn't already know that!)

Mary said...

Thanks for the updates. Glad to hear Tricia did well with the treatment...and that Gwyneth is getting to be a chunky monkey. What a great feeling that must be for ya'll. Have a great day.

Praying that Tricia's treatment continues to go as smoothly as possible, and that she soon gets a great report from her doctors!

Michelle McCallum said...

What a big girl! That is wonderful. Prayers for a safe trip home and especially for Tricia's health.

So happy to hear things went well! Ok, so I wasnt right about the weight, I was trying to give here a few more pounds, lol but its a wonderful weight gain for little Gwyneth or should I say BIG Gwenyth. Sorry Tricia missed her appt. but Im so glad she didnt have any side affects from treatment this week. Hope they made it home safe and sound to you and will be praying the progress continues to go the way it is.
