6 Month Re-Birthday

6 months ago today, my wife was given a second chance at life.

Every day that goes by, I am more and more thankful for the donor and family as well as the medical staff at Duke who gave Tricia back to me.

I normally work on Thursdays, but today, I'm moving my schedule around to take the day off and spend time with my girls. We might even have a party.

Thank you. Thank God.

Nate

My baby girl was born 6 months ago tomorrow, and I remember well checking for your blog updates at 3:00 a.m. while I was trying to figure out if I was actually in labor!! I assure you that I'll not soon forget.

What a fantastic day to celebrate! Enjoy it, all of you!!

You all have worked your way right into my heart. There is not a day that goes by that I don't thank the Lord for your (collectively) testimony. Praying still for your family.

Tricia is a miracle. Your family is a miracle. Thank you for sharing your faith and miracles with us all. Tricia, we wish you a healing and easier next six months. You are amazing! You inspire me daily to appreciate my children and my life more. I pray that you will be given continued strength and faith to get through the next part of your journey. Enjoy each other and that beautiful little girl today! We will celebrate with you in spirit!

Congrats on 6 months of breathing with new lungs-such an amazing you've all been given! My thoughts and prayers are still with you all and your donor family too. I hope someday you have the chance to thank them in person-I've been lucky enough to be present for some donor family/recipient meetings as part of my job (transplant coordinator) and it is by far the most AMAZING and moving thing I've ever witnessed. Enjoy your girls today Nate!
