Friday Morning Update

Tricia is getting her bronch right now...I'm in her room waiting for her to return. Gwyneth is hanging out with Grandma at the hotel.

The docs told Tricia this morning that she should be discharged sometime between Monday and Wednesday. Because she's feeling so much better, and the medical team believes they have her infection under control, Gwyneth and I will be heading home this afternoon...either Agnes will stay here in Durham and wait for Tricia's discharge, or she'll head home as well and I'll return early next week (depending on what Tricia wants).

Thanks!

Nate

Good to hear about Tricia's soon to be homecoming. I am sure that she is looking forward to coming home to watch all of those baseball games with you.

What team do you follow? I know you must be a Phillie fan...right?

I'm glad Tricia is feeling better. When Tricia is released next week, will she be able to have her appointments that you all originally went to Durham for? I hope so!

Hi you guys.....I have never posted before, but felt moved to do so today.

I have come to care for you guys and you are always in my prayers. Your love for each other and your faith has helped me in so many ways that I can't begin to describe. Tricia, I just need to let you know that you are a such an inspiration to me. Your trials over the past year have made me cringe at the thought of what I would possible do if faced with such a crisis, but you have stayed true to your faith. That give me hope in mankind as a whole.

Know that you guys are thought of often, my prayers are with you and praying for nothing but the best for you all. Hugs.....Melissa from GA.

PS. my sister is post transplant (liver) and is gettin ready for her annual visit to Mayo. Asking prayers for a great report.

I haven't posted for quite awhile, but I just wanted you to know that as a CF mom, and feeling this anguish for Tricia, I am just in tears over this late course of events. I am also a Christian and believe in the awesome power of God, and I sure am calling on Him to give you guys a break, some peace, and the chance to enjoy your little family. Keep believing, and we'll be standing with you. Much love, Margaret Payne
