...And Back Again

Back to Duke today and tomorrow (we should be on the road when this post appears)...Tricia has her bronchoscopy this afternoon (the one that was canceled because of her vocal chord surgery), and then her CF clinic tomorrow. She was feeling tired and was coughing up some crud last week, but seems to be doing much better the past few days. Hopefully we get a good report and our on our way home before too late tomorrow afternoon. Thanks for the prayers!

In other news, our new clothes dryer finally arrives today...so, we can all stop wearing our undies inside out!

The icicles in the pic below are hanging from our outdoor trashcan...I think they were about 5 inches long. Although several people guessed correctly, Kori was the first...BUT, she said "I'm guessing a flower pot or a trashcan" so I can only give her 43.5 CFHusband points for splitting her decision (BTW, the 43 points are as useless and the .5 points).


Here are a few pics of Gwyneth on our kitchen table to make this post a bit more interesting...

Just said a prayer for good news from the doctors today.

Are you putting Miracle Grow on Gwyneth's hair or what? Every time you post a picture it looks longer!

Praying for excellent reports today for Tricia and all goes well. As always, Gwyneth just keeps getting cuter and cuter. Hooray for your new clothes dryer. God invented them for women you know. Have a safe trip.

Love and Hugs, Laurie

Just said a prayer for great reports during Tricia's appointments.

Can I just say...Gwyneth has the most beautiful brown eyes!

Renee said...

Thinking about you guys and praying all goes well!

BTW, do you ever watch House? The baby on there last night looked so much like Gwyneth...it was freaky!

Sarah said...

Good luck!
I love Gwyneth's facial expressions. They always put a smile on my face.

Honestly Nate, that baby gets cuter everyday!....and I'm pretty darn biased to my own beautiful boys:) Also praying for good reports for Tricia

Kori said...

Whoo Hoo go me with my useless 43.5CFHusband points. haha

Praying for a safe trip and good news.

Rebecca said...

you should definitely do a caption contest for the middle picture! Gwyneth definitely has some personality!

Michelle Jamie said...

I love these new photos of Gwyneth, How do you get her eyes to go squint and is she still on fortified formula and meds?

Momof2bz said...

I hope Tricia has a great appointment today with good news. Have fun shopping. Thanks for leaving us with pics of baby G so that we can keep ourselves busy with thoughts of how adorable she is. Have a safe trip.

PS - Clothes Dryers are overrated until they invent one that folds. :)

i don't know if you realize, but there's probably alot of folks out there like me that check your blog everyday. and if thye're like me, they probably rejoice when there's a post about playing in the snow or marveling at icicles and other such normal activities.
as you hang out at duke today doing the doctor cha-cha, i'll be praying for good reports, and marveling again at how great our God is.
blessings to you and your family.

You'll not be able to have her on the table much longer - she'll be moving around pretty soon, if she isn't already!

All good wishes & prayers for Tricia's bronchoscopy.

I didn't know it was possible for Gwyneth to get any cuter! Apparently I was wrong!

MammaMia said...

Hope all goes well today!! Looks like Gwyneth is wondering why you'd put her at the kitchen table without food!!

Renelle and Cole said...

I hope all goes superbly at Duke and you guys will be back in YOUR home soon!

I love the pics of Gweynth...it's amazing what kids find fascinating, isn't it??? :)

The Beaver Bunch said...

Oh my word. Gwyneth just gets cuter and cuter.

Hannah Grace said...

WOW Gwyneth looks so much like her mom, (from what I've seen in the pictures)she is going to turn out to be just as beautiful I'm sure. You'll have your hands full trying to keep the boys off in a few years :)

I'll be praying that everything at the doctors goes well and that God will give you peace. Take care.

Pam D said...

Still hand-gazing, I see... I guess the therapy needs to continue! Praying for all to be well with today's visit.. and just praying.

Kristen said...

Very cute photos!
Question- with 'new' lungs, does T still have to do the vest or only when she's sick or what?
Thanks!

Your pictures of ice are such contrast to the heat we will be having in Victoria Australia today, it is goign to be 41 degrees celcius here by 9am they say..which is about 105F I think.
Positive thoughts are with you all for a good report for Tricia :)

Krista said...

Good luck at the doctors!!!

Gwyneth's too cute...and she makes a great center piece for your table!

KYnurse said...

I love reading your posts. Gwyneth is just as adorable as ever. I love the ones of her on the table. Some of her looks are just priceless.

Melissa said...

I love the pics of Gwyneth on the table! She looks like she is really holding her head up beautifully! My sons were also preemies, and I automatically notice developmental milestones like that. She is simply breathtakingly gorgeous and a miracle!
