Transplantiversary Party!

First of all, THIS IS A SECRET FROM TRICIA! She has been forbidden to view my blog or ask anyone about my blog for the next week. So, PLEASE, help me to keep this a secret from Tricia!!!

We are celebrating Tricia's one year anniversary of her double lung transplant (transplantiversary) with a party, and you're invited! The party is taking place this Friday evening, April 3 (exactly one year after Tricia woke up from her transplant surgery)...more details to follow ASAP (yes, this is an actual party, as in a real place with real people)...in the meantime, keep the date open if you can because EVERYONE is invited!

Thanks!

Nate

Too bad I can't make the drive from Chicago. :-)

Can't believe it's been a year! I have truly loved following your story and praying along side millions.

Kari said...

FUN!! Can I drive to the secret local from Houston??

Brown Eyed Girl said...

Oh, I sure wish that I could come to the party. A little to far to drive from Grand Rapids, MI. How about an address where we can send cards.

((Hugs!))

Ah, Nathan that is going to be the BIGGEST surprise ever. What a sweet husband you are with a pretty sweet idea for this all too.
I wish so much I could make the drive just to witness & share in the joy.
I will be with you all in spirit, though I really wish I was able to be there.

Hope there will be a video of the big secret.

Sincerely,

Pati.

Well, how very sneaky of you! Sounds like a wonderful idea!!! Can't wait to hear more about it.

Staci said...

Wow... amazing that it has been a year. And what a remarkable one it has been. The party sounds awesome. Wish we could be there. Defintely something to celebrate!

Carol said...

I am with Brown Eyed Girl - can you give us an address so we can send along a card? Will definitely be celebrating in spirit in any event.

Jennifer said...

That sounds like a BLAST. :O I wish I could come.

Patty said...

Oh what fun! I wish we lived closer!

brunettekoala said...

I'd totally come, but I don't think I can afford the transatlantic airfare :(

Lisa said...

Very fun! And touching to open your party to EVERYONE! What a blast! You aren't too far either and it would be wonderful to meet your family and spend time at one of my favorite vacation spots, but it is impossible right now for me to make the 10 hour road trip. Have fun!!!

The Liberto Family said...

That is going to be on BIG party! I'm so happy to hear it's been a year and things are going good for her. Wish we could come to the party and meet you all in person. Can I get an address so I can send a card?
Can't wait to read about the party!

Jane-Jane said...

i could soooo drive up there and party with yall!

Ruth said...

I would love to be there but I fear my car wouldn't make the drive from Pickens, SC (near Georgia) but you all will be in my thoughts and prayers. Thank you for your blog it is an incredible inspiration to me. :-D

rebekkah said...

Tricia is "forbidden" from your site?! lol..like that will stop her from looking?! She must be awfully suspicious now if you told her NOT to look at your blog...so now of course she KNOWS somethings UP!

I feel so sorry for the donor's family at this time that you are celebrating life. They have heavy hearts and are mourning a loss. I know this, because I am in their shoes right now. Please keep praying for them....never forget that without their sacrifice, your wife wouldn't be here with you now.

Rick Lawrenson said...

Unless Nathan posts a different address, you can send cards to him at
PO Box 302
Nags Head, NC 27959

Josh and Kelly said...

SOOOOO EXCITED that we will actually be visiting you from NJ this weekend and can be at the party!!! Yay!

Jenn said...

What a fun surprise! I'm wishing more than ever that I didn't live in Ohio right now. Have a great time and you are an awesome husband!

TheRagan3 said...

that is so cool that you are doing this for your wifey! She will love it. And what an amazing thing to celebrate -- LIFE, her LIFE!! Thanks God for your amazing gift of life, physical and spiritual! Blessings to you!
Thanks Rick for the address... sending cards is a GREAT idea!

We would love to go!! But I'm not sure how well the 2 hour drive would sit with the family after a long day at school.... wish we could go! We'd love to send cards though!

It's hard to believe it's been almost a year already. We won't be at the party, but we will be in Nags Head and plan to attend NHC on September 20th. It's been a few years since we've been down there and we're looking forward to the beach and meeting you and your girls. We know your dad a little bit and my husband and I knew your uncles in high school in Lynchburg.

Tammy said...

I can't believe it has been a year already!! Wish I could be there in person to celebrate with the 3 of you, a little to far from here in northeastern Indiana. However, we are trying to plan a summer vacation down your way this year. Congrats to Tricia and all of you on the 1 year anniversary. I am sure there will be many more anniversaries to celebrate in the future.
