Tricia is back in the hospital, and the doctors say things look "very bad". She has been having trouble breathing the past week, so much so that we had to cut our time with family short in NJ and fly her down to Duke on Saturday. The doctors believe her rejection is back, in the form of something called BOS. She is set to receive a medication called CAMPATH, which is a chemo drug that will wipe her immune system out for up to a year. But, she has a sinus infection that must be cleared up before the CAMPATH can begin.
I drove the kids home on Saturday, and Gwyneth and I are packing the car right now to drive to Duke. Tricia desperately needs your prayers. Her PFTs are down in the 20's, which is just a little higher that when she received her transplant, and her weight is actually lower than her transplant weight. She is in a very precarious situation.
Please, pass this along to anyone you know. I will be blogging as much as possible, but if you'd like to receive more updates, you can also follow me on Twitter.
