Re-Transplant

We got word a few weeks ago that Tricia's medical team is moving forward with a plan to get Tricia back on the transplant list for a second double lung transplant.  We are waiting for the word from her team to know what the timeline is, so we really don't have much to tell you other than that.  We are still praying that the CAMPATH will work and reverse this rejection, and would appreciate your continued prayers about this as well.

Wow. I'm so shocked that it has come to this. I know CF is a tough disease and it's never set in stone what's going to happen but I can just imagine that you are beside yourself. Prayers for you all.

Since your family has gone through this before it must seem very daunting to think of doing it again. Please know that so many people think of you and send love and healing thoughts.

Prayers for all of you. A teen-age single mom at our church just gave birth to a beautiful little girl with CF. I often think of your family as I look into those precious little eyes!

Thank-you for the update. Praying for the end to rejection and peace as you wait for the next step whatever that may be for your sweet family.

Jo said...

I am so sorry. It's been a rough week with CF for my family and I had hoped by checking on other CF families online that I would find better news. Our son, Micah, lost his battle with this stupid disease Thursday (7/12). It never gets easier. Micah was 10. I will pray for better news in Tricia's fight with this thief.

I will continue to pray for all of you. I am so glad you and Tricia know Jesus. I don't know how people can live life without Him.

Praying that the transplant happens soon! I know that going through the transplant process is INCREDIBLY difficult on Tricia's body, but I would think the sooner the better. Praying for you all!

I used to follow your blog regularly; my husband has battled CF his whole life, until 10 years ago when he received a double-lung transplant at Stanford. In October 2011, he developed chronic rejection and was on oxygen 24/7 and permanently hospitalized in January until he received his second double-lung transplant in early February - he is now home, holding our 1 year old son, and gearing up to go back to work.

When I read this post tonight, my heart broke. CF is awful and rejection is just as devastating. My prayers and thoughts are with you all. Many prayers for peace, a new set of lungs, and a successful surgery are being sent. Duke is wonderful.
