Deactivated

Tricia was deactivated today because she has been having some issues with her stomach for about a week.  The pain became so severe that we ended up in the ER late Sunday night.  We have no idea what the problem is, and her team is running a bunch of tests this week to try and identify the problem.

Deactivation means that she is still on the list, but they will skip her name if lungs become available.  Reactivation is very simple, but they have to identify and fix the problem before they'll reactivate her.  As I explained in my last post, it is imperative that she gain as much weight a possible...obviously, if she's having stomach pain, it's going to affect her ability to take in calories.

PLEASE, pray that her team will be able to take care of this issue as quickly as possible.  Thank you.

Nate

Nathan, I am sitting in my office this a.m. and was overcome with the impression on my heart and mind to pray for you and your dear family at this very moment. I am praying faithfully for peace, provision and stamina on this journey. Please tell your beautiful bride that she is being prayed for today.

I came across your blog at the beginning of this month when I saw a "Pray for Tricia" photo on someone's Facebook page. After reading your story, I have been praying for you all daily. May the great Creator bless Tricia with complete health.

Rebecca said...

I have followed your blog and have prayed for Tricia since she was pregnant... continuing to pray!!! Will you please join me in praying for a dear friend of ours battling cancer?!? His time is very limited and is in need of a miracle.

I look at the date and how long she's been deactivated and pray her stomach issues are resolving and she's able to eat and start holding some weight. Praying she's well enough for new lungs and more time. It must be so hard on the kids...and for you Nate this is heartbreaking; your love is great! Hugs, Pam
