Five Years

It's been five years.  Five years that we will never take for granted.  Five years ago at this exact moment I was getting settled in for a long night, awaiting the word that Tricia's double lung transplant surgery had been successful.  Hundreds, maybe thousands of people, mostly strangers stayed awake with me, reading my blog updates every few hours, holding their collective breath, praying for Tricia's second first breath.

I know it's been frustrating for you who care so much for Tricia for the past several months as the blog has been quiet.  For reasons I won't share, we felt it best to use only Twitter and Facebook to update about Tricia's health, and we deeply appreciate your patience.

Tricia's health has very slowly continued to decline since arriving in Durham in mid-October.  She is down to 100 lbs, her breathing numbers are severely low, and she is very, very weak.  She has had several different kinds of setbacks which have kept her from being re-listed...signs that her body is shutting down.  Tricia has been working incredibly hard, participating in physical therapy as much as her body will allow.  This journey has been incredibly difficult and frustrating for her.

We believe that the end is coming soon.  Either she will be relisted because she become a "now or never" case, or the transplant team decides she cannot be re-transplanted and sends us home.  We are not ready to be told "no"...as I've explained before, very few people get this second chance to begin with, and we are thankful that Tricia was given this opportunity, for which we are thankful.  It is amazing that Tricia has survived this long, through the winter, and until the team sends us home, we have some hope.  But, as I said, all the signs are pointing to the fact that a decision will need to be made very soon.

Tricia is not ready to end this.  Although ultimately I believe we will both be able to accept God's will for this situation, Tricia doesn't want to leave her family, and I certainly don't want to continue this life without her.  We need your prayer and encouragement that the next few weeks will provide us with the clarity to see things as God sees them.  We are praying that Tricia will hit her weight and strength goals and that the setbacks will cease so that she can be listed and transplanted as soon as possible, and if not that God will give us peace.

Thank you so much for your support over the years and now.  I will update the blog again when I can.

I follow you on Twitter and wondered if this might be the way things are right now. I hope and pray she does improve. I have been already doing that. I am sure one is never ready to leave a family or ever ready to let that loved one leave. I don't think it is wrong to hate sickness and death. It wasn't supposed to be this way. Without the blessed hope in Christ, I can't see how anyone could ever walk that road. I'll pray for you all. My heart is heavy for Gwenyth too. She is just precious and such a miracle! I'll pray you guys will have wisdom to prepare her if the time comes for her to let go. I hope you are strengthened knowing people are upholding you in prayer. It must be tough for you.

After my husband died 9 months ago, I learned to stop trying to find words for an unimaginable situation. I have followed your blog since she was pregnant with Gwyneth, and y'all have continued to be in my prayers since then. As a newly widowed Mommy of two children, your words have always given me hope and comfort.

Hmm....I guess I was able to find something to say after all!

A song came to mind while reading this post. It is entitled "New Grace" and the chorus says: Grace not yet discovered, grace not yet uncovered, grace from His bountiful store. Grace to cross the river, grace to face forever, there'll be new grace I've not needed before. Praying for God's grace for you and Tricia during this season of your lives. May you feel God's arms around you both.

Praying and posting your blog for family and friends to lift you up on this continued journey. May you have His perfect peace around you and within you. Our daughter is 16 and has CF. Tricia has been an exemplary role model for her, and Nate, you remind me that if it be God's will, He will have the perfect lover of her heart as well, to walk alongside her for the years she has ahead that God knows the number of. He picked you perfectly for Tricia to be a picture of Christ to her and love her so well. Many prayers.

Praying with thanksgiving and praise. God has been so faithful and He will be faithful still. I can't begin to know what this will look like but I know that He has your family close to His heart. This is so much easier for me to write than for you to walk. But I know you know even in your darkest moments that God is good. He will be good. His grace and favor will continue to allow you the freedom to trust Him even when you can not see.So I offer up this 'sacrafice' of praise for all that He has done and simply for who He is. Asking for a miracle and trusting in His provision.

I wanted to drop you a note to say how important your blog has been to me. I've been idly reading for years, so enjoying your little family, your faith, your love for Tricia. Then, 18 months ago, we had our first child after five years of trying. Unbeknownst to my husband and I, we are both carriers of the DF508 gene, and she has CF. The moment we got the news, I thought of you, and realised how God had been preparing my heart through your blog for years without me knowing it. I read this stage of your journey with such compassion and sorrow for you all, but also hope because our God is a great God. I hope that when it's my turn to go through this stage of Zoe's life I will trust God as thoroughly. Praying for Tricia and all of you today and in the days to come.
