Been following you since the beginning through a prayer chain forward to our church. Praying for the surgeons and nurses as they are God's hands through this transplant process. Praying for your family as you wait. Peace that passes understanding, calm assurance, faith and hope. Praying for those who gave this life giving gift in the midst of great sorrow and grief. Praying that the Lord will allow Tricia to deeply breathe in life giving air once again this side of heaven. Praying that He will allow her to continue to testify to His plan, His goodness, His love through a successful surgery and life post #2 so that many may be saved. She and we love you Lord no matter what. To God be all glory, all honor and all power. Blessed be His name. It is a privilege to pray with you. Karen
Dear Nate,I have been praying and checking on Tricia for such a long time and am so thankful that this day has come. I'll be checking twitter until I hear that she is out of surgery tonight, no matter what time it is. Your family is such a miracle.I was wondering why the second transplant surgery is often trickier than the first--of course, I understand if you don't want to discuss it here!Much love from a sister in Christ,Karen
YAHOOOO! Praying that somewhere, where a cherished life has been lost, a new one can be found in a successful transplant. Praying for sustained strength for Trisha...Lord we trust in you.

I was thinking about you all today after reading the tragic story of a heroic Louisiana family who made sure their sons organs were donated today after he was put on life support from injuries at football practice last week. Prayers for all of you carrying these crosses.
Sending prayers Tricia as well as the surgical team and the the donors family
Nate, Tricia, & Gwendolyn,I am sending you prayers of positive thinking. I hope that everything goes smoothly and calmly. I am praying for the nurses and surgeons, so all parts may work well together. I pray for the donor family as they experience the loss of a loved one. Hopefully, they will be able to find some small silver lining through helping to save the lives of others. By the way, do you work with Dr Reynolds? He's fairly new to Duke, used to be at Indy's Methodist. He saved my life before and I know he can do it again!!!-Crystal
Praise God!!! Praying for Tricia's surgery to go well and for her recovery to proceed smoothly. You guys have been so very patient all these long months. Praying, too, for the donor family. So thankful for their unselfish gift of their loved one's organs.
Praying for the best results possible. And, praying for donor family as well.
I am very happy Tricia has received another chance at life. Hoping for the best and thinking of the donor family.
Sending HUGE prayers in your direction!
I hope the transplant is going well! Thinking of you guys!
Just about to head off to bed and the Lord put Tricia and your family on my heart. Praying for you as you continue to wait for the surgery to end. Also praying for the donor family.
Praying for Tricia and your family - and for the donor family, too.
Praying that your needs are met in body mind and spirit and for comfort for the donor family
Nate, Does the donor arrive to Duke still on life support and they remove the lungs there? Or do they just remove lungs first and fly them in without donor body? Also do you ever get at chance to thank donor family?
Praying for the donor family as they grieve and prepare a funeral for their loved one. So sad.
Tears of JOY!!!
Thank you Jesus for being the Great Physician....for touching and healing Tricia...and giving her a third chance at life. Praise to You!!
Lots of prayers for you all from Maryland. And prayers for the beautiful family who decided to give life to others on their darkest day.
