Five Month Update

It's now been five months since Tricia's second transplant!  She continues to remain stable, but has been unable to gain any weight.  She had several appointments yesterday (our first time to Duke in a month!!!), and her doctor believes that she should start to gain some weight and feel more energy after the six month mark.

 In the meantime, Tricia continues to enjoy life as best she can.  Fall is her favorite season, and she's been spending as much time as possible outside with the kids after school.  The kids are excited for Halloween, and we're all looking forward to spending more time with family around Thanksgiving and Christmas.

As always, thank you for your prayer and support.  God is using your encouragement to sustain Tricia while she patiently waits for the weight and energy to increase.

Praying that Tricia soon will be putting on some pounds and that her energy will return. So glad she is home and able to spend quality time with you and the kids. May God keep all of you in His loving care.

Nate, I've been following you and Tricia for years and I thought I was a good follow-er, but I've seen reference to kids, plural, for some time and I'm just lost. Is this a foster child?

I am hoping that you will write an update for the end of 2013. I don't do twitter and have been wondering how Tricia is doing. It will help in knowing how to pray. I trust you had a blessed Christmas and wishing you a good 2014!
