I can't stop thinking about Tricia and can only imagine how agonizing the wait is for you. I pray God infuses you with extra strength and peace and that the surgery is completed soon with you receiving the word that everything went perfectly and that Tricia is doing great.
Been praying through the night...Aspiemom
Nate, I woke up several times during the night and have been praying for Trisha, you and all involved. We've prayed for the medical team, for strength, clarity of mind, steady hands, skill above their own. Thanks for the updates.
Thank you Nate,I can't sleep. I have been praying for Trisha and having her on my mind. It amazes me how someone I have never physically met gives me the feeling of family.Thank you again for allowing us to share in your wonderful families story.May God continue to watch over you and Trisha and Gwyneth.
Thanks for the update. Still watching and praying.
I think you're right fuzz. Amazing how many people are staying up with Nate and family. Couldn't sleep if I tried real hard!!And thanks for updating us NateGod Bless Jamie in Texas
Those are some great pictures, Nate. You really have a gift!Aspiemom
no news is good news..still praying for Tricia as well as the wonderful donor's family.
Thank you for taking the time to let us know. I can't imagine how difficult this waiting period is for you. You, Tricia and darling little Gwyneth are in our thoughts
praying and waiting with you...
Best wishes and Tricia will be in our prayers.Alice's aunt in England.
Everytime I woke up I said a little prayer (ok no prayer is little). IT went something like that.Dear God, please hold Tricia's lungs in your hands. Allow them to take deep fulfilling breaths and guide the surgeon's hands as they hold Tricia's lungs in their hands.
Was wonderful to hear before I went to bed last night that all was going ahead. Up early this morning awaiting news. Thinking & praying for you all. xx
Praying for you all, Nate.I have never sat and pressed refresh on one website so much as I have here this morning. Thank you for letting us into your lives.
It's times like this that a fast forward button would be nice!
Still praying and sending good thoughts your way!Its a good thing I live in China where it has been daytime during all these updates, otherwise I wouldn't have been able to sleep! Though I haven't been able to do much anways...always have to check for more news!Andrea-coming out of lurkdom for a good cause=]
Prayers still coming your way. May God guide those who are taking care of your wife. Take Care...kenda in Illinois
Up with you and the others...praying for you...
still here with you Nate. My surgery took almost 10 hours I believe so don't worry about the extra time.I havn't even seen it yet but I can't wait to share the footage of the actual surgery with you and Tricia so that you will be able to see it if you so wish. My surgeon, Dr. Yee is one of (the other being you) the reasons I found God...or rather God found me. He is a strong Christian and has no qualms about stating his belief in God. He takes no responsibility for the miracles he takes part in and says he is simply a tool for God's work.I'm still updating pics just for you!Love, Evahttp://65redroses.livejournal.com/
Just jumped back to check, thanks for the update...
Thanks for the update.You are all in our thoughts and prayersxxx
Nate- my motto- no news is good news.I am sure I have read this in one of your posts as well.I know when my Mum had an op we thought it was forever until we heard- Then silly us we realized it was forever !!! Keep strong & big hugs for both you & Gwyneth. I haven't read whether you have been to see baby since Tricia has been in surgery. Go & see Precious White Rose as she nearly needs curlers in her gorgeous strawberry blonde locks Nate.Stay strong Buddy.You have a wifey who LOVES you Dearly.
Some are going to sleep and some are just waking up. Looks like you have 'round the clock prayer service.
Continuing to pray for peace of mind for Nate, a successful surgery for Tricia, and a healthy Mommy for Gwyneth to leave the hospital with. Your family gives me strength and hope. What a beautiful family you are, and I am grateful to be able to witness your beautiful life.Candi YaYa to Bryan
I am amazed at how many folks from all over th world, and many of those have not yet gone to sleep praying for Tricia (myself included) Powerful blog you set up Nate. Thank you for sharing so much.

Hey Nate,Still up with you, it's 2:47 here on the west coast. While waiting up with you I decided to make a blogger profile so that my picture comes up when I post! I don't know if the name will be different or how this works. I don't have a blog on blogspot but hopefully now it will reroute people to my LiveJournal page if they want to learn more about the journey up ahead that Tricia will hopefully get to experience soon!!Still Praying for all the right things!!!Your friend,Eva
Lots of prayers for you from Shanghai, China. Thanks for keeping us updated.
Nate, we checked in on you guys first thing this morning. We're up & will have our phones on us if you need anything at all.
This is the absolute FIRST time BOTH of my twins have EVER slept through the night (and they are 17 months old) and tonight it was ME who couldn't fall asleep because I kept wondering how things were going with Tricia. So in lieu of sleep I prayed for all of you. You are a strong person, Nate. Most of the rest of us aren't that tough.
Praying in Ohio!
5:50 am here, I couldn't get back to sleep after waking up and thinking of you guys. Still praying...hoping to check back soon and find that surgery is done and Tricia is doing well.Beautiful pictures, btw. I can't believe how big Gwyneth is getting.

Well, sleepless and WIRED in Vancouver BC - oh, the power of prayer and positive thoughts. My prayer is for the endurance of all involved, your families, and the skills, commitment and passion the medical team at Duke has on Tricia's behalf. You have a story of miracles, the first being the miracle of the gospel seed being sown in your hearts, and of course the two miracle women in you life!Thanks for updating. We are all in our separate waiting rooms, looking forward to more miracle news!Karen

I have been reading your blog since January and this is the first time I have left a comment. I think I was subconsciously waiting for this event. I am praying for you and Tricia and for everyone involved. I am praying for Gwyneth that she will soon be home with her Mommy and her new lungs.I renewed my license yesterday and checked the donor box and I am O negative, the universal donor...
Continuing to pray...
Just checking in. Can't wait to hear the good news that the surgery is over.
I hope everything goes as well as it possibly can and that Tricia comes out of surgery soon. You will be in my thoughts. I will check in often for updates. Thank you so much for sharing this incredible journey with us.

Honestly I do not remember how I came across your blog and I thank GOD that I did. I have been checking in on your family I think since January.

Continual prayers....I had a "long night" w/ my son's asthma, which, in turn caused me to think of you all, a lot and I spent a lot of time in prayer....hope you're doing okay Nate!
It's 4 a.m. here in California and this is the first thing I had to do. I was so hoping that she was out of surgery. I was up praying most of the night. thank you for posting the pics of Tricia with Gwenyth, that is the most precious vision. Big hugs. Please know that I have three more churches praying for you.

Thanks for the update - I hope there is another one real soon.God Bless you and your family.
I can't help but think that no news is good news. Cliche, perhaps, but it's holding true. Go snuggle with Gwyneth and try not to worry *too much*
I'm so glad surgery went well. I have been checking a ton to see if anything had been updated. I'll be praying now for a quick recovery, and that there will be on infections. God is awesome. Thank you so much for keeping us updated!
What a long night for you, may Tricia have a speedy recovery. Okie Nana -from Northern Oklahoma
Thank God for answering all the prayers. I know that the next few hours/days will be tense and you must all be exhausted. But hang in there and remember all the people who are out there thinking of and praying for you. It is like a universal prayer circle and it is enclosing Tricia and Nate and Gywneth and all the family, as well as the grieving organ donor family. We will think of you today and hope that Tricia will continue to recover and rest and that you will all get some much-needed sleep and peace of mind. With love, hope and many prayers,Tricia and Clan (N.VA) :))))) (((((oxoxoxo
Still praying and waiting to hear that you have been able to see her. I can not imagine how you feel during the waiting period, but I do know that I have prayed big prayers of guidance over the doctors hands. What an AWESOME God we serve!
tric is beautiful in so many ways
