Hurricane Irene

We are safe and sound, out house is dry. But, the flooding here is historic, never been anything like it. Many people are still without power, some without water or any help because of damaged roads. Thank you for prayer for our community. It will take a long time to recover from this. I'll post some photos and links when I can.

CF Education Day Update

Below is the flier (click on it to view larger size) for the event with all the information you should need to attend. Again, this is a free event, but they do want you to register so they can anticipate the number of people attending and can order the correct number of lunches. Thanks!

New Glasses

First, thank you for praying for Tricia. She is nearly fully recovered from her surgery. Yet to know if the surgery has made a difference, but we're just happy that she's back on her feet and back to "normal".

Gwyneth's new glasses arrived yesterday! Her prescription changed, and we were told that it would be cheaper to purchase new frames than to change the lenses. So, we let her pick out the color. We decided to try rectangle frames this time, and she picked the purple, even over the same pink color as her old frames. We love them! The color is actually a darker purple than what showed up in this photo, so I'll try to take a better photo for you later.

We will be speaking around 1pm. I will post more information about the other speakers when I receive it.

You are welcome to come for the entire event or just to hear us speak, but they do want you to RSVP. As soon as I have the RSVP info, I will share it here. You can also "attend" the Facebook Event and invite others who might be interested.

Surgery Today

1:25 - Tricia is in her room, feeling some pain, and throwing up from the pain meds.

12:50 - Tricia is being moved to her room. She got her wish to stay on the CF floor. Should see plenty of familiar faces! I still haven't seen her...

9:40 - Surgery went well. Waiting to see her.

9:35am - Tricia is out of surgery. Waiting for the consult with the surgeon.

8:00am - Surgery just began.

7:30am - They just rolled Tricia into the OR. Should be about 2.5 hours.

We report to the hospital at 5:30am (who picks these times?!?!) for a 7:30am surgery. I'll update on this post throughout the day, although we don't expect anything very exciting to happen. Thanks for your prayers!
