Tricia update… surgery successful!


Photo by Nathan Lawrenson, taken yesterday, Tricia’s last day with CF lungs.

Tricia’s surgery was successful! Praise God!

I know Nate (and the rest of his and Tricia’s families) had a LONG night. He posted a few times overnight, including some great photos of Tricia yesterday… and of Nate and Gwyneth… and of Tricia and Gwyneth (also taken yesterday). Go over. Take a look. Leave a nice word or two for Nate. I know he’s appreciating all the support.

By the way… Yesterday? It was Nate’s birthday. New lungs for your wife: best birthday present EVER!

Nathan, Tricia, and Gwyneth’s story — in a nutshell

The story of Nathan, Tricia, and Gwyneth Lawrenson was on the front page of today’s Raleigh/Durham News and Observer. You can read the article here. It’s a fabulous article.

I’ve posted about this family several other times. Nathan’s blog is at This article will help you “catch up,” if you’d like. 🙂 Nathan’s observations about the article are here. I’m sure he’d love you to leave him a comment.

Also too wonderful for words…

This has been quite the 24 hours for Tricia, Nate and Gwyneth. This morning, I posted pictures of Nate holding Gwyneth for the first time. Here is video. It’s well worth the watch, especially when Nate talks about all the things Gwyneth is doing while she’s safe and sound in her daddy’s arms. And if all this weren’t enough, check out the latest news on Tricia.

I’ll keep posting updates as I feel led, but if you’re interested in the story, bookmark their site.

They’ve been on an amazing journey. They still have a long road ahead of them, but I know they’re so thankful for all the blessings they’ve received so far.
