The Lawrenson Family

If you don't already know them (so many people have been touched by their story) I'd like to introduce you to Nate, Tricia, and Gwyneth. Nate blogs the story of their family with amazing faith, grace, and humor. Tricia has cystic fibrosis. In January she gave birth to Gwyneth and a short few months later underwent a double lung transplant. Gwyneth is a double miracle in that Tricia got pregnant with her right as they were giving up hope of a baby (Tricia was about to be activated on the transplant list and risked her own life to give Gwyneth hers) and also in that she is doing fantastically considering she was born very prematurely.

I'm posting this today to ask for prayers and good thoughts for Tricia. She was diagnosed with a form of cancer common to transplant patients shortly after the surgery. The cancer didn't respond well to the intital round of treatment so she will begin a more agressive round now. If the cancer doesn't respond to it Tricia is in trouble. So, please, if you pray please send some up for Tricia and her family!

I'm not sure I can put into words what sharing their journey through Nate's blog (you can also click on Confessions of a CF Husband in my blog list) has meant to me. It's something you have to be open to and experience for yourself I think. Please consider checking it out!

I was so sad to read that update early this morning. So much to deal with. I can't even imagine.
