Please Pray For The Life Of Tricia, Her Huband Nathan, And Their Unborn Baby

Briefly, my sister-in-law, Tricia has Cystic Fibrosis and was due for a double lung transplant. Shortly there after they found out Tricia was pregnant. The doctors suggested aborting the baby so she could go ahead with the transplant. Tricia and Nathan said no. Tricia is now in her 24th week of pregnancy, but many complications have occurred. Her lungs are failing her.
Tricia's CO2 levels are up (which is not good), and they are moving her to the ICU this afternoon. They'll have her up there for a little while, and if her CO2 levels do not go down, they will intubate her and then give her a tracheotomy and place her on a ventilator. The intubation and tracheotomy are very risky for her, and there is a chance that they will be forced to take the baby via c section if her body does not respond well.

This is basically crunch time for us, and we appreciate your prayers more than ever right now. I'll update more this evening when I can.


Please pray for them! You can follow what's happening on Nathan's blog, Confessions of a CF Husband.
