Confessions Of A CF Husband: Fast Track (Updated 7.4.08)
It's update time on this beautiful love story. A love story about a husband, his wife and their newborn daugher. In June, I wrote about finding this incredible blog, Confessions Of A CF Husband. I still find it incredible.
Nate 27, is still giving his 110% support as a devoted husband to his CF wife, Tricia 27, who is struggling for her life. CF eventually affects the lungs and breathing becomes a problem. They move from Nags Head, NC, to Durham, NC to be near Duke Medical Center Hospital. Here Tricia waits out her time for two lung donations. To their happiness, a first, and much wanted new life is beginning to grow in her. She decides to keep this new life growing inside her. At 24 weeks of gestation, the doctors decide an emergency C-cut must happen for the health of both. Behold an infant daughter, Gwyneth Rose.
Next, comes the much awaited news, two lungs are available. Today, Tricia is living on two borrowed lungs and recovering under the watchful eyes of her doctors and Nate's continued love and support.
By July 4th the family is together in a hotel room they have been calling "home" for close to a year. Life is getting, somewhat, back to normal. Gwyneth Rose weighs in at 7 1/2lbs, eats baby food and the Mommie has a new set of lungs. One day, soon, they will all three be moving back to their home on Nags Head, NC.
