A Modern Day Miracle

I haven't known exactly what to say in the last 24 hours... so much has happened with Nate & Tricia, and everything has happened so fast. If you want to believe in a God of miracles, go to Nate & Tricia's blog and read about a modern day miracle. Who would ever have thought that a girl on the verge of a lung transplant could carry a baby against the advice of her doctors, the baby surviving after being born at only 25 weeks utero, and has amazed the doctors at how uneventful her first two months have been. Then Tricia, being told if she survived the delivery would never make the transplant list again... and if she made the transplant list it would be at least 7 months down the road. Well, Tricia made the transplant list after only 2 months delivering her child and being in a drug induced coma for two weeks after her delivery.

I just sort of stand in shock at everything that has happened with this family and how flawlessly it is all happening. I think 99.9% of the world would have aborted the baby, and would have just gone on with their plans for their own life... but Nate and Tricia (especially Tricia) decided to trust God with her life and her child's life and have shown the world a modern day miracle for thousands to see again the power of God... and maybe just begin to believe what God could do in our lives if we would be able to trust our lives in His hands just like Nate and Tricia.

it has been awesome to watch their modern day miracle unfold before our eyes. One of the best two life stories I have read this year... the other is Baby Noah from Denver.

Oh how my heart breaks for little Dax still waiting for his liver.

I was too...but praise God both Nate and Rick posted.

I figure they weren't allowed back into the ICU until between 7-9....don't know what the restriction is all about (my guess is the fact that she has 2 nurses now and the need for quiet if the ward is for transplant patients.) And then getting caught up on both the girls, then to the puters to post....

it is tough waiting in our homes for confirmation that all is well. No matter what, we will Praise Jesus for everything.
