The Continuing Adventures of SuperPreemie

For Tricia…

Posted on: March 12, 2008

Some of my fellow preemie parents are already following Tricia, Gwyneth, and Nate’s story.  For those who aren’t, the short version goes like this:

Tricia is a young woman living with cystic fibrosis.  She was on the road to a double-lung transplant, which will hopefully greatly prolong her life, when she got pregnant.  She and her husband Nate decided to postpone the transplant and carry the pregnancy.  Due to Tricia’s deteriorating health, Gwyneth Rose was delivered at 24 weeks and has generally been doing quite well, though she landed back on the vent yesterday and they’re not sure what’s going on.  Both Tricia and Gwyneth are hospitalized at Duke – Tricia as she waits for a new set of lungs, Gwyneth while she gets big and healthy enough to go home.

Anyway… some blogging moms are trying to help this lovely family look towards the future, but telling Tricia all the things that we look forward to for her – the things that may drive us batty about our kids but that she will truly appreciate.  So… For Tricia… May you enjoy:

  • The three year old who continuously asks you, “Why I did that?” like you have any idea what’s going on in their little brains.
  • The kid who refuses to nap EXCEPT on the one day when you need to be someplace at 2:30 in the afternoon.
  • The kid who stubbornly insists on putting the milk in the fridge herself, and shoves you out of the way (and into the freezer handle) in her insistence that she has to open the fridge herself, you are not allowed to do it.
