Wearing Orange

We didn't get the memo until after we left home, so our first stop this morning is Target to find something orange to wear as we pray for Stellan, Doctor A. and his medical team, and the MckFamily. Stellan's is actually headed into his very risky heart surgery right now, and, even as we sit in waiting rooms and visit with our own medical teams, we'll be praying that God will grant this little boy one more miracle.

Thanks for your prayers...we arrived safely in Durham last night around midnight. Today will be busy, although we don't know how much until Tricia gets evaluated. We'll be looking for other oranges in the hospital!

I have been thinking of both you guys and the MckFamily constantly (while pulling an all-nighter for a college paper. See--y'all have people praying around the clock!) Off to don an orange coat (slightly too warm for it, but it's for a good reason!)

Praying for Stellan and also holding Tricia in my prayers. I'm so sorry that she had to be admitted, but hope that they can treat the pneumonia effectively and get her back home very soon. I will continue to pray.

Jenn Meeker said...

Just saw your comment on twitter - praying for ya'll along with Stellan.

Shawna from Round Rock said...

Safe travels for your family and we will be praying for all of you. I don't have a blog, I just read them. :o) I just can't leave messages for Stellan's family, too. I guess you need one to be able to post. You are sweet to mention them on your blog. These little ones are such precious gifts from Him.

Praying for Tricia and Gwenyth...and you, too!

Kari said...

Prayers for you guys and for Stellan!!!

marcia said...

Nate, just saw your note on MckMama's Twitter...even signed up for Twitter now, so I can follow each of you there. Know I am praying and will be watching for updates, here. When I figure out what to do with my new Twitter status (remember I am that OLD person from MI!!!), I will show up there as deurma...so just know that is marcia from MI, with a new identity, just checking in and praying!

Kenzie said...

Praying for y'all as well as Jen, Stellan and their sweet family. Just saw your twitter about Tricia having pneumonia- I know y'all are on a roller coaster too. Please know that although I'm not commenting much these days, we are still praying for your precious family.

Much love,
Kenzie

Judy said...

I just read your tweets and it sounds like we need to be praying for Tricia too!

Amy said...

I did forget about the orange but thought of this family many times today...as well as of your family and hoping Tricia is okay.

Amy said...

I had read about Stellan, but didn't know he was having surgery today. I ended up putting on orange this morning anyway...funny how those things work out. I'll be praying for Stellan and his family as well as Tricia and yours!

Megan R. said...

We are praying for Stellan, the Mckfamily and your family as well. We are sporting our orange. In fact, Carson even made it onto MckMama's blog. He's wearing an orange collared shirt, orange cloth diaper, and holding an orange daisy with a sign that says Praying for Stellan in Nebraska.

I hope things are going well with you guys too, and that Tricia makes a quick recovery.

Melinda said...

We wore orange today for Stellan also ... praying for Tricia with her pneumonia treatment.

Congratulations on the upcoming birth of your sister's child! How exciting! (per twitter)
