prayer request for tripp

I just wanted to stop by and ask for prayers for sweet Tripp. He woke up Monday with a corneal abrasion and must have rubbed his eyes so much during the night it caused a big blister under his eyelid on the opposite eye. Courtney says he's barely opened his eyes the last couple days, and when he does, you can just see how much it's hurting him.

In addition to that, he's been breathing more and more poorly, and just generally seems to feel worse overall.

Courtney cannot go ANYwhere. She NEVER gets a break. She NEVER gets out of the house. Ever.

I know I feel about half-crazy right now with our EB issues (webbing toes, eating struggles) and the no naps thing. And our frustrations don't even compare to feeding tubes, trachs, and corneal abrasions. I cannot imagine how frustrating, overwhelming, and disheartening this must all be for her. It's like no matter what she does or how hard she works, the hits just keep on coming. For her and for Tripp.

I'm so sad for her. Please keep the two of them and also Tripp's dad, Randy, in your prayers.

You can follow Tripp's story here.

Pray for you guys and tripp and family always...I now follow tripp's story too...how can you not love both your family and theirs?

I hate to hear you are still feeling "funky" and that Tripp has had a setback...

Loved the new photo's you posted and the birthday party was an obvious success with the money raised, and fun times. Loved the photo's of the cake...it looked awesome!

Praying...

Next to sweet Jonah, I think Tripp has one of the sweetest faces around. He's on my prayer list. I'll leave a message for Courtney too.

Hope you've had a good day, and that you'll rest well tonight.

Love from TX!

hang in there Patrice..... God is here in this season right along with you. I wish there was more we could all do. I pray everyday that EB justs goes away and leaves these sweet kids alone!!!!
I wish I could say something to help pull you out. I can tell you from my own season with depression that the dark just took me over and I didn't even want to be pulled out....
I am praying, praying

give your sweet boy a kiss

Your little boy is so gorgeous and so precious to me after reading about him and praying for him for months now. Thank you for sharing him with the world. I can't know how painful it must be for Tripp's mama to watch him in pain every day but we all know there is a plan that he is living out. It will take a trip to heaven for us to hear what it is!
God bless you and yours
