In the Lives of Bloggers

I am so saddened to hear that Brainhell has died. He was diagnosed with ALS four years ago. He started his blog to document the process. Brainhell leaves a wife and two young children.

Nathan is keeping a blog about his life with his wife Tricia, who has cystic fibrosis. She was awaiting a double lung transplant when she found out she was pregnant. She and the baby each were given a 50-50 chance of surviving. Tricia underwent a Caesarian section January 8th, and Gwyneth Rose was welcomed into the world at 1 pound, 6 ounces. You can read the short version of the story in this post. Then read and bookmark Nathan’s blog Confessions of a CF Husband. Tricia also has a blog, called My Blog. Try keep a box of hankies handy when you read. And then say a prayer.

Lori at Clueless in Carolina is in the unenviable position of wresting control of her mother’s affairs for her own good. Alzheimer’s is heartbreaking. And scary.

Omegamom’s grandma died earlier this month. She was 104.

Actor212 at Simply Left Behind is waiting for the results of his second skin cancer biopsy.

While this post is mostly prayer requests, there is some good news.

Congratulations to Evil Richard at YesButNoButYes and his wife on the birth of their daughter Evan!

Congratulations to Cory Doctorow at Boing Boing on the birth of a daughter! I would put her name here, but I’m sure to get it wrong somewhere.
