Our Life has Changed.. But Not Our Outlook!Posted: June 12, 2012
We received unexpected, life-changing news last week: our newborn baby boy has been diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. We go to get our five-year-old tested next week, as this is an inherited disease in which symptoms can start at any age and vary from person to person. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. I plan on keeping this blog going with the same goal and purpose: bringing our family (and possibly yours!) closer together. I may be adding an additional blog about our personal experiences with CF, raising awareness, and other similar topics. Talking and writing about it really helps sort out my feelings, which is a tool I would love to pass on to our children someday.
Thanks for understanding if there is a long break in my blogging (again!) while we get a handle on this disease!
Please visit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to learn about this disease that effects 30,000 children and adults (and their families) in the United States and help spread awareness.
**UPDATE: Our five-year-old tested negative for Cystic Fibrosis. He just gets to be our little helper for his baby brother. Thank the good Lord for that!**
