Our grandson, who is almost 16 was just diagnosed with CF…and we are having a hard time accepting it…Would like to chat with others that are dealing with it…
I am currently living with CF and CF related Diabetes and suffer from chronic pancreatitas. My brother also has CF. I thought it would be a good idea to not only join and learn from others, but maybe could also help those in the same situation
Hello, I just wanted to address all of you with CF and tell you, I think you are AMAZING people!!! Because I am a respiratory therapist, I work with a LOT of CF patients. I’ve had SUCH great opportunities to meet and work with some really amazing CF patients. It is one of those diseases that is just SO complex and involved. I am mystified at how people cope. I’ve seen some terrible examples of the “support systems” gone bust. Those just make me roll my eyes. I’ve mostly seen support systems that are ROCK solid. Because of my OWN mountainous health issues, I can understand in a lot of respects what people go through, but CF patients have a very special place in my heart. I have been one of those to see a patient to their final breath. I have been there with their families, gone to their funerals, even participated in the services sometimes.
I have also been SO BLESSED to see a patient through to their lung transplant (it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life!!). The surgeon that DID the actual transplant invited me to WATCH the surgery. Of course the patient said it was okay. It was SO amazing!! I knew in my heart that this patient was suppose to live, and go on to do some amazing things. I believed it, when no one else did. This patient made a miraculous recovery and to my knowledge is doing AWESOME with their new lungs. The coolest part about it? The patient is 46 years old!!
I wrote some music because of this experience. I’d love to share it at a later time. Right now…I have some patients to see. grinz Keep fighting the good fight!!
My daughter, now 2 yrs old, was diagnosed with CF @ the age of 7mos. I am always looking for new people with great ideas on raising a child with CF.
