I am the mom of a 10 year old son with Cystic Fibrosis (Ty) and an 11 year old son without CF (Bran). This is my journey as I balance Ty's needs while giving Bran the love and attention he deserves.

My Return To Work

is coming up on Monday!  I've been out with Tyler since June 10.  Wow!  It's been a long and tough summer!  I work in a maximum security (adult male) prison.  My co-workers have blessed our family beyond belief during Ty's recent hospitalizations.  Many of the officers don't even know who I am, yet they gave from their hearts and prayed many prayers for us. I am so grateful to each and every one of my family, friends and co-workers.

Ty's cough seems to be disappearing except for an occasional bout. I have to remind him to cough to keep it loosened up.  He is still able to cough mucus up and out so I am pleased with that. We've gone from doing treatments, IVs and medications nearly 'round the clock to only three times a day. I keep thinking there is more we're supposed to do and have to remind myself that this is it!!

The Prednisone has his face puffy and he's beginning to sneeze and fill a kleenex when he blows his nose. It also has a little blood in it so I'll keep an eye on that. Bran, my non-CFer has also been sneezing so it must be something in the air or "seasonal". It usually takes a few days, but Claritin works wonders for Bran!

Well, that's about all the news that is news for now!  The heat continues this weekend so everyone keep cool!
