Hi all, I just wanted to drop you all a line to say hello. I am not very active on the Cystic Fibrosis Moms. I am sorry for that but you know life is busy. I created this group for you all so you could ask each other questions and get support. You are welscome to send me private messages if you need to.

-A little about me. I am a wife and a mom of 2. Cassi is 11-1/2 nCF. Collin is 7-1/2. He was diagnosed (dx) with CF @ 16 months old after 10 months of me fighting and going to several drs to figure out whats wrong. Then @ 4-1/2 after telling the drs something is wrong he was dx'ed with Cirrhosis of the liver.

Collins lungs are in great shape there is no mucus. He does grow Pseudomonas A and Staph A sometimes. His main problems is sinuses. When he gets sick its sinus problems. He is 90% with growth.

I want every one to feel welcomed here. All I ask is to be kind and sinsative to peoples feelings.

Thanks Sandy

Hello Sandy. My name is Lanor. I have 4 daughters. My first three are normal active girls. Adaira is 4 1/2 months. My husband and I are grateful that that we live in a state that does newborn screenings. Adaira has been diagnosed with 621+1G->T, p.Leu818TrpfsX3. She is doing well he height is at 70%, her weight is at 50%. But we had a visit last week due to a fever. And her weight did flatten out.

I am hoping this site might give me the support and the understanding that I am not the only mom with a daughter with CF.
