We are accepting visitors as well. So if anyone would like to come and see Adam you can call either one of us and let us know. Adam's parents came up last night and we watched the movie, Coraline. It was kind of a creepy movie but it was nice to have some visitors. Also, our neighbors, the Glissmeyer's made us BLT's! They were delicious and we are looking forward to their visit later tomorrow. =)
Anyway...here are some facts about CF since I missed a couple days.
People with CF often develop clubbing of their fingers and toes due to the effects of chronic illness and low oxygen in their tissues.
In 1955, children with CF were not expected to live long enough to attend grade school. Today, the median predicted age of survival for someone with CF is 37 years (38 according to some sources). This means that half will live to be at least 37 years old and half will NOT. That number is constantly on the rise. Although the outlook for people with CF is improving, THERE IS NO CURE.
