Day at the CF Clinic

Tuesday, September 9, 2008


Melissa had her check up today at the CF Clinic. These appointments are so long. We arrived at Children's Medical Center at 10:00am. Once we got checked in the fun began. Melissa had to have a chest x-ray taken and also lab work. I was thinking the worst of my child. She isn't going to stay still for x-rays, but she did great. As for the lab work she did great again. The last time Melissa had to have her blood taken she was 3 months old. Melissa didn't even cry when the man stuck her with that needle. She was getting mad at me for holding her still. By the time we got up to the CF Clinic it was after 11:00. We waited and waited finally around 12:00 Melissa got in. It's really getting harder with her. She doesn't understand why we are sitting around in this small room. It's also in the morning during her nap time. I really wish they had afternoon appointments but they don't. It was 1:30 when we got home.

After all of that Melissa is doing great! She gaining weight and growing like a weed. Her chest x-ray was good as I knew it would be. Since the cold and flu season is starting up Melissa and I will have to go back into hibernation this winter. I think this winter is going to be harder on us both since we have been able to go outside and do just about what ever we want. I don't know what I'm going to do when we have to stay inside all day. I guess I better stock up on some new items for crafts and new video's.
Since the flu season is starting up it's time for all three of us to get our flu shots. I just pray we all stay healthy this winter and Melissa doesn't come down with anything.

That's all for now I just wanted to update you on Melissa.

So glad all went well. That is awesome she did not even cry during bloodwork. She is such a trooper. I can imagine how hard it would be to keep a toddler still that long....poor Melissa just wanted to run and play. You talking about flu shots reminds me that will be something we need to do soon.

Glad it went well! I can't believe cold and flu season already! (Being in 100 degree weather makes you forget what month it is!)

I found your blog thru Nate's blog when he asked for cf bloggers. I think our kids are the same age. My son just turned 15 months. I enjoy reading your blog. If you'd like to see a pic of my son, our blog is acure4lilchris.com
