About Lil' Chris

Christy at Color Me Healthy had a great idea for all us bloggers to give a quick update on our lil' CFers.

  1. Lil' Chris was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis(CF) at 2 weeks old. He is now almost 21 months old and you would never know he had CF by the looks of him.

  2. He now has a 3 week old lil' sister who does not have CF and is not even a carrier(Thank God).

  3. Lil' Chris goes to the CF clinic every 3 months for a check up.

  4. He hasn't had a bad visit at the clinic yet(Thank You LORD!!!!)

  5. He gets a cough every now and then and takes an antibiotic for 21 days to get rid of it.

  6. He has only taken Augmentin, Ceftin, and Sulfatrim for antibiotics.

  7. He is not, nor ever has been, on any nebs.

  8. He has not had any sinus problems yet, and hopefully never will.

  9. His lungs are always clear, but he started the Vest when he was about 11 months old.

  10. Before he got the Vest, we used to do manual CPT where we would pound on his chest, back, and sides for 2 minutes each, 2 times a day.

  11. He is on the Vest 2 times a day for 20 minutes each now.

  12. He takes three Creon 5 enzymes with every meal, and 2 with snacks.

  13. He takes 2 ML of Vitamax once a day.

  14. He also takes 1 Prevacid solutab(15mg) once a day to help the enzymes work better.

  15. When he was a baby, he had acid reflux. That is why he started the Prevacid.

I'm M, his mommy, his daddy is Chris or Big Chris(hence the Lil' Chris;), and his lil sister is Ayla.

We have been very fortunate these past couple of years. He has only gotten 2 colds(and I think the last one wasn't even a cold, I think he was just teething;) We know this good health won't last forever, but we can only hope and pray that it will and he will grow big and strong and live a long healthy, normal life.

I can't think of anything else right now. If anybody has any questions about Lil' Chris, please don't hesitate to ask. I'm going to put his med info on my side bar soon for all to see all the time like Olivia's mom did. I think everyone should do this on their blogs, so we can compare;)


PS. Thanks Christy, this was a great idea:)
