CF Dr. K is leaving;(

We just got a letter in the mail saying that Lil' Chris' CF doctor will be moving away to be closer to his family;-( He has been with Lil' Chris from DAY ONE!!! He was the one who passed me a tissue as he gave me the worst news of my life...Lil' Chris' diagnosis of Cystic Fibrosis. Going to the clinic won't be the same without him:( He was such a nice doctor and always made sure he found an answer to all my questions. I will forever think of him when I think back to when Lil' Chris was diagnosed. He will always have a special place in my heart.

A new CF doctor is coming to our clinic now. She has over 15 years of CF clinical care and CF research experience. I'm not sure if she is getting all of Dr. K's patients or not. I guess we'll have to wait and see what they say when we go to clinic next month. I'll make sure to get a pic of Lil' Chris and Dr. K before he leaves. The letter says he will be moving in mid 2010, but you never know, it might be sooner. I just hope that whatever doctor Lil' Chris gets does as good a job as Dr. K did. Lil' Chris has done amazingly well for his first 2 1/2 years. It's all thanks to Dr. K!!! He will truly be missed;(

That is sad to read. I'm sure it will be different having a new doctor. I'll be praying that you get a new one that's just as wonderful as your old one!

Sawyer's CF doctor quit seeing patients to do research...while that is wonderful it was so sad for us. He was a wonderful doctor who just fit us so well...we have had a very hard time adjusting to the new docs. I really don't like either one of them...its been very hard. I hope you have much better luck with the new doc than we did!
