Froggy cultured Pseudomonas again. I'm beyond bummed.

We'll treat it with a month of oral Cipro and two months of inhaled Tobi - then a year of Tobi on/off monthly.

For those of you who aren't familiar with Tobi, it adds on another 40 minutes to Froggy's inhaled treatments in the morning and pm. So she'll be hooked up to her nebulizer over two hours a day. Tell that to a toddler.

I can't believe it.

Oh no. Oh oh oh. I am so sorry. That is so not fair. I have tears in my eyes - I just feel awful for you and for little Miss Froggy. :( So, so, sad.

I wish I was there to help. I really, really wish I was.

I'm so sorry. I know the first time Phoenix cultured I cried for over an hour. These little guys are so strong.
Sending lots of hugs to Froggy and Mama!

I am sorrryy baby! She'll kick it quickly this time too. And have no ill effects.

I'm so sorry Elise. I can't even imagine how hard it must be for a toddler who is obviously so full of life to sit still for over 2 hours a day. Hopefully this will knock the nasty bugs out for good, so that Froggy can just enjoy being an adorable kiddo.

That goes beyond 'sucks' and all the way into 'totally sucks'. I'm so sorry to read this. We're sending all our spare positive mojo your way.

I'm so sorry... This is so incredibly frustrating!

I hope that you are surrounded by the love and support of your family and friends to help you get through this, to summon the reserves you probably don't think you have.

Sending good thoughts from Switzerland...
