Good Clinic Appointment

Last Wednesday, Froggy had her CF clinic appointment. Good news all around!

Weight: 30lbs (about 18th percentile). We're working on increasing it, but she's just genetically a stringbean!

Height: 38 1/3 inches

Pulse oximeter- 99 percent

Her lungs sound clear, she doesn't have a cough, her lungs are POIFECT!!!

And we just got her sputum culture back and drum roll please...NO Pseudomonas, NO Staph, just the normal flora. Woo Hoo!!!

We finished her two months of the inhaled antibiotic, and even though she cultured negative for Pseudomonas, we're going to continue every other month of inhaled antibiotic - to fight it aggressively. We are sooooo enjoying our shorter treatments. Good, good news!!!

Yay! for shorter treatments!!

Good news! Great photos!

Why do THEY get to be the stringbeans?? Can't I just give her and Azer my "extras"? I'd trade the genetic "stringbean" for this ... extra ... anyday. ;)
