To Be Normal

Dr. Lung leaves Madeline with a bad taste in her mouth.After approximately one bazillion calls to her office, Mike and I finally got a hold of Dr. Lung. She had Maddie's Cystic Fibrosis Sweat Test results in her evil little hand. If you remember, anything under 30 is considered Normal, 30-60 is Borderline, and above 60 is Abnormal. Maddie's test came back at a 10. Normal. In fact, Dr. Lung even conceded, "I do not think she has Cystic Fibrosis." No shit, Sherlock!

Rejoice!

Oh thank God, that is really fantastic news. My cousin Teresa died of CF when she was 19, it is such a horrible, awful disease. I was literally having anxiety stomach-flips whenever I thought of you guys having to face that, and I don't even know you in real life. I am so unbelievably relieved that Maddie got the all-clear.

(Btw, my other cousin wrote a tribute to Teresa here after she passed away. I still can't read it without crying.)

I'm doing the stalker bit tonight instead of sleeping. Reading lots of your posts in different places. It is taking me on quite a journey, as I click from one link to another to another site to another.

Not all written by you but all on the same theme: trust your instincts as a parent.

Love ya, babe.
