CF Videos

I'm late again for the 2nd month in a row-this time a surprise visit from hubby. It was wonderful! The breathing treatment videos are way too long, so I'll have to figure something else out. In the meantime, I thought I would talk about the digestive side of things.

Samantha takes Creon-10 and Prevacid daily.

For the last 3 years, we have opened up the capsules and dumped them in some kind of food (yogurt, applesauce) and fed it to her. A few weeks ago, she started doing this....

For those of you who have to do this, I don't have to tell you how this has revolutionized our life!

Yes, I'm more than embarrassed by how short I am with Samantha in this video! It's awful! I think I was trying to hurry it along because I was taping, but Samantha was having too much fun watching Timothy ham it up for the camera.

Dear Samantha,

You are such a big girl!! I'm sure you are soooo proud of yourself for taking your enzymes all by yourself!

My son has CF too and he doesn't want to try to do that yet! I'm going to have to have him watch you and maybe then he'll try!

Thanks for sharing Mom!

I remember the days...I used to take my pills in applesause. The kindergarten (preschool) school broke them up and dumped the "particles" into applesauce for me every day at lunch. It's a big accomplishment...and I know you are proud of her. Congrats!!

Thanks for sharing,
