My Life. In Pictures: Every Day

For those of you new to my blog through "My Life. In Pictures." you may not know that my daughter Samantha has a chronic, hereditary illness called Cystic Fibrosis. You can read a brief synopsis about the disease here. Even though CF is not curable, there are many drugs and treatments that are lengthening and improving the life of my precious little girl. Even if she "doesn't look sick", we use the following meds every day (and some multiple times):

To find out what others do "every day", go to Everything Except The Grill.

Wow. A dear friend of mine has a niece with CF. I went with them to Disneyland one summer (back in college). He had to do several treatments on her thru the day, but i thought they were mostly physical stuff, tapping.

What a lot of meds. It is good she has symptom-free days.

Wow that is alot. I am so thankful for modern medicine though. I am so glad is symptom free.
What is my life through pictures?

I was wondering what you were going to do for today -- and this pretty much sums it up. But the result -- that smiling girl going "Miss Jenn! Miss Jenn!!" perfection!

What a great "real life" glimpse. I haven't had the time yet this week to read up on of the great blogs I have discovered through this challenge, so I did not know about the CF.
What a lot of meds each day!

I second Kristina's comment about modern medicine. My brother has type 1 diabetes and he wouldn't be alive today without modern medicine.
Gives us even more to be thankful for, huh?
Thanks for visiting my blog!

That is a lot of medicine for such a little girl. She must be a real trooper to take each of those every day. :-)
