Just an update

Well, It's been a while so I thought I've give a little update.  Things have been going fairly well around the house.  It's starting to get busy since the holidays are coming!  Christmas shopping, planning trips, working, writing Christmas letters... you know the drill.  Christmas is my favorite time of year aside from the weather.  I need to move to the southern hemisphere so that Christmas is smack dab in the middle of summer.  Then all would be well with the world! 

Well, we had CF clinic on the 9th and it went... ok... no one is pleased with Logan's weight.  They are starting to consider alternative therapies.  The GI docs and Nutritionist said that if his weight is not significantly increased next month, then we will start with an NG tube (nasal gastric tube) for a couple of weeks so we can pump in extra calories.  If that is not sufficient, then we will progress to a G Tube.  I don't know that this was my "worst fear" but I was certainly hoping to avoid it.  I have heard many people say that it was the best decision they ever made (getting a G tube) but I think i'm afraid that it will make the disease more real.  I don't want to feel like CF is "beating" me.  Up till now, it's all be preventative care so I've been able to remain positive.  I am afraid that when it becomes less preventative, and more necessary, I will feel as though I have failed.  I know that's stupid but I must not be the only one out there that does/has felt like that.  I'm still fairly new to CF so maybe I'm still in the denial stage... I don't know...

Anyway, enough pity party.  I'm getting excited for baby's first Christmas!  It's coming up fast!  We are lucky enough to have family that is coming to visit us over the holidays so that should be nice as well.  We also made some time to get Christmas photos done and they turned out super cute!

Well, everyone here is currently healthy so that is also a huge blessing!  Hoping to keep it that way!  I will try to get in another one or two posts before Christmas comes along.  So, for now, I will not type out my Holiday greetings to everyone.  Hope you all are well and do not feel stressed in the upcoming flurry of the season!  God Bless.
