This is Saxon, our energetic little man who was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when he was a week old. We gathered together many friends and family members and created Strides for Sax. Our mission is to raise money and create awareness for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to find a cure for cf. This is all about Sax and our team's efforts for the cause. As of the creation of this blog, Saxon is 21 months old, has been hospitalized several times for pneumonia, and had undergone 3 surgeries since his first birthday.

Did someone say bubbles?
The weather has been beautiful the last couple of days!! We have been taking full advantage of it and working Saxon's lungs at the same time. I decided it was time to start sorting out and getting rid of a bunch of stuff in the basement, so I turned Scrappy Man loose in the yard. He LOVED it!! The pollen count has gone down, so he's not as stuffy as he had been. He has started wheezing again, but after talking to Vicki yesterday, we have him back on Pulmozyme. Sax is getting a nebby of albuterol in the morning and a nebby of Pulmozyme at night. He's been a little wheezy though. I'm not too concerned since he is getting his meds and he's plenty active. If he gets lethargic then I'll start worrying. He found out how to open his sister's bottle of bubbles too!! hahaha!! Bubbles are almost as good as balloons!!
