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.

Going Up Up Up....

Vicki just called. 

I miscalculated. 

When we were in Rochester, his weight was 11.3 kg. 

Today, his weight was 12.9 kg.

What does that mean?

That means we don't have to go back to Rochester until NOVEMBER!!

That means he is GAINING weight!!

That means he went from being in the 12th percentile for weight, all the way up to the 47th percentile!!

That is HUGE!!

That may not seem like much to some people, but for a little man with CF, that's HUGE!!

It means one less month of doctors.

It means one less day Daddy has to take off work for medical reasons.

It means one less drive to Mayo and exposure to the germs.

It means one more step in the right direction.
