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.

Happy Fall!!

Happy Fall to all!!  It's in full swing, the cold has set in and is here to stay.  I haven't updated in a month, but not much has been happening.  Sax has been doing well.  He's had 2 ear infections, but that's it.  No colds, no coughs.  The last few days he's been getting crabby when we nebby and vest him.  I think his ears are bothering him a little because he's putting his fingers in his ears or covering his ears when he's been vesting. :-(  I have been debating if I should take him in to have his ears checked, but we're going to Mayo on Tuesday for his next series of checkups.  We are seeing the ENT, along with all of our normal doctors and nurses.  We have to be there by 9, but we may have to leave early.  We're being forcasted sleet and freezing rain - I don't know if I'm ready for that!!!  Especially with me driving back and forth to Owatonna on Monday nights for my night class... 35 is a BAD one for winter driving!!!

Sax seems to  be keeping his weight up pretty well!!  He's started eating a little more food, and he LOVES his PediaSure.  He's chubbing up a little bit.  We have to ask our doctors about his diet - I think we're seeing the dietitian too.  The WIC nurse has been telling me not to give him so much butter, that he should be getting more canola oil.  I don't think we have anything to worry about with the butter.  I'm going to ask about it anyway.  I'll post after his appointment on how things go.

I'll leave with a few Halloween pics....
