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.

Time for a break!!

Yesterday I had to take Sax back to Urgent Care.  His eyes had cleared up for a couple days, then gooped up again.  His face was red and swollen up a bit, so I had a hunch, which Dr Mankoti confirmed - Sax has a sinus infection :(  His sinuses are clogged, he's not able to get much out when he blows his nose.  They put him on 3 mg Amoxicillan 2x per day for 14 days.  Vicki is going to check with Dr P to see if he should do it 21 days instead.  He seems to be feeling better already!!  I was told to up his nasal spray too...

He hasn't been eating much, which was confirmed yesterday when he stepped on the scale - down to 13.7 kg :(  All that hard work to get his weight up, and a sinus infection made him lose it all again.  We're hoping it's not going to be too long until he gains it back!!!!  And hopefully he's feeling better before we leave for vacation!!
