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.

Asking for a Prayer
Everything went well with Saxon's surgery yesterday, but since it was so late he ended up being inpatient. We're still at the hospital, I'll update about the surgery and his new meds when we get home, but I'm asking for prayers for Sax. A bladder scan shows that, even though he hasn't peed yet, that his bladder is full. He had a barely damp pull up last night and, in spite of IV fluids, still hasn't gone today. He also hasn't eaten and has barely drank anything. He won't be allowed to go home until he eats, drinks, and pees. Please keep him in your prayers. We'll all anxious to go home - no one moreso than Sax..
