CF check up

Today, I had a CF clinic visit. These clinic appointments are always very long, very slow, and very unpredictable. They usually last about 2-2 1/2 hours, depending on how on time the nurse, dietician, respiratory therapists, and doctor are running. Here's a summary of my appointment:

Height: 62.5 inches
Weight: 95 pounds
PFTs: 58%
IVs: starting January 5th
Culturing: achromobacter, MRSA, and mycobacterium
My "homework": gain more weight, keep up with treatments, keep up with exercise, keep doing what I'm doing

Overall, it was a decent appointment. Here's to fighting CF, one step at a time!
