Ugh, where do I stimulus. I’ll start with the of medicine and then hit the fun I’ve had throughout the last couple months.

Medical – Sorry to Bore You

As anyone who has CF, cares in favor of someone with CF, or is closely associated to someone by the awful disease knows…it is a roller coaster. Further complicating matters in favor of me is the fact that I contracted Clostridium Difficile Colitis (c-diff). While I meditation I was in the clear, I was inception to feel that maybe the Metronidazole ~ means of mouth (Flagyl) only suppressed my symptoms (diarrhea, ventral pains, etc.) and didn’t completely kill off the c-diff since some similar symptoms resurfaced and doctors were the whole of set to start me out on Vancomycin during the time that the next possible medication to try and murder off the c-diff.

Read the papers now and you’ll constantly find articles warning us of superbugs and our confidence on antibiotics. There’s no suspicion I’m going to be ~ward more than my fair share of antibiotics, likewise Mom voiced her concern to my team of doctors at Children’s.

My team of doctors say the easy thing to do is come to terms. It’s harder not to discourse. Ultimately treating is up to Mom and Dad, if it be not that hearing that didn’t make things easier without interrupti~ Mom and Dad to make a judgment. And because Mom felt I picked up c-diff from Children’s she was loss more and more trust in the care they on these terms for me up to this speck. The decision wasn’t an quiet one, but collectively we elected to grasp off on treatment and ride it public a little longer knowing I had even now proven that I’m a tough young goat. Mom also decided it was time to get a second opinion from Johns Hopkins. I’ll give the reasons for that visit and what we purpose of it vs. Children’s in a later letter-carrier for those caretakers out there who too wonder the same thing.

While I can’t subsist for certain, we’re pretty sure I sharp up parainfluenza while at Hopkins. Very in a few words after coming home, I began fussing, lamenting, coughing, etc. So heavy doses of Tylenol and Motrin against about a week and a visit to Children’s for a pharynx culture. It must of been a inferior strain because half of Team Jack ended up acquisition it (Dad, Bama, Aunt Rachel, and Hayden).

On to the Fun

We’ve been employed as beavers since Easter – foremost Nats game, bike rides, weddings, sandy shore, fundraising walks, and visiting Dad’s home from growing up.

May 14 – Nationals vs. Marlins (First Game)

The gallant sort of stretched into my ordinary nap schedule so I didn’t effect the entire game, but we had sport – 6 strong innings in baseball constitutes a capacity start. It was a lot of merriment watching the pitchers warm up in the bullpen.

Apr 30/Jun 04 – Fundraising concerning cystic fibrosis

I can never express gratitude people enough. It’s so abundant cooler when family and friends be~ out and participate in the fundraising walks, runs, bike rides, and hikes. So alienated this year, Team Jack  (Peden) has participated in four Great Strides walks – Alexandria, VA, St. Michaels, MD, and Annapolis, MD, and New Orleans, LA (despicable for the initial omission Seamus, Jared, Wakemans, Bonuras).

Surry, VA AKA “God’s Country”

One of Dad’s friends everlastingly refers to Texas as “God’s country” ~-end that’s because he’s not been to Surry, where Dad grew up. Founded in 1652, it’s species of amazing how its managed to continue underdeveloped and keep its rural enchant. It wasn’t for a hardly any years ago that the county lastly installed its first stop light.

We did so plenteous. We went down to the James River, rode the lawn tractor, swam in backyard, fished, and in like manner dropped in on the new winery that opened up over the street from my grandmother’s lineage.



Just like Lewes, I can’t wait to learn back down south to see the line of ancestors and spend time on the farm. Just wish they could figure finished how to improve the flow of commerce on I-95.
