Team Lex Express 2014
Monkey in his special green shirt that identifies him as a cfer. People with cf can pass dangerous bacteria to each other and are supposed to stay away from each other.
Today I got the most wonderful news since I found out Bug (Monkey's baby brother) didn't have cf. After waiting anxiously for almost a week, I finally heard from the cf clinic about Monkey's last culture. It grew absolutely NO Pseudomonas!! I was so ready to fight for more aggressive treatment that I almost didn't believe what I was hearing. I asked her 3 times: "none?", "all 3 strands are gone?", "even the mucoid strand didn't grow?" I think I was floating on a cloud for a while after that phone call. I wanted to tell everyone I saw, even strangers!
This little battle was just the first of many lung damaging monsters we will have to fight. It was really scary for me and made everything far too real. I just wish I could freeze time until that cure comes. I know it's just around the corner, I just wish it would hurry up and get here.
