Cystic Fibrosis Sucks

Sorry for the crude title, but no other words come to mind.  My beauitful niece was born November 23rd.  At her 2 week check up, our family learned she has Cystic Fibrosis.  Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide).  As you can imagine, this was a complete shock.  She did not show any symptoms prior to the test results being revealed.  I took a month off from blogging while we learned more about this diagnosis.  My sister has been amazing in researching and discovering tons of information on CF.  Check out this website to learn about CF.
