Another CF Clinic Day


Good news, since the last clinic day which was (I think) 3 months ago, Azer gained a pound and grew almost a whole inch! I guess we're doing something right! Doc said his lungs sounded good.

Also, it was Azer's first day to try to do a PFT (Pulmonary Function Test). The results were inconclusive because he didn't breathe out enough. However, everyone said he did very well for his first try. I've had to do this test before, and it really is harder than it looks. The person has to breathe in, and then breathe out as hard and as long as they can, until there is no more air left in your lungs ... until you feel like your lungs are raisins. Well, that's how it felt for me.
