Doing Treatments

It's either sleep, the computer or a variety of video games to make the time pass.

lol. Looks like he manages his free time well with treatments. I cannot wait for the time that I don't have to sit next to my 21 month old who is crying and trying to detach herself from the hose so she can play!!!!

I am writing to you regarding the sternum-cartilage issue you asked me about. A few months ago I got an infection and there was lots of coughing (more than normal with my CF). I started to feel pain and strain in my sternum afterward. I talked to my CF doctor about it and he did an exam and said that I had an issue with my cartilage around my sternum. I applied heat to it and it got considerably better. I have noticed since this all started that it feels like my sternum is popping and causing some tightness in my chest. If I lay down on the floor and arch my back and wiggle a little bit it eventually it will pop or shift and the tightness gets better. Not sure I am helping this or hindering things.

One thing I should tell you is that I have the CF related arthritis is all of my joints. I am wondering if the arthritis has moved into my ribs.

The arthritis, popping and pain in all of my joints gets worse when I am fighting an infection. I am currently on Augmentin and some days the arthritis is better and I can move around a bit freer.

I hope this helps. I would talk to your CF doctor....I am finding out that CF affects my body in new and interesting ways .

Great pics. We just started doing computer games and that helps the time pass. It's hard when all they want to do is swing from trees and run around.
