Welcome OnlyA!  I too have an 11 year old son with cf, he is my youngest of 4 children.  He goes to see his pulmo for his 3 month checkup this Tuesday the 23'rd.  Hoping for a good visit as he has been healthy except for weight issues and being tired.  Also need to ask about "white patches" appearing on his face.

Hope your son comes home on Monday and again, welcome!

I am asking his pulmo on Tuesday about the white patches.  Doing some research, it could be a number of different things causing it.  I will let you know what his doc says.
 
I am originally from Latrobe, Pa. but have been living in Moore, Oklahoma for about 12 years and have made it my home. I really love it here except for the tornados (I have a storm shelter, so that makes it better, I suppose).

White patches/ spots can be from a number of things. I always get these when my enezymes are low or if the vitamins,zinc or calcium is low. but i dont get them on my tummy they are on my legs. i dont know if its the same thing for all of ya or not but look at ya kids fingernails. do u see white dots/spots there too? if you do im betting its the vitamins but im not a doctor or a kid so it may be diff for them. do any of ya with kids with cf or anyone who has Cf get hair on your tummy? if so what is that from???

Very good check-up yesterday!  He has gained 2 lbs. - now weighs 58lbs.  PFT's 87% (fev1).  The doc. says the white patches are due to hyper pigmentation and that it is more noticeable in the summer time (because of the skin tanning).
He had a throat swab, my son does NOT like throat swabs, he would rather give blood than have a throat swab (anyone else's children this way)?
 
Anyway, hope everyone else is doing well. Last day of school is today for my boys.  One graduated high school, one is in junior high and the youngest is in elementary school.  Oh and my oldest (daughter) just got accepted to OU Health Sciences Center, she is pursuing a career as an OT.
 
Faith/Tricia - I think the hair on tummy is normal - everyone is different - some people are just "hairier" than others.  I thought I read somewhere it is due to hormones?
