  Hello!  I do not have CF, but someone quite clo0se to me does.  He is 32 now.  I am involved with his healthcare very intimately, as I have been his transportation and friend for a long time.  After while....going into the Dr's office's passed the time quicker than waiting in the lobby.  I am a paraplegic myself, so I understand many of the complications involved with his disease: Having had my own fair share of osteomialytis with MRSA (an infection he gets frequently, requiring IV vanco, and hospitalization).  I understand him to be a tough case as well....with the enzymes, anti's, percution, toby's, breathing treatments, and nutritional "boost" suppliments.  Good news is he has no greater challenges, nor does he visit the hospital now, anymore than he did when he was 18.  Most of that is because of his own failure to commit to a structured and scheduled treatment agenda.  He will completely skip treatments for DAYS at a time....and eventually it always lands him in the hospital with a respiratory infection....ussauly MRSA.  Anyway, while he is obsessed with X-box, and would never take time to visit this thread.....I would be very happy to answer what I can, and nag him when I am at a loss.  I assume'd that you were interested in knowing the toll CF takes on a person in time, especially at the mid-30's'ish time, as that is often critical. 

Hope I helped a smidge.  JJ
