To Deb: Oppie and Kevin's mom.
I commend you for stepping in to tell us your story. This story sounds a bit like my history. All within a years time, I lost my grandmother, then my father on Christmas Day, my aunt in jan, followed by post partum depression intensified x 2 babies. My babies became very critical and almost died before they were diagnosed with cystic fibrosis (being very short and to the point here). When they did get diagnosed, I hit the floor, I could not take another bit of bad news. Yes, it did take about
3 yrs to recover from crying every day...but, I did it!! on my own without medication. I am a very strong willed mom and it sounds as tho you are too. Ya know, it was very hard to say that with 2 babies with CF (same age, same time) and how hard it was, I felt no one could walk in my shoes and understand...but, I think you have come pretty close!. Keep up your will to move forward and stay positive. The road is hard and long, but, we can do it!!
If you care to chat by email...just give me a hollar....
Kathy, mom to identical twin boys with CF (9yrs).
