Hi everyone. My daughter found the Mayo web site and that led me to this site. I am glad she did. Her son is going to be tested in Feb. for CF, the sweat test. He is a snotty little fella and only 18 mos. old. Last October he had his adnoides (SP?) removed. His Dr. at Nemours said that he had so much mucous in his lungs that he couldn't get all of it out. He tried!, but too much. He has been diagnosed with Chronis sinusitis, asthma, has allergies to eggs(deathly allergic to these), mold, dust mites, and one other thing I can't remember. He is not a little guy either, he is in the 98 th percentile for his height and weight. He has just started to walk at 18 mos. He didn't seem to want to put his feet on the floor. Also, he constantly takes off his shoes or socks and does not want them on. He loves for us to massage his feet, then sometimes in his car seat he will pull at his feet and legs and just holler. His feet are kinda squared, flat footed and fat.
Anyway all of this has my daughter fretting and worrying the worst. I am trying to stay optimistic. Alan, if you are there could you comment on any of these sysmptoms/problems I mentioned? I would appreciate hearing from you. The ENT PEDS Dr. Roy said it was just to rule it out. Seems kinda funny that he wants to rule it out when he has requested it so easily and then other docs don't seem to request it that easy. How did you know your daughter had CF? Any sure signs? Thank you so much for sharing.
