Eric and I are doing something new this year with the girls for Christmas we have decided to set aside a certain amount of money and get the girls the Christmas gifts. It's not because we don't have the money but we both think it's time for them to realize it's not about the gift, it's about family and friends and giving. This year we are going to go help at church by serving Christmas dinner we did this for Thanksgiving and it made me feel so good to help others.

Health and Christmas
As I sit here reading some of the blogs that I follow my heart just breaks, why do these kiddo's have to go through what they do? It's not fair.... As I was reading them I thought to my self that I guess we are lucky Courtney hasn't been that sick and has only been on oral antibiotics and hasn't had to be in club med for 2 years don't get me wrong I am not bragging about it because honestly I don't know how we have done it.. She goes to a public school and has since head start and this is her first year being at school all day. I guess we have taught her well about germs and it does help that she has a great teacher and has in the past, and I will be the first to admit that Courtney doesn't always get her 2 treatments in a day do I feel bad and guilty? Hell yes I do but she is very good about taking her time and she has to be in bed by 8:00 P.M. because Monday - Friday my baby is up at 6:00 A.M. for her morning treatments. I can say when she is starting to come down with something we don't miss a treatment. We have clinic on December 7th so I am hoping it's a good one, she goes to the ENT on the 22nd of December. I also tend to look at how much some of the kiddo's weight that have CF and I get so happy because there are some kiddo's out there that are younger, same age and even a little older than Courtney that weight more than Courtney. We have always struggled with her weight and let me tell you this child can eat when she wants to, she can eat a whole bean burrito no onions easy red sauce add tomatoes and sour cream.
