I wish you well. Just keep in mind that the CF gene is relatively rare and that your chances of carrying it are small, and that the chances that your child will have two copies of it are even smaller. Try not to dwell on the less likley scenarios. This must be doubly hard given your uncertain military status. Keep your chin up.

I just sent a prayer up to the Big Man on your behalf. Hang in there. I watched a medical show the other day that showed that a lady was carrying a baby with CF. The Doctors did an operation while the baby was still in her womb and said it was sucessful.

I think a lot of us have been through similar; MDs ethically required to inform you/scare the shit out of you. I can tell you this about CF: it's quite manageable now, for whatever small consolation that gives you at a time like this. I know, like most prospective new parents, you want a perfect child, and my prayer for you and your wife is just that, as well as the strength t deal with this time of trial and not knowing. Let us know. shooter

With both my two boys, birth defects were always a big concern for me. I spend many a night praying. I'm not sure why I was so scared, just a normal reaction I guess. Don't get too worked up before you find out the results of the tests. Hang in there.

Sherm- You're with 2/25, right? Have you heard of any other USMCR callups yet? Edited to add: I'm a retard. I thought you meant you were getting called up AGAIN. Well, I wish you both the best. My fiance had a rough time with our first. He was 10 weeks early and spent 59 days in intensive care. He's doing great now, but it was a rough road. God Bless.

You are on our prayer list Jon...
Link Posted: 12/11/2002 5:17:33 PM EDT
Sherm, I will light a candle for you. I have an Aunt that has 2 CF boys. A 2 year old and a 5 month old. Her and her husband are carriers. The children had to be operated on to remove part of the intestine ( I think ) and they have to take medicine to suplement thier enzymes. If they are operated on young enough it will not go into the lungs in most cases. Other than that they are normal kids. They are active and very smart. Well for a 2 year old and a grub anyway. The doctors they have are also telling them that in 10 years there may not be that much of a problem for their children if research continues.

Sherm, You are on our Church prayer list now...the intercessory prayer group at Church prays every morning from 5:00 to 7:00 a.m.. These wonderful people are faithful and pray fervently for all kinds of needs. God does care about our lives, and I believe he answers prayer. Just keep the faith my friend, [b][blue]NAKED[/blue][/b]
