Taking a Break

Thanks to Lil' Chris's Mom at A Cure for Lil Chris and Courtney at The Tale of Olivia's 65 Roses for this blog award:

It's for having a blog that "shows great attitude or gratitude". Truthfully, these days I'm having a difficult time with that. The internet is a double edged sword. On the one hand, I've found so much support and comfort in the CF community but on the other hand, some of the things I read are so sad that it's hard to stay hopeful. This week, for some reason, has been particularly hard because there has been news of several young, very young, people with CF who have lost their battle. I'm trying to stay strong for Seamus but it's very hard.

I've decided to take a couple days off from blogging and reading anything related to CF. I know there is a lot more to our life than this disease and I need to clear my head and think about those other things.

Hi, so sorry I haven't checked on your blog in a while....somehow I lost it...ugghhh. I'm glad his endoscopy went so well. I'm just curious as to why he has had so many? You don't have to answer if you don't want to.
Also, it is ok to take a break from the "CF world" really can get overwhelming. I feel the same way. This week has been one of those weeks. I was supposed to give a small talk to 250 teenagers at a private school on Thursday. Zoe was with me, it was kind of a 'meet Zoe-learn about CF' thing....I got about 4 sentences into it and couldn't go any further....I started crying...had to give the mic back to our CFF lady. Some weeks are just harder. Hang in there....
Hugs to you,
