My 6 1/2 month old, is growing so quick in size...he is our little chuncker. I take him to the doctor today because he has always been congested and wheezing since the day he has been born....In December he has started with repeating ear infections. We went to the ENT and they schedule the surgery for tomorrow....well, now it is cancelled because of my son's breathing.

The Dr today tells me that they think our son has Cystic Fibrosis. I am now a nervous wreck. I don't know what to do. We are going to see a pulmonologist at CHOP but that appointment isn't for another 2 1/2 months. I am just so confused....May be someone out there can help????
