12 Years

Elena said I blew her mind today when I had her listen, I mean REALLY listen, to the lyrics of "Let it Go" while we applied it to different situations in our life. She said, "Wow, Mom...WOOOOW!"

For the past 12 years it was difficult for us to drive to and away from CF appointments without anxiety. Finally, we are at a place where we have such peace about what comes our way in life and Elena handles all her CF junk with so much grace. 

The Goodrow Gang has been practicing finding happiness in all areas of life, even the ugly parts. Life is too short to dwell on the icky, right?  Today while driving away from the office of Dr. Awesome (Elena's superb CF Doc, Larry McKean), we were smiling, soaking up the sun rays, and singing "Let it Go" at the top of our lungs! 

It was the same old  CF story at the appointment. We will await sputum culture results to see what is bothering her lungs this week besides the weather. Meanwhile, Elena's lung function is up from the mid 70's and is back around 82%. That is a nice surprise!   CF; the continuous unsolved mystery! 

No worries here. We know we are doing everything we can to fight CF as a family. Until the results are in, we will continue to smile, soak up the sun, enjoy the ride, and let it all go.
