November 26th, 2009


I love Alyssa Doane.
She's smart, funny, and brave.
She also has cystic fibrosis.

She HATES long hospital stays.
But she knew last week that she was not feeling well.
She was admitted with 32% lung function.
She also HATES having to do her PFTs--(Pulmonary Function Test).
It makes her nervous.
So nervous.
So-nervous-I-can't walk-down-the-hall kind of nervous.

But Alyssa conquered some wicked fear and blew 43% a day later!
In case you don't know,
that's pretty much putting CF in its place--
telling it to take a hike.

Alyssa has a Make-A-Wish trip to Disney coming up!
And a family who wants her home from the hospital.

Happy Thanksgiving, Alyssa and all of the
folks on 7 today. Nurses, patients, moms and dads.
I'm thankful for everyone who continues
the fight against CF. Alyssa is on the
front lines today.

Love. Love. Love.
