Clinic 03/12/13 - Thank you Doc McStuffins!

Thanks to a slight obsession with Doc McStuffins, we got through yesterday's CF Clinic visit with all smiles and no tears!  

Meet "baby."  
E was giving "baby" a check up while the doctors, nurses, respiratory therapist and dietitian were giving her a check up.  They checked "baby's" temperature, then E's temperature.  "Baby" opened her mouth to get a throat swab, then E opened her mouth to get a throat swab.  
Let's hope it works again next time when we do labs and x-ray.

She hasn't had a cough since the beginning of February and even managed to stay healthy when I had bronchitis last week (thanks to Grandma and Bill for keeping her at their house)!

She is up to almost 26 lbs now and is 32 in tall.  They had to double check her height because she hasn't grown much since her last visit.  This isn't the first time that has happened.  She's just a little shorty!

Overall, great appointment!

Our 2014 fundraising efforts are in full swing!
We have put together our Great Strides team and already have several people spreading the word and raising money.  We are doing a t-shirt fundraiser and selling our 2014 Emery's Angels t-shirts.  We are selling some really cute hand-stamped jewelry, and we are also planning a clay shooting tournament in June!  Lots going on!

Thank you so much to everyone who is working on fundraising and to everyone who has donated.  
You really are Emery's Angels!
