My mother called me a little while ago crying because my young cousin Chelsea is loosing her battle with Cystic Fibrosis. And her poor father as you can imagine is just devastated. He has been a single parent to his 2 children since they were toddlers. The mother is no good...no good at all...shes not even with her daughter now in this time of need. (that should say it all ) Over the years her disease has gotten worse despite doing everything and anything medically possiable. My cousin even took the kids and moved to NC because there is a great Cystic Fibrosis hospital down there. Well last year they told him she had to be put on the lung donor list while she was still strong enough to withstand the surgery. Last year she had a double lung transplant...and she really seemed to thrive for a while after. She gained some weight and started to feel better. Now her body is rejecting the lungs and she also has some sort of fungal infection in her lungs. The hospital told my cousin there is nothing more that can be done for her and to bring her home with hospice and make her as comfortable as possible. We are all just so devastated..shes a beautiful 16yr child who will never get to grow up. My 95 year old grandmother is heartbroken...she already lost a son this December to cancer..now her grandaughter..Shes saying things like she shouldnt have lived so long to see this..your children and grandchildren should'nt pass before you do....UGH! i wanna bawl too! Life is so sad and hard sometimes...it really is. Also i want to say that Make-A-Wish is just awesome..her wish was for a beautiful bedroom..all pinks and purples..and a big comfy bed. And they came through for her, she got her wish. so i thank those people that made that possible for her. Here she is last summer visiting my house after the lung transplants and looking so good. her father is standing behind her with my mother. My/her grandmother next to her and then her brother.
