One of the missionaries from our church who is in our area right now has CF. We usually have them over for dinner once a month, but as soon as we heard this we determined that we wouldn't be able to do this with him. However, after some planning, thought, consult with our clinic and consult with this young man, we are going to do it. We are going to eat outside on our patio and have Sarah and him sit at separate tables so they will be at least 10 feet apart at all times. We are hoping this will be a good opportunity for Sarah to have some interaction with an adult with CF and someone who has to go through all the same things she does.

You're brave! Do you know if he has cultured anything recently? When we went on the Champion trip, there was another kid with CF and we did our best to keep them away from each other. I'm sure they were never closer than 10 feet, but we were on a large boat and he was dancing and coughing. Emily was still at least 20 feet from him, but it was so stressful! In fact, when we my dh and I were so stressed about it that it really started to affect her. We were going on the White House tour and they were going to put us in line alphabetically, which would have put us really close. She started crying saying she didn't want to get sick. It made me feel bad! She never cultured anything after the trip, so we were stressing for nothing.

I hope you guys have a good time!

We figured they were always farther apart than at Great Strides. They also occasionally pass in the hall at church but they just smile at each other and walk past. As long as it isn't raining, he's coming again tomorrow night. We can't have him if we can't eat outside.
