Chloe was born in April 2006. She was beautiful, she cried, ate and pooped a lot and as my first I thought this was normal. However as she grew all she did was eat from the moment she woke up until the time she went to bed, but was undeweight and had a constant upset stomach, along with this she had regular chest infections, she suffered from bronchitis and was in HDU for pneumonia when she was two, we thought we were going to lose her and asked for a specialist, this lead to a diagnosis of cystic fibrosis at 3 years old.
Since diagnosis Chloe's health has improved with all the medication she has to take in order to keep well, she takes over 20 tablets daily along with 3 nebuliser treatments, two rounds of physio, inhalers and high calorie supplements. She is currently on 2 week hospital stays every 12 weeks. This is to keep her as well as we can, her current lung function is only between 30 - 40% so we are working hard to try and improve that with extra physio sessions. She juggles all this with school and is about to move up into secondary school.
Her nan has kindly put her name forward to receive a quilt and I know Chloe would be so grateful for something special to take to all her hospital stays.
