These are the reasons I needed your prayers and good thoughts. This is my granddaughter Lynzie and her sons. Max is the oldest and Luke just born , here in this photo was his day of birth.
Mark, Lynzie, Max and Luke , a young family just starting. The hospitals do more tests on newborns than I ever knew about. Some things were off in Luke's tests. The parents had to take him in for tests his first week.
Here he is at 16 days old. It breaks our hearts to learn that Luke has been diagnosed with Cystic Fibrous. He had the sweat tests yesterday. Sweat tests are for the amount of sodium and chloride produced in the sweat. It will be 2 to 5 times more than normal in a person with C.F. The doctor said he has two mutant genes, one common and one rare. He may still have another tests later.
Cystic Fibrous causes thick mucus build up in the lungs, where bacteria can grow, causing all sorts of lung issues. It also interferes with digestion . Causing the child to not gain weight as they should.There are medicines to help with all of the symptoms.
Max (big brother) will have to be tested also. I ask...beg of you all to please keep this family in your prayers and good thoughts.
One of Mark's sisters-in-law take photos...she took this sweet shot of Max kissing Luke. I am grateful for all the prayers and well wishes. Our family will all stand by this wonderful little family, and help care for them. Thank you all so much. XO
