Well Breezy was just diagnosed in September 2008 and naturally that is when all of her treatments began. Well I'm sure when your a child four months seems like a lifetime but the reality of all of the multiple daily treatments hit her the other day. Breezy is only four years old but her mental age is much older. So when she questions us we have to answer carefully because she knows when we are talking to her like a child. The other day she had what I like to call a mini meltdown. She asked Nate and "I why do I had to do my treatments forever" and went on to tell us that she wanted to be finished when she was nine years old. All we could tell her was that the treatments will get better and shorter over time. Why? because there are lots of people working on a way to make daily life easier for people with CF. But that is all we could think of to tell her.
So my question to you is have you ever been presented with this question? And how did you respond?
