CFer Blog Roll Call

While we drive home, here's something to do...

If you are a CFer, or a caregiver of a CFer, AND you blog on a consistent basis about CF, please, consider leaving a comment with your blog address as well as a brief description of who you are/your CFer is and what your blog is about (you don't have to include the description if you don't want to).

I'll put all of the blogs together in one post, later to be used as another resource for those looking to connect with other CFers and learn more about the disease.

I'm specifically looking for blogs that write about CF from an experiential basis. Please, ONLY post if it is your blog...don't post somebody else's blog address. And, please, don't comment under this blog if this doesn't apply to you so that we can keep the comments on point.

Thanks!

Nate

Taylor and Devon said...

Hey there...Do not have a "CF" blog, but do have a blog for my children. Hausband is diagnosed with CF at age 45. Both children are carriers, and we are currently waiting to see CF specialist in the city for both children and husband. My name is Kathy and my husband is Jim. Our children are Taylor and Devon. Jim is not accepting things real well at this point on the topic of CF, but he is really trying to do as the Drs say. Again I will give you are blog site but my husband would not allow any CF info on it at this point, but I would love to have others to talk to....

Taylor and Devon said...

Nate...can't figure out how to give address, not real inclined to computers...email is kathyrossiter@aol.com

Hello,

Ok, I have been following your story for aages and ages.. well ok.. since I found it in January.

I have CF too. I'm 34 and I have a son who is 'CF Free'. He is 10 but has the mind of a 40 year old. I also have a dog and a complex about the width of my feet.

My blog isn't ALL about CF so maybe it isn't what you are looking for but it does allude to it here and there. It is mainly about silly snippets of my life and family or just random thoughts. Or tales of hospital appointments or something.

I tend to make black jokes about it all, which isn't everyones cup of tea, but it is just my way.

I also would like to add my best wishes to you all. You seem like a fantastic family. Being a Mum is amazing and I love every single when I wake up and see my son. I was so excited for you all when I saw you were all able to go home.

I will go now and take my stretched feet with me.

Take care.

Jayne

Tracy said...

Hi Nate, I love your blog and read it every day. I'm the mother of a CF child, she'll be 12 yrs old in August and her name is Molly.
My blog is titled A Simple Country Life, it isn't all about CF but I do occasionally post CF stuff there, especially when we're at the hospital...blogging is a great way to keep family and friends informed in what is going on day to day.
Take care ...

Tara said...

Ni Nate,

I'm Tara, 32w/CF from California. I gave birth to twins in 2004 and I blog about my daily life raising twins. When CF is above and beyond the 3 hours of treatments I do a day (say...a hospital stay or even IVs at home) then I blog about CF too.

I won't be offended if you think it's too much of a mommy blog to include in your CF list.

I am not a CF blogger in anyway but I have just spent much of the last 24 hours catching up on your entire blog after finding it on the blogger awards. Thank you for sharing this story with all of us, you will be in my prayers, and I am strengthened by your constant faith in Christ.

I'm 29, have CF and received a double lung transplant 8 weeks ago. I started my blog almost 2 years ago to follow my journey towards transplant and beyond. I live in the UK and came across your blog on a post on the CF forum and have been following your journey since.

Julie said...

Hi, I'm Julie and my 2 year old son, Seamus, has CF. Seamus spends a lot of his time in doctors' offices and hospitals (he's been admitted 13 times). I started my blog because I didn't want that to be the only thing he remembers about his childhood. It's called MuggaBugga.blogspot.com because when he was just starting to talk he loved to say "Mugga Bugga".

Cindy said...

AWESOME!!! I have been thinking for months that somebody needs to put together a big CF blogroll.

My name is Cindy. I am almost 20, have CF, and blog regularly. I write a lot about the various aspects of living with CF-- lately I write especially about all the challenges that come with marriage and CF as I am getting married in 2 months.

My link is beingcindy.blogspot.com.

Cara said...

Hi Nate! What a good idea! I'm Cara, a 26 year old CFer. I blog about once a week, but lately my poor blog has been a bit neglected b/c we are in the process of remodeling an 80 year old home. I was thisclose to making my blog private, but you've made me decide to leave it public. I love meeting other people in the CF community!

Jennifer said...

I'm so looking forward to reading this list. My CF blog is fairly new, but I'm putting up older entries from my other blogs right now to catch people up. My blog is http://65rosesinbloom.blogspot.com and it's about my CF life. Right now I'm trying to list for a double lung and liver transplant, which hasn't been done yet in my home state of Massachusetts.

Taylor and Devon said...

Nate...I re-read your blog and i do dont blog on a consistant basis about CF, so I guess I need to be excluded. thanks anyway...

Toria said...

Hi, I'm Toria I'm 23 I have CF and have six month old son called Edward. I've had a blog for a while across various sites with limited success however I am trying really hard to keep my current one up to date.

It's not specifically about CF, in-fact at the moment I'm having so much fun I don't have time for CF, however (if history is anything to go by )I'm sure in darker and harder moments it will come more to the fore.

My blog addy is http://an-antithesis-of-sorts.blogspot.com/

I think this is an EXCELLENT idea Nate, just reading the replies makes me realize once again that I'm never going through this alone.

Love to this bizzare CF community of ours and of course your wonderful family xox

I'm Tiffany Christensen--34 (almost 35, yay!) year old CFer who has had 2 double lung transplants. My blog is sickgirlspeaks.blogspot.com and I post about things related to life with illness, my life post-transplant and Patient Advocacy.

Thanks for doing this Nate! I have been thinking of Trisha all so often since I heard she had to go back into Duke. I'm so relieved that this looks like a small bump and you get to go home!

Much Love!

Karen said...

I am a 40 year old with CF diagnosed at the age of 2. I have kept a caringbridge site for about a year. It is a journey through a lung transplant evaluation and how that fit in my life as a wind instrument player on a worship team. Thank you both for having the bravery to share your story. I just read somewhere on the internet yesterday about a young man with CF who is post-transplant....he accepted Christ and is going to church because of the peace and openness he saw in your lives:):) That is awesome!

Deron Arnold said...

I am 36 with CF and awaiting double lung transplant (currently at the top of the list). I've been told I'm also at signifiantly higher than usual risk for lymphoma because of my EBV status, so I can relate a little as to what your wife is going through.
My blog is about God, life, CF, and lung transplant.

Kerry said...

Okay, my blog is fairly new. I am a CFer who's 31 years old, with two kids (11 years old and 2 years old) and I am waiting for a double lung transplant in Michigan. My blog address is based off my fave song (thousand foot krutch) "breathe you in." It is breathingYouin@blogspot.com. I am praying for you all, Nate, Tricia and Gwyn and always will.

Looking forward to checking out other blogs!

Froggymama said...

What a fabulous idea Nate!

I have a daughter "Froggy" with CF. She's 2 and a half.

I'm a writer and stay-at-home. I've put my career on hold to keep my kiddo healthy and to be her super Froggymama and advocate. My husband is in school to become a Respiratory Therapist, and he is a wonderful Froggydadda.

I blog almost everyday and sometimes it's the only thing that keeps me sane.

I think about you guys everyday and keep you in my prayers. Take care. Elise(Froggymama)

Chatty Family said...

Hi! I am a mom of two girls and a boy. My son is 2 and has CF. I have a blog that can be added to the "family" category. I write about our family happenings and CF to keep my family updated and friends aware. Like some others, I'm not sure if you want a family blog, so use it at your disgression. We are trying to keep CF from being the center of our lives for as long as possible. Thank you for your blog and for sharing your family with us. www.chattyfam.blogspot.com

LJ said...

Hi, I am 27 y.o and have good ol CF. I am 8 years post tx and yes there are many bumps in the road but I am truely greatful for being able to live the best 8 years of life with my husband that were almost taken away from me. But with the help of God guiding the doc's at Duke, I was able to breath again...God is good all the time! God bless you and your family you have been in my prayers since the blog started:)

Blankenship Babbles said...

Hi Nate...Not sure we would be one you would want to include but we blog often on our fundraising for CF...and started a blog for our Great Strides team to keep in touch on...it's www.jeffsentourage.blogspot.com

My name is Mandy...my identical twin sister (Sam) and I started this blog in memory of our brother, Jeff...or as we called him, Bubba. He lived 26 wonderful years with CF, found the love of his life, had 3 amazing furbabies (that were his life) and along the way touched numerous lives with his courage and dedication to finding a cure. Our brother was on the double transplant list, but didn't make it...but we know he is smiling down on us and is proud of us for keeping his dream for a 'Cure Found' alive. We talk about all the amazing times we had with him here on our blog, and about the things we feel on a regular basis without him in our everyday lives. It is amazing how every CFer has a presence about them that is unlike any other...we have been following you and Tricia for over a year now...and you have given us HOPE. Thank you for that...

Leslie said...

Great idea! We have two beautiful daughters. Our oldest is 5 w/o CF and our youngest is 3 with CF. We are also in the process of adopting. So our blog is about both of our children, including the CF updates. It is my desire for others to learn more about the disease but also know that God is in control of it and our lives. I have already been able to connect with a few other CFers or mom's of CFers, through blogging, which has been very neat! And your blog (Nate) has been such an encouragement to me (and many of my friends and family)! Thanks so much!
Our blog is: www.schellenbergs3as.blogspot.com

My name is Jessica and I'm a 21 year young CFer who is getting closer to needing a transplant. I'm from Tampa FL and a full-time student at USF who blogs once in a while, usually about my health.

Hi Nate, your blog is great - I read it all the time and have followed your story for a while now. I am almost 30 and have CF. My blog tells a story of my desire to have a family with details of all the problems I encountered along the way. Sadly things did not work out for me. I stopped writting the blog last year but it may be interesting to anyone else out there with CF who discovers there partner is a carrier!

Hi, What a good idea, Nate! I'm 30, have CF and have been listed at UCLA for a little over two years now for a dbl lung tx. I started my blog as a way to keep family and friends updated when I get the tx, but I also blog regularly about CF and my blessed life with the best husband, family, and friends a girl could ever ask for!!!

Hi I'm Salty and Sweet. Salty for CF and Sweet for diabetes. I'm 31 and was diagnosed with CF related diabetes about 7 years ago, but only recently come out of denial with it. I couldn't find any info on the net about CFRD except medical papers so I started my own blog. A little CF a little more CFRD and a lot of me! :)
My blog is at Salty and Sweet.

Thanks Nate for your blog. I love reading about your family. So nice of you to share it with us! :)

Hey Nate...

Thank you from the very depth of my heart for posting that video...it has had over 6000 hits! Also my dad is leaving for his ride tomorrow and wants to thank you for your kindness and for donating to his cause. In your difficult time you still are so generous.....thank you.
As you know, I am Eva, with CF, 8 months post transplant and also give thanks to God for the glorious gift of breath. I try to keep updating as my normal life picks up speed. It was easier to post when I was sick all the time! Now I am busy out there living!!!!! Tomorrow I am paddling on a dragonboat team called the 'Gift of Life' with other transplant recipients and some mothers of sons who have died and were donors. Our team is dedicated to giving thanks to our donor families and to raising awareness that organ donation WORKS!!
I write about CF, transplant, paddling, life, love, God and the documentary that is being filmed about my life.
Thank you Nate for helping us all to connect and know that we are not alone.

Will and Will's family said...

Hello
I am a mother of a 34 year old man who has been dealing with CF for many years. He was able to get a double lung transplant on the 23rd of Feb. this year. He has been in the University of Utah hospital intensive care since then. On Sat. we will have been here 16 weeks. He has had many set back but still feels God is working to make this all worthwhile.
His blog spot is willharbison.blogspot.com
We had to leave Idaho to come to Utah for the transplant and so we set this blog spot up for all our wonderful family and friends to follow our journey. It has been a God send for us since this road has taken many bumps. We have been blessed by many, many people praying many, many prayers for healing for my son.
God bless you and your sweet family.

God Bless you and your family, Nate!

Lil' Chris' Mom said...

Hi Nate and Trisha,
I blog about my son Lil' Chris who has CF. He just turned 1. The reasons I started the blog was to keep a record of everything (different meds, doctor visits, colds, etc.), and to keep far away family updated, and to get in touch with other CF moms or families or CFers to get good advice from them.
So far, I've learned so much from other CF moms that read my blog like...easier ways to give meds, to watch out for the purple spots that the Prevacid Solutabs leave on clothes, 20 minutes is better than 1 hour for the enzymes to work, and so much more.
Now, I'm finding that I'm not only getting good advice, but that unknowingly, I've been giving good advice to others! I've been emailing a CF mom(who reads my blog) of a 27 year old daughter who never heard of the Vest. Thanks to my blog, she is now trying to get one to better her life! There is nothing I would love more than to help others. It is such a great feeling!
I'm so glad you are doing this, b/c I've been wanting to get in contact with more CF moms and CF families and CFers! I just didn't know how. Thank you so much:)
My blog is acure4lilchris.com
Thanks again,
M

Hi Again,

Ever since you posted this, I have been slowly making my way through the comments and checking out people's blogs...holy cow! There are some amazing people on this blog roll. I am so grateful you did this--I am "meeting" such inspiring, interesting people that I would have never seen without this post. Thank you so much for doing this. I hope you still plan to organize these in a blog roll because, just as you are amazing, there are so many people on this list that the world needs to know about!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

I am a SAHM to Timothy, 5 yrs old, no CF, and Samantha, 2 yrs old, with CF. My blog's focus is learning to embrace each thing we face, knowing that whether it seems good or bad it always gives us the opportunity to depend on Christ more than we were before. Because of that, it is not always about CF. However, I blog about CF the 8th of every month because Sam's b-day is the 8th. Sometimes it's about her quarterly appt, sometimes it's explaining to my friends a particular treatment we give her, and recently it was about our first Great Strides walk where we raised over $3300! I tag my CF posts "Cystic Fibrosis" which should help anyone trying to weed through all the other posts. I'm looking forward to creating a CF blogroll of my own out of these comments. Thanks CF Husband!

Hi -- I'm going on two weeks with the new blog (abandoned previous one, which is not a great recommendation, but I hope to do better). Write occasionally about my partners CF, lung Tx (in 2001) and subsequent complications (cancer 2x, largely), when they are major players in our life. Address is:

Best to you and yours; hope the Rixtumab is working great and the treatments are going well.

Sorry, I put the wrong url in my previous comment so I deleted it.

My name is Becky and I blog occasionally about my son Ricky, who is now 12.5 and has CF. His blog is at http://blog.cfboy.com.

I've been lurking on your blog for some time now. I especially love the pictures of the family you recently posted!!

I have a 2 year old daughter who was diagnosed with CF 2 days before Christmas 2007 after months of "unexplained" illness. We do not have a blog but do have a caring bridge site.

My husband and I just started a new CF blog that deals with CF awareness and fundraising. We would love for it to be a great place to exchange ideas!
