This time of year is very overwhelming for me... for several reasons... One I am in the process of taking over running the local great strides walk with the guidance of the foundation... Next year its all me.. So this year I am learning everything that needs done on walk day.. Also this year I had the idea to do a "Cruise for Cystic Fibrosis" on the lake I grew up on. We will be cruising in the evening with food, soda and beer all to a dj. We have been busy rounding up raffle prizes and getting everything organized. I am very excited about both, however, there is a lot to do!
Mainly this time of year is overwhelming for me because its a constant reminder of what we deal with daily. Most of my facebook friends are CF patients or parents.. I am constantly bombarded with sad statistics, videos and pictures. Its a constant reminder that Ethan will struggle with CF and we have rough roads a head one day. Yes I am thrilled by the support and love that is outpoured for us and Ethan... but some days, this time of year, are hard.
