Day 30: So today Jude's little cough has gotten worse. We always worry with a cough because they can lead to lung infections and we don't want his little lungs to colonize any bacteria. With a kid without CF, we might go longer before hitting the antibiotics but with Jude we are a little more aggressive. We want to knock out whatever is causing this cough. We have a new antibiotic on board this time, Keflex. He's never been on this one before and I already hate it because it has to be given FOUR times a day!! Holy cow. It smells awful but he doesn't seem to mind the taste. It is apparently cherry, but I don't see the resemblance. Hopefully we'll be able to tell in the next couple of days if this new medicine is doing him any good. I hate to see my little guy sick. But I do have to mention, that he does not appear sick. He's still running around acting like his crazy self, just with a little cough. I'll keep you posted.
Day 31: In a former life, I was a band teacher. Also, as part of my music teacher duties in the public school I taught at, I was required to teach guitar as well. I am NOT a guitar player but I do have enough skills to teach basic guitar. This is a Juglet that I teach every other week. She is super smart and catches on really quickly. We had a lesson this morning and she allowed me to take her picture. We've been doing lessons for a few months now but I think it probably won't be long before she outgrows me and moves on to someone with a little more guitar talent.
