Tomorrow my little V is going to have a Sweat Test at Great Ormond Street Hospital( It is number 1 children hospital in UK).
First I will have to take K to the nursery at 9am then rush to the hospital to be there at 10.
The sweat test is:
- Children who have cystic fibrosis almost always have breathing problems and frequent lung infections( V has chest infection every month for 2nd year in a row.)
- Children who have cystic fibrosis may not be able to absorb nutrients from food and may have below-normal growth and development. Weight loss and difficulty gaining or maintaining weight are common problems for people of all ages who have cystic fibrosis.( My V has severe speech and language delay, poor appetite, she is underweight)
