The Hilarious Side of Cystic Fibrosis

author's note: I have been so saddened by the loss of sweet, little Tuesday. It does seem that so many of us are facing tough times (to say the least). I wanted to bring a little humor back to my own day, and hopefully yours, as well. You all are the best!

I will have to start with a little background info. One of the effects of cystic fibrosis is some pretty foul poop. Being honest, it is absolutely horrific. It can pretty quickly, without a lot of notice, and one has to be ready to "exit stage left" immediately and have plenty of spare time on their hands. 

Somehow, we were on the subject of "poop" last night (See, it doesn't end when they become potty-trained... it actually gets worse), and we were reminded of the time our little cf patient was 13 and was lucky enough to go with a friend on a private, guided tour of Air Force One (yes, that one). He came home all excited, with lots of details and stories. The highlight being him taking one of his typical bowel movements in the President's private toilet (and he told us this so proudly, too). 

I know, I know... I think he should include it on his college resume, too. It can't hurt, that's for sure.

LOL! I was hoping that it would get better after potty training. We have had some interesting situations with poop. Mainly it running down legs and such in grocery stores though :0

OMG that is hillarious and definetly needs to be on the college apps

I had the priveledge once while we were pretending to be VERY wealthy and touring open houses in this VERY wealthy community near Hotlanta I had to pee and used the toilet in the master suite (I was Preggo at the time) we laughed and said that was one expensive pee-the house was about $1mil or so.

Denise said...

LOL.....anyone who can claim to do that in the Presidents toilet has every right to Scream it from the mountain tops. My hubby would be so proud!

Soxy Deb said...

Oh that's a keeper! I would tell anyone who would listen!!

When I can quit laughing I will comment.

OMG, that is awesome. I think that has to be worked in to the header of his college resume as well. Did he clear out the plane?

I'm guessing from the age, that would have been W.'s plane?

He probably had a big laugh and then lit a match.

Good ole boys love them some poop.
