Kendall was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at the age of 7 in 1997.  We had just moved to San Antonio, TX after 2 years in Korea.  He received care at Wilford Hall on Lackland AFB and did great once he received necessary treatments.  In 2001, he contracted nontubercular mycobacterium abscessus, which required IV antibiotics at home plus inhaled antibiotics. 

In 2003 we moved to Colorado and Kendall started receiving care at The Children's Hospital in Denver.  He was hospitalized frequently and had trouble with gaining weight until March 2007.  From that point on, he avoided hospital stays by staying vigilant with is treatments. 

In July 2009, he had a bad bout of hemoptysis which required an interventional radiology procedure they call "coiling."  We kept a Caring Bridge website on the classic version, but I (mom) decided to switch to the new version now.  His old site is at http://www3.caringbridge.org/tx/kendall/  I am moving the last journal entry from that site to be the first entry here.
