It's been a couple of years

Where my life is now still stressful and not normal. Kayla is 17 a new driver and has a boyfriend of 5 months she has had a double lung transplant almost 3 years ago (2-13-13) it has been a long rocky road but it has been a big change in our lives. We go to Pittsburgh PA every 2 months for a clinic visit and a biopsy she has had mild rejection 2 times she is still very small only 4'10 and 80lbs. The boys Ethan is 14 (will be 15 in March) and still hasn't been hospitalized for his cf. Zach is 14 and is growing like a weed. Kayden is 13 and is growing just got glasses now Zach is the only child without glasses. And the Baby of the family is Dylan he is 12 still hasn't been hospitalized for his cf. Went to Disneyworld for the first time On March 14 2014 It was Ethan make a wish and went for Dylan's to Disney World on Feb13 2015 and our Family has been dreaming and wishing to go Back. Not only is it a magical place it left us feeling normal and forgetting about the daily treatments and the meds and the worries of a Cystic fibrosis/Transplant life I would love to go every year to give the family great memories but will never happen again just not in our budget sucks never having money for fun things. Been looking for a job but I have been out of the workforce for 17 years its hard to find one.

its been a while

Its been a while since i last wrote a lot has been going on in life,Kayla has been really sick didn't think she was going to pull through this but she did she is a fighter and that makes me love her even more she was on iv's in july-beginning of aug She started 6th grade on aug 28 and made it for the first week then she got sick:( she has been on iv's since sept 7th the doc added a new iv on sept 28th and that when she took a turn for the worse she was spiking high fevers and coughing blood.The doc put her in the IMC at hershey medical center when she got there she needed 10 liters of oxygen but every day she got better she had only spent a week in the imc now we are home and waiting for our trip to pittsburgh childrens hospital for a double lung transplant evaluation. The boys are doing great getting big and have been troopers through all of this, since i've been focused on kayla and i feel bad that i don't spend alot of time with them right now.

This year has been really tight since i can't babysit right now so that extra income is gone so christmas is looking very bad for the kids:(((( and my husband makes to much to get any help. on a onther note my brother is a father not only was my nephew born on my brothers birthday(Aug 9th) that was the day my dad died 17 years ago so i feel greatful for xander it was nice to see a new life born on such a sad day its like my dad came back into our lives all over again
I LOVE YOU XANDER VEGAS TATRO! u are a joy to have in my life jerry you are an amazing father you stepped up when tara was sick but now she is better and is a part of his life again.

Man do I hate Hershey Medical Center!!! they turned me into childeren and youth because Kayla is under weight and I didn"t take her to a appointment that was my choice SHE DON'T HAVE AN EATING DISORDER!!!! she just don't eat much because she isn't hungry because you give her 2,000 calories at night so now they want to take her away because she is 63lbs and it just makes me so mad! How many kids with cystic fibrosis are heavy? most are under weight duh your the doctor and don't even know that! thats funny that they only say about Kayla I have 2 boys who have CF and nothing is even said about them!UGH I just want to scream! f you have a child and it needs to go to Hershey RUN!!!! do not go find a better hospital!
