My neice was born 2 weeks ago and has been in the NICU since birth with a meconium ileus, now has a colostomy bag. Her genetic testing just came back positive for cystic fibrosis today. I am devastated, as is my sister. Anyone BTDT with remotely positive stories?

I know there is at least one mama on here with a daughter with CF and they are doing well. I know there have been a lot of strides made in treating CF and the life expectance has increased a whole lot. Hug hugs to your sister and your whole family navigating.

Just wanted to say that I had a childhood friend with CF; she's now my age (36) and doing pretty well, though still has many health issues. All the very best to your niece and your family
