Just to add a little ray of Sun Shine to this post. CF, although a very bad disease is treatable. My brother who is now 21 has been living a very normal life with his CF. He is going to college, has a girlfriend, and wants kids. Your child can live a normal life with proper treatment, the down side of the story is that he most likely won't live past 40. But 40 years is still better then no years. If possible one thing I would suggest would be to move to Toronto if you can, The Hospital for Sick Kids is one of the leaders in treatment for CF and St. Michaels Hospital is the other leader in CF treatment for Adults. The combination of those two great hospitals have kept my brother in decent health for a long time. He is in and out of hospitals once or twice a year, but again it is a very treatable disease, so there is hope.
