While opening up the internet tonight, an article caught my eye. It discusses a bacteria that can thrive in disinfectant...and is showing to resist antibiotics without ever being exposed to them.

Pretty scary stuff for anyone, especially for those with CF. The pseudomonas aeruginosa that was mentioned in the article, is a bacteria that those with CF commonly struggle to fight against. As much as we CF parents try to remain hopeful about our children's futures, this kind of information is very scary...VERY scary...to read.

We've already had a rough day around our house, this just topped it off.

Ronnie just told me that he is featuring this article on his blog tomorrow, I'll connect you with a link as soon as he posts it.
