  • My friends son had cystic fibrosis. He was very tiny for his age as many CF kids have digestive issues. He also got sick a lot. I don't think he looked sick- he just looked really small- he didn't gain much weight after he was born. He's 9 now. His disease is not too well controlled- so he is sick. But he still goes to school and does other regular activities. He is still small for his age.
