It's pretty much guaranteed that we CFers have to go into the hospital once in a while to get a "tune up": a few weeks of IV antibiotics, extra chest physical therapy and inhaled meds, and rest. I've had my fair share of tune ups since I was a kid, and I currently feel best when I get one every 3 to 4 months. I wanted to share a few pieces of advice to other adults with CF out there who want to maximize the effectiveness of their stays, and also reduce the risk of developing possible side effects. Being a kid in the hospital is a little bit different, but some of the same tips may be helpful for the smaller humans, too.
