Backpack holiday
I am leaving to Norway by car this summer and I am planning to make a multi-day trip with backpack. What is the best way to sterilize my aerosol ? I have heard of javeltablets but then I have to find a source of fresh water each time. Also, I wonder how to keep pulmozyme permanently below 8 degrees celcius, because that also seems to be difficult to reach through a cooling bag.

Kluyvera ascorbata in the sputum
Hello, in my last sputum sample there were besides Staphlococcus aureus and Aspergillus fumigatus the above mentioned bacteria. My treating physician thinks that waiting would be the right decision, until the next sputum sample. The symptoms I have did not change. I never heard anything about this bacterium. Could you give me some information about it? Many thanks

Towels: how often do we have to change?
Dear expert team, my daughter (CF, 4 years old) uses in the kindergarten a cloth towel for drying the hands (mouth, face) after washing; those are changed every day, therefore she gets a new one every day. Until now she got every time after washing her hands a fresh towel - in order that she does not use a wet towel with probable germs in it. However I ask myself now, how fast germs grow or it it would be sufficient if she gets a new towel in the mornings and the next new one at lunch time? She is about 6.5 hours in the kindergarten. Thank you Best regards! EM

Lung transplantation / mycobacteria
My niece has CF, now the mycobacterium has been found ... according to the physicians she will get a lung transplantation...however the hospital is refusing to do it because of the mycobakterium. My question, which hospital would take a CF patient with mycobakteria and also do the operation? It comes out to be difficult and I find it personally evil that everybody refuses to do it.... Best regards,
