my poor daughter, could it be cf?

Hello all, just wondering if anyone else child that is sufferng. Daughter sick since 7 months old. Was born with jaundice, then colic, thenat 7 months doctor said she had allergies <doctor never did actually check to see if was upper resp infec> put on high strength zyrtec. Didnt help. SO went back to fulltime breastfeeding, seemed to help a bunch. Kept still once in awhile getting upper resp, ear infections, sinus infections, and upper resp infections about every 3 weeks. Tried every type of med you can imagine. Then when she was almost 6 years of age, after I had completely stopped breastfeeding she got far worse. Missed 30 plus days of her kindergarten year. Has now missed over 30 days again. They removed tonsils, adenoids, and shaved turbinates. Just put in tubes in her ears. Still having bad mucous/post nasal drip, sinus infections. Never clears up, constant low grade fever, with chronic cough. Last night she had such bad mucous that she was throwing up. her ct scan showed sinus infection, but not sure if fungal or bacterial. We go to ENT tomorrow, going to ask to culture it. SHe aso has the cf sweat test tomorrow too. She is highly allergic to alternaria mold, and all other molds, and cats, but not much else. Anyone else having these issues. Thanks bunches, and god bless gal
