Spoiled Rotten

I woke up earlier than usual this morning as Will and I drove to our office in Greenwood (rather than working from home).  Will was a bit lazier than me and stayed in bed for the extra snooze.  So, I got up, went into the bathroom and started getting ready. I was a considerate wife that shut the door when I turned on the lights so that I wouldn't disturb Will too much during his extra few minutes in bed.

A few minutes later, I hear Will get up and then he appears in the bathroom.  Funny thing is, he shut the door behind him.  I stood there for a second thinking "why did he shut the door?"  We don't typically shut doors unless we have company or one of us gets up and doesn't want to disturb the other.  Then, I figured, he didn't want to wake Sophie - THE DOG!  How funny?!?! 

So, our sweet little bulldog stayed sleeping until we were dressed and ready to go.  She gets to come with us on our days in Greenwood, which she loves!

To some people, a dog is just a dog.  But to me (us), Sophie is a part of the family.  I honestly don't know what we would do without her - life would be sooo boring.  She has the ability to crack me up no matter what my mood.  She knows just the right moments to burp or fart - sad to say, yes, these noises make me laugh.  I love that little thing more than I could have ever imagined!

If you haven't hugged your dog today - be sure to give them a squeeze and tell them that you love them - Valentine's Day is on Monday after all!

SmartVest Review & CF Appointment

Well, here is the long awaited official review of my new SmartVest SQL.  I don't have any current or updated vests to compare this too, so my feed back is based upon what I like/dislike versus the old and out-dated vest.

Pros:
Weight - it is MUCH lighter than my ancient Hilrom Vest.  By all means, it isn't light but definitely a great improvement from my older model.  I can at least carry it myself!Comfort of vest - the fabric is much softer and less scratchy when wearing it.Technology - it has a digital screen, so I can set the time and know for sure how long I'm using it (the old one had a knob to turn).  Also, I can set different programs based on how long I want to use it, etc.  It's quieter!!  Will still doesn't enjoy watching TV with me while I vest, but I don't have to turn the TV to its max volume!  And, the dogs aren't scared of this one as much!There is only 1 hose...so I'm not tangled up :)And it comes with a rolling case (that looks like a re…

CF Updates

Greetings friends!

I had the pleasure of going to my quarterly CF appointment on Tuesday.  It was originally scheduled for 11/15 but being that my sinus funk is still lingering around, I wanted to move it up a bit.  (the original funk started here)

I finished my round of Cipro on 10/29.  And still had a head full of congestion, sore throat and ears. Bummer.  I thought I was starting to feel better for a split second, but it didn't last.  Thankfully, my lungs were still feeling good :)  We were at our cabin in WV that weekend and I skipped my vest and HTS, but thankfully didn't suffer.

So, I headed in to the doc on Tuesday.  My PFTs are holding stable so that makes me happy!  More on that in a minute.  During my exam, she could see there was still fluid in my ears along with my red throat.  Plus my face was super puffy and my eyes felt as if they were going to pop out of my head.

So, the plan of attack is this:

1) Take Levaquin 750mg for 14 days
2) Get back on my Claritin dail…

Feeling Good Guilt

Having Cystic Fibrosis is not something that consciously crosses my mind on a daily basis.  I take pills and do breathing treatments throughout my day, but I just do them out of habit.  I don't sit down to eat a meal and say, "oh, I have CF, I better take my enzymes".  Instead, I just subconsciously walk to the cabinet and pull out the bottle, or if I'm out to eat, I reach in my purse and grab them.  It's just like brushing my teeth before bed every night.

While I know I have a disease that is incurable.  I find myself just living life and doing the many things that I want to do.  While this seems well and good, it's also unfair.  There are other CFers fighting for their last breath, waiting for a second chance at life with a lung transplant, or being hooked up to an oxygen tank and dragging it with them wherever they go.

I often tell people that I am a bad example of CF.  When explaining CF to someone, I talk about the deterioration of the lungs, challenge…
