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…

CFF Blog Post

I was honored when the CF Foundation approached me to write a blog about our decision to not have children.  As a reader, you know how much we love our dogs and feel fully blessed by having them.  So, why not share it with the whole CF community?!!

Check out the blog post here.


I was shocked to see how many responses appeared on the FB.  We had likes, loves, wows and sad faces...thankfully not mad faces.

I enjoyed reading the comments...of course most everyone was very supportive and shared their decisions on having or not having kids.  But in typical social media fashion, people take things to the extreme or can't keep rude thoughts to themselves.  So, I wanted to take a minute to give some feedback.


1) I'm 99% sure we would have came to this decision even if I didn't have CF.  Every couple makes a decision whether or not to expand their family.

2) We aren't irresponsible in our delay of having Will tested for the genes...its called birth control people.  And EVERYONE…
