I had a great appointment on Friday! Will even tagged along this time! My FEV1 was 93% and my FVC was 101%! Woohoo! We talked about me not exercising the past couple months & I informed them, I am on my way to make a come back in exercising. Then, we discussed changing my enzymes since the Ultrase MT 20s still aren't approved...I've just been living off reserves & its time to switch since I can't get them any more. They have me trying Zenpep. So far, so good. Had a few belly aches at night, but nothing major, probably just getting adjusted. If all goes well the next few days, I'll get my prescription for those.
Don't I look thrilled to be wearing my face mask!
Also, we discussed getting Will tested for the CF gene. Now don't go crazy thinking I'm going to have a kid anytime soon (if at all). Just curious and want to know all our options before we make any kind of decision. I guess we will get that taken care of in the next few months.
As for my exercising, Will and I went to buy a mountain bike for me after my appointment. That's going to be our new hobby! He bought one the week before so I felt left out and wanted one too. Saturday morning, we got up and rode 7 miles - there is a trail about 20 minutes from our house. We went with some friends who have been doing it much longer then us - they were very patient with us :) I love the feeling after excercing - I'm all pumped up and ready to take on the world (after drinking some water). Then, just last night I took a Zumba class with 2 girlfriends - I really enjoyed it & we are planning to go back for the Wednesday night class.
And last, I started Cayston on Saturday. I had my first treatment before my bike ride. I used the Ventolin inhaler first and haven't had any discomfort. My coughing has increased slightly, but I'm blaming the pollen outside. Everything is turning YELLOW - gross! Here's a pic of my Cayston (my little Chemistry set) and my Altera handsets. Pulled out the sterilizer on Friday to get ready for Saturday. Will just loves all my "stuff" in the kitchen.
That pretty much sums up the past few days! Just got word that one of my dear friends is in labor - her baby boy will be here soon - congrats Amber & Jim!!
