A little of this, a little of that

Lent has begun and I must admit I'm craving some Sour Patch Kids - ahhh!! This is too soon to be having withdrawals.  Unfortunately, I've cursed at least twice today. I caught myself immediately and corrected my verbiage :)

I had lunch today with some old buddies from college.  We had a great time catching up - I love spending time with friends - it just makes my day!  And tonight, we are going to eat dinner at our best friend's house & get to hang out with my favorite one year old!!

I'm on week 3 of my off week from Cayston & feel fabulous.  I have coughed a slight bit more today and yesterday, but I blame the hubby.  He's had a funk the past few days and hacks a lot.  I'm trying to avoid him :)  I'll start back on the 19th with my Cayston.

I'm heading in for my quarterly check up next Friday, so I'm excited to see my fabulous CF team!  Should be an easy visit, just PFTs and my regular appointment - no X-rays, blood work or bone density test - Yay!

  1. Yay on the easy visit! I'll be praying that everything goes great! Giving up Sour Patches and cursing...I will definitely be praying! I can't go a day without saying my favorite four letter word, starting with s. My mom told me that was one of the first words that came out of my mouth. I guess I need to get rid of my potty mouth as I will have a little one coming soon.

    I remember practicing good ole Lent when I was a presbyterian. I can't remember what my hardest fast was though. I told Jim even though we aren't Catholic or Presbyterian, I think I'm going to give up water. (I don't think my doc will approve of that, though.)

    I hope Mr. William feels better. Just remember to use your positive attitude as you did earlier...I will not get sick, I will not get sick. Unfortunately, it doesn't work with contractions, I've tried.

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…
