Craziness

What a crazy week!  I didn't know if I was coming or going, I had so much going on it seems.  My poor brain was fried.  So, finally had a moment of sanity to check in.

I've finished week 2 of Cayston & going strong.  Lungs feel clear as ever - I think its helping with the pollen too (if that's possible?!!?).  Everything around here is yellow - STILL.  Its so gross.  Usually, I feel like my head is about to explode and get a little congested, but I'm feeling great (knock on wood).

I've done Zumba for two weeks now with some friends & we are addicted.  Also been doing great at riding my bike - we put in a little over 10 miles last week.  I'm missed exercising these past few months.  I feel energized and motivated after exercising.  We rode about 8 miles on Saturday and I felt like I could keep going! 

Will's determined to lose some weight & I could spare a few myself.  Although I enjoy winter & my extra padding, its time to burn it off for bathing suit season...which is pretty much here.  One day it is 50 and the next its 80 - got to love South Carolina weather. 

I had a great weekend - the highlight: I went to visit a wonderful friend & her newborn baby boy!  He was such a little cutie, I held him the whole time I was there & he slept like a rock.  Got to catch up on our girl talk too!  There's nothing like holding a newborn - they are so small & it makes you realize how precious life is.  They make the cutest faces and funniest noises too!

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…
