Cayston in Dallas

I failed to mention in my previous post that it is time to start my next round of Cayston.  I started on Saturday morning, right before our dog walk.  I will post some pics when I get home from Dallas - got a super cute one of Sophie in her Paws for Pink bandanna :) 

I was going to put off my Cayston a week since I was heading to Dallas and it isn't nearly as convenient doing my treatments here as when I'm home.  Most people I work with have no clue about my CF and I don't really feel like having to go through explaining it, so I do a treatment in the morning around 7:30 am before I head out to the office.  Then, I rush back at the end of the day (usually between 5:30 and 6 pm) to do my second treatment.  And my final treatment is right before I turn out the light for bed (which seems to be pretty early - I try to stay on Eastern time so I don't get too messed up).  But of course, I allow at least a 4 hour window from my second and third treatments.

I've had some weird symptoms since I've been in Dallas.  Don't think its the Cayston (at least I hope not) but my whole body just ached last night when I was going to bed.  I hardly slept - I'd wake up every 30 to 45 minutes - just miserable.  Then, of course I'd think about work and all the things I needed to do which stressed me out and made it hard to get back to sleep.  Then, this morning, I almost called in saying I would be late, but I knew I couldn't do that.  My back just ached and I felt nauseous.  Luckily a lady a work gave me some Aleve and I felt better.  Maybe its the Pei Wei I ate last night?!?!  Just hope it doesn't happen again tonight! 

But, after my second Cayston treatment today I started having a sore throat...oh joy!  I hate traveling and being exposed to all these germs! 

Well, gonna go read a bit more while I watch Dancing with the Stars!  I'm cheering for Hines!!!

My little bully babies are growing up.  Sarge & Stella turned 6 at the beginning of July and T-Bone turned 8 at the end of July.

We celebrated Sarge & Stella's birthday at home with some special treats from the local pet store.  T-Bone got to be at his favorite place on his birthday (our cabin in WV).  Unfortunately I was a bad dog mom and forgot his birthday hat and treat, but he got extra loving and sang to multiple times.

T-Bone had his bi-annual check up just before his birthday and had a good report.  We are changing his eyedrops due to the formula change in what he was using - it was making his eyes red and itchy. And then, in his ear (not the one that just had surgery) we noticed a tick like thing in one of the folds. He got very irritated with us when we messed with it, so thankfully his appointment was the next day, so I figured I'd let them piss him off.  Turns out, its not a tick.  The vet said it looked just like the mass that he saw in his other ear cana…

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.

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 I'm not tangled up :)And it comes with a rolling case (that looks like a re…


I'm back!!!

Unfortunately, I've been MIA due to some family medical stuff.  We had quite a scare with my stepdad.  Thankfully, he is out of the hospital and recovering!  He will be staying with Will and I for a while so we can help nurse him back to health.

I never thought about losing a parent before.  As I grew up, I lost my grandparents and understood that I would have to worry about losing others as they too got older.  But, I never imagined being 30 and having to think about a parent leaving my life.  What a scary thought.  It definitely got me thinking.

Life is precious.  I can't sweat the small stuff.  I shouldn't worry about stupid things that really don't matter.  You never know how much time you have left in this world, so enjoy every moment that you can.  Have fun!  Let those that you love know that you love them.

I am not done with my parents.  I still need them ALL.  I don't think that will ever change though.
