Cayston Progress

With my crazy, busy life lately I haven't had much time to update on my Cayston progress.  I started this round on May 14th, so it traveled with me to Dallas.  I did well there, didn't miss a beat.  Airport travel was a breeze again.  I keep my nebulizer and handsets in my suitcase and put the meds with my toiletries (I carry on whenever possible to avoid the horrific checked baggage experience).  So, the meds run through the metal detector with my other "liquids, gels & aerosols". 

Then, this past weekend we went camping in West Virginia with Will's family & I packed up the Cayston again.  I managed to miss my last treatment on Saturday night - perhaps I was overly exhausted or it may have been the Margaritas and Pink Panty Pull-downs that I was drinking :)  I must add, Will's Uncle Charles makes some exceptional cocktails!!

So, I'm on track to finish on June 10th and then make up my missed treatment from camping on Saturday, June 11th.  Hopefully I won't miss anymore! 

I haven't rode my bike in over 2 weeks!  With all our trips, we just haven't had time.  We are hoping to get a ride in this evening, but we'll see.  I'm still in Zumba, which I of course missed in Dallas and only got to go once last week due to leaving town, but will be there tomorrow! So excited!

Other news - my CF appointment is Friday, so I'll share all the details when I get back - wish me luck!

  1. My wife is going to start Cayston tomorrow. I was looking through the internet tonight, trying to see how people were doing with it....tips for taking it, nasty side effects....

    Would you give Cayston two thumbs up? Anything you'd like to share would be helpful.

    1. Hi Charles - thanks for reading! Yes, I'd give Cayston 2 thumbs up! It can get annoying having to do it 3 times a day, but its so fast that its over by the time I start to complain. I feel like my lungs are much better since I've been doing Cayston...I love the way I feel when I can take a nice big deep breath of air. Hope all goes well for your wife!

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…

Hello?

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.

Pupdate

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…
