Cayston Time

These past 4 weeks have snuck up on me - where does the time go?  I'll be starting my Cayston treatments on Saturday.  I ordered my meds on Tuesday (from the CF Pharmacy, which I highly recommend) and it arrived on Wednesday.  Very fast and efficient.  I'm rather paranoid so I always order several days before just to ensure there is plenty of time for everything to arrive.


The past 4 weeks, I would say my health has been just fine being off the treatments.  Although, I was coughing in my sleep two nights ago & I'm coughing a bit now. Generally, I don't feel like I cough that much...I guess I do more than the average person...but I don't really notice.  That would be a good challenge to see how much I actually cough on a daily basis.

The only downside of my treatments this time is that I'll be traveling...again :(.  I'm off to Dallas on Sunday for work & I'll get home Friday morning.  So, I get to pack up all my goodies and add them to my already overstuffed suitcase.  Then, we are taking a beach trip so I'll get to pack everything up again - but that's OK, at least it will be fun :).

On another note - I'm bummed that my Zumba classes have been cancelled for the month of July :(  So, now I have to ride my bike or come up with something else to do.  I'm slightly embarrassed to admit, but I downloaded several of the songs we use in class and I've done them on my own...haha! I'm sure its quite a sight to see - poor Will.  Even more embarrassing:  I was sore after I went through the playlist - I must have really worked it!

Well, happy weekend to all! I'm beyond ready for some down time!

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…
