Cheers!

I truly love the south and imagine I'll be around here for quite a while.  There's nothing better than a true southerners fried chicken, mac 'n cheese and homemade biscuits.  Even after all this time here, I'm still not a fan of sweet tea (or unsweet) nor some of the other staples, like fatback, pulled pork (BBQ), hash or chitlins.  I think the people are friendlier and the weather is nicer (granted 100 degree weather isn't my favorite).  But there is one thing that completely urks me - no beer on Sunday.

I mean we aren't in Prohibition anymore, however, I believe some folks wish we were.  Depending on your county/city, you may not be able to buy it from the store and definitely can't get it with your meal if you go out to eat.  There are even dry counties that still exist!  Now, most of you big city folk are probably surprised by this.  The truth is, I am too!  I understand my region is the Bible Belt and heck, I'm all for the Bible.  But, I'm not for being told when and where it is OK to have an adult beverage, should I choose. 

I'm a Christian but I don't have my head in the sand and think that a drink is going to send me to Hell. That just doesn't make sense to me.  In my opinion, moderation is key.  Probably not ideal to be an alchoholic and blow all the family funds on booze, but hey, who am I to judge...just don't drink and drive!!

Anyway, Will and I were in Augusta, GA yesterday doing some shopping and we stopped for lunch at Red Robin and had a nice cold beer with our burgers!  It was great!!  I'm not saying I want to do it every day or every Sunday, but I sure think its nice to be able to have a drink when you want!


CHEERS!!

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…
