I was peed on AGAIN

These pups are nuts!  Thats all I can say.  Stella went in to the vet yesterday for her 1 week follow up on her bladder/urinary track infection.  Even after a week, there are still traces of blood in her urine, so she is going to stay on her bladder remedy meds for another week.  She also got a shot, can't remember of what, but its to try and help the inflamation.

She's still acting like her crazy self, which is good, but she's continues to squat 2-3 or more times each time I take her to potty.  At least she doesn't appear to be in pain anymore - thank goodness.  But, last night I was sitting on the floor for our playtime and she crawled in my lap - both of the pups think they are lap dogs which I find cute now, but probably not so much when they are full grown.  So, she's on my lap chewing a toy, then all of a sudden I feel something hot and wet on my leg!  I scream and push her off of me to find that I've been peed on...again.  She didn't even know what she did, which I find odd.  She looked at me like I was the crazy person!

So, the battle with Stella's bladder remains on going.  Hopefully one more week will do the trick, if not, I don't know what I'm going to do!  Both my floors and myself are tired of being peed on!


AND.....HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY DADDY!!! Love you lots - hope you have a great day - can't wait to see you next weekend :)

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…

Feeling Good Guilt

Having Cystic Fibrosis is not something that consciously crosses my mind on a daily basis.  I take pills and do breathing treatments throughout my day, but I just do them out of habit.  I don't sit down to eat a meal and say, "oh, I have CF, I better take my enzymes".  Instead, I just subconsciously walk to the cabinet and pull out the bottle, or if I'm out to eat, I reach in my purse and grab them.  It's just like brushing my teeth before bed every night.

While I know I have a disease that is incurable.  I find myself just living life and doing the many things that I want to do.  While this seems well and good, it's also unfair.  There are other CFers fighting for their last breath, waiting for a second chance at life with a lung transplant, or being hooked up to an oxygen tank and dragging it with them wherever they go.

I often tell people that I am a bad example of CF.  When explaining CF to someone, I talk about the deterioration of the lungs, challenge…
