Week in Review

I can't believe a week has gone by already - oops!  I do have some good news - I took the pups back to the vet for a check up on their skin and its looking good.  Sarge will stay on the meds a few more weeks since he had it worse but Stella is good to go!  They were weighed and I was shocked - I know they are chunky little things but I didn't know they weighed that much.  Stella weighed in at 40.3 lbs and Sarge was 42.4 lbs.  Oh my!  No wonder its harder to pick them up now!  I remember the day I could stack them on top of each other and hold them in one arm!

Do they look that big?
I'm almost done with week 2 of Cayston and doing great!  Cough is slightly increased but that's getting the junk out, so yay!

On Monday, I had the opportunity to go to lunch with the Executive Director of the Georgia and South Carolina chapters of the CF Foundation.  It was nice getting to meet Scot and we talked about CF and the upcoming Great Strides walk in Augusta, which I will be participating in.  Its pretty cool to see that us CFers have some outstanding people working on our side to spread the word about CF and help find a cure!

Then, yesterday I got to spend the day with my favorite little guy, Preston.  We had fun playing and singing and he even helped take the puppies on a walk with me!  I will say a 2 1/2 year old is fun, but exhausting - I was ready for bed last night!!

As for Lent, I'm doing good.   I've actually been craving pop more than the Sour Patch Kids.  Will and I have plans to go to the Coke Factory next weekend with a few other couples - what am I going to do?!?!  I guess I can break the rule for the tasting :)

TGIF - hope everyone has a great weekend!  We are keeping it low key at our household - nothing planned, but maybe a trip to Pet Smart!

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…
