Cayston & Baseball

I just started a new round of Cayston on Monday.  I was scheduled to start on Saturday, but since we were out of town, I figured I'd just wait to start when we got back home so I didn't have to lug it with me...I had limited room in my carry-on suitcase for the flight, so the Cayston was sacrificed :)

All has been going well, I can feel it working already.  Unfortunately, that caused me to cough my head off on Tuesday night.  I woke up around 3am and tried to change positions and even sat up to try to help (this usually does help), but had not luck.  I had to go get my inhaler and take a puff.  Thankfully, this helped and I went right back to sleep and didn't disrupt Will or the puppies too much.

Speaking of my trip, here are a few pictures from the Yankees game:

Almost game time 
Beautiful day for a game in the Bronx

We had a great time at the game and its getting me even more excited for my favorite sport - college football!!!  Woohoo - can't wait for a fun football season and lots of good tailgate food :)

  1. As far as the inhaler, Do you use Albuterol? For me, whenever I do inhaled antibiotics I will take 2 puffs of Albuterol before I do my VEST. This helps open my airways to accept whatever antibiotis I inhale. I was the same way with coughing like crazy after inhaling a med but ever since adding the Albuterol before VESTing I am golden!!

    I love the pictures as well

  2. Hey John - yep, I use Albuterol. I actually take a puff before every Cayston treatment because it had initial caused some chest discomfort and excess coughing. Since I started doing that I haven't had any issues, other than the occasional coughing at night like the one I wrote about.

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…
