I'm still here...

I can't believe its been a week and a half since I've been on here...I'm not quite sure what I've been up to thats distracted me so much.  Let's see...

  • Will and I went to Atlanta the weekend of the 1st - we had a great time with some wonderful people...we say the Cirque Du Soleil show Totem.  It was amazing...those people make it look so easy!  
  • I put up the Christmas decorations in the house...unfortunately, I was a bit destructive this year.  I broke a few of my favorite things in the process :(  I was about to throw in the towel and say bah humbug, but I didn't...and now just looking at the Christmas tree makes me happy.
  • I started Cayston...all is going well with that.  I did struggle to remember it a few times and got behind schedule...which drives me nuts.  So, I've gotten myself caught up now.  I had a little Cayston-induced cough around day 3 of the cycle which unfortunately kept me awake one night (and Will too), but all is better.
  • This weekend I had 3 Christmas dinners/parties in a row.  They were all a lot of fun.  I love this time of year :)
I think that's about it.  I've got a busy week ahead...unfortunately, I have to go to the dentist in the morning for a filling :(  I'm so mad...I haven't had a cavity since I was around 10!  This is crazy!!!  I also have a CF appointment on Friday, so I get in my last quarterly appointment for the year.  Let's hope that goes well!!  I've been feeling great, so we'll see how the PFTs go.

Hope everyone has a great week and I will try and do better at keeping up with blogging.

  1. Hey Cyster! I was wondering where you went :)

    At least you didn't hurt yourself or anyone else when you broke the Christmas decorations. You got to look at the glass half full.

    I'm glad to hear that you are feeling well. I hope that CF appointment goes really well for you!!

    Take care!

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…
