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…

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…
