In the spirit of Valentine's Day

*Disclaimer - this may be a bit sappy for some of you out there...sorry! *

Love...it's an interesting thing.  There are several types of love.  Love can change.  Love can end.  You can "love" and you can be "in love".

Yesterday marked 10 years that Will and I had our first date.  Hard to believe he's been around 1/3 of my life...really, hard to believe he's put up with me for that long!  I was thinking about the first time we said those infamous 3 words - "I love you".  I truly thought I was in love and I could picture him in my life.  I enjoyed spending time with him and cherished our relationship.  Now, I look at how our love has changed and grown.  Perhaps it was just "puppy love" I initially felt.  When we got engaged - I just couldn't imagine being able to love someone anymore.  And now after six and a half years of marriage, I know I love him even more.  Its a love that I can't imagine not having.  I wouldn't know what to do without him in my life...as cliche as it may sound, but he's my rock.  He keeps me grounded and gives me that reality check when I need one.

Love lets you see past any imperfections.  Love allows you to accept someone for who they are.  And boy am I thankful to have found someone that can see past my imperfections.  I've found someone that doesn't look at me as someone with Cystic Fibrosis, instead he sees me for me.

He can see past my bad manors; he puts up with my bad habits; he laughs at my moments of cluelessness; he accepts me and my sailor mouth (I'd say he contributed in developing it); and he challenges me to be a better person.

I'm fortunate to love and be loved.  There's nothing better than having someone you can share your innermost thoughts with and yet be able to goof off and have fun!

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…
