Medicine Updates

Well, I received word that my insurance will help cover the cost of the eRapid handset for the Hypertonic Saline.  But being that I haven't reached my deductible yet, I'll have to cover the cost of the handset, which is a hundred and something dollars...for one!  At this point,  I'm fine with that - I just want the darn thing in my hands so I can start it!

Today was my start date for, thankfully I remembered :)  I can already feel a difference...which is odd.  I'm coughing and feel congested, if that makes any sense?!  We were at an outside wedding this evening, and it was drizzling and super humid.  I had to cough so bad, and kept trying to hold it in so I didn't interrupt the ceremony.  Thankfully, once it ended, I went back to the car and took a hit off my Ventolin inhaler and hacked for a few seconds.

A kind of funny story about last night.  I'm the only one in my household that doesn't take melatonin...yes, even the pups do!  The vet has us giving them 5mg to help with their coat since they have seasonal flank alopecia.  Will takes 10mg every night, just cause.  So, I felt the need to give it a try last night.  Well, it knocked me out!!  Will and I were watching House Hunters in bed and I saw the first 2 houses and missed the rest!  I slept hard until around 2am...then the strange dreams started!  I mean, really off the wall stuff.  Then, I woke up around 5 and I was dying of mouth was soooo dry.  Maybe I was sleeping with it wide open - haha!  So, I chugged some water and went back to my bizarre dreams.  We got up around 8am and I feel like I never really woke up today.  So, no more melatonin for me!! I don't like feeling sleepy all day and I definitely don't like those crazy dreams!

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.

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 I'm not tangled up :)And it comes with a rolling case (that looks like a re…


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…

Farewell 34

I can't believe my birthday is tomorrow!  My #35daysofdonating challenge has been so fun and rewarding - it feels like it went by so fast.  I loved receiving input from my friends and family about organizations that mean something to them.  I even learned about organizations I didn't know existed.  In the last 34 days (35 tomorrow) I hope I've made a difference somewhere.  I know I didn't get to donate to all the suggested places, and I'm sorry if I missed one you wanted!  I wish funds were endless and I could do this every day forever!!!

You can check out my list of recipients here.

To recap my 34th year on this are some pictures of my favorite moments.
