Hello Cipro :(

Unfortunately, I've been a little under the weather this week which has kept me from sharing with the world that I am an aunt (again!!!).  I was blessed with a nephew and a niece on June 20th!  Yes, two on one day and they aren't twins!!  I'm going to dedicate a post to these precious babies soon.

In celebration of my nephew, I went up to Indiana the weekend before last and I believe I caught something between the 2 hospitals and the airport...I'm thinking the airport.

It started last Monday evening with a slightly scratchy throat, which led to a sore throat Tuesday with a cough due to the sore throat.  Then, Wednesday, I felt like I hit a wall.  I was exhausted, achey, coughing (still not in the chest) and my sinuses were going bonkers.  I started feeling better Thursday and my lungs still felt clear.  But, somewhere between then and Sunday, the crap got into my chest.

I survived the last week on Mucinex, DayQuil, NyQuil, and cough drops.  Sadly, they didn't do the trick so I called the doctor yesterday...my CF doctor that is.  So, she called me in a prescription and I started it today.  She prescribed 750mg of Cipro to take twice a day for 14 days.

Here's hoping that will get rid of the funk!!  I've quarantined myself from holding the new babies - which is the worst part of all!  On a good note, I feel better then I sound :)

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…
