Sweet Babies :)

As I previously mentioned - I was blessed to have 2 new babies join the world on June 20th.  I was so surprised that they both decided to come into the world on the same day.  I remember when I found out about the pregnancies, I thought that it would be pretty cool if they had the same birthday!  But, I never imagines it would really happen.

So, who are these two little people that joined the world?  Here they are:

Adam Knox

 Lillian Cayte

Adam Knox belongs to my big brother, Michael and his wife, Amanda.  Amanda went into labor on Wednesday night and this little guy was born at 2:32 am.  It was a busy night - I was anxiously waiting for texts from my brother with updates on the labor.  They live in Indiana, so I wasn't able to be at the hospital :(  But, Michael did great keeping up posted then sending pictures and videos once he was born.

Just when I thought the day couldn't get any better, I woke up for work after a few hours of sleep and my best friend, Brandy had texted me that she was in labor!!  Holy cow!  I gave her a ring as they were about to head to the hospital, so I got dressed and headed that way too (after calling out of work)!  At first the doctor thought it would be rather quick for Lilly's arrival, but she held out until 2:18 pm.  Just like when her big brother Preston was born, the nurses brought her into the nursery and we all stood around taking pictures and videoing her getting her bath and fed.  How exciting!

Will and I spent some time at the hospital meeting Lilly, then I headed to my mom's for our drive to Indiana.  I was so excited to be able to see both babies while they are still so small.  I love the newborn age!!  Its pure bliss just holding them and watching them.  So innocent, so small, so snuggly.  Its hard to imagine that I can love these little ones so much (and Preston too!).

I wish these precious babies a lifetime of love, happiness, and health.  They will always have an Aunt Dana that they can rely on for anything!!

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…

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…
