Counting Down

I love counting down to big events!  And I have a few coming up!

Easter -just 4 more days!!!
Woohoo!  Then, I can eat sweets again.  I just can't wait!  I have decided that I will try to keep my sweets to a minimum from now on, but not give them up totally!  To assist my goal here, I am vowing not to buy myself any candy, but will definitely eat any people give me.  So, if you want to get me some candy - go for it!  I love Sour Patch Kids (as you all know), SweetTarts, Reese's Peanut Butter cups...heck, pretty much everything!  LOL

Great Strides - 2 weeks and 3 days!
I'm so happy that CF Stinks has hit $8,000 towards our $10,000 goal - yay!! I know we can do it!!  If you would like to help us reach our goal, you can donate here: http://fightcf.cff.org/goto/cfstinks



My Birthday - 7 weeks and 1 day
I can't believe I will be 31.  I was so shocked and stressed about 30, I feel like I blinked and its about done.  Here's hoping I get to have another fun celebration :)  I'm thinking Vegas sounds fun!!


A New Vest - not sure how long...
I've started the insurance approval process for my new vest! Yay!! This old beast I have will be going out the door.  Hopefully soon than later.  I spoke with a rep from SmartVest yesterday and we are moving forward!  Let's hope insurance will help out *fingers crossed*.  I often find myself in the position where they think I am "too healthy" and don't need certain things.  Well, I am where I am because I take care of myself!! So, fork over the SmartVest!!

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…
