No Will Power and Other Shenanigans

Now that Easter is over and I can eat sweets again, I have no will power :(  I ate TWO bags of Sour Patch Kids on Easter...who does that?  There hasn't been a day where I haven't had Sour Patch Kids or some form of candy since then.  Oh my!  I even bought myself some when I said I wouldn't.  I'm a failure :/  Oh well, guess there are worse things I could do!

On another note, CF STINKS HAS REACHED $10,000 FOR THE GREAT STRIDES WALK!!!!!  I'm so happy!!  I can't believe we have raised over $10,000 for 2 years in a row...wow!  I am looking forward to a great event on Saturday.  So, please be thinking of us!    And thank you so very much to my wonderful supporters!!

This past weekend, we visited some friends in Johnson City, TN.  They had a baby back in October and we still had not met him, so we were happy to meet sweet Nolan!  Isn't he a cute fella?!?! 
Having fun playing!

We went on a hike!
First time on the Appalachian Trail!
Whitney, Bryan, Nolan, Will & I

What else have I missed sharing?!?!

I did another 5K on April 19th.  It was Miles for Melanoma.  I was happy to do this in memory of my Munner which we lost in October due to Melanoma.  I finished in 34 minutes 22 seconds.  Not my best time, but I was OK with it.  I finished 4th out of 12 in my age bracket and 60th overall (200+ participants).  I'm not sure if that is good or not, but I'll take it :)  I won't lie, it felt pretty rough running - I hadn't been running to prepare myself, shame on me.

All done!

That's pretty much it!  Looking forward to a great walk this weekend!  I'll share pics soon!

Thanks for reading :)

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…
