Catching Up

Greetings long lost followers!  I have been wanting to blog but just can't seem to get any thoughts typed out :/    So, just to keep you up to date on my life, here's a bit of what I've been up to!

October 10th - I was at the North American CF Conference and did a live webinar with Dr. Mike Boyle.   It was amazing!  I can't put into words what an honor it was to be a part of this!  I love talking about CF and being a part of the CF Community!
Me and Dr. Boyle

October 17th-19th - Will and I went to New Jersey along with my other siblings and surprised my dad for an early 60th Birthday!  We had a great time - went to the shooting range, went into NYC and had dinner at Capital Grille, then saw Les Miserable.
Surprise!!


We are a tough bunch!
Cheers to Dad!

October 23rd - November 6th - I was at camp in West Virginia!  We have started the construction of our cabin so it was all work and no play!  We got up early to start working and put in 70 posts for the 2 new cabins (one for us and one for Will's aunt & uncle).  Exhausting but really awesome to be a part of it.  I'm not the girl that sits and watches the guys do all the work - I get my hands dirty!  The weather was crazy, we had rain, sunshine and freezing temps...its a wonder I didn't get sick.  Will ended up spraining his ankle on the trip so that was an event.  All is well now, still has some soreness and stiffness, but at least he can walk and drive (it was his right ankle).

The pups love riding in the Gator!

Yucky - rainy day of work :(

All the posts are up!



Since then, I've been catching up on stuff at home that I slacked off on during all my travels in September and October.  Hope you all out there have been doing well!  Until next time...

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…
