Rhomboid, Schmomboid

What is a rhomboid?  Nope, its not that shape from Geometry class...that's a rhombus.  No, it's not something in outer space...those are asteroids.

It's a muscle in your back, that helps work your shoulder blade.  That SOB can cause lots of pain...I know!!  After several days of back pain, I started having pain and numbness down my left arm...so I figured I better hit the doctor.  I went to a Doc in a Box, as I like to say, on Sunday.  After a quick examination, she said I have strained my rhomboid and its spasming which is causing the left arm issues.  Good grief!

So, I got a shot in my butt for the inflammation and some 800mg ibuprofen to take 3 times a day.  I'd say the shot kicked in around Monday and I started feeling pretty good.  But, it must have worn off cause last night the pain was back and I have discomfort in my left arm as I sit here and type now.

I've been sitting out of the gym so I don't further injury myself.  I did go to yoga today in hopes …

On the CF Front

I'm excited that its almost time for Great Strides 2015 in Augusta!  But, that means it's time for me to get off my rear end and start fundraising.  CF Stinks has to keep on going up.  Last year's total was $11,893 - what?!  And our team has raised over $47,000 for CF since we started participating in Great Strides.

So, if anyone would like to support my team to reach our goal, click here.  I know we can hit $10,000 again and maybe even $12,000!!

Some more exciting news on the CF front is that the CF Foundation, used a photo of me on their Facebook banner.  I thought that was pretty fantastic!  We took some pictures when I was in Atlanta for the CF Conference, so they used one of those.  Here it is in case you don't have Facebook:


As for me.  Feeling good.  Started Cayston on Monday, so I have a bit of the "Cayston cough" occurring.  My airways seem to get a bit irritated when I start, so using my Ventolin definitely helps a great deal.  Unfortunately some ti…

Where I need to be

I was honored this past Sunday when my wonderful friends (and sorority sisters) threw me a surprise Puppy Shower!!  I felt so special and was totally caught off guard.  It's nice that my friends thought of me and wanted to welcome our newest bully to the family.  So, of course, we had to get T-Bone to come meet everyone & he did so well!  








I wonder how many people can say they have had a Puppy Shower?  I had an 'It's a Boy' ribbon to wear, and 'It's a Boy' cupcakes!  It was so cute.  I know I kept laughing (it's a nervous habit - lol) and smiling.   T-Bone is such a lucky little to boy to be so welcomed into our lives!  We love him dearly (Sarge & Stella too, of course).
Being a bulldog mom is my passion.  I love that we have now had the opportunity to rescue.  I know that bulldogs are my calling and I look forward to the work I have in the future to take care of more.  I would love the ability to foster and nurse them back to health.  To teach…

I saw snow!

I'm sitting here catching up on the Ellen episodes I missed while I was out of town last week :)  Love Ellen!!!  And Channing Tatum just came on - yay, can't wait for Magic Mike XXL!! LOL - am I too old for that?  
ANYWAY!  I was off to Indiana last week to visit my fabulous family.  It was a blast, but I'm exhausted.  I don't know how you parents do it.  Definitely not made for kids here - I need sleep and 'me time'.  LOL.  But, I'd never pass up a minute with my precious nephew.  We had a great week hanging out, playing with toys, reading books, and looking for 'reindeer' (thats what he calls deer that are in the yard).  I also got to go to my sister-in-law's ultrasound (yep, I'm gonna be an aunt AGAIN!).  What a cool experience!!  I got to see 10 tiny toes and 10 tiny fingers, plus I heard the beautiful heartbeat.  Words can't explain what a miracle pregnancy is.
Here are some pics from my trip: So, I got home last night to find my sw…
