CF Appointment

Finally something CF related ;)

I had my 4th quarter appointment on November 3rd.  I was scheduled to have my annual blood work done that day.  With an afternoon appointment, I held off on the glucose test...I didn't want to fast all day - this girl has got to eat!  But, I'll get it done in the next couple weeks.  I know its fine, so no real rush on my end.

I was happy, I was in and out pretty quick.  Here's the outline of my visit:

- Had 8 vials of blood drawn - yuck!  Thanks heavens I did eat or they would have had a passed out patient.
- Checked in at clinic and got to my exam room
- PFTs were done
- Respiratory Therapist came in to discuss PFTs
- Coughed up a nice specimen for them to test
- Social Worker popped in to say hello - fortunately I didn't have any needs with her
- Doctor came in - talked, did exam, etc.
- Out of there!

So, how were my PFTs?  Better - yay!! I finished Cayston on the 31st of October, so I definitely think that helped boost them.  Although…

Who Am I?

I'm not sure where this thought came from, but I was drying my hair and started thinking about who I am and thought I should share.  Here is what I came up with:

I'm kind of shy before you get to know me, but when I finally have a comfort level - look out.  I'm not one to speak my mind openly, I keep my opinions to myself.  But then again, if you are one of the handful of people that know me backwards and forwards, you KNOW my opinions too.  I tend to ramble when I talk, especially if I'm excited or nervous.  If you have food in your teeth, I probably won't tell you...I want people to tell me, but not really cause that's kind of embarrassing and awkward.  And yet, after I eat, I usually have someone look and tell me if they see anything.

I've never met a baby that I didn't love (even the ugly ones).  And yes, I do believe there are ugly babies & kids.  I tend to keep that thought to myself, but I'm definitely thinking it.  Kids kind of annoy me.…
