Rant

Just wanted to take a moment and rant...sorry!

I've been annoyed the past couple weeks with doctor offices and the need to reschedule.  Thankfully, its not my CF clinic giving me issues....they are fantastic!  Let me make a disclaimer....I'm not one that changes appointments often...99% of the time I make whatever is planned (a year in advance) work...even if I'm inconvenienced.

First, I needed to reschedule my dermatologist appointment at the beginning of May.  Well, guess when the next appointment was?  JULY!  2 freaking months later.   Chapped my ass.  I took the next opening and will make sure I plan my life around that day.  Heaven forbid something come up.

Next, I needed to reschedule my lady doctor appointment that was this week.  So, I called to see if I could change days or maybe come the next week or so (don't want to be too far off my annual schedule).  Guess what?  No can do...booked all summer long!  How the hell is that possible? So, I kept that appointment and rearranged my life.  Need I mention that my appointment was the 1st week of May and they called me the week before to change it.  I had made plans to be at THAT appointment.   Then, while I was at my appointment, I heard a receptionist tell someone on the phone that they were booked until July 2017.  Is that even possible?  Apparently Aiken, SC needs more OBGYNs....holy cow!  So, I have my May 2017 appointment scheduled and in my calendar!!

Any who...why do they book a whole year in advance?  I have no clue what I'm doing tomorrow let alone a year from now.  So frustrating!!!

Then...I'm the person that generally shows up early (like your supposed to)...only to wait an hour before being called back.  Good grief.  My patience go very quickly while in a waiting room.  I'm an easy patient...in and out in like 10 mins.  Why can't they just get my over with?!!

That is all!  Enough ranting...I feel better :)  Happy Friday to all...enjoy your weekend!

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…
