Our First Decade

I'm soooooo very late in posting this :(

Whoa!  I've been married a decade! Holy cow!  We decided to celebrate in Puerto Rico with our friends Matt and Brandy which were also celebrating their 10th anniversary.  Here are some pics from our trip (at the end of July):




Being that we've reached 10 years.  I was thinking about how many amazing things we've been able to do in that time.  I'm so blessed to have such a great, supportive husband.  We love traveling and love our lives at home with our bulldogs.  Here are some of my favorite memories from our last 10 years together.
After just about a month of marriage, we traveled to North Dakota to visit Will's family.  Sadly his grandfather was terminally ill, so Will wanted to visit him one last time and I got the privilege of meeting him.  Even with his illness he knew I was "the new one".  I sat and held his hand for a while...it was so sweet.  We took a drive out to where the family farm used to be...what…

CF Appointment - August

It's that time already - CF Appointment!  My day started with fasting for my glucose test which began at 10am.  I lost 10 vials of blood - eek!!  From there I headed to get chest x-rays...that was super fast! Then, the waiting began...still had an hour and a half before my next and final blood draw.  Plus, no eating and man was I getting hungry.   So, I found a quiet corner in the hospital and read and played on my iPad.

When my appointment rolled around (and another blood draw), I went over to clinic to start the next round of activities.  First off, PFTs.  Here are the results:

                       8/16/16     5/10/16    8/4/15      9/19/14
FVC                  99%         96%         94%         111%
FEV1                88%         84%         83%           95%
FEV25-75%     64%         57%         57%           58%

As you can see, my scores are up a bit from last time, which makes me happy.  And I'm a bit up from where I was a year ago.  I was pleasantly surprised as I h…

Pupdate

Greetings friends! I can't believe a month has past already.  I've been meaning to update you all on life, but never got around to it.  Oops.

So, Will and I celebrated our 10th anniversary on July 15th!  I'll have another post about that and our trip.  I figured I'd start with a pupdate!

To catch up on where we were last time, read  HERE.

Let's start with the easy one...Sarge.  This boy is healthy as can be and loving life.  He had some extra pep in his step yesterday and tried to play with T-Bone.  He bopped him on the head when he came up the back steps. I saw that and was afraid T-Bone was gonna give it to him, but he just wiggled his butt and acted playful! Woo...thank God!

Speaking of T-Bone, he had his bi-annual visit on 8/2.  All checked out great for his eyes, bloodwork, fecal exam...he actually just laid on the exam table the whole time...it was pretty funny.  His skin had started acting up again on his belly (like I posted about here).  So, he was put on…
