Europe Trip

Will and I just had the pleasure of a 12 day trip to Europe...and to say it was fantastic is an understatement.  Our journey began with a quick stop in London.  Our hotel was right by Westminster Abbey and Big Ben.  So we did lots of walking that day exploring the city.

Westminster Abbey
Big Ben
Buckingham Palace 
We couldn't get in the gates :(  The Queen must have forgot I was coming to town.

Then, we headed to Dublin to meet up with some friends.  Here are some of the highlights:

Going to the Boston College vs GA Tech Football game...it was a bit rainy.
Dana is hard to spell

Yep - met Chris Soules (only you Bachelor fans would recognize him :))  He was super sweet!


Malahide Castle


The Irish Sea

Will got stuck with some of the ladies bags ;)
I loved the Sheep!

Stuffing my face...as usual!
Last dinner in Dublin

Will and I headed back to London for another day before our flight back to the US.  Love the view from our hotel room.


I cannot wait to get back to Ireland. The sites were beautiful, people so kind and welcoming.  I loved it!!  Next time, gonna hit the west coast...can't wait!!!

For those wondering...no I did not take my vest, but I did bring my new Aerobika.  I wasn't perfect and didn't use it every day but I tried.  There was tons of walking so I got some exercise in at least!

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…

CF Updates

Greetings friends!

I had the pleasure of going to my quarterly CF appointment on Tuesday.  It was originally scheduled for 11/15 but being that my sinus funk is still lingering around, I wanted to move it up a bit.  (the original funk started here)

I finished my round of Cipro on 10/29.  And still had a head full of congestion, sore throat and ears. Bummer.  I thought I was starting to feel better for a split second, but it didn't last.  Thankfully, my lungs were still feeling good :)  We were at our cabin in WV that weekend and I skipped my vest and HTS, but thankfully didn't suffer.

So, I headed in to the doc on Tuesday.  My PFTs are holding stable so that makes me happy!  More on that in a minute.  During my exam, she could see there was still fluid in my ears along with my red throat.  Plus my face was super puffy and my eyes felt as if they were going to pop out of my head.

So, the plan of attack is this:

1) Take Levaquin 750mg for 14 days
2) Get back on my Claritin dail…

CFF Blog Post

I was honored when the CF Foundation approached me to write a blog about our decision to not have children.  As a reader, you know how much we love our dogs and feel fully blessed by having them.  So, why not share it with the whole CF community?!!

Check out the blog post here.


I was shocked to see how many responses appeared on the FB.  We had likes, loves, wows and sad faces...thankfully not mad faces.

I enjoyed reading the comments...of course most everyone was very supportive and shared their decisions on having or not having kids.  But in typical social media fashion, people take things to the extreme or can't keep rude thoughts to themselves.  So, I wanted to take a minute to give some feedback.


1) I'm 99% sure we would have came to this decision even if I didn't have CF.  Every couple makes a decision whether or not to expand their family.

2) We aren't irresponsible in our delay of having Will tested for the genes...its called birth control people.  And EVERYONE…
