That's a wrap on 2016

Well, that's another year come and gone in the blink of an eye.  Why or why does time speed by so fast?  Days seem to drag on but years fly by.

So, in bidding farewell to 2016 and welcoming 2017.  Here are my favorite things from 2016.  (of course I have no idea what I did this year - I have to refer back to pictures!)

ENT Round 3 Postponed

You may recall from my previous post that I was going to the voice box specialist the following week.  Well, that didn't happen.  Here's the long version.....

The following Monday, I was with my CF doctor at the Medical College while she gave her annual presentation on Cystic Fibrosis.  I was there to give my usual first hand knowledge ;)  As always, I had a great time!!  I love medical students and their eagerness to learn.  As I was driving my doctor back to her office, my phone rang and it was the hospital number.  I ignored and sent to VM.

I said farewell to my doctor and headed back home to finish my daily adventures.  Upon listening to the voicemail, it was the ENT office calling to say that they contacted my insurance and was told that it would be an out-of-network visit.

**Side note:  I get my insurance through my husband's company.  We've have Blue Cross Blue Shield of GA for the last 5-6 years, but due to the 144% increase in insurance costs, they switched t…

ENT Round 2

Yesterday was my 6 month follow up at the ENT (original visit here).  The fellow that was working with my doctor came in first and instantly thought my voice was still showing symptoms of dysphonia.  Weird - he never heard me speak before that day.  So, they wanted to scope me and take a peak to see how things looked.
Happily, the sinuses looked fabulous.  I was thinking they might be screwed up some from that God-awful sinus infection.  But nope!  The doctor questioned me having CF again...lol.  I again confirmed my diagnosis and treatments.  He did say that the nodules are still on my vocal cords.  He asked if I had been yelling lately.  Nope - nothing different.  I do talk a lot but I'm not yelling and screaming.  Maybe I've been singing too loud in the car?!?!  
So, he said he would refer me to the voice box doctor in their group.  He would be able to get a better look at the nodules and help with a plan of treatment (if there is one).  So, I was released from the ENT!! I …

Breaking bad habits

Oops...just found this.  Thought I posted on 11/29!

Well, I think I'm finally feeling back to myself! Unfortunately, my lazy ass still has not gone back to they gym.  Uhh.  Don't they say that if you do something for 21 days, it becomes a habit?  Well, its been over 21 days of no gym, so have I formed a new habit?  I hope not!!

November has been a whirlwind.  I was fighting a sinus infection so that took up the beginning of the month, then I spent a week in Indiana visiting my nephew and niece, followed by Thanksgiving week at our cabin in WV.  I'm pooped!  I had a blast though and wouldn't trade my busy life for anything in the world.

Here are some pics from my adventures:

I also developed some more bad habits while I was away.  I haven't been vesting.  I even drug the thing up to WV (not to Indiana since I flew).  But, so much excitement and things to do, I kept saying I'd do it later then never did.  I WILL GO DO IT AS SOON AS I FINISH WITH THIS BLOG!
