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!)

16.  A snow day with the pups:

15.  The Great Strides Walk in Augusta, GA.  So thankful for my family and friends that support me!


14.  Exploring Louisville and the Bourbon Trail with great friends

13.  Going to the WV State Fair with Uncle Charles & Aunt Aura

12. Justin Bieber Concert with my sisters...and running through the rain!


11.  Celebrating our 10th Anniversary in Puerto Rico

10.  Enjoying Christmas at our cabin in WV with the Currys - dinner at The Greenbrier!


9.  The fact that our cabin was finished!!! Still need furniture but its becoming my favorite place in the world!  Love to "River Sit" with the pups!


8.  Loved every minute of our Ireland trip!


7.  All of my visits with Adam & Allie!!





6.  Getting all of my siblings in one picture!!


5.  Being able to help some lost pups!
Zoey & Scamp were reunited with their owners!
Will found this sweet angel on the exit ramp of the interstate :(
I called him Blue because of his gorgeous blue eyes.  I fell in love and still miss him, but we found him a wonderful forever home.

4.  Fun with friends all year long.





3.  These kids get another favorite spot ;)




2.  My bulldogs are always a highlight of every day :)

I can't wait to see what 2017 has in store for us.  Hopefully another year of good health, happiness, love and fun!!!

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…
