Playing catch up

Looks like I went missing again.  Sorry.  So here's a little run down of what's been going on since my last post.

1) I turned 34!! Woohoo!  I love birthdays!!  We kept it pretty simple - did dinner out with our friends and just enjoyed our time together.

Love my Preston & Lilly!
2) We went to North Dakota!  We visited Will's side of the family which we haven't seen in a VERY long time.  I can't believe it was almost 9 years since I was up there.  How horrible is that?  We had a FABULOUS time celebrating his cousins wedding and just catching up with family.

3) TMI - I got my IUD replaced.  🙈

4) My brother, sister-in-law, nephew and niece visited and of course I cherished every minute.  We didn't get a whole lot of time together, but it was fabulous.  We were able to celebrate their birthdays while they were here.  I've never missed a birthday with them and don't plan on it!

That smile 💗
Super heroes!!


5) We went to our cabin in WV for 2 weeks!!!  I totally checked out of life, but man was it awesome. My dad, stepmom & sisters came for a visit while we were there (their first time seeing the place)!

They love camp!
They actually posed themselves!

6) Sarge and Stella celebrated their 6th birthday!!  I don't know how my little butterballs have gotten so old.


7) I went to the cardiologist to see what the deal with my heart fluttering/palpitations (here is where I first talked about them).  My appointment went well.  Unfortunately the palpitations have continued here and there - still don't know why.  So, I will go in 2 weeks for an echocardiogram and will then have a heart monitor for 48 hours.  Hopefully, my heart will misbehave during one of these tests so they can see what its doing.  So, stay tuned on those updates.

That's about it on my end!  Hope everyone is enjoying their summer!

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…

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 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…
