CF Updates

I had my quarterly CF appointment on August 9th.  I left that day for WV, and forgot my notebook so I couldn't share all the numbers until I was back home.  And now, I'm home...watching the eclipse :)  It just happened, we were at 99% totality and it was pretty amazing to see!

So, here are the PFT results:

                          8/9/17                5/9/17               8/16/16                8/4/15
FVC                  101%                   99%                  99%                     94%
FEV1                  89%                   87%                  88%                     83%
FEF25-75%        61%                   62%                  64%                     57%

I'm happy! Glad that the FVC went over 100, just got to work on that FEV and get it back in the 90s.   I was on my 4th week of Cayston and feeling good for the appointment.

I did go early as I had to have my glucose test done - Yuck!  I'm sure that will be fine.

Nothing else to really report.  BMI is…

Pupdate

My little bully babies are growing up.  Sarge & Stella turned 6 at the beginning of July and T-Bone turned 8 at the end of July.

We celebrated Sarge & Stella's birthday at home with some special treats from the local pet store.  T-Bone got to be at his favorite place on his birthday (our cabin in WV).  Unfortunately I was a bad dog mom and forgot his birthday hat and treat, but he got extra loving and sang to multiple times.

T-Bone had his bi-annual check up just before his birthday and had a good report.  We are changing his eyedrops due to the formula change in what he was using - it was making his eyes red and itchy. And then, in his ear (not the one that just had surgery) we noticed a tick like thing in one of the folds. He got very irritated with us when we messed with it, so thankfully his appointment was the next day, so I figured I'd let them piss him off.  Turns out, its not a tick.  The vet said it looked just like the mass that he saw in his other ear cana…

Greetings!  Hope this finds everyone doing well!!

It's been rather quiet around here lately, which I will not complain about!

We had a busy start in July with traveling, but then got to spend some time at home and then back at camp last weekend.

The last week of July was busy with appointments.  T-Bone went to the vet, then I had a dermatologist and cardiologist appointment.

I'll share more about T-Bone in an upcoming Pupdate 🐾.

My dermatologist was great.  I've been going bi-annual since I had a funny mole, but I'm happy to report that I have been approved to go back to annual visits since I haven't had anything suspicious in 2 years! Yippee!

Then there was the cardiologist.  If you need caught up, read here and here.  This appointment was to have my echocardiogram and get hooked up for my 48 hour monitor.  My heart still does it's weird stuff with fluttering and some palpitations, so I was actually really excited that it was being weird on the day of my app…
