CF Appointment

I had my 4th quarter CF appointment yesterday. It was good, but not as good as I would have liked.  I had a glucose test, which always sucks!  I had a late start too, so I didn't get to eat until after 1:15...I was HUNGRY!!!  Thankfully I remembered my protein bar so I munched on that while I waited for the CF gang to come see me.

PFTS were down a bit, but I believe that to be my fault entirely.  I feel fine, so I don't think I'm coming down with anything.  Ever since our Vegas trip on Thanksgiving, I've had a heck of a time getting back into my vesting schedule.  I've noticed my cough has picked up a bit, which I think is a result of the missed treatments.

So here they are...and for fun, I included my results from this time last year.

                      12/10/14      9/19/14     December 2013
FVC                 97%            111%            110%
FEV1               85%            95%               97%
FEV 25-75%   52%            58%               68%

Although they were down some, we did notice a cool trend.  Since starting Hypertonic Saline in October 2013, my numbers have been on an upward trend overall!!  That's pretty awesome!!  So glad I started it!!!

Nothing else to really report.  Weight is always good - too good if you ask me ;).  Tummy is operating as it should thanks to my enzymes.  Exercising 4-5 days a week plus vesting, so can't complain about airway clearance too much!

I'm good til my next appointment in March - woohoo!  Now I just need to get back on my A game!  Vest and then starting my Cayston cycle on Monday.
