Day 1

Well, actually I was admitted yesterday afternoon but I didn't get here until 4 and it took all night to get all the orders in, x-ray done, port accessed etc. So I didn't get my first abx run until like 11.

So far everything looks doctor came in this morning and says I already sound like I am moving air better than yesterday so thats good! All I have to do is hopefully not get any fevers. Oh yeah and I just got my flu shot and I should be getting the H1N1 shot before I go home.

There are ALOT of sick people admitted right now...several with CF, some RSV and many with other types of viruses so my doctor said to really make sure EVERYONE is gowning up and gloving when they come in my room. Some of the nurses tend to only gown up when my doc is around so they don't get in trouble. Hopefully I don't have to say anything.

Still not feeling great

I still feel very BLAH. My O2 sats are fine but I am definitley way more congested than usual and im coughing up a lot of crap! So I think it is time...

I called my doctors office today and told them how I was feeling so I will have a bed ready sometime tomorrow, that way I can have tonight to get all my things together.

I am just glad to be getting it over with now cause I will be out in time for Thanksgiving and hopefully be fine through Christmas too! Oh yeah and don't forget New Moon on Nov. 20!! ;)

Went to Oktoberfest last night and had a great time! My cousin and her boyfriend came with us and a bunch of our friends were there as well. The weather was very nice last night too so that was good. This is my 2nd year going to Oktoberfest and I love it....what's better than German food and beer combined with friends and family! :)

Me, Danny and my cousin Kasey

~Danny & I~

Me and my friend Cat
(she was actually born in Germany and moved here when she was 3 so she REALLY likes Oktoberfest!!)

On a side note...I feel kind of congested today and have noticed the past couple days that I am bringing up more stuff than usual when I cough so I am going to call the doctor in the morning. Last year I had to spend Thanksgiving AND Danny's birthday in the hospital and I don't want to repeat that this year so if I am not feeling good now I want to nip it in the bud! I will let you know what he says tomorrow!

Another great week!

Well, its Saturday again and another great week has past! I have been doing really well health wise lately and its so nice to feel great and be out doing things with family and friends.

Wednesday was my trip up to Gainesville for my tx check-up. I am doing great (which I knew from Dr. Faverio's office last Friday) but I was shocked to see that my weight was up even more than it was last week! I am up to 115 pounds which for me is alot...I usually hang around 105 and thats if im not sick cause it sometimes drops below that to like 101 if I haven't been feeling well. I don't know what I am doing different but hopefully I can keep it up!

Friday, my mom and I had a meeting with the interior designer of the hospital about the stuff she has pulled together for us to look at. I do like the colors she has chosen and I like the architectural design of the rooms but if I am being 100% honest I am not entirely sold on the project as a whole. I just don't see any of my ideas/suggestions that I gave her anywhere and I feel like all she did was give me the exact color palette/fabrics that they already use in other pediatric areas of there other hospitals and I didn't want my project looking like any other peds floor out there. Does that make sense? So we will see what happens.

Last night we went to a comedy show with Curt and Karen. It was ok, I thought the 2nd comic was funnier than the first but apparently the table next to us didn't agree so they proceeded to talk VERY loud through his entire set to the point where he told them to shut the F***up! I thought they were incredibly rude and was annoyed by them...and they weren't even young people they were older retired-ish age people who you would think would have better manners. I mean this is this guys job and I thought he was funny...even if they didn't they shouldn't have ruined it for everyone else! done now! :O)

Here is a picture of us from last night:

Doing Good

Hey everyone! I hope everyone is having a great weekend...3 day weekend for those who get Columbus day off too! ;)

I have been pretty busy. Thursday I had to take Brodie to the vet for his yearly check-up and shots. I was shocked when I left there and the amount of money I had to spend. I was seriously not expecting it to be as much as it was!

Friday, I had my CF doctors appt and I am doing great. My PFT's are all up (not as high as I want but improved from when I did them in August) I sound clear and am moving air well and my weight was up another 1 1/2 pounds! WOO HOO! :O)

Friday night we then went to see my little brother's high school football game. His school didn't win but he did really well and stopped the other team 3 times from completing a play. Great job Jordan!!

Saturday, I went down to Fort Myers Beach with my Sister-in-law and Brother-in-law and there kids (Danny was working.) It was such a gorgeous day out and I needed sun BAD. I am a little pink today especially on my one knee for some reason...I must not have put enough lotion on it or something. weird I know! LOL

Saturday night, Danny and I and my other brother Josh along with our good friends Curt and Karen went to TGIFridays for dinner and then went to see Couple's Retreat. It was such a funny movie. Oh yeah and did I mention I love Vince Vaughn! :)

Today Danny is helping his brother again so I have a whole day by myself! Hmmm...what to do?

My Week

Happy Saturday everyone! :)

Oh where to begin...well my BFF Amanda and her family like I said in a previous post are all out of our house now but it wasn't until this past Tuesday that they actually moved into a house of there own. So Tuesday night Danny and I drove both our vehicles down to Naples (where I grew up about 45min-to an hour away from where I live now) to bring her all her stuff that was in our garage. It took two cars because Danny had a queen size mattress in the back of his truck while ALL her boxes where everywhere in my car...I could barely even see out the back that's how bad it was!

It wasn't until we were already on the road did I realize that the dust from the garage/left over cat hair that was all over the boxes was making it a little hard for me to breath. So when we got there I did a couple puffs of my inhaler and ate my Mcd's but I wasn't really feeling any better. Wednesday when I woke up I felt ok but not by much so by like 7:00pm that night I called my doctor and he called me in some good ol' prednisone. It did the trick and I am feeling fine now!

I just finished week 3 of Azli and I have one more week and then Fri Oct. 9th I have a Dr. appt at Faverio's office so we will see how I do. I think the following week is a Gainesville/TX check-up but I don't have any test or anything that appt so it should be really fast in and out that day.

Last night Danny and I went out to Pearl Lounge. We have a friend who works there and it was his birthday so Pearl thru a big Black and White birthday bash for him. It was nice cause we got to see/hang out with friends we dont get to see all the time! Plus I like Pearl because since they serve sushi there too its like the only club/bar you can't smoke inside so its perfect for me! :O)

Me and Danny!!

Well I think that is it....I am off to drop Mr. Brodie to the groomer's for a MUCH needed hair cut! Poor little guys bangs are so long it looks like you can't even see his eyes...I say he looks like my little surfer dude! LOL

On a quick side note...did anybody else hear they came out with a Scene It: Twilight Edition?? How fricking cool is that?!?! LOL We happen to love all the Scene It games (minus the Seinfeld one I was never a fan of that show!) and now that they came out with one about Twilight I can hardly contain my excitement. I smell a girls night IN around the corner!! :)
