back from a cruise :)

I didn't get sick!!!! You should have seen the huge amount of pills I took a long. It was such a blast, I guess you'll have to be my friend on facebook or myspace to see pictures :)

I'm in my new place but haven't fully settled in yet, I didn't know I had so much stuff!

The job is going great, I really love it. I figured out after a week or two how to properly schedule my pills, eating & work so that I'm not in pain! yea! Makes work even more fun!

I should have done this months ago.

All grown up

My first week on the job is over. I definitely earn what money I'll get! Having CF and a full time job isn't easy, especially when the people there don't know you have CF or know it and don't really know what that means. I like it though, I get treated normal. I haven't quite figured out how to rightly schedule my pills, eating and working so that I'm not in pain but it's getting better. I think It'll just take time and a little experimenting.

I haven't moved into my apartment yet, hopefully by the end of the month. I love this independent stuff!

As far as my nose goes... my smell is gone again. Man, I wish my surgery had happened!

From Cambodia...

Nose News

For about a week now I've been able to SMELL! I thought it would pass but obviously it hasn't, and hopefully wont. I'm not like a super smeller now or anything, most of the time I have no idea what I'm smelling but it feels so great!

I've also been able to sleep with my mouth closed these last few weeks. That's great but I still want these polyps out. People always comment on how I sound like I have a cold :(

Cancelled :(

My Polyp surgery got cancelled! I'm on the waiting list but have no idea when it will happen. This is very disappointing but I'll get over it (once I have the surgery). Haha.

The whole Lyme Disease/antibiotics seems to be going ok. The only thing that has changed for the worse is how well my digestive system works. Things are a lot better when I have lot of probiotics.

I found out today that I'm 112 lbs. this is the heaviest I've ever been! The doctors are going to be really happy.

Ticks and Tae Kwon Do test results!

Last Thursday I found a tick attached to me. Yesterday evening I found a quarter size rash where the tick had been. Today I got put on 3 weeks of antibiotics for Lyme Disease!!!!!!!!!!!

Funny thing is that I NEVER go outside during tick season, I guess that doesn't matter when your brother and sisters do and DON'T do tick checks before hanging out in the house and in my bedroom!

Last night at the "Friends of Cambodia" fundraiser we raised $700! Over $180 of that went to the Cambodian Orphanage. This was with 50 people attending. It was an awesome evening, more people should have been there to enjoy it! Aline and I also got the shock of our lives when our Tae Kwon Do teacher was talking and said "...Something the girls don't even know is that they are RED BELTS..."!!!!!!!

Not only did we pass our Red Stripe test but we advanced to our Red Belts! OMW!!!!!!!! So yeah, good and bad things happening this week!

After seeing a specialist yesterday, I have a date for my next Polyp surgery (this will be my 7th surgery) it's August 9th. I'm so excited! Finally a clear nose... and maybe a sense of smell?

Details of my first adult CF appoinment

First thing on my list is to go see the Physio Therapist. I arrive 20 min. early because I gave myself extra time just in case I couldn't find it. We talk about how CF has affected my lungs and he's very impressed with my physical fitness level.

Then I head to eat lunch. My Physio app. was at 11 am. and my next one is at 1:15 pm. so I have sometime to eat lunch. I didn't have any cash so my debit was the only thing I could use, and the Tim Hortons booth thingy only took cash, so I ended up eating a piece of each Pepperoni and Hawaiian Pizza.

Then I headed to the clinic and right away was sent for PFT's which went really well. Then to get an X-Ray which looked awesome! and then I saw the nurse, nutritionalist and then finally the doctor. Everything was awesome!

My next app. is set for 6 months from now. sweet eh?

Officially a CF adult!

Wow! I can't believe I was so nervous about the whole transition thing. It went really smooth and I'm really going to enjoy working with the new doctor and head nurse.

My CF Creon Award party went great and the food was awesome, for the first time I tasted breaded shrimp, I could have said it was like chicken.

Here's a tip for CFer's who are graduating to the Adult Clinic:
Know your facts about fertility and Cystic Fibrosis. If there was a point system I think I would have scored a 10!
