Things are better since my last post. And an absolute huge thank you to all of you for your support. Sometimes I just have those days, and I know there will be more to come, and that's ok. I am so fortunate to have such great Friends, Family, and my wonderful network of CF friends. So thank you to you all.

I've been running on my regular schedule again and feeling great about it. One of my coworkers today was talking about running and I heard my named dropped that I was "A Runner" talk about a cool feeling! Anyway apparently some of my coworkers want to start running with me after work, starting on Wednesday :) I'm so happy that I've been able to motivate others to start running with me. Plus having others to run with will only push me further which I love the idea of!

Ran a mile this afternoon after work and it was tough today. The humidity is awful, so I'm thinking maybe it wasn't the brightest idea, but It's something I have to do, and when I get a goal in my head, that's it. So despite the humidity and having to stop a few times I did great and even ran further than my mile.

Had to go to the doctors today to take care of some stuff. For one, I have a lovely UTI. No fun, but things could be worse so no biggie. And I got my referral for my.......colonoscopy, woo hoo. I have to have one now, since I've had 2 episodes of intussusception in the last year and bowel obstructions. One of those perks of CF, ha ha. So this week I'll be calling a Gastroenterologist. I work for Gastroenterologists as a GI nurse, but I don't want my docs knowing me that personally ;)

Glad you are feeling better. And good job with the commitment to running! Sorry about the UTI, though.

Your colonoscopy story made me think of my SIL, who is also a nurse and was at a party full of doctors once, and some guy said to her "I performed a colonoscopy on you." Awkward much?

Oh no your poor SIL!!! I'm pretty sure I'd fall over from embarrassment!!! Yeah that's why I think I'll go to another practice ;)
