My Week in Updates

Such a busy week this week, that my blogging hasn't been up to speed. I want to keep track of my exercising, but can't decide to do a daily post on here, or post it on the CF boards? Decisions Decisions. So here is a random re-cap of everything going on here this week...

* I worked out all 4 days again this week, and feel great. I did over 12 miles this week, lifted a lot of weights, and really feel it in my muscles for sure. Loving the cardio.

*Had my clinic visit at Hopkins. Overall it really was a great visit and they said to just keep doing what I'm doing. Can't really ask for better news than that. I just get frustrated and hard on myself because I'm on Prednisone for a flare up, so my PFT's weren't my best. I'm pretty whezzy on exhalation which is annoying. I shouldn't harp on it, but it's easier said than done.

*I'm going to start AZLI as soon as the FDA gives their final approval. My Doctor was beaming about this which was very exciting. TOBI is making me lose my voice 100% and I told them I can't work like that anymore. We also discussed a lot of new meds coming out, new vitamins and minerals I'm going to start taking etc. Good stuff :)

*I finally rescheduled the big Colonoscopy for March 1st. It scared me a little bit because this week we had a patient who was only 31 that had a colon mass and it doesn't look good. Scary.

*The coworkers and I (and Scott) went to Happy Hour on Wednesday after a very stessful day. It was the perfect way to break up the week. We had so much fun, and I can't remember the last time we did a Happy Hour.

*I'm on the Prednisone until at least Monday now. I weaned off yesterday, but then got super wheezy again, so clearly not ready to be off of it. Boo hiss. I just hope being on an extended dose is what does the trick for me.

*I'm guessing it's the Prednisone, because I was super sensitive sally over the last few days which drives me crazy :/ The baby things hit me on Thursday and I just found myself wheeping. I've not gotten upset for a long time which is good. I just had a weak moment, need to stay positive, and work towards our goal.

*We went out into the city last night for a friends birthday party. Had a really nice time, and always great to spend time laughing with friends. You know you've had a good night when your face hurts from laughing :)

*So as I sit here and look out the window...IT'S SNOWING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm going to enjoy my coffee and see what the day brings....
