Thanks Day 8 (My cold not being a CF thing)

I'm home sick today (boo-hiss). No fun at all, but heck we all have to go through it. Thankfully I don't feel that it is respiratory at all. My FEV1 is great, my lungs are clear, and my sinuses are behaving. What I do have is a lovely fever, chills, and body aches sort of deal. Still, I'd rather it be something like this than something with my lungs. No thank you!

So today I'll be spending the day in bed snuggling with my dogs. I'll be wrapped up in huge comforters, have a heating pad on my back, watching TV (Food Network of course) all day long, while sweating out this nasty thing.

Yes it totally stinks that I'm feeling under the weather, but I'm sure thankful it doesn't appear not a CF thing :)

I am glad your cold isn't CF related. I have been following your blog for the past few weeks and have seen that you monitor your FEV1 score. I was wondering where you purchased this and the name of the unit? I would like to start monitoring my FEV1. Since the middle of October I have started running and have noticed a major difference in my lung health. I know that exercise is the key for healthy lungs for us cfers. Thanks for any information!
