Update

In just a couple weeks we will finally be saying goodbye to Fort Drum, NY. It’s an interesting couple years. I’ve never seen so much snow in my life, and I can’t say that I’ll miss it. I don’t care how much you like snow. When your husband is gone, and you have a chronic lung disease, and it’s 10 degrees outside, and you’re forced to shovel a foot of snow out of your driveway, you WILL develop a complete disgust for snow.

Miracle Drug

It’s been a while since I’ve written anything. I guess it’s been pretty busy around here. I’ve visited my mom, my parents have come here for a visit, and we’re getting pretty busy with our upcoming move. That’ll happen in about 2 months, but with it being an overseas PCS, we have a lot to get done. Continue reading

God’s Blessings

I recently watched a couple videos on the CF foundation YouTube page about male and female fertility and what it looks like when a CF patient decides to have children. (Male:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-Rzn1KGQHg Female:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_-M9Un0v_0 ) My husband and I have recently discussed this issue. We made our decision a while back, but sometimes we find ourselves revisiting the topic and we are still on the same page. We don’t see children in Continue reading

Spiritual Changes

Bryar and I moved to Fort Drum in 2013. We found a church to go to a few months later. We really loved it. We liked the music and we liked the message being preached. It was a giant church so we were trying to navigate through the different ways to get plugged in when we had to start getting ready for his deployment. I went home to Indiana during the 9 months and went back to the church I grew up in. Continue reading

First Deployment, Hopefully the Worst

My husband left for his first deployment in April 2015. We decided that it would be a good idea for me to move back with my parents for the 9 months, just to get an idea of how it would go and make sure I had support if my health declined. The first 4 months were good. My brother was also deployed, so my sister in law packed up the 4 kiddos and visited for about a month. It was really nice. Continue reading

Schedule

In the past, I’ve been able to get away with not doing a whole lot to maintain my health. All the way through high school I didn’t have a regular treatment schedule and I didn’t struggle with keeping on weight. With this routine I needed IVs maybe once every 3-4 years. I remember doing treatments consistently for a few days to prepare for a Dr. appointment, but otherwise I just did them whenever I felt like it. My parents were really awesome when I was a kid with doing the PT. Then I got the vest and my health was Continue reading

Cleaning Day

I started my month of Cayston today. My goal this time is to not miss/forget a dose. That has happened a lot in the past. So, I finally decided to set alarms on my phone. I’m hoping that will do the trick. Continue reading
