He is the Best

Hello World!

I know I've said it before but I'm going to say it again, I have the BEST dog on the planet. Out of all the dogs we have had, I swear he is the sweetest, most easy going one. Max would be a close second, but Tucker takes the cake. He is just a gentle sole and so easy going.

Being a border collie you would expect him to be off the walls all the time and not content with just lounging around, WRONG! Tucker totally adjusts to my wellness everyday. He knows how I'm feeling before I do. On days I have enerygy, Tucker is there to nudge me into doings things. He keeps me active and on the move. Days I feel crappy and tired he has no problem snuggling in next to me for a day of TV and lounging. He is such a good dog!

In other news, my birthday was GREAT! I spent the day shopping with my Mom and Grandma. Then went out to dinner with my friends. It was really nice. I was going to throw in some lazer tag but I didn't really have enough energy to pull that off. So far being 26 is nice. I did get some AARP mail today... hmm... don't know if I'm ready for that yet. But I'll keep them in mind.

As far as my health goes... well it goes. Feb 20th was 21 months of waiting for transplant. No news there. I have my next Cleveland Check-up March 15th... I wish I would get the call before then. I really don't want another ABG. ITS THE WORST THING ABOUT HAVING TO WAIT! Other than sick of waiting, my health is a roller coaster. Good for a couple weeks then it tanks.

Aside from my health sickness has been running rampamt through my house. Both my parents and my brother have been sick the past few weeks. We are due for some good news.

Always Thankful

Hello World!

Its that time of the year again... MY BIRTHDAAYYY!!!! I turn a lovely 26 years of age on February 19th! I can't wait, who doesn't love their birthday?! I don't understand why don't want to celebrate their birthdays when they get older. Your birthday is a day to celebrate and be thankful you made it another year.

When I was born they weren't sure if I'd see 1 year. Then in 2009 I became really sick and it wasn't clear if I'd see 24. So I will continue to celebrate every year, because I'm so thankful to be here. Not everyday is pleasant and some seem unbearable but I would rather have a shitty day then no day.


As a birthday gift Boston or Cleveland could call meeee..... :)

Damn You

Hello World!

Well I'm back in house again. FUN! I was having poopy problems. Wasn't able to go for 3 days! Oye! Stuff was all backed up and it was giving me incredible belly pains. While that was happening my body decided, 'Hey, lets throw in some ridiculous chest pains too.' SO THAT WAS AWESOME! My chest was hurting so bad I couldn't sleep or eat or lay down or virtually move in anyway!!!!! I wanted to die. The Doctors came in and they asked "on a scale of 1-10..." (you know) I said... or semi-screamed "like an 8! 8! Dear God its an 8!!!" I didn't want to say 9 or 10 fearing that would be a "challenge" to my body to cause me more pain. Damn you Cystic Fibrosis, Damn You!

Today is day 4. Chest pain is virtually gone and the poops are under control! :)

I plan on pushing to get myself discharged and finish my IVs at home. I hate it heerreeee!! I'm so bored all day long. So hopefully I'll get out of here early next week and they don't make me stay the full IV run here. Besides I miss Tucker and the other squishy faces. They need me!

So after a few days of getting my butt kicked I'm starting to feel normal again. Now time to decide what I want to do for my Birthday... its 17 days away!!! I'm thinking laser tag... buuutttt not really sure if I can actually do laser tag. Thats a lot of work.... hmmm..... I'll have to think about it.

Oh and I discovered this new game on the Iphone.... Rope n' Fly. I dig it. Check it out!
