Fly High

"The man who has no imagination has no wings"-Muhammad Ali 

"Maybe life isn't about avoiding the bruises. Maybe it's about collecting the scars to prove you showed up for it."

I believe life is what you make it. So make sure you keep showing up for it time and time again. Get back up and keep trying! It'll be frustrating, but keep your goals in mind and stay focused... don't give up! Your struggles make you stronger, and you're strong! Don't wonder how hard you'll fall... Instead wonder how high you'll fly!! Because whatever life may throw your way all you can really do is spread your wings and fly!

Happy Birthday BC

Happy Birthday to this amazing woman.... 

It takes a village to maintain CF and I can't imagine growing up without her advice and expertise. I am blessed to call Barbara Chatfield aka "BC" a friend, not only is she a great friend but she was my pediatric CF Doc. I'm pretty sure I am responsible for a gray hair or two... Ha Ha!! I mean, she did have to put up with me throughout my teenage years. She deserves an award for that alone, so naturally in November of 2009 she was awarded the Love To Breathe® Award. 

"They say you have never really lived until you have done something for someone that can never repay you" and this quote couldn't be more true, I truly believe she is one of the many reasons why I, and I am sure many others are still here today. Happy Birthday BC! I hope your day is absolutely wonderful!

Small pieces... Make the BIG picture.

Imagine putting together a puzzle with infinite small pieces?! 
What a pain in my lung... Literally! Ha! 

These lungs of mine are so complex and keep me on my toes at all times. I feel like they are a puzzle with too many small pieces to count. I had a professional photo shoot today, ok fine they were X-rays ; ) but I had the chance to see my pearly whites. This is my actual x-ray, Im pretty sure they keep getting whiter and whiter... my teeth should probably take note ; )  ha. 

Well the good news is I don't have a pneumothorax which could also be referred to as a collapsed lung. The bad news is we aren't to sure what is causing this little yet significant pain of mine. Most likely it's just a cluster of infection, so hopefully I can remedy it soon with even more treatments and airway clearance or it might be time to throw some antibiotics in the mix. 

See I wasn't kidding, more small pieces to my puzzle. Although, I'm not sure I'd have it any other way... after all it's the small pieces that make the BIG picture.

Be Infinite!

Fear is an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat.... CF is fear. Living with fear lurking over you can be daunting at times. Remember to rise up and be stronger than your fears and show them how brave you are, be infinite. Distinguish every fear with your breath. Tell your story, inspire, and be fearless while doing so... You just never know when you can make a difference.
