More Days!!!!!

~Sorry I have been MIA... Been busy. I had 2 events this last weekend. Fri I was part of a gallery stroll which was a lot of fun it was my first time every doing something like that. My event on Sat was awesome we raised a lil over $1700 for CF, $200 was from one of my paintings so that is always exciting. The event was put on by the WandA show which is a reality show that two of my girlfriends are starting, I can't wait to see what happens with that. 

~The babies Bday outfits arrived today they are SO CUTE!!!! They were handmade with pug love from Pug possessed click here to read her blog and visit her Etsy store. Be on the lookout for photo shoot pics soon!

~I am working on finalizing plans for the weekend. Ricki and Mariel come into town Fri! I can't wait. We are going to have a slumber party one night. The Big Bday Bash is Sun night!! 

~Started Aztreonam today! I have been having this pain in my upper left lung I got an x ray for it a week and a half ago and it showed nothing besides the usual. So I am stumped they think it could be a plug or at the time I was on TOBI and they thought that could of broken thru some infection or something. But today it was still bugging so I hope the Aztreonam can put a stop to it! They asked me to rate the pain from 1-10 well I am never good at that so I answered with annoying. Cause I feel great besides that and I blew the best on my peak flow meter in a long time so like I said I am stumped! it comes and goes so I wouldn't mind it going til after my Bday. 

~Well I can't think of anything else..... So have a fab night everyone! Muah!

Lifes lil guide

    1.       Drink plenty of water. 
    2.       Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner 
              like a beggar. 
    3.       Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less 
              food that is manufactured in plants. 
    4.       Live with the 3 E's -- Energy, Enthusiasm and Empathy.

    8.       Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day. 
    9.       Sleep for 7 hours. 
    10.     Take a 10-30 minute walk daily. And while you walk, 
    11.    Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what 
            their journey is all about. 
    12..   Don't have negative thoughts or things you cannot control. 
            Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment. 
    13.    Don't overdo. Keep your limits. 
    14.    Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does. 
    15.    Don't waste your precious energy on gossip. 
    16.    Dream more while you are awake. 
    17.    Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need. 
    18..   Forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner with 
            His/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness. 
    19.    Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate 
    20.    Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present. 
    21.    No one is in charge of your happiness except you. 
    22.    Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. 
            Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away 
            like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime. 
    23.    Smile and laugh more. 
    24.    You don't have to win every argument. Agree to Disagree.
    25.    Call your family often. 
    26.    Each day give something good to others. 
    27.    Forgive everyone for everything. 
    28..   Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of  6 
    29.    Try to make at least three people smile each day. 
    30.    What other people think of you is none of your business. 
    31.    Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your family and
              friends will. Stay in touch. 
    32.    Do the right thing! 
    33.    Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful. 
    34.    GOD heals everything. 
    35.    However good or bad a situation is, it will change. 
    36.    No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up. 
    37.    The best is yet to come. 
    38.    When you awake alive in the morning, thank GOD for it. 
    39.    Your Inner most is always happy. So, be happy.

May is

Officially Cystic Fibrosis Awareness month and we all know we have some awareness to spread. The need for a cure is greater than ever! So keep on keeping on so we can all make CF stand for CURE FOUND!!!

I like to read memoirs about the inspiring stories of people with CF. I was recently asked to read 

SIXTY FIVE ROSES: A sister's Memoir By Heather Summerhayes

I was excited to read it, Pam was diagnosed back in 1958 when she was 4 years old and back then really there was no treatment for children with CF. They weren't expected to live much into their child hood. So during those times the diagnosis was a bit depressing. However, Pam defied the limits and lived life to the fullest and taught her older sister Heather how to live.

I thought it was very interesting to see how far we have come from 1958 to 2009. Just think we now have 30+ drugs in the pipeline, these drugs will allow patients to hopefully live well beyond the 37 year old life expectancy. There is so much more hope now then there was in 1958.
I also thought it was very interesting to hear the perspective of a healthy sibling living with a CFer. It made me reflect a lil bit on what my bros maybe had to deal with and still do to this day.

 Click here to read more about the author and this book. A portion of the proceeds from this book are going to the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Celine wrote the forward and Eva Longoria has purchased the film rights. Have any of you read this book? I would love to know what you thought.
