Only fair....

Okay...  I'd better post a follow-up to my CF post...  After all, you've all been VURY good and not bugged me about it.  I'm a working out fool!  Three days of cardio and two of weights and although it's still hard, my pulmonary function has improved a smidge.  I don't actually notice the difference yet but my meter is giving me some good news for once.  The cardio class is a noisier class and therefore covers any inadvertent wheeze or cough... but the weights class is easier physically so I'm keeping up both.  I don't think that the antibiotics have done a whole lot so I'm going discuss a few more options with my doctor tomorrow....  maybe a little Pulmozyme, Inhaled Steroids and NSAIDs.  (Okay.  Okay.  Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory)  (I'll make armchair doctor's out of you all yet....)

I have to say that I don't find any of this depressing.  Maybe because I feel ironically quite healthy (it only hurts when I breathe too much... hahahaha)  I am still doing all the things I like to do, although not at my usual speed.  I am actually more efficient in my day to day doings because I'm aware of not wanting to waste time and because it takes more energy to do things I'm damn well only going to have to do them ONCE!  I might be a little overdoing the baking...  I think I'm overcompensating -  God forbid anyone think I'm slacking.  Trent caught me "cleaning out" the trailer that we use to haul garbage to the dump...  All he said was "Seriously?" and then he went inside mumbling something.   (Hey!  What?  It was a mess and the boys didn't put any liners in the garbage cans.  Seriously!)


  1. LOL! You rock Dara! Seriously :)

    I am with you on the efficiency of movement concept! I believe fully in not wasting energy on doing things twice. I know you aren't over compensating too, sometimes I just get in the mood to get stuff done and then all the little things that I have put off recently, are on my immediate list. It works, everything gets done and it keeps things in balance. Nothing wrong with that. Use it or lose it they say :) whoever "they" is...Good news on the numbers!

    Have a good one!

  2. "I might be a little overdoing the baking"...

    Is that even possible with baking?!!!

  3. Heidi! My boys agree with you!!! Mike: why am I not surprised that you are with me... I tell you again.... we are soul sibs!
