~Lungs on Vacation~ {UPDATE}`


Hello...I just wanted to do a post updating about earlier in the week. Well, it's been a little bit of a roller coaster. First, Tuesday, we heard back from my specialist in Minnesota. They had wanted to see me, but we would not have been able to get there by the opening they had. So then they asked if we could go get a X-ray at our local clinic/hospital, where my Pediatrician is(he's the person who diagnosed me with CF at 3 months old), anyway we had the X-ray at about 5:30 p.m. (ish). We go back to see the Dr. and there was the starts of pnemonia, but nothing he was to concerned with, he had said it was my choice if I had wanted to go into the hospital. Well, I wasn't in the mood for a "summer vacation". So, we left, and he had said to just call him if I felt like I wanted/needed to be admitted. The offer is "still pending". So then we called Minnesota back the next day, and they had said it was my choice if I wanted to come down and see them, well I decided not to. So I decided to up my VEST treatments. *sidenote*(my mom and dad have a business, called Mona-Vie. It is all natural health drinks, and there is one that will help the respiratory and immune system.) So anyway I decided to just literally CHUG a TON of it. They are 25 oz bottles and I'm already starting my second bottle. Now the juice tastes really good, so that doesn't bother me. So, I woke up today(Friday), and I was feeling better. Now don't get me wrong I'm not 100% better, but it's getting there, I call it "miracle juice" but it is working. The juice is amazing. It gives you the servings of fruits and vegetables you need 13 servings. So, up until now, I blame the juice for making me start to feel better and you can all bet that I'm NOT going off of the juice EVER!!! It is amazing. So, as of now, I am starting to feel better. YAY!! So, I hope everyone has a GREAT weekend, and will post soon =)


P.S. I hope you all pray for Connor Jones. He losed his battle with CF and Prune Belly Syndrome at the young age of 7. His mom has a blog, http://www.notsobrightandshiny.blogspot.com/ They are an amazing family, and I hope you pray for the Jones family.
