I love where i live. I live in Wisconsin and it's so beautiful. You get to see all 4 seasons, my favorites are definitely Spring and Fall. Something about drury, sloppy, rainy, muddy days i just love, I'm not sure why. I like summer but with my CF I don't like it too humid, and yes believe it or not I do like winter. The snow is so pretty, but this winter is testing my patience. I believe one site said out of 30+ days all of them have been in the negative. But the -30* days made me consider my liking for winter. I'm not one to complain because the cold air does actually help and make my lungs feel good but I'm ready for warmer weather. Just today we got more snow.
This is the drift in front of our garage:
Above my knees.
And this was after some tracks:
But it does give me an excuse to stay in sweats all day.
Even Bo isn't impressed that the snow is taller than him:
BUT: one thing I know for sure, the snow can't stay forever :)
Has it really been 2 months since I blogged last. Yikes. I'm doing great. In January I had my annual studies at the dr, thankfully all my levels are normal. Then I had PFT's a few weeks later and they were...100%!!! I have never in my life seen my number. I'm so happy.
Here is a picture of my PFT chart:
Things have been very good, despite the very long and cold Wisconsin winter. Spring will come eventually I'm sure :)
Bo Is doing good. He's over the cold weather and snow. He wants to take walks again, and quite frankly I don't blame him but I do love sometimes just sitting in comfy clothes and having Bo on my lap, like he is as I type this,and doing nothing.
I don't know to much else. I hope everyone else is doing well. I'll write soon!
My name is Paige. I have Cystic Fibrosis. I am a fun loving, small town girl with big dreams...trying to live my life to the fullest. I am a Christian. My family is my priority. I was homeschooled since my freshman year of high school and graduated a year earlier at age 17-Senior 2012. I love anywhere with an ocean. My favorite color is Pink of course. I have a crazy love for food. I love to travel. I want to see the world. I enjoy spending time with my family & friends. In March 2011 I went on my Make~A~Wish trip to the most beautiful island in the world, Bora Bora. I have written a book called, Growing up with Cystic Fibrosis the first 13 years. It's about living with Cystic Fibrosis (an incurable illness). I wrote the book to help people. I have recently started to get involved with public speaking. I believe that my purpose in life is to help people, and to make a difference. I believe that God put me on this earth for a reason, and i'm not going to let him down.

"I was asked once, "If you could tell the world one thing about Cystic Fibrosis, what would it be?" And it is this. That CF hurts. It hurts physically when it feels like sandpaper is scraping your lungs with every breath. It hurts mentally to plan for and get excited about a life you may never lead. It hurts to fall in love because ...CF can be an extraordinary burden on anyone who is not meant to deal with it, most times resulting in rejection and loneliness. It hurts to watch dozens of friends lose this fight that they never deserved or asked for. But most of all, it would hurt to not have been blessed with the chance to experience life through a CFer's eyes: No love is half-given, no day is not lived to its fullest and NOTHING is taken for granted." ~posted by a fellow CFer
