Appointment Update

Yesterday(Tuesday) I had my 3 annual month check up. I had a chest Cat scan first to check on a spot in my lungs that's been there for years but won't go away. 
Going into this appointment I was a little nervous because with all the humidity we've been having lately my lungs have not been happy. It's been a little more difficult to take a deep breathe etc...
So I had my appointment, my PFT's were 91%, good but not great, but the doctor isn't concerned. Me on the other hand, I'm not to thrilled with the numbers because this time last year they were 99%. It sort of shows that my CF is "progressing" so to speak, but my numbers are still good considering all odds. So my goal this summer is to exercise more and get my numbers up. 
The results from my CT scan weren't in yet but good news is when my doctor zoomed in and looked and the spot is actually not in my lungs, so she's thinking maybe it's some kind of scarring. Hopefully I hear the results in the next few days. 
That was my exciting day, my next appointment is in August, praying for better numbers. 
I will hopefully write soon, I may have a few fun new topics to post about soon, so stick around and keep checking back. :)
Hope everyone is having a wonderful week, and remember keep spreading Awarness for CF this month. 
~God Bless
