Glimpses of Hope

It's been two months since I've posted an update, mainly because I haven't had to much to update on. In January I went down to Florida to visit my grandparents, and enjoy some warm weather. It was nice to relax a little to start off 2016. 
Last week Friday, I had one of my dreams come true. I've had glasses since I was 3, and not a big fan, so I had LASIK eye surgery. I'm in love. The next day(Saturday) I had a follow up appointment, and I have 20/20 vision. The eye doctor even took a picture of my "perfect" eye. 

Now onto a health update. I can finally say I have a glimpse of hope again. Tomorrow I have my very first appointment meeting with a new doctor, at my old clinic. It's been a long time coming. The waiting game is long overdue. I'm ready to improve my health, and hopefully this appointment will be the start of a great journey. 
To say in the past few months I've lost hope...I wouldn't quite say that. Maybe more of feeling defeated. Not knowing which way to go. Having my hands tied of staying, or switching clinics, and doctors. Those with CF know you get attached to your medical team. They become family. You trust them and put your life in their hands. 
It's scary to move and switch. It's scary to think of starting over. But, you can't let that get in the way of your health. 
It's time to turn the page. Time to start a new chapter. In my case I'm going back. Back to the clinic where I went when I was diagnosed, back to the place that basically saved my life. If it wasn't for this clinic, I probably wouldn't be here today. Of course it'll be different...but I'm so excited. 
I'm excited for this new chapter. Though it may be a little scary, I feel God has pointed me in this direction, and I know he has his hands on my shoulders. 
I can finally say I have glimpses of hope again...
