Mondays appointment


This mornings appointment went REALLY good! So last May I had my gallbladder removed and ever since I had that done my lungs never really recovered from the anesthetic. All they have done is slowly gone downhill. In may my PFTs were 32%, then they dropped down to 29% at the end of june and stayed there for about a month. And then they dropped down to 24%, which is the lowest they've been since I was six. Well today they were 37%!!!!! My PFTs haven't been that good in almost over a year!! This is VERY GOOD news!!! My mom and boyfriend were literally jumping up and down, it was funny! 

Since my lungs are doing so well, I get to go to california to see one of my best friends, Melissa!!! I'm super excited!! My mom is a little worried though because last time I went to see her I came back with a tattoo (the money I used for the tattoo was suppose to be money for food while I was down there)!! Lol. I really hope I can come up with the money to go see her because I miss her lots and lots :) 

Please keep your fingers crossed that the rest of my appointments this week go as well as this one did!! I'll post tomorrow after I'm done at the doctor. Thank you all for your support! 

Please feel free to share the link to my blog! A reason I am doing this is to raise awareness for CF!

  1. Hello!
    My 15 mos old daughter has CF and I have been following your blog! Thanks for sharing what you go through with the world. You sound like an amazing and brave young woman. I'm so glad to hear that your PFT's are better! I hope you are able to visit your friend soon!


    1. Thank you Sarah, that was very sweet of you to say :)

      If you ever have any questions about CF or if you need someone to talk to about it (I know it can be very hard to deal with at times) please feel free to talk to me/ask me anything! I have many years of experience lol!!
