Monday morning blood draw 💁🏻‍♀️💉🙈|| So for all of you that have done IVs before you know that you get your blood drawn A LOT, mainly to make sure the meds are therapeutic & doing their job, but to also make sure they aren’t causing any other issues to other parts of the body.

While my new med combo is working for me lung wise, over the weekend we learned that it’s caused my white & red blood cell count to drop, causing me to be extremely anemic. Which honestly makes complete sense & explains a lot of the symptoms I’ve been having. I kind of figured it was my lungs causing the issues which is why I didn’t think much of it 🙈

After making some changes to my regimen over the weekend we are rechecking my levels today & hoping to see them go in the right direction 🤞🏼🙏🏼 However, I’m thankful I can draw my labs in the comfort of my own home. It’s a miracle I have a white bed to be honest 😂

This is the reality of CF. A treatment regimen might help one problem but normally causes another in return. You normally have to weigh is the new problem worth getting rid of the old one 💜

Today was a hard day but it was a good day 🤗🏥💜|| After much discussion the past few days my doctor & I decided the IVs I’m on weren’t doing what we wanted so we made the switch to a different combination, which I’m hopeful will do the trick. With that being said starting a new IV Antibiotic is never easy or at least it hasn’t been easy for me since I’ve become an adult. It normally consists of days of my body going through a not so enjoyable adjustment period before I start to feel slightly like myself again 🙈

So this morning I started a different IV which went well but all IVs have their side effects. From there all my body wanted me to do all day was sleep, but I forced myself to get out of bed, do my treatments, & drive to physical therapy. Because if I don’t utilize this time of getting the mucus out of my lungs it will only hurt me in the long run. Today we focused on a lot of stretching which honestly gets more mucus out for me than cardio & we had a little bit of fun with some magical virtual yoga in the children’s center 🤗💖🌈✨🦄

I’m thankful today for my cf team & all the people in my life who support me every single day. Because without them these tougher days wouldn’t be able to turn into good days 🤗💜

Advocating for a cure 🤗💜🙌🏼|| Last night I spoke alongside my incredible CF doctor, Dr. Boyle, at @cff_maryland 16th Annual Howard County Winemasters event! A commitment I’ve had for awhile & a commitment I wasn’t going to miss just because I’m on IV Antibiotics. Even though I’m not going to lie all my body wanted to do yesterday was rest but advocating for a cure, better treatments & medications for both our adult & pediatric CF patients is so much more important than being a little tired from IVs 💁🏻‍♀️

It was an incredible evening full of so much love, support, & hope 💜 I can’t put into words how much it meant to me having so many people come out, donate, & support our community last night. Last night was a perfect reminder that we have so much to be grateful for & so much hope for all of our futures. We are so close to having better medications available for an even larger amount of the cf population & that could not have been made possible without this man, the @cf_foundation & the individuals who donate year after year 🤗

Keep staying positive & fighting my friends!! I know it’s not always easy but there is so much to be hopeful for 💜💜

Breathing is a gift. A gift I never take for granted. Yet a gift that I’ve been thankful to keep being given thanks to this guy 💜|| Thank you for being my doctor, my friend, my advocate, my hero, for the sacrifices you make & for blazing a trail in CF research so that adults like me living with CF can continue grow, age, live, thrive & hopefully live a life CF free within our lifetimes! I would not be living the incredible life that I am without you 🤗 #CysticFibrosis #CureCF #CFirl #CfResearch #CFF #ThanksForPuttingUpWithMeThePast10Years

Increased airflow bias in the lungs does not occur with HFCWO vests, as claimed by some manufacturers. AffloVest is engineered to deliver optimal oscillation. Percussion/oscillation is the FDA Classification for mechanism of operation for HFCWO vests.
