This is my blog.

This is my blog, so I'm just going to be honest about something, something I don't talk openly about very often.....

I hate CF....like hate it with a passion. 99.9% of the time I do really well and I don't worry about Dave hardly ever. But right now I hate it. This is his second time in the hospital this year, both times because of a collapsed lung. His lungs are functioning at 16%, and yet not one complaint.

He has an amazing wife now who is a total trooper and is perfect for him. But I feel for her too. She is so faithful and so good.

There are a lot of unknowns, they can't do surgery at 16% lung function yet he is due for surgery this time around as part of his tune-up, and its the unknowns with last-minute hospital stays that just sometimes get me emotional in those quiet moments when I can't help but think about it.

But, the Lord's in charge. I need to just trust in Him. His plans never fail. Thank heavens for that.

Love your Dave and Summer! Wish I could be there now! One day this world will be CF free, and that will be the best. day. ever.

I love reading lately. I just re-read hunger games and LOVED it even more than the first time through, and that's saying something. Well, I have a whole list of books I am wanting to read right now.

Watership Down
The Little Giant of Aberdeen County
Peachtree Road
The Help
Young Woman and the Sea
The Girl who played with Fire
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Still Alice
Saving Cee-Cee Honeycutt
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
The Secret Life of Bees

Long list I know, but I love reading, and other than 2 or 3 that were around a 3.97, all these books have been rated over a 4 on goodreads.com. That says something about how good they are.

I just started Young Woman and The Sea and I love love love it. You should read it. Pronto.

JUST what the doctor ordered!

So, I've been a working fool lately, working 8-5 plus some (code: a lot)
I met a guy, talked to this guy a LOT, really liked this guy, split a plane ticket to go see this guy, realized this guy was just like every other guy, and cancelled my flight.
I needed a getaway. BADLY.

And that's exactly what I got. Thank you Howells, Stokers, and of course my wonderful fam for a GREAT weekend! Its exactly what the doctor ordered!
