2013 good riddance...

What a year this has been.  I've had a difficult time writing my blog because to quote a famous film star, "If you can't say something nice, don't say nuthin' at all."  Yep Thumper, that about sums it up.  Between spending all of 2013 in different degrees of dizziness, to cataract surgery with its three months of wearing ugly glasses, to an embolization that did more harm than good, to being diagnosed with glaucoma, to IV's every two months with new side effects of stomach pain and mini migraines, to losing more lung function, together with other family stresses,  2013 hasn't exactly made my top ten list.

I just finished up another 25 day course of IV meds two days after Christmas and although I am not coughing near as much or feeling so congested, I seem to be breathless doing the least little thing.  Not sure what to make of this but really don't want to mention it to my CF team for fear I'll be admitted for stronger meds (the ones that scare my kidneys) and I just wanna give my poor body a break.  We'll see how things shake out in the next week or two.

Christmas was very low key this year. Found out Amazon is a sick girl's best friend since I didn't feel like leaving the house most of the month.  Due to my Prime account with them and the speedy "Men in Brown," we were spared a Dickensesque Christmas however.  Even Christina's holiday box made it to Virginia in the nick of time (a Christmas miracle!) which would have been doubly tragic since she couldn't make it home this year.  On a strange but true note, we decided to take down our Christmas tree early (usually wait till after New Year's) because the green-covered metal thing caused interference with the wireless network thus causing all our computer electronics to go randomly on the fritz.  Christmas tree or internet connectivity--we have our priorities!  

Here's to a great new year in 2014!  May I be as blessed (because despite all my complaining, I truly was) as I have been in the past.  May you see the blessings in your life as well I pray.
