What's up Doc?

On Monday we went to my doctor...the good news is that my lung function (despite my symptoms) is great! Praise the Lord, He has sustained these lungs and keeps them going, even when I feel yucky. I finished my antibiotics (except the inhaled one) and I'm doing well! This morning I decided to do my therapy in a unique way... if you have ever seen me do my vest, you might understand this... I strap on a black plastic vest which blows up with air, and essentially just SHAKES me! The purpose is to shake loose any mucus that is in my lungs, so that it can't get comfy and get bacteria! Anyway...I decided that today I will do my vest backwards... and it Worked! I felt a lot better after putting on my vest backwards, because the back of it (which I put in the front) reaches my upper lobes of my lungs in the front, and helps them to "wake up" and work better! YAY for silly things that make my lungs feel better.
Anyway, enough about myself... let's get on to business-
This week has been crazy busy for Peter. He is finishing up his first summer class. It was a preaching class and he had to preach twice in a week! He finished his second sermon this morning, and now on to studying for his final tomorrow morning. What a trouper!And he is loving the class and can't wait till Hebrew starts in a couple of weeks! I was already watching utube kids videos that teach the aleph bet  (Hebrew Alphabet)! I might have been singing by myself in the living room the other night...hmmm
I babysat this morning, and that is always fun for me!
Well, unfortunately I don't have any pictures to share because I am charging my camera battery (which has been dead for a number of days- oops!)
Thanks for keeping up with us!
One more thing... I think I will do a series of posts to serve as a "Cystic Fibrosis awareness/teaching". I will post pictures and videos, so that you all will know a bit better what we are talking about when we say "the Vest" and stuff!
