Birthday Goodness

Wednesday was my birthday, and I am now 24 years old. There was a time when that was almost unheard of for someone who has Cystic Fibrosis. Amazing how times have changed. I have been working extremely hard to make myself as healthy as possible, and I have a lot of room for improvement. I have plans to live a long life and to have a family of my own. Neither of those things will happen if I don't work my butt off to keep my health up, so that is what I'm doing. I am on day 18 of 100% compliance with my treatments and medications. I have missed a few days of P90X, but I haven't quit. I am picking it back up where I left off so that I don't actually miss the workouts. I have also bought myself a treadmill. I figured, if I am really ever going to run daily, I am much more likely to do it if it is in the room down the hall. I will be bringing it home sometime next week, and I plan on  putting it to good use! And once that starts happening, you can be sure that I will be keeping my daily mile updated regularly so that you all can see what I am doing. All this to say.... I want to have a lot more birthdays!!!

My birthday was truly wonderful though. I had to work, but I really enjoy my coworkers and the children we work with which makes it much more enjoyable. I came home from work to my husband with a cake that he baked himself (his first ever). It was so sweet and really tasty. He was so proud of himself! I don't know how I got so lucky as to find someone as sweet and wonderful as Eldon! My day was filled with calls and messages from friends and family. I just feel so blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life! I will be celebrating with my family over Thanksgiving when I go back home to Knoxville. I can't wait to see everybody!

Well, Happy Friday Everybody! Here's to doing treatments, working out, and hopefully many more birthdays! :)
