I finally have enough energy to do the things I want to in addition to the things I need to do. This weekend for example. On Saturday Brad and I straightened up the house together and then we went to the gym. I started out on the elliptical and then moved on to the treadmill. I got up to a pretty good pace on that thing. I was even able to walk a mile without coughing! I was stunned. Tomorrow I have another session with the personal trainer. We'll see what he has planned for me.

On Sunday Brad and I went to church together. Boy did that feel good! I really miss church when I'm sick. Listening to podcasts of the sermon just isn't the same as actually sitting there in the pew, participating in worship.

After church we decided to go see the movie "Fireproof." We had heard that it was good and that anyone who's married should go see it. It's a movie starring Kirk Cameron, about a couple who's on the brink of divorce. In order to save the marriage, the husband works hard to demonstrate to his wife that he still loves her. All in all it was good because of the Christian message (yes, blatantly Christian) but I didn't really like watching the couple fight. All that negative energy sort of put me in a bad mood. Still, it gave us plenty to talk about and I think that Brad and I will definitely put some of the ideas of the movie into practice. A lot of it was similar to what Dr. Laura tells her callers to do--treat their spouse kindly. Quite a novel approach, don't you think?

Today I'm just lounging around a bit. I did some writing this morning and now I'm thinking I might like a little afternoon nap. The bunnies are all stretched out in their cage grooming each other. They look like they're on the verge of a nap themselves.

Healthwise I'm doing great. Yesterday I had a whopper of a stomachache (the kind where you don't even dare leave the house because you might need a bathroom) but today it's much better. All the prednisone weight that had accumulated on my stomach seems to have melted away overnight. Yesterday I looked 3 months pregnant and today I'm almost completely back to my usual shape. My face is still a bit puffy from the meds, but that's okay. My blood sugar is getting back to normal too. I'm still ferociously thirsty from time to time, but at least that forces me to be well hydrated.

Yes, another CF blog (I can't help it, these people are like family sometimes) of a pretty amazing gal who does a lot to raise money for CF. Her blog is beautiful to read and to look at.

The Steinmeyer Family
Danny, Danielle, Luke and baby #2 are all featured on the Steinmeyers' blog. Danielle is pretty handy with her camera and always posts great pictures.

I'll have to get back to you with 2 additional people. I'm afraid I read forums and things like that more than I do blogs.

Congrats on your blogging award.

I'm glad to see how much better you've been doing, despite your recent tummy troubles.

If haven't been at cf.com much lately. I started my own blog and have been so busy following other peoples and commenting on theirs, plus keeping up my own...well, I've just been not thinking "cf" as much lately. But I check this blog pretty often, still!

How are those bunnies?
I haven't read your blog in a while. I have been consumed with our new little Micah. I'm glad your health is better. Please accept my condolences on the loss of Gimli!
Love and Light,
Wow, I'm really flattered, but you are the author of 2 of the 4 blogs I read. :D So I'm not sure who else I would pass it on to.
How are you doing?
