Sweetwater Valley Farms

Yesterday, Chris and I went for a scenic drive to wherever. We ended up in Sweetwater, TN and found this neat little place that makes all their own yummy cheeses. Olivia was asleep for most of the time we walked around, but she woke up for the photo opportunity.

Lucy's Mom just asked if I had mentioned what Olivia is going to be for Halloween this year. I would like you all to share in my disappointment-she was going to be Shirley Temple. Can you imagine a more perfect costume for Olivia? I was going to get her one of those giant snail-shell type lollipops. You know, "Good Ship Lollipop", get it?

Alas, I was unable to find a dress so we actually just bought her costume at the store. She will be a lion-she loves to say "Roar!". Oh well, it's just one day...

Wednesday in the park~

On Wednesday, Olivia and I were getting a little stir-crazy so we took a quick jaunt to the park.

But first, she needed food and the only way I could get her to eat her banana....was to put Reddi Whip on each individual slice.

Now, onto the park...

Ain't nothing gonna break my stride

Here are some pictures of Olivia during Swine Flu 2009.

At the pediatrician's finding out she has the flu...

Here she is rocking the snot that only CF'ers can rock!
Just being herself
Sleeping with Mommy
Wearing Mommy's shoes
Normally, she lays down while getting her treatments. While having the flu, she liked to walk around.

Ain't nothin' gonna to break my stride
Nobody's gonna slow me down, oh-no
I got to keep on movin'
Ain't nothin' gonna break my stride
I'm running and I won't touch ground
Oh-no, I got to keep on movin'

My beautiful little girl~

These pictures are from last Sunday, one day before getting sick.

Breathing Treatment

Here a few pictures from our trip to Houston that I just found...

Oink oink! Updated

Olivia has Swine Flu. She was exposed to it last week at daycare so her CF doctor put her on a precautionary dose of Tamiflu-thank goodness because so far it's kept her out of the thick of it.

Other than the huge amounts of thick, green snot oozing from her nose, she's completely fine-it does have her snorting a bit though. =)

She has now been put on a full dose of Tamiflu (along with mommy and daddy) and Augmentin to help with the snot. Also, they have increased her breathing/vest treatments to 3 times a day.

I will keep you posted if there are any changes.

I saw the link for a video on Ronnie's blog and just had a chance to watch it. I recommend watching it! CLICK HERE and watch the video of Breathe: The Complete Song. All the videos are worth watching.

I also want to thank Ronnie for mentioning the website CFvoice because it is awesome!! It has some really tasty looking recipes for me to cook for Olivia. I'm sure Chris will gobble them up because he can and does eat anything!! Hop on over and surf around!

Family Weekend!!

We saw my family this weekend and had a wonderful time! Once again, there are too many good pictures not share them all, but I managed to select a few. Now that I've gone through all the pictures I've noticed that Chris is only in one (other than the back of his head). Sorry honey!!
