Can't sleep so I'm blogging

As the title says I can't sleep. Last night I was exhausted so I passed right out even after consuming 4 sodas (I RARELY drink soda because the caffeine keeps me awake). But tonight I can't fall asleep. I had 2 and that was it and one wasn't even caffeinated. Oh well :)

Today was fun so was yesterday. It was little Owen's first birthday! I ran around with the kids a bunch and tried to breathe, it was fabulous. Only had 2 coughing spells that turned heads haha! Then today I had one at Kim's that made her ask if I was ok. She never does she knows I'll be fine unless I'm blue. Well I turned blue. My lips and fingernails were a nice pale bluish purple color. Awesome. These dam spells are happening 2-3 times a day and at work too. I hate having them at work. Makes me feel sicker and shows I'm sick. I'm weird. :)

So tomorrow looks like I will call the DR and see if I can start Colistin. I do not want to do TOBI and would rather be on IVs. I've never done Colistin before but if it works and doesn't make me SOB I'll be grateful. If it doesn't work then its going to be off to the big house cause its not going away on its own. If I do end up in the hospital it will end up being around the meet at Patti's and I'll have to miss it. Bums me out royally! I'm so looking forward to seeing everyone and meeting some new people too. But I'd rather this go away than bring something to my CF friends. So we shall see.

Time to try bed again...night all!

  1. Can't sleep so I'm reading. :)

    Amy, I do hope you get better and are able to go to Patti's. Colistin worked pretty good for me. Hopefully it will kick that pseudo in the butt!

  2. Hopefully its a good book Christy!!!!!!!!

    Thanks I'm hoping I can try it :)

  3. Hugs to you Amy! Oh, the joys of not being able to sleep. Hope you feel asleep soon.

    Kick that cough!

  4. Tell your lungs I said to stop being butt heads and get better!!

  5. Glad you had fun playing with the kiddos. I really hope you can get rid of that cough in time for your meet.


  6. Do you ever use cough drops in those situations? Especially in work settings I always have a stack of them in my purse so I don't have the coughing fits. It keeps the tickles away.

    I hope you kick this before the meet up!

  7. Kelly that's not a bad idea but the tickle is in my lungs and not my throat. Would they help with that? I can feel it in my lungs itching and then bam I cough and cough and cough. Today I thought my veins were going to pop in my head...that can't be good!
