Today was my first doctor's appointment of 2011. I am always paranoid that my appointment won't be good, especially when I don't even feel well. I kept my mouth shut this time even though I had accepted a bad report. Here are the stats:
Weight- 114.75 lbs... down from ~116.
FEV1- 72%! Up from 63%
Total capacity- 73%!! Up from 64%
WHAAATT?!! Both lung numbers are up 9%!! Dear friends, I have been preaching the miracle of Cayston without results, but now I have solid results: Cayston WORKS. Are you listening?!! It took me a few doses to get results, but I have results!!! 9%!! I've never had a jump like that before. I was blown away. Absolutely blown away.
Three words: God bless Cayston.
I also saw today JM who recently got his new lungs. He looks good and his mom said that he is doing so much better. That's such great news.
