Outrun CF Summer 2013

The Outrun CF virtual run was supposed to be June 1.  Rachel and I got our shirts on time but for some reason Russ' came late.  Go figure.  We did our Outrun CF on Saturday June 8.  I had forgot to mention it in my "Catch Up" post.  It was a low key run this time.  I didn't plan any super exciting route like I had could read about those here.  We did a round trip of 4 miles.  Russ and I on foot with Amelia in the jogger stroller and Rachel with her scooter.  Even though it was through our neighborhood, Rachel was more than thrilled with the turn around spot!

I "Heart" Chest Therapy

Aah.  The soothing sound of chest therapy!

The first time Rachel did chest therapy with Amelia home......Amelia was out like a light!  It works just about every time.  I was not really surprised that the chest therapy machine made her fall asleep.  It was the volume blasting on the tv that I thought would bother her.  I suppose Amelia was used to hearing the chaos for 9 months.  So, now, if Amelia is fussy and it's close to chest therapy time, I ask Rachel to go ahead and do chest therapy to  help Amelia fall asleep.  Rachel is more than happy to help (my sweet girl).  We have a win, win, win here.  Rachel gets chest therapy done (kicks CF butt), Rachel helps baby sis and Mom, and baby sis falls asleep.  That's why I "Heart" Chest Therapy!

The Catch Up Post!

Things have been crazy around here since Amelia was born.  There have been several doctor's appointments between Amelia, Rachel, and me.  There was Russ' change of command, Tripler's CF Education Day (which was wonderful), Great Strides, Mauli Ola Surf Day, and then my mom visited for a week.  It's looking like our summer should be quiet.  I'm looking forward to beach time.....and I know Rachel is too.  So, because baby could wake up at any minute, I'm going to show you what we've been up to.
