To my friend..

To the friend who has been there through thick and thin.
To the friend that always stood up.
To the friend who always can turn that frown upside down.
To the friend you think,  where would i be with out them?

To my friend, I love you. 
Your my best friend.

I think of our "younger" days i think of nothing but good times and i think of happiness.
Running "wild" and being free. the good old days.
Now are days are different; you with beautiful babies and me with doctor appointments. 
But together; we communicate and we support each other we care.
 So, to my friend...I couldn't ask for a better person to be my partner in crime.

Ready to feel better

Jessica has been on home IV's for close to 3 weeks, and yet we don't see a huge improvement. So once again the CF Dr is going to consult with the Infectious Disease Dr. Please Dr's find the right combo of antibiotics to make my little brown eyed girl feel better. It was a friday filled with a yard sale that just wiped her out for the next 2 days she slept for almost 24 hrs straight. Throw in  some hard coughing and blood and a nervous mom and dad. Is this what Pneumonia does to a Cf patient or is it just Cf roaring its ugly head????? A question I would love to have answered. Feel better Jess....xoxoxox Mom

im not sure

Life is cruel.
no matter how you measure it up, its cruel.

cruel |ˈkroōəl|
adjective ( -eler, -elest; Brit. -eller , -ellest )
causing pain or suffering

Some say when you feel pain it reminds you that you are alive.

I'm not sure i agree.

The times i feel most alive generally don't involve pain.

Today for instance, i enjoyed abundantly the time today with my big cousin and brother.
and i think of others who might not ever have that feeling of mobbing down the freeway in the passenger seat thinking to your self "this is a good day" the reason its a good day is cause i feel good enough to get dressed and put on my make up without a nap in-between.

I enjoy every day that i can wake up and touch my feet to the cold floor.

I believe god does things for a reason, why he takes a child from there family i have yet to figure out and i honestly don't think i will ever know. It's not like these children are not loved and cared for. what reason does he have that is so important that couldn't wait?

Life is cruel.

Kayleigh walk with the angels, breathe easy sweet girl.

Acute Pneumonia

Once again, Im taking over the blog for Jessica. I have to say that I enjoyed her humorous blog posts while I was on Vacation. When I checked her blog from the cruise ship I was laughing out loud to her cookie and mojito. Anyone who knows Jessica knows that she goes no where with out her cookie...yes even at 22 she has to have that stuffed moose and that she is not a drinker, but who doesn't love a mojito? I know that when ever her dad and I are away she is well taken care of by all. Her fiance Matt and her older brother Aaron do a wonderful job to keep everything running smooth here at the Benson house. So, with that said let me begin. We came home last saturday to a clean house, Thanks kids. Hungry kids, Sorry I haven't taught you how to cook more for yourselves. Happy and excited dogs. Oh and  Pneumonia. Yep Jessica waited for me to get home for this one. LOL. This is a first for her, she woke up wed morning and was having a hard time breathing. ER here we come. I think they were nervous about her because of the CF they wanted to transport her by ambulance to her CF Dr. However they were able to stabilize her and get her started on some IV's.So this is a new one for her and she is feeling awful still. We will be calling her Dr's to discuss this with them. So, after a very relaxing vacation its back to real life. Thanks Jess for waiting for me to get home you know how I hate to be surprised. Love you....Mom
