My second Blog post

Suppose i better get start cracking on my next post. Let's hope i don't bore you lot!
Before i start, if you have viewed this blog, (which hopefully you have positive feedback about). Then please could you recommended it to your friends, and maybe share it? I'd be so grateful. Also if you could comment that would be great because hopefully you could give me idea's for my next blog or some feedback to make my blog more better if that is what you think. Thanks.
So yeah let's get started.
Since i last posted it has been a few days, so not that much has gone on but it's enough to talk about.
So Wednesday i wen't to college, did some college work then Thursday and Friday i was at placement. Which you should hopefully know is in the Eye Hospital. On Thursday i decided to place myself over at the Emergency eye centre, bit gory but really intresting pretty amazing seeing what people have done to their eyes! Things that are un-imagineable also! Such as, cyst's on their eye, scratched/split cornea yuck, bleeding eyes, gooey eye, eye lid inside out! Pretty cool, obviously for me not for the patient. So i managed to help and observe these stuff and then i managed to see in to the patients eye with a microscope if they was reffered to get it checked out that is. It is actually so amazing what we have in the eye and what it actually does! Pretty weird, never thought that it did so much to be honest. Then on Friday i was over at the Vision Assesment clinic, so basically like watching people have their visions done, (I now know the vision bored off by heart!!)and if they have diabetes checking the blood pressure and things, as i never knew but with diabetes you can get Gluacoma and it affects the eyes! Theirs a little thing you have learnt from my blog if you didn't know that already.

Cheesy quote of the day "Life isn't about the number of breaths you take it's about the moments that take your breath away"

Anyways CF side of things everything is going okay at the momento! (Well apart from the little annoying cough whats come back) But... I am Keeping up with all my Physio and Nebulised treatment's which i always do anyway! It is helping me stay well so why would i not do them and jeopordise my health?
My treatments include; My Accapella (no it isn't the same as an acoustic version of a song Haha!), Hypertonic Saline (Works a treat!!), Salbutamol Nebulised, Pulmozyne (Only when i think i really need it!), Colistin (A.k.a Colomycin) 2million mega units love the colour pink of it!! And hand physio if i feel more productive.
Bet some of you are thinking what the hell do all these do?! Don't worry i'm about to explain them!

Well my acapella is my main physio this is basically a green machine thing which when you breath in and out a kind of seasaw type thing inside moves up and down, and this sends a vibration which is strong it shakes your lungs and helps move mucous. I normally do this for around 10-15 minutues morning and night but if i feel more 'Productive' then i do it for about 20 depending. But i don't normally do this until i have done some of my nebulised treatments as then it would be alot easier to shift! So let's go in order that'd be easier,
Right so i start off with my Salbutamol which is nebulised you can have the inhaler but i feel for a few minutues to really help open the airways at the bottom of your lungs it's worth it, so yeah basically it helps stop your chest from wheezing if your tight chested, and is brilliant to open the airways before physio. Then i go on to my Hypertonic Saline, ugh it is the worst nasties vile tasting thing ever! it's hard to explain but have you ever been in the sea and swallowed a nasty gulp of water? Yep it's like that but even worse it's so salty it irritates your throat but that's why it is so good as it makes you choke and cough loads which helps shift the mucous so it is wicked. Then if i feel really mucousy, i normally do Pulmozyne which helps thin the mucous really so it is alot easier to get up as cf's mucous is really (sorry for the description) glumpy,gluey and thick thats just the way i can explain it tp you. That is why we need it up as if it lies idle this is what causes the fibrosing (scarring) in our lungs as it helps little bugs lie idle nicely in our warm, moist lungs. Then my accapella. So after that lot i then have my Colomycin i do this after my accapella because whats the point in inhaling antibiotics if i am not moving the mucous? But yeah this is a nebulised antibiotic it treats bugs like (Pseudomonas Aeruginosa) See this is the types of bug's which again wouldn't affect a person's lungs normally but with CF it can do. I'm hoping to finish this soon though so that should be one less thing to do wooo! and then after all this i normally finish off with the seretide inhaler this is the purple one, if you don't know what the hell it is. i'm pretty bad with names to so its fine Haha! this basically relaxes the airways and is a steroid inhaler so helps with inflammation and things. Normally this would take around an hour BUT with the E-Flow nebuliser it is absolutley wicked it takes about half an hour including my accapella!!
Here is some Pictures of them...

The first two at the top are my accapella, can you see the second one by what i mean by seasaw now? and then the third and fourth picture are the things i have to inhale from my nebuliser, and the last one obviously is my nebuliser! Yes so small, and so quick! it's broke though as normally you can use it when your out and about too but because its broke it has to be kept in a plug socket in the wall :-( But hopefully getting a new E-flow soon yay! Early Christmas present (hopefully)!

Oh and since it's 1st of December i guess i'd better do Pinch Punch first of the month no returns. Yeah so happy 1st of December guys!! Only 24 more sleeps to Christmas wooo! Hope you have had all your first chocolate out of your advent calender?! I've had 3 i've got three advent calenders!!
