This is our 2009 Great Strides promotional photo for the Lucky Ladybugs. I know, we both look like death, but Lauren's in the hospital and I was busy getting ready to leave for California.
The day before I left Lauren and I had our Hospital Photo shoot, I packed and did some errands, spent the afternoon with Luca and Kyra, went to dinner with Chris, Kyra and Luca, and made an appearance at games night. I did all of this AFTER I recorded my podcast for CFvoice.com.
To record the interview that will end up being several podcasts, I had to go to a professional studio. I sat on a couch with the microphone and mesh screen in front of me. I had a ton of fun doing it and talking candidly about my CF. I enjoyed saying exactly what I wanted to say without having to guess someone's reaction or filter it to prevent someone from the whole truth. I talked about many subjects, but I know the one that could come back to bite me in the ass is talking about my parents and the support system they have. I had outlined the entire support system I have in place, and got asked the question, "Do your parents have a similar support system?" And I laughed and then said, "No." Hopefully the laugh won't be on there - and it will be edited in the way where I say that I wish my parents could find some better support. Because I said it, and I mean it.
Currently I am in San Jose, California with friends and having a blast. After re-telling what I did Thursday, I am surprised that I haven't collapsed from exhaustion. Yet. Well, there is always Monday.

Things here may be a little light until I get back from California. Love, Carla
