Hey everyone. Got a couple quick things to share with you as we sit down for Coffee/Tea/What-Have-You. I’ll try to make this relatively short. As I
write type this, I am also in the process of emailing myself the rest of the photos I took from this mornings “Climb 4 The Fallen” event. I’ll be doing a short blog about this event over on Public Safety Tidbits.
To go along with the above event (but let me first clarify that I am in no way associated or affiliated with said event), I have been doing a Donation Special through my Mary Kay business. I have an event set up on Facebook if anyone’s is interested – Basically what’s going on is that this last week 20% of the proceeds from sales received this last week were to go to the National Fallen Firefighter Foundation and for today I was making it 25%. Plus, anyone interested in going together with friends and getting together an order of $300, I would donate 30% of said order/ $400 would equal 40% being donated. Since the websites (for Mary Kay & personal Mary Kay websites) are to be down for maintenance, I am extending the event till tomorrow. If anyone has a friend or loved one in the fire-service, especially if you have lost someone – this would be a great way to donate to a wonderful organization that helps Injured & Fallen Firefighters and their families… Plus you get great product.
The other thing I want to share is that my doctor has me trying out a couple new meds to try and get my coughing under control. First, he took me off the Q-Var and has put me on another maintenance inhaler called FloVent. In addition he’s also trying me on Singulair. I still have my rescue inhaler – ProAir, and still have some Benzonotate to help suppress cough (though I’m running low and they only marginally work). It’s hard to tell yet, but I think the FloVent is doing better than the QVar was… At the very least I don’t think I’m having the harsh coughing reaction that I was having to the Q-Var (which is weird because Q-Var isn’t suppose to cause coughing.
