Happy Presidents' Day!

Hi y'all

Lots going on here in mn!

First - our Alaskan malamute (akela) has started to Shed his winter coat! This means spring is coming (although the weather forecast does not seem to thing so)
It also means we have dog hair EVERYWHERE ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
It's really fluffy
But everywhere
I love our doggies :)

Second - I had been saving my pennies to get a iPad.  I can make all the text on it large so it's really good for my vision loss, I am able to read books and I can SEE what I am writing on my blog :)
I've had it since Saturday and we are inseparable! With the fm system and now this school will be soooo much better.

Third - I had pulmonolgy today... It lasted a lot longer than we thought it was gonna!
Started out with a basic PFT, the a basic with albuteral
Then we went back to see the doc
And she wanted a mif-muf PFT (don't quote me on the name...)
Basically, it's you blow into a device that measures your pulmonary muscles, then you switch so that your breathing in against it.

And just like my first basic PFT, my results were not accurate because PFT's take practice lol
My results looked like a "dead person" (I guess I forgot to tell them I am a zombie...)

My doc said that its normal and I'm going back in a month to repeat it

Third - I put in another order for beads! Can't wait!!!

Last but certainly not least - HEALING HELPERS!  I am sending in my sir hammy (stuffed cow) to get cute little surgeries just like mine! Then he will come back to me and we shall cuddle.

Check out healing helpers here -
Or here -

I will post before and after pictures 
I'm so blessed!
That's all for now! More when there is more,
<3 Hannah

hi y'all

hannah here with some cool news, i just got my school issued FM hearing system!!

how it works-
i pick up my hearing aid and microphone at the start of the day from the nurses office
then i give the microphone to my teacher

the microphone picks up only the teachers voice and sends it to my hearing aid peace (they are just recivers not true hearing aids as it was decided that true hearing aids would further harm my hearing)

at the end of class i take it from the teacher and give it to the next.

then at the end of the day i return them to there box in the nurses office

i also will meet with a hearing teacher every week

this will really help in class - we are working with our insurance compony to get a pair that i own so i could take them out of school and use them all the time, but that is taking a while so we just went with this tell we can get that moving.

wow i can hear things
so cool


in other news
1. we saw lady gaga on wednesday.  greatest. thing. ever.
2. we had skiing sections on wednesday (wednesday was loooong!) and that was fun i got 42ed out of 156 racers
3. i have 2 tuba concerts coming up

and back to the other side of my life,  big appointments start off next week with dermatology, phulomology, neurology, othimology and audiology.

i have an EMG under sedation on april 2ed

that should be everything

hope y'all are having a healthy start to 2013!
