Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones who don't, and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it. – Harvey Mackay

A lot of what I write about is our family. Lexi’s cystic fibrosis was really the catalyst for us sharing. You won’t often hear from Lexi. She likes that I share (we never share anything without the girls ok), but isn’t the writing/talking kind of girl. So I thought today I would share a little about Lexi.

Lexi is 16. She isn’t defined by her illnesses, but the impact her entire life. So while this isn’t a post about illness, here is a brief list of what impacts her.

Great Strides Cystic Fibrosis walk 2019
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Asthma
  • Eosinophilic Esophagitis
  • Gastrointestinal Dysmotility
  • Normocytic Anemia
  • Vocal Cord Dysfunction
  • Acute Exacerbation of Asthma – Cough Variant
  • Gastroesophagel Reflux
  • Chronic Pain Disorder (Epigastric, Periumbilical, generalized abdomen)
  • ADD and Anxiety

Now that we have that out of the way, let’s meet Lexi. I caution you. She’s a girl of few words.

Sweet 16 Birthday

What are your favorite things… Music, and my dog Angel.

Why do you love your dog… Shes perfect for me. She is my temperament.

Her Boxer Angel

Are you sad you don’t go to traditional high school… Not really. I didn’t enjoy it. I was too miserable. I never got to really experience it. I was home more than I was there.

Is there anything you feel like you miss out on… Not really. I don’t talk to people. I don’t like texting. I feel weird talking on the phone. I don’t share things.

What makes you happy… reading, videos, music, my dog

If you could have as many dogs as you wanted, what would you have… 2 boxers and 2 shih tzus

If you could meet anyone, who would you meet and why… Nate Buzolic (actor). Because he is in tune with his faith, and travels the world. I think that’s cool.

If you could travel anywhere, where would it be… Greece, because I like mythology and their culture. Or London, because I would like to visit the castles. Or Egypt , because of the pyramids, but I can’t go there because of the dust.

If you could live anywhere, where would you live… Hawaii, because it’s Hawaii. Or Paris, because it is beautiful. Or New Orleans, because it’s so lively. There are so many places…

If you could drive any car what would it be… Black Chevy Camero

Favorite book… The Bond Series

Favorite Band… Why Don’t We

Favorite Movies… Anything Avengers, Maximum Ride, The Covenant, 2017 Power Rangers, 2013 Romeo and Juliet, maze Runners

Favorite possession… Marshmallow. (It’s a purple bunny that Lexi got when she was three. She broke her arm, and her great aunt mailed it from Indiana. It’s been to every surgery, procedure, and hospitalization with her.)

Favorite Holiday… Christmas, Thanksgiving, anytime I get to see my cousins.

Why do you like to go camping… it is nice to get away from everything.

What do you want to do when you get older… Your guess is as good as mine.

So that’s our girl. Just your typical, sassy, music loving, supernatural watching, teenager. Her story continues to be written, and she’s still trying to find her way.
