      Hi Christy – good idea.

      I baked 121 chocolate chip cookies yesterday all in one sitting.  Mostly for my grandson and family and some for my wife’s teacher friends (some for us too of course).  Normally I would bake them over 2 days because of my O2 and tiredness. That’s a victory… – Steve

      Good afternoon everyone. Listing wins for the past week, well, my win was on the 21st. I had my 6 month lung evaluation with the capacity test. I was pleasantly surprised about the results. The previous test was a 32% capacity. My test was 42%. I couldn’t believe it. I have been working on being able to breath deeper over the past 6 months plus the pills my doc has me on has really helped. I found I can actually go without my oxygen for about 10 minutes if I’m not doing anything. What difference from a year ago where I thought I would be dead by now and so did the doctors when it was discovered I only had 1 lung left.  So that is my win for the week. Still cannot go into any altitude, so no camping or ATVing in the mountains. But I have been helping my wife and nephew do landscaping a little at a time.  Well, everyone have a great week. Randy

      my win this week was…I celebrated my 67th birthday yesterday by riding my bicycle 67.2 miles, continuing a tradition I established on my 60th birthday of riding a mile for every year of my age on my birthday. I have always looked forward to this tradition, it is both a lot of fun and a significant accomplishment. As my birthday approached, I was having a pity party for myself, thinking that an old man with IPF needed to abandon this pretty awesome tradition. Fortunately, my better self bubbled to the surface, achieved the goal and had a really good time doing it. I plan to ride the momentum from this event for a while, and keep on fighting.
