New Vest Questions / Update / Upcoming Fundraisers

I've been getting lots of questions about the new Vest, so I thought I would post the answers in case anyone else was wondering too:)....

To answer CF Momma's question about the new Vest having the air holes like his old Vest that blow out cold air:

No, it doesn't blow out the cold air, b/c it doesn't have those little air holes. We were told when he first got his, that only the little ones have the air holes. I forget why, something about the kids being so little. Maybe it's not as hard on them or something. I can't believe what a difference it makes in the noise though! I guess I just never realized that most of the noise was coming from the air blowing out of those little air holes! I just thought it was the machine I guess! I used to have to turn up the TV real loud so he could hear it, but not anymore:) YEA!!

Another question I had was if it was "harder" on him. It might be a little bit, but he doesn't seem to mind. Plus, it's probably better for him if it is harder!

Is this Vest for all ages?? Yes, I believe it is, except for the little kiddos. It starts in a size Medium. It comes in blue, pink, and black. We opted for the blue one since he is a boy and his old one was black:) *****UPDATE: YES THEY DO HAVE THE CHILD SIZE, IF YOU ALREADY HAVE A VEST, JUST CALL THE COMPANY AND ORDER THE NEW ONE AND THEY WILL SEND IT OUT TO YOU...THANKS CF MAMMA FOR CORRECTING ME;)*****

Only one of the hoses has popped of once that I know of. My hubby has been doing most of the treatments, b/c I was sick. They haven't popped off at all for me yet...other than in the video on the last post;-) lol

As for a little update, my cold is mostly gone, but my voice still sounds weird;( Ayla's nose started running yesterday:( and Lil' Chris and big Chris have been doing fine so far!! Please pray that Lil' Chris doesn't get sick. I wore my mask the whole time I was sick last week, so I'm not sure how Ayla even got sick! Stinks! We've been playing the game "Keep the Kids Apart." Oh what a fun game...yeah right! It's so hard!! They are used to playing together and it breaks my heart to have to tell Lil' Chris "Sorry buddy, but Ayla is sick. So you have to stay in this room while Ayla plays in the other room, so that YOU don't get sick too." He's usually ok with it when I explain it to him, but still......I just hate the fact that I HAVE to do it and that I HAVE to sanitize my hands between touching each kid. I'm sure every household goes through this to some extent. We just have to be extra careful, that's all. He's been doing so great, we just want to keep it that way:)

At 1:00pm today, me and 2 other local CF moms are getting together to get our picture taken at our walk site for the local newspaper. They did this last year too and it was a great article that they did. I'm sure it's going to be just as great this year too:)

This Thursday is my next CiCi's fundraiser for Cystic Fibrosis. If you're in town, come and enjoy some great pizza for a GREAT cause this Thurs at the Wooster CiCi's between 4pm and 8pm:) A percentage of each bill will go towards a cure for CF if they put their receipt in the jar by the register. We will have a raffle, and for the first time, I will be selling CF bracelets too, thanks to my Mother-in-law for getting them and sending them to me:)
So far, I have 4 Kohl's associates signed up for this event, so I just need one more and then we will get a $500 grant from Kohl's:) YEA!! We haven't missed an event yet, and I only have 3 more set up...
  1. Thurs 4/22 at CiCi's in Wooster from 4-8pm
  2. Saturday 5/1 at Hewitt Cowles Pavilion for our walk. Check-in is at 9am and the walk begins at 10am. There are a BUNCH of Kohl's associates signed up for this one:) Thanks everyone:)
  3. Thurs 5/27 at CiCi's in Wooster from 4-8pm

I'm also having a fundraiser at Applebee's in Wooster on Wednesday May 12th between 4pm-9pm. You have to have the flyer though. I'll be posting the flyer closer to the date:) This one won't be a Kohl's A-Team event though. There is just nothing for the people to do. I don't think they let us walk around to each table and have raffles, so I may not even be there the whole time. I may just go for dinner with the family when my hubby gets done work. IDK, we'll see:)

I think after all these fundraisers I may take a break for a while. I've been doing 1, sometimes 2, EACH month since January. I'm beat!!! Not to mention all the planning for the walk. Maybe I'll do more fundraisers in the Fall:)

I hope to see you Thurs!!


PS. Some great things going on in our neighborhood...I'll share soon:)

As far as the new Vest. They do have a child small and if you already have a Vest all you have to do is call and request a new replacement. They will put you on a waiting list if they are on backorder...We are currently waiting for our blue!
