Oliver Hooks Up The Vest

Last evening, after our morning events at the ER, Oliver wanted to help Bennett "do his vest." So, for about five minutes, Oliver sat over at the Vest by himself getting it ready (aka pushing random buttons and putting the hoses in any spot he could find).

The video shows an unwilling participant in the video so you don't actually see Bennett sit down for his vest.  But sweet Oliver was so very proud of himself!  He never really knew he hadn't gotten the hoses quite right.


  1. Lol, that's hilarious how he's got it hooked up. What a great big brother to try to help though. :) Our vest only has one hose, I don't know what I would do with two hoses everywhere!

  2. :) Thanks so much for your comment. It's hard to believe that something I said would have an impact on someone else.

    It's really been within the past year that I stopped thinking, "I'm going to beat CF, I'm going to control it, I WILL stop it!". Lately, I think more like, "Yes, there is a decline, yes, there is progression. I might slow it, or I may not slow it, but I will do everything I can to make him feel as healthy as possible." Quality of life, not quantity.

    You encourage me on almost a daily basis. Thank you so much. :)
