going to whistler!

i'm up very early because it is too hot here even to sleep in....well hot for vancouver i guess which doesn't really compare with hot in other parts of the world. point is...i'm up and thought i'd post before i head out for the weekend. i figure if i post in here every time i need to rant about cf or whatever then i should also post when things are happy and well...i guess i'm never healthy...but i can be happy none-the-less. greg took me out on his boat and we swam in the ocean and then boated over to bowen island for dinner. it was lovely to watch the sun go down from the back of the boat.
every day i go to work i feel thankful that i've found a job i love that i can actually do...that's chill enough for me (aka...not running around the whole time) that actually pays well. i'm a wading pool supervisor in a city park. this means i fill and drain the pool, set up and run the arts and crafts table and generally just play and hang out and face paint kids all day. they're at the park with their parents so i'm not responsible for them which is Awesome.
today i'm going to whistler for the weekend to watch my friend stefan race in his last cross-country mountain bike race of the season...the national team is decided after this race so its a BIG deal. and since its the last of the season he and his biking friends are just going to go NUTS and party hard tonight. i'm not going to drink though... too much to lose, my hangovers tend to turn into hospital stays these days. but i can still have fun and nurse one beer all night and i'm always willing to dance....drunk or not! should be fun! actually i should get packing...i have to do my nebs before i go and i'm picking tereza up in 45 minutes....oops! hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!!!

i know you are gone but my boyfriend has CF and a one night while he was in an IV induced sleep, a bit freaked out, i got on line just looking for some one to talk to about some of my fears and just to understand better what he is going through, (knowing that it really is not possible)... then i heard your voice. It's crazy, i didn't know you, never even heard about until i months after you passed you.. and yet every post i have read from you i feel like the world has lost out in your passing. my heart is sad you are not here.

Hi again
Oh Eva, you don't realize how lucky you are. I know you're in a lot of pain from you're illness, so I would hug you and give you therapy and unconditional love as much as I could. The reason I'm calling you lucky is because........you have lots of friends, even though they might not understand your illness. I have NEVER had that. It causes me so much pain that it's hard to smile. I think you can understand how it takes much strength to be happy, because when you're in pain, it's hard to crack a smile. It's hard for me too. You did a good job of looking and being happy all the time. I'm not so good at it like you are. I'm not trying to criticize you Eva.......I love you. You're an amazing person. And I'm so GLAD for you that you haven't experience the ugliness and cruelty that I have experienced all my life. I'm proud of myself for getting through that pain, yet it still limits me because I am sensitive and weak, in a way. I think you never experienced ugliness because you never deserved it. But then again, I don't think I deserved it either, but that's ok. I'm glad I went through that pain because it made me the wise, compassionate, smart, empathetic and nice person that I am now. I think you can relate to that because you always said that you were glad you had CF because it made you the person that you were. I understand that completely, even though it's hard to deal with. I'm so proud of you Eva. You got through it, and you get an A+ because you had the strength to be positive and happy despite the hopelessness of your situation. Good job sweetie. I hope you have fun in heaven or in your next life. You're lucky to be so loved. My only advice would be to try to give your love to those that don't have anybody to love them. But you did do that, didn't you? You helped Meg, and my heart broke when I saw how isolated she was. I understand her pain better because I know what it's like to have an illness and NOT have a support network to help you. Don't worry about not being able to save her. Just by being her friend, you were saving her from worse outcomes. I'm so proud of you Eva, and I hope you're happy wherever you are.
