As a first time blogger I have to admit that I'm not entirely sure what to do with this space now that I've created it. I' guess this is the part where I tell everyone that not very big on the whole computer thing but that I wanted a place where I could keep my thoughts and experiences about this newest stage of my life. But rather than bore you all with that, maybe I'll just introduce myself so we can get on with it...

My name is Piper and I'm a 26-year-old living with cystic fibrosis in Manhattan, NYC. I'm also a lawyer, a sister, a daughter, a friend, a former competitive showjumper, an insatiable reader of all great literature and some great beach reads, and a whole lot of other things. I'm sarcastic, have a slightly wicked sense of humor (just ask any of my nurses), have as much fun with my life as possible, and am constantly exploring New York and the rest of the world with my wonderful friends and family. Long story somewhat shorter, I started this blog because I recently underwent an evaluation for a double-lung transplant at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, and I wanted somewhere to keep track of the whole process. But more than that I also just thought it might be a fun way to let people know what's going in my life, and maybe even to learn from others who might have been through similar experiences.

So that's about it for now. Promise to write more soon.

  1. Hi Piper! I "spoke" you before on forums (but I am not among the banned from that site), but I saw your post today on cf2chat with the blog link, so thought that I would stop by and say hello!
