    Congrats on the name change! That's super cool!

    Maybe you could get Harlow her own blanket? My dog has a super cushy bed AND he's allowed on the furniture, but he'll always pick sleeping on a blanket every time. I think he likes the way he can push it around to make it lumpy in some places and flat in others πŸ˜€

    If I may ask. If you aren't an American citizen then how are you covered by the ada with a service dog? I'm not trying to be rude I'm just not that smart.

    What about a reading bed pillow? That will keep you propped up. And maybe the sides will keep you from rolling over. Or maybe something like a boppy pillow. Put it around your stomach that will cushion the feeding tube. Sending prayers!!!

    Can you have 3 citizenships at once? I know dual citizenship, but will you hold citizenship for the UK, Canada, and the U.S.?

    I work at CVS and we tell people all the time to sew a marble or something larger in your shirt on that side so you will not roll over. It works girl. It does have to be pretty but you can use an old tee shirt or towel and cut it and add the item on each side of your shirt. You will start to just sleep on your back cause of this. I know I have done a large marble and it worked for me.

    I think Harlow likes the bed, and a good call on a bed with a head rest. I think she didn't want to get up from her spot in order to get you a blank. Harlow's look was like "I just got comfortable here. Do you really need a blanket?"

    I'm so glad you have UK and Canadian citizenship, just in case, god forbid, Trump gets his way to get rid of the ACA and all the personal protections it entails you will always have a way to get healthcare, even if you have to leave the country.

    Hi Jaquie! This is just a little post to let you know that you and your family are amazing! I accidentaly stumbled upon your channel about a month ago and now I am addicted (not to mention that, after subscribing, I watched most of your videos from the past year =) ). I am astonished at how positive, cheerful, curious, intelligent and king you are! Your vlogs are now my favoutite part of youtube. Every morning, the first thing I do – go on youtube to watch your new vlog. I knew pretty much nothing about chronical illnesses or service animals, and I am so happy to have found your channel. (Btw, Harlow is just something else, incredibly smart dog). I wish you and your channel prosperity! And of course, everyday, I wish you to feel better and to find ways to reduce the effects of those illnesses! You rock!

    Hi jaquie! I watch your vlogs everyday and I really enjoy them! I'm aware that your chronic illnesses fluctuate day to day, but I was wondering if you could get rid of one chronic illness which one would it be and why? Also proud of you for doing so well on your interview you know more about the US then most Americans doXD

    Thank you for role modeling the citizenship process. You are a interesting & educated young woman; your chronic return to cheerfulness after moments of adversity is admirable. Please show an example of Another personal craft: knitting, crochet, books, puzzles, maybe a page out of a coloring book, or another recipe! Thank you for the excellence of video preparation, have faith they will be used towards a Masters degree.

    Congrats on your citizenship! I'm new to your channel, thanks for setting up your intro video, I found it very informative! My grandson is going to be tested for Autism. Je is very out going but has difficulty with change and concentration issues, not to mention behavioral issues. Your info helped me to understand what's going on with him! I hope your feeding tube pain resolves quickly! Your a walking miracle!

    Hey guys. I know this is last second. Someone who's been helping us out has had to pull out due to health though. And I've got a 6 or 7 hour time frame to get these basic videos out to my editor!

    That's where I need your help. I run a charity called PlayWell, and we're starting one called GetToSleepEasy, with a short term aim of helping you guys getting good posture for bed (helping to improve lung function), raising money for CF research, and a long term aim of creating lungs independent of donors from peoples' own tissue.
    I myself have a severe lung condition some of you who've had a transplant may have – bronchiolitis obliterans – and will likely require a new lung in the future.

    What we need, urgently (in 6 – 12 hours urgent) – is a story, just a 30 second film clip on your camera phone, shot in horizontal – of any CF patients who may want to volunteer to help with us in this. There's a rough suggested script attached below. But you can say things in your own way. You legally have the right to refuse and say no to things. In fact, you'll film it yourself (get a friend to hold up your pone,or rest it on some books) and there's a form for anyone who volunteers to do this.

    Also, there's heaps in it for you. You can put your full name and twitter/instagram/YouTube vlog or whatever, if you want. We've got people with millions of twitters/insta/YouTube/Facebook followers. I'm sure you can appreciate how cool it is to be able to do this!

    Here's that suggested script (inside that document is a link to the media/promotional consent form)
    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1rzWu9h_LxheCNH38XpZQMR-yJbmGz6n2hfymXHCw2Qs/edit?usp=sharing

    If you could replace any bits Lauren was speaking with (our former patient advocate other than me and some other patients haha) with your own. that'd be great! You don't have to voiceover. Redo the video yourself. And a smart phone is more than enough for the job!

    Who want in the story? Any patient (and also carers/family/friends of pts) who have had 30% or even lower lung function, perhaps a lung transplant, who may/may not have had sleep issues due to difficulty breathing (I know I find it difficult to sleep some nights even with a thick quilt on). Anyone who's concerned about CF patients in their lives.

    We're willing to give you a free pillow to try, and to also add anyone interested to our list of patient testers down the line. We can reveal our work documents and our cure idea which you can help us promote when the time comes I'm sure! We'd love to have your inputs too. You guys are most closely affected by this. And this is something I'm doing for YOU. So even if it's a few shares on social medias to your expert eyes on ideas we're working on… any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Email me here, or email me at [email protected] or [email protected] and I'll get right back to you

    Thanks!
    Nikhil!

    My Italian greyhound genuinely loves blankets espically ones that are really soft or the ones we use the most I can be sitting in a chair with no blanket leave and get one sit down get covered up and there he is wanting to sit on your lap for the blanket……maybe Harlow wants her own blanket maybe she just wants Judd's since he uses it all the time and smells like him or just knows it's his favorite and wants to see what the big deal is πŸ˜πŸ˜†

    Hey! No advice for your feeding tube, just wanted to quickly say: your videos are informative and often funny, I love your bond with Harlow, and both your dog and husband are lucky to have a girl with such a great smile and personality πŸ™‚ Stay up, sexy!

    Jaquie congratulations on your citizenship πŸ‘πŸ»β€οΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ. Now addressing your feeding tube, Judd needs to take you to Joann fabric or Hobby Lobby where they sell different thicknesses of foam rubber. You could tape it over feeding tube with surgical tape. I think that would cushion it for you. Good luck. ❀️

    @——————-> a flower to you for citizenship! …. Yeahhh, I had a dog who was a blanket-stealer, too … I'd wake up chilled in the middle of night 'duuude, where's my blanket?!' ;)~~~ With Myndie that started when she was too old to jump up in the bed, so maybe that's a clue – 'Jude, man, you've got my spot!" πŸ˜‰

    Have you had a test for sleep apnea? No, it's not just for chubby dudes, I'm a 105 pound, woman with moderate sleep apnea. Until , I got my Cpap machine to sleep my sides ached for years. Now, it's great no pain (in that area, lol). Many people with asthma do have it. Be good!! Stay well. ***Sleep apnea can cause problems, no one ever considers, and it can lead to heart problems including heart attacks.

    So does that mean you will have TRIPLE citizenship, British, Canadian and USA… or does the process make you denounce one of the other countries??? Have always heard of "dual" citizenship….. never triple. Guess I can google because that sounds interesting.

    When I lie on my back it is a lot more comfortable with a pillow under my knees as it stops pulling on the joints in my lower back which are suuuuper hypermobile. Obviously your EDS will affect you differently, but on the off chance that is also why lying on your back is uncomfortable, you could test it. If it turns out to be that, they make these pillows that are specially designed just for that which are firmer, a sturdier shape for knee balance and can really make sleeping on your back WAY more comfortable with a flexible spine. (mine's so flexible when i lie on my back and bend my knees they naturally just rest on my chest without feeling any stretch at all.

    I have found with my EDS I have learned compensatory postures or behaviours often times without realizing it- like for example my sleeping position on my side with something tucked under my stomach/chest to stop my spine allowing my hip to roll completely over- even before I was diagnosed. Avoiding sleeping on your back could be because of how it affects your joints, continue listening to your body as you are clearly very adept at doing.

    Also Jaquie, as someone else who is chronically very ill, I know you get a lot of advice from people- things you already know, things you know are bad ideas etc, so I want to say thanks for letting me attempt to contribute but also I want you to know that I respect your insight into your needs is better than mine- since we have very similar struggles and many of the same diagnoses I hope some of my experiences can help you in the way yours have helped mine. I hope my suggestions are always a help and not a hassle. Something I've learnt since becoming disabled- "It's funny how every taxi driver knows how to cure my illness, but no doctor does"

    I'm a naturalized citizen of Canadian birth who grew up in the US. Most Americans couldn't pass that interview, so good for you, Jacquie! When you go to your citizenship ceremony, it may be a very emotional experience for you and your family! There are usually many people from dozens of countries, and everyone will be excited and happy. Congratulations, and enjoy it!

    I know you are taking suggestions. What about a tailbone pillow with the middle cutout so you can roll to your side but not put pressure on your feeding tube? The pregnancy pillow sounds like a good idea too. Congrats on becoming a citizen!! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

    Hopefully you've either had your ceremony or about to by now, I had my interview at the Tampa office (I'm originally from the UK) mid august and then my ceremony about 2 weeks later. They only gave me a few days notice for the ceremony. Irma might have delayed things though!

    You really do inspire me Jaquie. I never thought I would get so attached to watching your channel but I always feel a need to whenever you post. Thanks to you, I saw a service dog for a man with diabetes yesterday while i was at the beach. My dog was there too. He was a lovely man and asked for permission to give her a treat. His dog was beautifully coated and sweet. And I asked if the dog was working, and the man replied with a happy choff and said I could pat him. When he walked off I felt really proud knowing I behaved well around a service dog and I met a really nice old man. (He was brittish!) πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    LOL. I stumbled into this channel to watch Harlow and liked Jaquie right away. Have watched all her videos for some odd reason I felt I could relate to her somehow. This is the last video of dozens and I find out why I was drawn and familiar to me. I'm from 40 minutes East of Toronto, Canada. There you go!
