  1. One word: OUCH! That day was different than I expected, but we made it through! Should I give a spoiler? Iโ€™ll let you know that today…. I woke up fine ๐Ÿ™‚ so thankful!

  2. Awwwww ๐Ÿ™ Mary I don't have CF but I have Lupus as well as several other health issues and I get those severe headaches and migraines I know exactly how horrible the pain is even if you move very slowly the throbbing and unreal pain ! You cry but it makes it so much worse my heart breaks for you ๐Ÿ™ I get them several times a week and it is just horrible I can not even imagine having to cough with them ! I'm so sorry you have to deal with all you do. I know how thankful you are for Peter always being right there as my husband helps me alot as well and I thank God everyday for him. I just love that in the midst of all the pain you calm your self with God's precious word ๐Ÿ™‚ You and Peter are an inspiration to everyone ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. It breaks my heart to see Mary in such pain. Peter's tender loving care is heartwarming. Praying for you both every day, Mary & Peter! ๐Ÿ’ž

  4. one thing i've done for relief is applying pressure back against my chin, when coughing, which seems to reduce that sharp pain and strain on those muscles… it may help by keeping the headache from intensifying

  5. Iโ€™m so sorry to see you in so much pain ๐Ÿ™ I suffer from migraines almost daily due to my neck instability and EDS this Ice Kap has been a life saver. Your arms are free so you can get up and move around and the ice stays in place. Its got a fleece lining so itโ€™s super comfy too and Itโ€™s long enough to cover your eyes too I highly recommend this. Praying for your pain relief you are not alone. Stay ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป you got this! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’œ


  6. Have you tried a heating pad for your headaches? I get bad headaches and I'm able to get some relief by laying my head on my heating pad. It kinda feels like it's burning the pain away. Also, try hot baths. Ice packs make my headaches worse. I feel for you ๐Ÿ˜”I couldn't imagine having to cough with a headache.

  7. Maybe try ringing her Dr or get back to the hospital if her pain doesn't ease up? Get well soon Mary!. Prayers and thoughts to all 3 of you! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

  8. So sorry you're not feeling well. I hope you start feeling well. ๐Ÿ’™ I haven't been feeling well either. Been getting really bad headaches as well. Not sure why. Also had a HSG done (used dye to x-ray my uterus and tubes) which was really painful and I've still been in a lot of pain from it. Felt so nauseous this morning and felt like I was going to pass out. I have a heating pad on my head right now trying to get my headache to go away or at least feel better.

  9. Best song for a headache well for my is
    me myself & hyde by ice nine kills and memories by beyond unbroken. Ps this is my first comment on your videos

  10. I dislike seeing Mary like this, it hurts my heart so badly!
    Lord,please let your healing blood flow down and cover Mary! We believe in your word and your love, Lord! In His name we pray, AMEN!

    I use a heating pad on my head or sit on my shower chair and let the hot water sooth my head. Could be worth a try, Mary! XOXO

  11. I get migraines when I get tooth infections,long before I feel it in my teeth. Unfortunately it's season headaches that mix in that I can't tell the difference…im prone to them.

  12. So sad that you have had such a bad day, Mary. You are such a superstar, battling through. Much love to you and Peter, and not forgetting Ollie! xxx

  13. Are all of Mary's ailments related to her cf? Like the blood sugar problems. I'm not sure if she is also diabetic

  14. Oy that was difficult to watch. I'm glad you're feeling better. Being is pain is never easy I have chronic pain amoung other health issues. Embrace the great days. Wake up thank God for waking you up finish you're day and continue on with a smile. That's how I do it most days. If you can smile at someone else atleast it not only makes you feel better to smile. It makes someone else's day better too who maybe having a cruddy day. Be blessed all 3 of you ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. god will heal you God bless i complain about my pain and my teeth are so bad I get toothaches but then I think of you and others that are so sick and my wonderful dad that pass in Jan of kidney cancer all I can do is cry I want him back so bad .. God bless you and your family…..

  16. I used to get debilitating headaches and migraines. My doctor told me to take an herb called Feverfew. I get it at a health food store. I know you take a lot of medications. But do some research. Sending hugs and prayers.

  17. I have a rare disease called Pulmonary Hypertension, or too much pressure in the lungs. I am hooked on a 24/7 IV pump which gives me Flolan every forty seconds, a medicine that opens up all my blood vessels. I have suffered from severe migraine and headaches all my life as the Flolan causes such constantly; I quickly realised I could not swallow additional headache medication every day so I looked for alternatives. The best I could find, and what I use to this day is average tiger balm (it should be available in Walmart or Walgreens), specifically the red one (it comes in two strengths). What it does it basically burns the skin a bit (due to essential oils, it is made for muscle and pain relief) which always helps me focus on something else than the headache.
    It might not get rid of the underlying cause of the pain, but I always find it could help me deal with it mentally a bit better!
    I have been following you guys for a while now and find you adorable, my boyfriend is also called Peter (:

    Feel better,

    Best wishes from Vienna, Austria

  18. Iโ€™m sorry ๐Ÿ˜ itโ€™s a crumbly morning for you ๐Ÿ˜ž. Iโ€™m always afraid of you having a bad headache ๐Ÿค• when you have bad coughing spells. I love you guys so much!!!!!!!!

  19. BIG thumbs up for both of you!! Mary, there's is never anything "unnecessary" you could share with us. We draw strength from you (and Peter, of course) and you're both so inspiring for sharing the good AND the bad! Because no matter how bad it gets, what we see in the vlogs is that you both stay positive, hopeful, & faithful through it all. Anyway, I gave a thumbs up for all the reasons above. But I'm so sorry you had to go through that. But so glad you're feeling better now!!

  20. Aww Peters face while heโ€™s holding Maryโ€™s hand while she laying in bed ๐Ÿ˜” you can see how much it hurts him when sheโ€™s in so much pain. I hope someone love me that much one day.

  21. Mart, I could feel your head pounding๐Ÿ˜Ÿ. Was glad you added an ice pack. Over the years (and I've had a lot of them), I've found that ice therapy is a terrific adjunct to medication for pain. I've used it for back, head, knees and feet. The medication seems to work faster and lasts longer. I used to bring a super-size pack to bedso it was'right there' for me to put my feet on when the neuropathy pain was at its worst. The meds only did so much๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜Ÿ. I've already sent a request off for the help you need to push through this. God bless, Patricia up in New Hampshire

  22. OMG Mary, this headache must almost have killed you!!! I am having migraines too, but nothing compares to what you are going through!! OMG! I hope you are feeling better now and maybe have a better day! So thankful for your supportive husband! Peter, you are amazing!
    Thanks for sharing your bad days too. It shows that the world is not always a fun place!
    I pray for you guys! greetnigs from Germany. sincerely Britta

  23. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘thumbs up in support Mary, you guys are amazing, your spirit, your marriage, the way God just shines through you both! You inspire me to "do what I think I can't do" each and every day!

  24. Understand! I get *extreme* headaches but at least I don't *have to* cough to continue living. I wish God could send you a special bubble where everything is quiet & calm inside & out (with Peter & Ollie inside it of course!) where you could get rid of your headache!

  25. I read some where that if you have a migraine headache put an ice pack on the back of ur neck and put ur feet in hot water as hot as ur can stand as the hot water draws the blood to ur feet sit like this for 10–15 minutes

  26. I am so sorry about your headache. So debilitating! I'm praying that Wednesday & Thursday are so much better. I'm wondering if you need to let your doctor/team know how bad this headache was for you… Maybe it's related to getting off the IV antibiotics. Never hurts to ask, right? I'm praying for you both & your happy family. So appreciate your thankfulness & Scripture focus in the middle of the storm. God bless you both.๐Ÿ’•

  27. Oh my god. I this a cf thing or what? I had the same problem last night and I was crying and screaming and took a lot of headache medicine and it didnโ€™t help. After awhile I just randomly started throwing up while I was taking a shower n I couldnโ€™t do anymore so I just laid down with ice pack on my head and slept the whole night and it was only 3pm! I feel angry at myself for not being able to hang out with my family!

  28. Hey guys wanted to check on Mary see how sheโ€™s doing today I hope and pray that she is doing well we all love her in the Lord loves her so he is with you guys always please give Ollie a hug for me. And Iโ€™m sorry Mary but I canโ€™t remember your husbands name for some reason I had brain surgery years ago and itโ€™s messed up my numbering and I hope that he can forgive me for that as well but you guys are amazing keep the light shining and make more of those crazy videos or Maryโ€™s flying the drone.

  29. Iโ€™m just about to end up in a puddle of tears! Between Maryโ€™s tears, and the emotion in Peterโ€™s voice, Iโ€™m about to cry myself. ๐Ÿ˜ข Feel better soon, Mary!

  30. Just wondering if you have ever tried heat? I have had some bad headaches and migraines in my life and tried heat and it seemed to work better than the ice did. Just a thought.

  32. He is so sweet to you AND YOU are so strong. I personally struggle with migraines and sometimes people around me just blow it off as a headache "just take some advil" but it's a lot more difficult than that!

  33. Please try soaking your feet in hot water and put a cold cloth on the back of your neck next time you have a headache. It sounds crazy but works

  34. When headaches get bad she should try cinnamon and caffeine they both open blood vessels in the head and can help better then meds and I'll be praying for you both

  35. Peter, I love to see how much love you have for Mary and how you are 100% there for her when she is struggling. I love you guys so much.

  36. Awe Mary I hope you can find some relief with your headache ๐Ÿค• I love you hun!! โ€™xoxoโ€™ GOD BLESS!! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ’›

  37. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Rend Collective๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
    ๐Ÿ™ŒHearing you guys sing Brave a few days ago was a great reminder of who we are in Chriat๐Ÿ™Œ

  38. You always make me cry when you cry, (and dont feel sorry for that, we care for you and your well being and we feel your sadness along with your happy moments), you never ever say anything unnecessary Mary,, Peter you are such a loving husband what a team you two make,, many blessings and prayers go out to you both

  39. I hear you, those few days I had the flu my head hurt so much I honestly thought it was going to explode. Have never experienced such a thing. Seriously hoping to never again! Glad you made it through!

  40. That Bible verse and the Rend Collective song are two of my favorites to keep in mind and listen to when I'm having a physically rough day. God's Word will never return void. ๐Ÿ™‚

  41. an amazing testimony to "In everything give thanks."
    When my mom lost her husband after 76 years, she would talk about dad and start to cry and then say, "But I have so much to be thankful for." What would we do without Jesus?

  42. Sorry Mary that you have to go through this. And Peter, sometimes the best thing you can do for someone is just be there for them.

  43. I love y'all so much! Stay strong! Every day on the way to school I pass Frey St. And I always smile. Just thinking about y'all makes me smile. Just passing that road and thinking about y'all makes my day so much brighter!๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜
    Peters hair looks like Oliver! I love it! I think the long hair and bushier beard looks so good on Peter!

  44. I have chronic migraines, and I know it's a bit different than what you were going through, be putting like a hot/warm wash cloth over your eyes really helps headaches. I have a sleeping mask full of rice that you can microwave and it's a lifesaver! Maybe that would help!!

  45. Headaches are intolerable! Hope itโ€™s gone sweetie. You are so fortunate to have a compassionate fella!! Peter, your awesome!! You two should consider a small recipe book with Maryโ€™s art work๐Ÿ’ž

  46. oh mary. my heart goes out to you! I have sinus issues that also comes along with the occasional severe headache. SO glad you woke up the next day feeling better. You're a champ.

  47. My heart goes out to you every time I see you with one of these dag blasted headaches!ย  I get horrible migraines and I also get primary cough migraines when I get bronchitis, so I can't even imagine.ย  When you were talking about the Bible verse going through your mind over and over it actually made me think of something that occasionally (not always, but sometimes and it's definitely worth it when it works) helps me and it's called binaural beats.ย  It's repetitive sounds/beats and frequencies that you listen to that help you relax.ย  I find that it takes my mind completely off the migraine to the point sometimes where I feel like I'm in a nearly meditative state.ย  I say it doesn't always work because for the most part after it's over the migraine is still there, but heck even the relief while I'm listening is sometimes enough to keep the tears at bay for a while.ย  They have some videos on youtube that are pretty good.ย  I just put "binaural beats migraine" in the search and try out a few until I find one I like.

  48. Just want to say what an inspiration yโ€™all are to me I have panhypopituitism which means I have inactive pituitary gland which effects almost everything in my body nothing works for itself I donโ€™t make stress hormones which can be life threatening Iโ€™ve been really struggling lately with my health and havenโ€™t been myself but wanted yโ€™all to know God is using yโ€™all in a great way so thank yโ€™all and God bless also will be praying for you

  49. God bless you both. The way you take care of each other gives me hope that some good still excist in this world. Love you both๐Ÿค—

  50. I hope you started feeling better! I hate migraines and coughing together does not work! Mary sweetheart im so sorry!!!

  51. I get chronic migraines and watching you in this video girl I feel that pain. The nausea makes it a million times worse and and then when you vomit the pressure hurts so bad! I can't imagine the coughing oh my you are a trooper!

  52. Do you or can you, try Imitrex? I have a birth defect in my brain, which causes severe headaches and that is the Only thing that works. 10-20 minutes and my headache is gone.

  53. I get migraines every month in my eyes and makes me be sick.
    My hand goes numb about an hour after the migraine starts then after my hand going numb half an hour later I start being sick

    I got a migraine at Alton Towers a few days ago

    I went on the smiler and it was so fun
    The smiler is the first loop ride I have ever gone on ๐Ÿ˜‚

  54. I use a mask over my eyes for the light maybe this would help your head aches Mary watch you guys all the time as I have lung problems also

  55. You poor poor young lady. I feel so deeply for you. Iโ€™ve had migraines and I canโ€™t even believe how much your head must hurt with the coughing from the CF. God Bless you for being so strong. Itโ€™s Friday in San Diego, CA. I know your headache is gone, right now. However know that I will have you three in my thoughts and prayers.

  56. I do get painful migraines. I use ice packs to minimize the pain. Cold showers works best for me mixed with slow breathing like i'm meditating, everything will start feeling slightly less painful.
