Hello Everyone, March 27, 2019 I have been in the hospital more last year in this year in January spend 16 days. Doctors and Nurses are excellent with my care. Nurses are coming in the home. I have a Life Vest I used 3 to 4 times a day. Trilogy Ventilator I used doing the day if necessary and sleep with every night. I am on many medications and inhalers. I used nebulizer, different breathing objects to help me example Airlife, Aerobika etc. I have cane, walker, etc. to help me get around when needed. Some days are worse than others. COPD is something I do not wish no one. Fighting for your breath and thinking this is your last breath is worse than you can imagine. Thank for your prayers and donations for my fundraisers.
