|I had two asthma attacks today. Both mild to moderate but still scary especially since my sister and I were an hour drive away from home. We were having the car fixed when the man who sold us the car offer my sister a trade in deal. She was discussing it when the asthma attack hit. After if had subsided, I had to call off work because I was afraid I would end up in the ER if I went in. |
I am definitely going to have to demand to be taken off cook or find another job.
|Good news and bad news… |
My little brother does NOT have cancer. However, he has severe pneumonia, chronic COPD and severe asthma. He is looking into early retirement. He is 49 years old. As for me, I had an asthma attack. Still completely out of breath. Called off work as a precaution. Do not want to be in the ER again if I can avoid it.
|My brother has severe pneumonia. It's bad but treatable. Just like me, he braves the cold thinking he can take it but we are not getting any younger. |
|My mother was released from the hospital with orders to take two different types of blood thinners to fight the blood clot. Hopefully, this time these blood thinners do not cause her to hemorrhage like the last time she was put on them. |
We were told there was nothing more they could do at the ER and that they had talked to our family doctor at length. Al we can do at this point is pray for the best.
|My mother is back in the hospital. Her left leg swelled badly; they found a major blood clot. They are admitting her. Will keep you posted. |
|I got some rather bad news from my doctor today. He confirmed that I have severe asthma. At first, I was told it was significant asthma but the ineffectiveness of the medication I was first put on proved it to be severe. |
I have been strongly urged by my doctor to avoid irritants such as flour dust; i can no longer be a cook at KFC. I will have to become a cashier or find another occupation. I am searching for another job.
