Thank you for al the prayers and positive thoughts. God hears them all.
I have been diagnosed covid negative and severe exacerbation of COPD. With steroids and antibiotics I am improving little by little. I slept almost nonstop yesterday with Nancy's suggestion to ask for a do not disturb sign. Plus my body was just heavily dosed on steroids which left me 48 hours without a wink so I finally got some rest.
If you are still smoking - please stop! If you have quit - please protect your quit as if your Life depends on it - because it does - not just quantity but quality.
I read a blog today about a person in their 20s who has bad lungs already. It's a good heads up that yes, you can get COPD in your 20s - maybe not in this case but just as young adults thought they couldn't suffer from Covid - they can! They can also suffer from COPD. If you have breathing problems - no matter what your age - ask for a Spirometry Test.It will indicate in minutes a lot about your lung health and next steps like a full PFT breathing test.
Well, I gotta pack up - should be home by 1pm. Thanks again, for all your prayers!
LLAP! Your decision to quit smoking contributes to a long healthy life!
