Should the frequency of exacerbations determine your Treatment Plan? 

Exacerbations in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Patients - Medical News Bulletin 

I get about one exacerbation a Year. But my Pulse Ox often reads 97%. I work full time and don't get winded even climbing stairs or walking miles. It''s all very confusing!

On the one hand I'm on the verge of having that conversation with my Family - you know, when I'm gone....On the other hand I feel like I could go on for decades - I sure want to believe that! And honestly the Doctors don't seem to know any better than I do!

I'm using that old saying, "Plan your Life as if you'll live to be a hundred and live your Life as if today is the last day of your Life because only God knows..."
