That's how far my Oxygen cord runs. 

So if I want to go upstairs I can either get my Concentrator upstairs or put on my portable. I have 2 portables - one has 3 hours of O2 and one has 1 1/2 hours. And obviously if I leave the house I need my tanks - probably both just in case. 

This has caused a huge change in my lifestyle. It may be temporary or it may not. I saw my pulmonologist yesterday and he says no crystal balls - no predictions as to if and/or when I may stabilize and come off the O2 or at least be nighttime only. 

I am in the process of applying for disability accommodation at work and medical leave until I can at least stabilize with oxygen.

Overnight I went from moderate COPD to Severe. Now I am making inquiries into what I can do to adjust whether I keep working or not. Having been employed for less than one Year at Comcast makes my options more limited.

I am not anxious!

I have turned my worries over to the Lord and will take it one day at a time!

Any experiences or suggestions would be very much appreciated. 

I am attacking this change like I do with almost everything - research, research, research!
