The pollen season and COPD

Dear Friends,

Poor Bob has been very sick from all the pollen in the air.  Outside everything is covered with a dusty,  yellow haze.  He has been trying to sleep sitting up for almost a week now, and had to take off work Thursday and Friday.  He is taking five prescription medications, and using my old nebulizer to give himself breathing treatments.   I saved it for emergencies and have only used it twice since we moved.  Glad I did!

It is hell for him, but equally so for me.  Last night at dinner I thought I might have to call 911 when he began coughing, wheezing and gasping for air.  Eventually, he was able to calm down the spasms, but was still unable to sleep laying down.

He is exhausted and his ribs hurt.

If you are the praying type please think of him today.

Thank you.

    Allergies are bad here too, though we aren’t suffering anything close to what Bob has going on! Here’s to some nice spring showers to help keep all of that yellow haze stuff from going airborne!!

    The pollen is everywhere and it covers every surface. How horrible to live in an area so full of the gunk with allergies. I hope y’all get some sleep soon.

So how about that? Go on; say something!
