Hi one and all, Went for my lung function test today and it turned out my FEV 1 was'nt as bad as I expected..In 2006 it was 50%, in 2008 42% and today 37% averaging a loss of 5% each year. I really thought I would be in the 20s knowing the deteriation over the last 18 months or so. Even so 37% is not so good when it should apparently be 75 - 80%. My sats were 96% thats good so all in all I think I might live to fight another day. By the way my dr. will prescribe virtually anything for me including Spiriva which I know is expensive, along with serevent, ventolin, and atrovent. I have 28 items on my prescription so there is not much I have'nt tried. Sometimes something I take seems to have an effect and other times nothing eases the breathing and the total lack of energy that goes with it. Still today is a good day and I've managed to do a few odd jobs. By the way does anyone know how Tessa is or if she is still in hospital think of her often. Glad you got your highrate mobility - it really does help and Van sorry about your Alpha thingy (never heard of it before)but its yet another thing to deal with. My name is Carole - why I'm stupid cats and dogs I don;t know ( thought you had to have a code name or something. Anyway good luck and health to all. :D
