Hi, my 53 year old sister has just been diagnosed with COPD and I'm really worried for her. Our Mum died of lung cancer 15 years ago and our Dad died 5 years ago of emphysema and heart failure. She has not had her blowing into a tube test yet, that's on Friday, but I just wondered if any of you have any advice for her ( and me!!). She quit smoking about 2 years ago, but started up again a few months ago and got a chest infection, which resulted in them finding COPD. She hasn't smoked for a few weeks and has no intention of starting again! She is ok with all this, but I can't stop worrying. Am I going to lose her soon? I know I sound really dramatic, but we are very close and I don't think I could function without her.
