    Hello my friends, first of all let me thank you all very much for your kind words for a speedy recovery. I had a very narrow escape I can tell you. I already have Bronchial Pneumonia, but what I didn’t know was I suffered from Asthma as well. For some unknown reason they both decide to play a big part in my life all at once. I collapsed at home unable to take a breath properly, so the wife called an ambulance; I was rushed into hospital where they diagnosed the severe Asthma attack. After many injections plus Steroids (8 per day) and a face mask (Oxygen plus something else) I am now well on the way to a full recovery. You are all a great bunch of people and I heartily thank each and every one of you.
    Thank you, and a Happy new year.

    Shamus

    That's wonderful news, I'm so glad. I saw my mother struggle to breathe many times and understand the horror of it. Happy to hear you are at home and doing well.

    I guess it's never too late in life for a " nasty surprise". Now that you are on the mend, we can ALL breathe a little easier.(pun intended) Rest, and take care. I'll join you and the others in the club car when you're back to full, life kickin' strength.

    Shamus. Glad you are on the mend.
    I know what it is like not being able to breath. My wife has congestive heart failure. It is pumping only 1/3 of the oxygen carring blood and she is constantly panting for more oxygen. If she walks a block she has to stop to get enough oxygen in her system to continue.
