    Hi all, been awhile since i posted last , but i have been watching to see how everybody has been doing. I was doing fine for a little while, when out of the blue i ended up back in the hospital. this time it was a bad one, doc told me i was getting ready to end up in icu. Than they let me go home the next day. Only to end up in the hospital 2 days later and stayed for a week. This asthma is really driving me nuts. the docs don't know what to give me , everytime i get off prednisone i end up getting sick again. Right now i am on spiriva and qvar. also prednisone and albuterol. Mine seems to start with coughing , i wonder if anybody else's starts that way , also now the docs say that i am having anxiety attacks with the attacks. They seem to be getting worse instead of better. Oh i also have had voice box test, nothing there all normal, ct scans and scopes of my chest. Now they think maybe acid reflux. which i do have. I now have been in hospital 4 times in less than 10 months, i know there are those of you out there a lot worse, and i do pray for you, i also thank you all for letting me vent a little. Sometimes it helps to get it off your chest.

    god bless all,
    ed
