    emoticon , emoticon! Noticing how good fresh fruits and vegetables taste, eating them at meals and for snacks. Notice how we relish each bite and savor it!

Try a little nut butter with your apples for a switch up.

Here's to a healthier lifestyle,

I just wanted to tell everyone I Quit smoking last October. With the patch; and God;s help!! I am on oxygen 24-7 now; with my copd. I have gained some weight; which I dislike greatly!! My legs are very swollen;and full of fluid. My Doctor increased my fluid pill dosage. She explained some of the weight gain is fluid.I
hope this works!! Today I can't get my big shoes on. I would appreciate your support; and prayers. Thank you ! Have a great day everyone. I am so thankful for Spark!! ROSEMARDORF emoticon emoticon

    It was a big decision to quit smoking. As you lose weight and are able to move more you will feel better. Keep up the great work, one step at a time. emoticon

    I am so proud of you that you have made a decision to get healthy again. For you to quit smoking is a HUGE step in that direction! Once you start losing weight and getting healthier, starting to walk more, you will find that the fluid won't be as easily retained and one day you may be able to ditch that oxygen! Will keep you in my prayers for success!!

Why I Haven't been on Spark Lately.

Saturday, December 15, 2012

I was very sick coughing, very swollen in legs and feet. Went to my family Doctor twice. Also seen my pulmongist{lung doctor} too. She thought with taking the predisione I would be okay. Finally Oct 21 I was very sick. My husband called the ambulance.. I was in ICU for 7 days. The lung doctor asked me about going on a respirator; because the BiPaP machine wasn't quite doing the job. I said no; and filled out papers and signed them so it couldn't happen. My chances of getting off the respirator were slim; because of my severe emphymes. Any way it was a blessing that I got that sick. When they took my blood gases out of my artery; They found out I wasn't getting the carbon dioxide out of my body. I was lucky to be alive!! I was in the hospital on 5 floor for 7 days after leaving the ICU. Then I went to manor care for rehab; and to build me back up. I recieved excellent care; and made some new friends that I miss very much!! I was gone for 39 days total. I am having home health care. I have a physical
therapist coming to the house too. I love doing the exerises. It is fun! I bought a recumbent bike. Not an expensive one; it does the job. My physical therapist at manor care reserched it for me. Thought it would be good. It is it got here before I did! LOL. I know the good lord wasn't ready for me yet; because i am writing this. I still have something to do before he takes me home. Thank you for all the prayers!! Keep me in your prayers please.
I have to have a sleep study done Monday; so my insurance will pay for a Bipack machine to sleep with. The hospital loaned me one for manor care; and at home until the insurance approves one.
Their are caring people in this world; or I wouldn't have a Bipack machine to sleep with now. It forces oxygen into my lungs;and helps expel the carbon dioxide from my body. My insurance company has been diffucult!! Keep praying please! Thank you! I am hoping this blog can help
others with copd!! It has been a learning experiene. My chart says "Walking Miracle". Thank you Lord!!
