May have to Revise my Yellow Brook Road 5K?

Tuesday, March 08, 2011

I'm keeping this short and brief- the Pulmonary Specialist has Diagnosed me with Emphysema, more testing is involved throughout the Month. Whether its due to 40 yr's of Smoking, Lupus, or a different health issue may be found in the further testing? Either way, extensive hard Cardio may not be advisable. I was too shocked and upset to ask. I'll be seeing him again this week and will ask.

I'm asking all my Sparkies to keep me in Prayers, please.

    Oh honey...I'm sorry to hear about the diagnosis. My stepfather has Emphysema. Was diagnosed years and years after he quit smoking. Hardly seems fair. Just remember if we're walked TO it, we're going to be walked THROUGH it. Keep your friends close! You'll be in my prayers today!
