Hi everyone!

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!!
