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 respirato...
