Hello Sue and hope you feel better soon. I am doing fairly well with my asthma being pregnant and excited about that. I only hope I can lose some weight while being pregnant like I did with the other two. I really want to stay limited with it so maybe it won't affect me any. I am doing really well do far but the cravings are already setting in. YIKES!

Glad to hear things are going well for you Cherly. I'm still struggling with asthma. The weather is supposed to change to possible rain this weekend and I am hoping it will clean the air. Plan ahead for a wonderful weekend and hide all those holiday treats. Put them in the garage if necessary.

The weather is still frightful here. Beautiful but windy and hot and full of pollen. Making me miserable but hanging on as best I can. Come on November!

Yes. Keep stress low (as possible--how often do we have control over that~?) and care for yourself so that you're caring for that new life. Many hugs.

It's also been tough for me here lately Anna. I have been dealing with stress from school with teachers and keeping my kids going to help them make good grades. I finally got report cards Thursday and the have all A's so I was very proud of them both. Now I will have to take extra care of myself with the stress and keep me and the baby ok. I am always here if you need anything so please sparkmail me anytime. Good luck.

Wow! Many congratulations on the pregnancy. I know that it's an emotional roller coaster with miscarriages in the past. I am looking for the best for you and your family.

I have a 14 year old that "shouldn't have" made it.

I don't understand the miracles or the pain, but I am rejoicing with you in the new life.


much love,
anna

Thank you Rebecca and yes I am excited but still afraid. I miscarried one about a year ago after 5 weeks and that's where I am at now. I have started some meds to help me carry if but not fool proof. I too pray that all goes well and I get to experience this new joy in our lives.

Continuing prayers for your dear mom, Cherly. May she have complete healing in her arm and have a pain free future. Recovery from surgery is so difficult. None of us wants to see a loved one in pain and helpless. She is a brave women to go through this again knowing what she would be facing and hoping for a better outcome this time. The first few days are the most difficult but she must be so glad to have the surgery behind her. You are so good to her and such a blessing in her life. That must warm her heart. Love and comforting hugs coming your way, today.

Thanks Sue. It was awful to see her in that much pain again. She came up from surgery already wincing and crying and said the pain was much worse than before. She was supposed to have her surgery at 1:00 but they did not start it till 2:20 and it took an hour for surgery then an hour for recovery so we did not see her till after 4:30. The doctor said she could spend the night so we thought it was best for her to do so. They finally got her a room about 6:00 and got her moved. She is supposed to get out today so my sister and I are heading up there early to make sure Dad gets everything she needs pain wise and get all the right prescriptions to take home with her. Please continue to pray for her Sue that she will mend quick.

I'm safe and sound. I am taking a low dose prednisone just to prevent wheezing during this challenging weather pattern and dirty air. It does mess with my sleep but I am off work tomorrow and can rest, PTL. Cherly, don't let the stress of your mom's surgery lead you to temptation. You need to be strong for her and take care of yourself for your own sake and for your kids. Prayers for you, my friend.

There are 4 fires in my county and 2 larger ones in the next county. The air quality goes down pretty fast. The windy weather makes it 95 during the day and in the low 40's at night. Everything is in the extremes in October. Here's hoping for the best for everyone. Keep doing what you know works for you and trust in God for the rest.

Mom's therapist told her to take Melatonin which I believe if over the counter to help her with sleeping at night. She said it is helping both her and dad get better sleep. You both might be able to try this and help in your sleeping. I also use the Sleep Aid generic of Unisom to help me with my sleeping when it gets out of whack. The benadryl messes me up so I just go for the regular sleep aid. Are any of the fires from California near where you live Sue? That really must be tough and it would be affecting my asthma too. When they burn leaves or trash around I call smell it and it really messes with me. My problem with prednisone is the after affects it has. After I was taken off of it I felt like crud for a good month or better. Maybe you all will start getting better soon.

High winds and smokey air from fires in Southern California today. October is always a scary month here and it has nothing to do with the holiday at the end. I'm holding my own with my asthma but really keeping close to home and limiting my activities to avoid symptoms. I'm on a low dose of Prednisone. I call it the awful drug I can't live without. The worst side effect for me is the insomnia. I am tired all the time but dare not nap or I can't sleep at all at night. Benadryl does help you to sleep but it dries out your mucous membranes leading to mucus plugs. You might want to talk to your doctor about alternate sleep medication choices on your next visit. If you continue to take it you might want see if your doctor advises you to take some generic Mucinex which is now over the counter to keep things flowing freely. May and October are always difficult months for me so I just keep my focus on Thanksgiving. This too will pass. Hang in there.

I have been on Predisone for 3 weeks and I am still wheezing.. I love and hate predisone... my eyes feel tired.. I hope it is not in relation to this treatment... I thought I read somewhere that is bad for your eyes. They just feel heavy and I strain them.. I Haven't slept in days.. finally started taking some benadryl just to fall asleep....

My peak flows are around 250-300... I am too young to deal with this adult asthma!!

Any comments/suggestions? emoticon

Good Monday Morning Everybody, hope you had a great
weekend.
My Asthma has been bothering me too. Along with my
Proventil HFA and my Symbicort I take OTC Mucinex DM
2 times aday or I get the generic pills which I take 4 aday (they are lower doses,but the same ingredients). They help get the mucous out of your lungs. I am also on a C-PAP machine with oxygen at night, I have COPD. Anyway this is how I get through it.
Takecare everyone and God Bless You All...Rebecca

Hi, My name is Carol & being in australia its getting very hot here already & I live in Nth Queensland where its even hotter & gets upto 100% humidity throughout the day & sugarcane cutting season & I have been having HEAPS of trouble since July when cane cutting starts, & mixed with that its spring here & flowers are coming out everywhere. I landed in hospital 3 times in the last 3 days with complications. I have been on 50mg prednisolone tablets 2 times a day for the last week with my symbicort every 4 hrs & my ventolin every 4 hrs & inbetween when needed & still having trouble. I've had allergy test & it only showed that I'm allergic to dairy so I dont have anything like that to creat my probelms but Dr's looking into doing more allergy test to see what he can find, I have my Dr stumped trying to figure out what else to do. I had a lung function test yesterday, Not good & my peekflow is only registering 250 & after nebulier & oxygen machine it got upto 350-400, I have to do another lung fuction test at the end of the week so hopfully I can improve by then.
Ok I've dribbled long enough & got my frustration off my chest now.
Try to have a great day everybody
Thanks, Carol
