      xStaceyxLast night I wrestled three times, first since I struggled last show about a month ago.

      I managed to win the trophy by beating one girl and two guys.

      I think the weight I lost helped me to get through. I went at a slower pace, did pursed lip breathing when I could and took oxygen levels as soon as I finished each match.

      So far so good although it definitely made me tired.

      xStaceyxFinally got my little oxygen thing (not good with technical names) $115 here in New Zealand.
      I used it for exercise today, found I stayed within 95-99 except once when doing an ab exercise that causes pressure on the chest.

      Day 11 in a row at the gym, weight is not shifting anywhere fast enough for what I'm doing or my liking but got to keep persevering.

      RubiaThe pictures below where taken last week with RT, RN's MD's that are involved in the care of those patients with COPD diagnoses. The reason of wearing orange was to make aware our patients and visitors of what "COPD" means and to let them know where to look for consults & treatments.

      xStaceyxFirst time I've ever worked out 7 days on a row.

      A friend of mine also has given me an oil to use with boiling water that I've found helps with my chest.

      This is the first week I've noticed other symptoms of COPD, it's a bit scary, but I need to handle it.

      xStaceyxI started trying to lose weight just before I got diagnosed as I found I was getting breathless in my sport like I did when I smoked. After being diagnosed I upped all parts of staying healthy & am now 7.5 kilos down, many more I plan to lose :)
      Next week is my first match since being diagnosed and a true test on whether I can continue what I love to do. Professional wrestling is really the most intense form of cardio I've ever done. I'm training hard to be able to keep doing it. I also coach it & have around 25 trainees. It is my long term career plan, I've always been a fighter, now more than ever I'm going to dig into that fight.

      Because my school colors (Princeton University) are ORANGE and black.
