    Stephanie Williams, RRT

    Stephanie Williams, RRTHow many of you attended the COPD9 conference in 2015?

    We are gearing up for another great conference this summer :)

    I know many of you live near the Chicago area, and we would love to have you come to the COPD10 conference on July 28th and 29th. Please make plans to come. We would love to have you there and meet you in person.
    The conference is truly worth the effort to come.

    4 years ago, I went to COPD8, and was so excited because it was the first conference I had ever been to (and I've been to A LOT) where the patients were not only invited, but were asked to contribute!! I thought that was such an amazing concept. Little did I know then that I would be working with these fine people now, and helping make positive changes in the lives of people with COPD.

    Feel free to reach out to me if you have any quetions about COPD10.
    Registration will open soon :)

    Made Pramana

    Made PramanaI am currently reading a thread on my Bronchiectasis online forum about oxygen therapy. In the past I asked my pulmonologist whether my oxygen should be checked. However he didn't want to and he also mentioned about the dangerous CO2 retainer. I have been diagnosed with bronchiectasis for three years and I never have a six minute walking test. Sometimes my heart beat go up to 120 bpm with 93 saturation. Tomorrow I will meet a new pulmonologist and I would like to have a consultation about this. I hope that she will take into consideration.

    Made PramanaThis morning I went to an event called "Bali Yoga Festival" with my family. I did not take the yoga class in there because I felt a little bit tired. Yesterday I already had a yoga exercise, so today I just went around. I had a delicious meal and had some fun. Well I will doing yoga in this afternoon. Have a nice day everyone. 😊

    Uncle Jim

    Uncle JimNEW BLOG!

    Over the seemingly hundreds of years that we have been dealing with lung disease as patient, caregiver, teachers, lecturers, inspirational speakers, and on and on, we have collected a number of articles about our journey. They have been published on one or more of the online support groups with which we have had the privilege of dealing. Then, they have joined their fellows in the digital repository where too much valuable information goes to languish.

    One of the major issues with COPD and other lung diseases is the dearth of awareness about the causes, symptoms, and methods of dealing with the day-to-day challenges. It is getting better, thanks in large part to the aforementioned online groups run by such worthies as Mike Hess, Noah Greenspan, Karen Deitemeyer, and the wizards who have created COPD360 at the COPD Foundation site.

    In an effort to further the movement toward the necessary education about chronic diseases, lung and otherwise, we have created a website to make our articles available to anyone who might benefit from them. They are necessarily centered on Mary and I, because they are our story, our journey. Please read them, use them, share them with anyone who might benefit, If any one of them helps any one of you, we will have accomplished our purpose.

    The site may be found at: unclejim-auntmary.net

    Again, please share the site on your pages. The more people we can reach, the better!

    Thanks,

    Uncle Jim & Aunt Mary

      edpe77Great!
      Had a wonderful holiday, spent with my extended family xmas eve {a tradition I've been part of for nearly 70 years}, then with my immediate family today. I have had the honor and privilage of spending over night at my daughters, and watching my grandsons excitement from birth on thru their teenage years now. On the way home last night the 14 year old asked what time things were happening. Informed we needed to open Santa's gifts by 10; he said he would set his alarm for 8:30!
      This is the same kid that just a couple years ago was checking out the tree at 6am, them anxiously waiting for his mother to get up, have her first cup of joe. As my temporary bed was in the family room, I got to see all of this. Times have changed.
