CarolineIf you like coffee, I have something that might help with the nutrition.  I make my coffee and then add l heaping teaspoon of cocoa powder and 1/4 cup of ensure vanilla powder.  By the time I have drank 2 cups I have 9 grams of protein, 23 vitamins and minerals and a heaping helping of dark chocolate.  The dark chocolate is supposed to help with inflammation.

Stephanie Williams, RRTFinished up a Harmonicas for Health class today- this was a terrific group of people and I think they really enjoyed the class. If you don't have a Harmonicas for Health class in your community, you need one!

CarolineI could net get a picture because they would not sit still long enough, but this is a wonderful representation. I watched the mother and father woodpecker at work on this father's day. They were attempting to teach their twins the art of woodpecking. The twins seemed more interested in sitting on the fence, or flying to the next tree. This is how all of the fathers in the world learn patience.


Happy Father's Day

CarolineSome of the roses and Stella De Oro daylilies along the fence behind the round bed.  I have more pictures along the fence, but cannot locate them right now.   I am going for a picture a day.  At that rate, I will probably have to include some weeds. lol

Made Pramana

Made PramanaHmm a little bit weird today. This morning I had a great yoga session. I coughed some thick mucus twice. Then I went home and coughed thick mucus again. The colour of the mucus were not very dark, still the same. I just finished eating lunch now. My body is a little bit warm. Hopefully not an exacerbation. Here is a photo of me doing yoga this morning. Have a good night ๐Ÿ˜‰

Bill Clark - Community ManagerSpent a large part of the weekend boating on the Ohio River in my 1953 Chris Craft. It hasn't been a great year for it so far due to flooding and a lot of debris in the river. The Temps were warm but felt much cooler when converting gas into noise.

clipperSitting here with a 70lb pit bull mix on my lap. I think his head weighs 40 lbs. In MD for a few days visiting family. My heart melted (in a good way) a little while ago. I took Livie, my really great nice to the store to buy green hair dye. Of course I bought it for her and walking back to the car she said, you didn't have to do that, I am just glad you are here we us Ant Debbie.

Made PramanaI went to a mangrove forest this afternoon. I walked a lot and I released a lot of mucus too. Always feel good after releasing mucus. I've been feeling abdominal discomforts. Lots of bloating.

clipperI prefer to focus on what I can do, not on what I cannot do. About two+ years ago I was pretty sure I was dying or something close to it. Thanks to the wisdom of the posts I read here and the help of a good pulmonologist I came to realize that I am not dying any time soon. I do understand the day will come when things will change dramatically for me, that is the reality of this disease. That day is not today and until that day comes I'm going to continue to push my boundaries.  Had a great workout at the wellness center this morning, today was leg/kettlebell day. Got my water, got my music, got my lime green nonin, got my kettlebells and most important of all, I got "the chair" ready. 
FYI everything I do is pulmo approved.

Rob1973

Rob1973I am 43 year old male. I quit smoking a pack a day for 24 years 9n Febuaru 20th. Near 3 months ago. After I quit and only after I quit I developed shortness of breath. Everybody told me that that was normal and that was my lungs healing themselves. Well after two months the shortness of breath never went away and I knew something did not sound right so I went to the doctor and had my pulmonary lung test done and they came back saying that I have mild COPD. I am going to attach my test results to this page and if anybody can look at my numbers and tell me how bad they are or if they're not too bad that would be great. I don't see my actual doctor until next week but she sent me my results in the meantime

  • Karen DeitemeyerHi Rob1973 - welcome to COPD360Social!!  Please be sure to go to the top of this page and click onto "What is COPD" and "Learn More" - you'll find a lot of valid information there.


    I'm not a medical professional, but your test results look very good to me - I'd love to have numbers like that :-)


    I hope one of our RT's or other health care professionals will see your post and comment. 1 month ago
  • KandyI do pfts then see my pulmo after we go over the pfts together and discuss it. I have always asked for a copy after doing them for years.  Also good to have a daughter who was a RT now RN to help with my questions also.

  • clipperI am not a medical professional either but I have become somewhat familiar with those reports. Its all good, your numbers are not bad at all. I do understand you are anxious and I don't mean to trivialize that, I know how frightening this is but no need to lose any sleep. You are lucky getting diagnosed very early. Never ever smoke again, take good care of yourself, exercise regularly.

    You might want to ask about getting the Alpha-1 blood test. It is a genetic form of COPD, just a simple blood test so it can't hurt to get it. 1 month ago
