nellie came to say hello and so i needed neb boost, doing okay now. but whilst being examined by dr he checked my oxygen sats. i breathlessly tried to say in broken sentences, that i always maintain my sats. only the odd occasion i have actually de-sat below 90% - just as a warning!
he agreed, and said he knew that the ''majority of asthmatics maintain their sats, until quite late when their REALLY unwell, too late, thats whats frightening'' he said, especially in brittle asthmatics like you!! then i also informed him that 2 wks ago i kept telling my friend i was okay when he wanted ring 999 for me, then i eventually give in, when i got to hospital i had blue lips, sats 86% but i felt okay!
he then asked me try do my PF = 250 (best 550) his reaction, ''the way your talking and breathing, and the way your chest sounds, i expected worse, so well done.'' his reaction alone made me feel better!! lol
