  • Thanks for sharing! So glad you're ok AND quit smoking AND got your asthma under control! Sorry you had to go through that. I went through a similar situation... near fatal asthma attack. It took that for me to quit smoking and get my asthma under control! Maybe these types of things are meant to happen to prevent worse from happening later? Well, we hope anyway. Glad you're ok and the kids and grand kids get you for longer and in better health! -best of wishes! -jess

  • Thanks jess and well done u for packing smoking in x

  • Thank you! Yay for us! Do you mind if I ask what happened to cause the attack? Was the septis and pneumonia caused from the ventilator?

  • Hi jess I had a bad cough and chest 8 weeks before I ended up in ozzy had 2 lots of antibiotics and they didn't work that's why I ended up with pneumonia and that went into septis am not sure if I had it off the ventilator they didn't tell me I had septis ur pneumonia I only know that because it's on my discharge notes xxx
