Don't feel silly about crying, Tracey. It is frightening struggling to breathe. Try and relax as much as you can. Make sure they let you know what's happening and ask as many questions as you want. I hope you get some rest tonight sweetie. Thinking of you x

Hi Tracy, thanks for update I've been wondering how you're getting on. You're nearer breathing relief tonight than you were last night. Huge exercise in patience for you waiting for the doc and scan results.

Have a list of questions for your doctor when he comes round as you need to know exactly what is wrong and what they can do and all of your options. Is it possible for one of your family or friends to be there so they can hear what he says and also ask questions? I am so glad you are getting somewhere xxx
