Getting There

Just an update. I first posted in May when I'd just been diagnosed with moderate Emphysema and after 3 months of chest infections, X-Ray and CT scan I was a little scared and gasping like a goldfish - 2 months on I've jacked the cigs, back at work and walking 3 miles a day :) big high spot on Thursday just gone... Took my grandchildren to Arundel Castle and climbed the whole 131 steps up to the Keep. Xx
