Good afternoon everyone. I thought that having severe copd was the most devastating thing in my life, but on Thursday evening I received a call that my mother had stopped breathing. There was nothing I could say, and more there was nothing I could do. I couldn't run out in to my car and rush to the hospital or even run to my neighbors. All I could do was cry and pray, while trying to call someone to pick me up and take me there. I had just seen my mother that afternoon, maybe 3 hours before this, we live 2 doors away from each other, she was fine, what happen! I couldn't figure it out. She is still in the hospital on the breathing machine but she is responding more. So today I am going up to see her for the first time. My family don't think its good for my health to see her, but I need to see her. I pray to God to go with me so that he can hold me if I cant hold myself and to give me the strength I need to face what I'm about to see. Please keep my mom and me in your prayers.
