Hello all. I have not posted for a bit so doing an update. My first diagnosis was about 4 years ago when i noted getting out of breath. A year ago the CT scan reflected the UIP was advancing and destroying more of my lungs and I was given six months survival. At that time the oxygen went to full time at 3 ml. As the months passed the oxygen went to 4ml. The past month I seem to be getting worse as I can only do very limited activity and get out of breath. quickly. My doctor has never discussed any further loss of breathing function and he feels no one one knows how long I may last. Very unpleasant situation and depressing but I do what i can. My wife has taken over most in and outside duties and that is good to see things done but makes me feel sad I cannot do anything to help. A day at a time seems the plan.
