Thanks to everyone who replied about Fostair, you have made me feel much better. I shall see how it goes and take it from there. See the respiratory nurse in about a month for 6 minutes walk, and she also wants me to do PR course which I was refused before because of my heart, so I have to find out about that. I am trying very hard to deal with all this as my dear husband Peter has been dxd with intermediate prostate cancer and we are off to Cancer hospital today so he can be prepared for radiotherapy. Julian of Norwich, medieval hermit, said ' all will be well, all manner of things will be well'. I pray she was right!
