Hello everyone,my wife has copd .this year has been absolutely terrible for her. In may she caught a chest infection while in Bulgaria. She spent 11 days in i/c where they said it was a miracle she pulled through. Since then she has had another infection, resulting in 11days in our hospital in scunthorpe, where she was described as critical. She now has had for the past 4 days stomach ache & passing water from her bowels. So as you can appreciate we will be glad when this year has gone. On a lighter note may i wish you all a peaceful new year.
