Joined this group last week as I've had asthma (now COPD) most of my life - great group, very supportive. However I have recently been a bit concerned with my husband's breathing and when he went for a checkup I mentioned it to his doc, who arranged for him to have a spirometry test. Must admit I was shocked with the results as COPD was something I had not imagined, hoped it was just something minor. Felt a bit weepy, then both decided to make a jokle of it - anyone want to come to an inhalers party!!! Not too much food I am afraid as he has GOT to lose some weight, that big tummy is not doing his lungs any favours.
