My husband and I retired last year looking forward to a more relaxing life together. Last November my husband was admitted into hospital with chronic pneumonia. He was a smoker and he now has emphysema. I have to do everything for him because he gets out of breath so quickly. He can't walk very far at all. He has been referred back to the respiratory clinic at QA hospital, we just hope that, given time, things will get a bit better for him.
