Can you see her smile under that mask?

Yes, thats my Momma --- After calling 911 last week, due to extreme phlegm - oh my goodness, it was so thick -- clear -- and she literally was choking on it. Scared me to no end. Resulting in daily breathing treatments -- I think they are working!

And yes, Momma smiles through it all. I told her, "Mom, I think you're smiling here at the hospital, because you got to spend a couple of hours with some very handsome firemen" -- She actually laughed audibly --- now, that --- MADE MY DAY!

Love to you all --

Kim & Marlene (Momma)

WOW! I love it! John passed a year ago yesterday, and for some reason I thought of you two and wondered how you two were doing. Excellent I see! Keep it up, what a blessing.

We had a suction machine that helped a great deal. And saline. It was my go to since we could use it anytime, no drug reactions ie. albuteral.

Best wishes to your sweet mom.

Hey hey! What is the name of the machine? I want to look into this. Thank you!! ((Hugs))

Drive Heavy Duty Suction Machine. (But there are many online to look at) It had a wand. It looks like an old alternator from a car and very noisy but it worked. And there was another one with a mask like she has. It had a suction to it that could only be used two times. It was a modern machine. I had to be trained on it by a professional. Try to describe the second one to a nurse, they might remember. I'll try as well. Keep up the good work my dear!
