Dancing With The Reaper

Yesterday at 6:30 am I got up to get a drink of water my throat felt dried out, I started to cough then choking then throwing up.
This went on for awhile then I could not breathe due to the fact my lungs started to fill up with fluid to appoint my right lung was not inflating properly because of plugs aka mucus filling in the air sacs!
I started to get light headed and fought for every breath I took, in the mean time Debbie got my nebulizer ready and got me on oxygen and the fight was on !
My legs and arms got tingly , which means I'm in full blown respiratory distress and am now fighting for every breath to stay alive due to low blood gases.
Within a half hour breathing became less difficult but still life threatening!
I did a whole days worth of meds in 3 hours to get back to normal breathing!
I danced with the reaper again and he is good and Johnny G. Has a few more Tangos on his card!
God Bless all of you and thank you for your concern!

And Remember........
Laissez les bon temps rouler!
