On May 6, 2009, I was taken to the hospitol for chest pains and having trouble breathing. I was additted within the hour and given all kinds of test. My lungs had given out. I could not produce enough oxygen to supply my blood. I was put on oxygen that was really being forced in hard. This supplied the oxygen it took to substained my blood. Ireally dont know how they figure all that. All I know is I have to have forced oxygen on at all times now to get enough in my blood. It is truely a pure headache carrying around these tubes and tanks everywhere I go. I have gotten better and it dont take as much, but I stil have to have it. I’m coming along better than they thought but amstill looking at visiting a surgeon. Well I hope thios explains why I havent been on lately, but I will try and keep on posting. All of you have been producing some of the most beatifullest peices of work that I have seen. Keep up the fabuless work and keep o0n posting. OH, SMOKING. I haven’t had a cigarette since May 6, 2009 and I still crave those nasty thing. I wish they had something that would take this craving away. I am on chantix and the craving is still there strong. I have smoked for over 40 years. and could kick myself for even starting. As soon as they tell me the finding on what they found in my lungs I’ll let you all know.
Keeps on going Jim
