    kind to come to my side with such powerful and meaningful words of wisdom and understanding. You speak with expertise. I can easily see that.

    Although I am unaware of you age today, to be diagnosed with COPD at 40 tells me that apparently you have learned from experience that although changes are gradual, they are permanent, something I surely have difficulties adapting too.

    But like I mentioned a moment ago up thread, its a steep hill I will have to climb, I trust myself and my family to help me reach the top and get to feeling much better.

    As for the sphygmanometers, my daughter is a registered nurse I believe I have mentioned that in one or some of my diaries. We found a digital one that needed new batteries and I found that I need training to use it. My daughter will come to our house soon to teach me how to use it..I turn it on and the number flash and go crazy on me. I cannot tell whats what.

    My only real concern as I write this is my blood pressure. I do not remember where my blood pressure number was supposed to be as it showed while at the hospital. I think it was a bit over 100 but I don`t recall exactly.

    Thank you so much for your extensive advise.
