Happy New Year ! I have a special shout to my oldest brother. It has been 12 long years now in the nursing homes. I wish I could have you here with us. I always pray for you. God Bless my United States Army and Marine, Agent Orange Veteran. I have you back. XOXO
Well almost January. When there was a lot of edema I could see that breathing was a struggle. The pulmonary had her using a inhaler and nebulizer. Nebulizer was only four times a day. Inhaler one time a day.
Well, we managed to figure out a way. We talked to the doctor (pulmonary) and she could use the concentrator with the tubing for o2 just to go in her nose. (cannula).They come in different sizes. Tubing comes in different lengths too.
Oh my gosh what a relief. Whenever she was short of breath . Hey ! turn on the concentrator. That worked out great. We could still go places without taking anything with us except a rescue inhaler.
We also learned to get more oxygen in : BREATHE IN THE NOSE AND OUT THE MOUTH.
A little reminder, smell the roses and blow out the candles!!!!! SLOWLY! It works.
