Oh my gosh...just now reading about this....

I hope the pills will help and that you made an appointment already to go to the doctor as soon as you get home. Hope you're feeling better!

You still need to be checked out when you get home and quit smoking (hands on hips shaking finger at you). Mucinex helps break up the congestion in your chest.

Wow, Ronnie, I'm sure that was scary for both you and Sue. Glad you got checked out quickly and hope the meds help til you get home to see your doctor. $490 is a small price to pay to have peace of mind while you're away from home. Feel better soon and hugs to you and Sue.

Wow, sorry you had another episode. Hopefully this is the right diagnosis and the meds get you ready and ok for travel.

I assume you have placed a call to your primary care or cardiologist if you have one to get a quick appointment lined up for you when you get home.

Take care.

Yikes! That's scary when you are away from home. Glad you are feeling better.

I will add to the communal voice, get checked ASAP when you get home!

an appointment with a pulmonologist will confirm if the doctor in Aruba was right about the COPD diagnosis or, if you have another lung infection going on. I know how hard it is to quit
