Yes, sometimes things do happen in 3's. Thanks for replying to my post re, Early Christmas Gift.
We've got a few things in common, except I'm a little older at 59. I too am asthmatic. Allergic Asthma, they term it in my case. Along with high cholesterol and diabetes. But, from what you wrote, you're getting a good handle on them. I take Singular, Nasonx and Zertec to control the allergies and asthma.
You said your surgery is only a couple of days after mine (Dec. 6), when's the exact date? You can pull my member profile for my email address - since we're both sorta on the same bus to the station, drop me a note with your email address and we can stay in touch, plus, my family tree began in the UK and maybe you can steer me towards some contacts.
Hang on my friend, we'll get through this together and pretty much at the same time.
