I'm so happy you have your hummingbirds. You're right, they are so beautiful. What's your secret to attracting them?
I'm sorry you are having such a tough time with your asthma right now. I certainly know where you are coming from and I understand when you say that the steroids are the only thing to stop it. You just have no choice. I enjoy breathing, don't you?
I will mention to you that I asked my allergist to switch my inhaler to Xopenex, the same medication that I use in my nebulizer. I had read about it somewhere. I had never had any luck with inhalers before. The Xopenex inhaler is working great for me. I have been out with friends and started having coughing and wheezing spells and I'm sure they are thinking I am going to have to use my portable nebulizer, but I pull out that Xopenex inhaler and it works almost instantly. It even stops the cough.
I've told my friends that it's the best thing since sliced bread. You know as a severe asthma patient to be able to stop that cough and wheezing right away, it keeps that inflammation from getting started, at least part of the time. I still never leave home without having my nebulizer in the car and the inhaler in my purse.
Sorry to be so lengthy, but I wanted you to know how well it works.
Good luck tomorrow and get well soon. I will be thinking about you.
