I am going for a emergency visit to my doctors tomorrow very early.  I have bronchitis, and my asthma is completely out of control.  One attach after another.  I'll more than likely be back on steroids.  It's the only thing that helps me.  I am so tired of being sick it really sucks.
Good happy news.  Our hummingbirds are back on the front porch at the hummingbird feeder they are so beautiful.  I wait all year for them I have been on the lookout for them the last couple of weeks because you never quite sure when they are going to show up.  To me they are a sysmbol of hope, not sure why but they are. 
Wish me luck tomorrow I hate to go to the doctors but I hate wheezing all the time worse.

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.
