You're more than welcome, WhiteBeard!!! There are a couple of really good and good-hearted RRTs who often frequent that list and answer questions. Some of the members are quite amazing in what they accomplish despite the severity of their breathing problems.

Thanks for your reply White Beard. Once I get my VPAP I think I will feel better. It's always nice to breathe when you sleep! If I have any questions I will definitely give you a shout out.
RAJ, I second the idea of rehab. My mother had heart disease, and started on rehab about a week after being diagnosed. Not only did this help her physically, but through the people she met there she found a community to support her.
