This may or may not matter, but I, my sister and brother all had asthma and a host of other breathing issues when we all lived where we were born: Oklahoma. My parents, getting tired of constantly dealing with those issues asked the doctor what to do? He said move to Hobbs, New Mexico. We did, and wow. No asthma, no croup. We lived happily ever after. For whatever it is worth. Hobbs is high, like a mile high and dry.
