Mon, Jun 15 7:46am · COVID-19 and MAC: What are you doing differently to protect yourself? in MAC & Bronchiectasis

@lorifilipek Hi and thanks for the informative article…It was very comprehensive. I was charmed by his closing quote from Christopher Robin… "You're braver than you believe and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."….."Be safe, be kind." It took me 30 pages to realize this is the same author that I posted on FB two days ago with Straight Talk on Covid-19. It, too, was an excellent article and thankfully it seems he did not drink as much coffee before he wrote it. haha. Stay safe!! Kate For your reading enjoyment:

@windwalker Check your link…. On pandemic, not saline.

Hi Margie @margiebanks! Thanks for your reply. And it was just the perfect length…lol. No, it was interesting to find that you get your saline done in 2 minutes…Wow! That is really fast. I thought my new Pari mouthpiece was a lot faster than the old mouthpiece but I think it takes maybe 8 minutes instead of 12 or 13 with the old one. Wonder if that is because I do not have a Pari compressor.?? Sorry, you missed your races. Hope we will get back to something that looks like normal soon. Best to you, Kate

@auntnanny I am unsure of the answer as I do not do albuterol but if it is just a matter of producing an aerosol from a liquid I would think most would be similar. I am wondering why you suggest that the Pari is not good for saline as that is what I am using it for.?? I just did get my Pari LC Plus in the mail. I like it better than the Drive mouthpiece. It seems to take less time to nebulize my full 4mls with the Pari and it seems a finer mist with less mist escaping or being wasted. I may be imagining that but I am happier with the Pari. Initially, I was unsure if the sizes of the different kits were the same but they all seem to be interchangable. Sorry I cannot be of more help.

Thu, Apr 30 3:02pm · New Diagnosis of MAC/MAI & I'm scared in MAC & Bronchiectasis

@windwalker @sueinmn …Hello. I actually had 2 separate injections into my thumb back before this virus hit. My thumb was frozen in place and the 2nd injection (about a month after the first) unlocked it. It still is not great but there is a little flexibility. I had scheduled surgery but then I did not want to go through with it after the virus was starting. I am hoping it may resolve on it's own…not sure. My 3 adjacent fingers to that thumb were all triggering and with the shots and some home exercising, they are almost back to normal. Always something. The shots hopefully will bring some relief. Good luck. Kate
