Dec 23, 2019 · Meeting Members in MAC & Bronchiectasis

@nannette Hi Nannette! My husband and I are visiting the Bluffton area on the possibility of buying a winter home there (and moving from wintering in Tucson, which seems to be making me sick). We plan to drive to Beaufort on Sat or Sun Feb 1 or 2 to take in the sites. Where is your shop and when is it open? I’d love to meet you. (Please send me a private message if you don't want to post the location and hours here.) I’ve already been in touch with @windwalker Terri and she’ll probably accompany us on some of our house search. The big thing for me is to show my husband (who loves AZ weather and the Catalina mountain view from our home) that SC is beautiful also. I look forward to my visit! Lori

@baz10 Thanks for responding. I'm investigating whether coughing up blood may actually be a good thing in MAC. In my reading of MAC articles, I found one called "Retrospective study of the predictors of mortality and radiographic deterioration in 782 patients with nodular/brochiectatic MAC lung disease" by Gochi et al. ( https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26246077 ) Very few people die of MAC-related issues. The women with bloody sputum fared the best. I'm trying to find out why.

@alleycatkate Kate, thanks for your reply. I'm going to try to get my GP to give me a script. Regarding the Astragalus, how much do you take? Is it full herb or extract?
