Thank you for your kind words Gina. Life is not the same, never will be, but i have 2 other children, although grown, they need me. I have a grandson and he is the reason I get up everyday. Thanks too, for your answer regarding lungs . Some days I honestly don't remember I have MAC, or bronchiectasis. I do have an aerobika aslo, but I have an easier time clearing my lungs just by laying on my back. I get so much out that way, then I am finished until the next day. I sit, and worry all day, and my mind went to my lungs. I know, I had surgery immediately when they found Kansasii…I was very sick. But, I don't feel like that at all, and I am happy I don't, but wondered too if I just had a rotten doctor. I had him 14 years, and he has done nothing, but say go home and live your life. So, as I am also allergic to th the one class of drugs that work on MAC, I worry about that too. I am seeing someone for my emotional health. Not doing very well, and it has started taking toll on health. I appreciate your answering. Thank you, Cathln.
