No Post Today

I'm having a very bad day; motivation to do anything beyond fighting for my next breath is seriously lacking.  But I'm still here.

  2. Jesus, Buck. I thought you were seeing your Doc this week. Don't hesitate to call EMS and get to the hospital if it gets too bad!

  4. The best thing they can do maybe is put you in a pressure chamber (Hyperbaric) and let your lungs and heart recover. I wouldn't let them give you any drugs at this stage.

    I used to go to the altitude chamber (Hypo-baric) every three years on flying duty, and I found it fixed my intestines as they blew up to 10 times their normal size and got all the kinks out.

    But that was less pressure, you need more. New Mexico may be too high an altitude for you, and you need to move to the coast.

  28. I came from Jim (Suldog's) blog to let you know that I bow my head and my heart in prayer for you.
    I pray that God will give you clean breaths....comfort and peace beyond all measure....and I pray that you will rest easier.
    Please, know that I will continue to pray for you.
    "Dear Lord. I pray for Buck right now in this moment. I pray that you will help him with his breathing as only You can do. I pray in the name of Jesus, my Lord. Amen."
    Sending you gentle hugs....
