    Hi folks - Thanks for all your messages. I more or less decided today that i'll get back to my weight training regime,just to see if that might help to ease my breathing by stretching my chest wall. If it doesn't,i'll stop. The very warm weather that we've had over the past week hasn't helped any. It's been like trying to breathe through a warm,wet blanket for all of us !. Thank goodness some cool,fresh air has kicked in at last - long may it continue,
    Best wishes - Ivan

    Thanks for the update Ivan - even though I never met you personally, I very much enjoyed your posts over the years. I truly hope you "beat the odds" and enjoy more time than usual, with peace and comfort. I will pray for you and your wife.
