My husband was told 6 years ago he had emphysema and COPD. Since January he has been hospitalized 2 times, on steroids bursts 5 other times and was put n O2 24/7 at 3 liters in rest and 5 walking. In the past month he has gone down fast. He is no longer able to bend over due to lack of air, He can't sleep in bed because when he does he quits breathing almost as soon as his head hits the pillow. He has even less energy . We were at the dr's yesterday andhe told him "at this point of your life you need to think about a living will. YOu are very fragile" He has quit smoking as of June 17 2001. That day he had a heart attack, stroke. respirtory failure and broke his ankle. He also has diabetes, RSD arthritis, sleep apnea, high blood pressure and high cholesteral. We were told he has poartially collapsed lungs on both sides
