I wish I could record the sound of my mom right now. My mom is 60. She coughs like she is dying. She smokes Salem Full Flavor, 2 packs a day! At night she takes robitussion to sleep...even though it doesn't help. I'm on the top floor, she is in the basement and I can hear her wheezing and coughing all night. It keeps me up some nights and I just wish I didn't have to hear it. I know this must scare her, too! She refuses to go to the Dr. She rather just die then find out if she has cancer or emphazema...This has been going on for about 3 years now...Lately it seems worse and tonight I could see some fear in her eyes. She said. "I think I have cancer"...but still refuses to go to the Dr. Her father died of lung cancer at her age (as have a few of my uncles)....As some of you know I had to have a CT scan lately for my cough, nodules & bleeding in my lungs..My CT scan came back cancer free and better than it looked 8 months ago.I need to keep my quit to keep my lungs healthy. Each night I have been smoke free, I have listened to my mom and said to myself "I'm not going to sound like that! I'm not going to struggle like that. I'm not going to make my kids hear me sound like that."....Just a reminder not to smoke...it doesn't just hurt you, it hurt those who love you!
