Blood oxygen level of 81% today...is that bad?
just kidding, I know it's bad. When I left the dr.'s office, I had a sore arm from a steroid shot, the shakes and a racing pulse from the breathing treatment, and a blood ox of 97%...I still don't feel great, but I feel better.

I also have a sinus infection on top of my asthma 'event', awesome.

4. My dear fleabert!
I am so sorry you're not feeling well.....

I cannot imagine having lung problems...long ago I had pneumonia, and it sucked big time......

But I did get over it.....

Asthma is another story altogether.....chronic, too....

Please take care of your beautiful self........

9. Not good.
We start to get nervous when people get too much under 90 (Hell, with my patients, much under 93 or 94).

Do you use Singulair or some other kind of steriodal inhaler? Or was it just a virus that sent you over the edge?
