Marla T., TX
We moved here to Fort Worth, TX eight years ago; it was hard due to the humidity. Last month my 16-year-oldson Cody and 14-year-old Duncan developed walking pneumonia. Now I am beginning to show signs of having pneumonia as are my two youngest sons Dawson and Sean, so I will be setting another doctor appointment for us on Monday.
I noticed it was Code Orange this morning, which means the air is not fit to breathe at 8:30 in the morning. This really concerns me and has made me think of moving as soon as my lease is up, but to where? I was looking at your air quality grades, there is so much to consider. Is it too late? Has damage already been done to my sons' lungs and heart?
