Harold K., PA

I’ve had asthma since I was only 12 years old. Later in life, I developed COPD. Approximately one year ago, I was 73 years old and started coughing up a very thick yellow-colored mucus. No one knows why, but I guess there’s something in the new room I moved into a year ago. An X-ray report from last June said that my lungs were clear. 

I will request that the carpet and the air handling equipment be thoroughly cleaned.

 I’m working with a lung specialist to get my lungs healthy again. That’s going to take some time. In December of 2022, I developed aspiration and bacterial pneumonia. And in July of 2023, I developed sepsis pneumonia.

My underlying medical condition is multiple sclerosis, which, after nearly 30 years of being stable, progressed significantly to the point where it’s no longer safe for me to have anything by mouth. I required a PEG feeding tube, which is how I get my nutrients and medications. I’m not even allowed to sip water. 

Take care of your lungs. No one can do it for you.
