      Changes   03/08/2016

      HI everybody, I'm sure by now you have all figured out we have some changes on the forums. These were due to the security of the forums; we try very hard to keep spam off the forums but it occasionally get through and causes problems. The new updates should help with this kind of problem.  I'm sure you've browsed and figured out that the posts are listed in order of the very first post to the latest. For Loss of An Adult Child, this means there are more than 2,000 pages to go through. The easiest way I've found is to click on the double arrows by the page numbers, get to the last page (it usually goes right to it for me) and then scroll down the page. You should be able to read all the posts for the day.  We are trying to see if there is a way to reverse the order. I'll let you know what we find out, and I will post more suggestions and tips as we go forward.  I want to apologize for any inconveniences and stress this update has caused. We value each and every member, and we will work to make this transition as seamless as possible.  Sincerely, ModKonnie

Has anyone lost a loved one to COPD?

2 posts in this topic

I lost my mother to COPD on 04/22/12, when she was removed from the ventilator. I still have so many questions and wonder if she had not been intubated, would she have possibly gotten better? I would love to hear from anyone who has had experience with this type of death. Thank you!

Mamasdarlin, Hi, and Im sorry for your loss. Yes. I lost my mother in law to COPD in November 2011. She did pretty well for the first year, but each time she came back from the hospital, she was worse. She was on an oxygen machine around the clock and had gotten to the point where she would get short of breath just by taking a few steps. What questions can I try to help you with?
