Thank you for posting that, Mary. I found it very informative and easy to understand. Recognizing a problem is so important. It seems to always go back to the basics...an ounce of prevention=a pound of cure. I suppose that should be converted eh? A few days after my DD had problems and we ended up in emergency, a close aquaintence of ours passed away from asthma. He was a wonderful husband and father of two. I like to think he'd be happy that we learned. :thumbsup
