Some photos of my recent trip to England. Had a great time and my lungs held out brilliantly. Traveled all over the central and western part of the country from Portsmouth to Liverpool. While in London I had the pleasure of meeting long time blogger Susannah and her husband Julian. How cool is that? Can’t wait to go back to see the half of this wonderful country.

Asthma in 2014
Most frequently asked question
The answer is..YES!
While it's a little unusual to see a person with a perfect O2 sat of a 100% during a severe exacerbation, its pretty typical to see sats in the 94-97% range. The reason for this, is that asthma is a disease of the airways , not the alveoli where gas exchange takes place. Most asthmatics dont desaturate during the early stages of an attack,unless theres a secondary problem such as pneumonia. You have to be extremely ill with asthma if your sats are low.
