Hi Martha: This Augmentin (875 mg 2 x per day) has worked great. This is
the first time since January that my breathing is somewhat normal. There is
a price to pay in the rest room but I am not complaining because I DO like
breathing. The things we become happy with are amazing. I have a sign on
my desk that says "If you don't enjoy what you have, how could you be
happier with more". I remember going through a period in my life when I
thought things represented happiness......
Speaking of New York get togethers - Last year I met a woman with SCLC from
Staten Island (Corrinne and her husband), at a NY gettogether, I was
wondering if anyone has heard from her at all. I tried calling her twice
several months ago and she was not feeling good and didn't take my call. I
have since lost her #, if anyone still has it I would like to try again.
When the weather gets warmer, I would be available to meet God willing.
Take care Martha, your friend June A.
