Thank you!!!!! My seventh grade English teacher was about 108 when I had him and I’ve been semi-colon challenged ever since!I'm confident that Deer Park knows of what he speaks; <<(just for you, Lucy) and I'm also of your opinion that the brand name product was not a good go-to, especially just before game time. I speak from experience here. Those things knock me out for hours. As a young teen, and pre-teen our now 35-year-old son literally carried his inhaler onto the football practice field; all that sweat and grass! Serious and breathtaking (pun intended) stuff!
I think glv98, you, sir, and others in this group, have personal or even professional experience(s) with allergies, asthma, and related conditions. It sure ain't fun. My most discomforting events were of the West Coast variety. Those of you who have flown into the bay area, Orange County, etc., have doubtless had a bird's eye view of that smokey/smoggy, soupy haze that practically blankets the most-populated parts of that state for extended time periods. Add in the blinding San Joquin Valley Tule Fog, and things can really head south in a hurry, so, I have usually fared better here, than there. Go figure.
Anyhow, there's just so much to consider, and I think CoachJumper hinted at a possible "other" concern. I'm not sure of which "virus" he was speaking, but I hope, as I'm sure he does, that Rickea's is a "normal" case of local allergies/asthma, which is bad enough, but considering the other potential symptoms - micro-clotting or similar constrictions ...well, I trust that our lovely All-American, Rickea, is in good hands, and that the Athletic/Medical departments are giving this top priority.
Madtown, it's nice to read of your children's successful endeavors. Didn't one of them actually get to play in Europe? Did you get to go watch, or were the risks/restrictions too much a hurdle? Here's to continued good blessings!
And, to better health to you VolBall09.
Cheers, to ALL!
