“My breathing restrictions on my chest were pretty limited, but the doc we have here was excellent, I had steroids which helped me a lot and I started to feel a lot better by day 3 of this steroid course in terms of my feeling.

“It was pain, a weird, my whole bone structure in my body was really aching, it drains you and it was a feeling of lethargy all over me.

And there were other concerns for Owls’ boss because of his asthma… He also explained, “This is something that I have always had to keep in mind all my life. When this disease took hold of me, it was a concern, we know how serious it is. The doctor was excellent in keeping the medication with me. He hadn’t left me since he arrived, every day he was there.
