BBB's ills are minus; son, Stugotz, is seriously ill and must leave Arizona to survive

I'm not much in the mood to post on A2K these days. My 55 year old son Stuart is very seriously ill. His lungs are failing him and relying on constant air to be able to breath. He must move out of Arizona as soon as possible. He's trying to determine the best state location to save his life. He has great difficulty sleeping. His walking is limiting.

Butrflynet and I would take care of him but our home in Albuquerque, NM is not safe for his lungs, so he is trying to find a place that will provide a longer life. Butrflynet is having a tough time taking care of me and afraid for her brother.

I've got to stop because I keep crying.

@BumbleBeeBoogie,
Colorado would seem a good choice, both for the good air in the mountains, and close proximity to Albq.

@BumbleBeeBoogie,
Sorry BBB, I wish I could offer you some relevant advice for your son. But I can't. I can only offer you and your family prayers for a safe and quick resolution to your son's serious illness.

@BumbleBeeBoogie,
I like Stugotz hes not a poseur . I wish all you guys some good breaks and get better.
Does the Gotz need dry or humid air? Sounds like humid air would be better for him Too much dust in Abq

@farmerman,
Albuquerque and Farmington have some really crappy air, especially compared to what we expect from the thinly populated Southwest.

I'm saddened to hear this, BBB. Hoping Stugotz finds the right place with the right air.

I can relate to the problem. During my one visit to Colorado, I was gasping. No air.

@BumbleBeeBoogie,
Like the others, I am much saddened by this news and will pray for you and yours, BBB. I'm not so sure about Tico's suggestion re: Colorado. Much of that state is at a high elevation above sea-level; hence the air tends to be thin. I've known people who had no diagnosed lung disorders have difficulty breathing when in Denver. Mile high city, indeed.

Keep us posted, please, BBB. We are all in your corner.

@BumbleBeeBoogie,
I'm so sorry to hear this, BBB.
And I'm hoping that Stuart finds a safer place to live soon.
If only he could live closer to you Butrflynet ... I wish that was possible.
The very best of luck to you, Stuart.

My same idea...
Colorado is beautiful, but the high altitude would be a shot in the foot at this point.

Austin however....

@shewolfnm,
He can't afford the cost of living in Austin.

I'm thinking somewhere in Nevada or Utah will probably be best for him.

@BumbleBeeBoogie,
I wondered why I haven’t seen Stugotz around for a while. I enjoyed checking out his wood making threads.

Sorry you are going through this.

Nevada may not be a bad idea, dry climate might be good for him.

@Stugotz,
Wow, Stugotz. I wish I could give advice better than staying indoors with a couple of hepa airfilters running all day and night (as I do for my mysteriouis copd), and live at a reasonably low altitude. I live in the Maricopa valley.

Mountains or Desert?
Can we, pretty please with sugar on top, help in the search for the right place?

Tell us what is needed, we'll find the place. Maybe.

@Joe Nation,
Low altitude (close to sea level), low dust and pollen, low pollution, temperate climate - no extremes in seasonal temperatures. Good medical facilities. Low to moderate cost of living since he's living on disability income.

Some of the surrounding areas are much more affordable, while still allowing access to the Austin (or even Houston) metro area.

Manor, Lockhart, Elgin, Kyle, Hutto, Liberty Hill....

@Butrflynet,
New Orleans?

Somewhere near Corpus Christi?
