Marylin was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis about 5 years ago. Pulmonary fibrosis is a condition where scarring of tissue effects the lungs. Generally people who are diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis have shortness of breath and find it difficult to breath. In Marylin's case she was able to find treatment that has been pretty effective until earlier this year. In January after getting a severe cold, the pulmonary fibrosis accelerated.
In May this year, Hospice was brought in to help with the progression of Marylin's illness. Marylin remains at home with the help of Bob, Hospice and family and friends.
