ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
My dad coughs so bad almost every day. Sometimes so hard that he throws up. Especially if he coughs after dinner. He was fine until he broke a rib 3 years ago. He has to use trelogy elipta every day, for copd. And a nebulizer treatment twice a day. And an albuterol inhaler. *tonight on july20th, about 30 minutes after dinner "we bbqd", he was sitting in his recliner snoozing. And out of no where he was trying to cough, but couldn't. It was because he was choking, I ran to him and was hitting his back. And out of no where he just flops back in his chair and his eyes roll back in his head and his limbs start shaking. I screamed *dad!* like 3 times. While still hitting his back while he's bent over the trash can Until he finally comes to and vomits all his dinner up. He doesn't even remember me screaming for him or hitting his back.
