feeling like i could only take half of a breath and it would hurt they were just hurt. if i tried to take anything more than half of a bra, almost like as if someone was using the lower parts of my lungs when i was trying to breathe in. and it, you know, we let that a point. we were like, okay, something's not right. a doctor from california, he took one look at alex and he said this boys dying. he's dying. they have a giant team of doctors, pulmonologist cardiologists, everybody under the sun. and as they consulted, they said he'd this boy's dying. and we have to do something right now. this is what they call a bi tap. it forces error into your lungs. he still wasn't responding, curious,

and have fun and that's a lot of my customers that come in here. they get excited when they see all the new flavors. when i bring them a new brand are there so that they don't want to smoke too bad. they don't want to. babe tobacco strawberry banana when we kill tried coffee flavored, or monkey auto something like that. but no, that's part of the whole day being experience. you know, it's to get your mind off smoking cigarettes. honestly, i used to smoke cigarettes, sticks of it, but i switched over to maybe just to have a healthier transition or, you know, have a healthier alternative. i feel a lot better since i stop smoking the cigarette as 2 baby i feel a lot better. i. i feel like i'm not short of breath. when i smoke a cigarette, i feel sort of breath instantly. when i smoke vape, i don't feel much different. other than a real relaxation,
a research in new medical pro can and united states knowing the doctors to there's a few points that were really the turning points when they had to be and then walking in and seeing in this years. those were pretty hard having the tube down like throw it was really uncomfortable to me and in my drug state, i was trying to rip it out. i go unconscious for 10 minutes and then come right back up and start fighting because i'm very claustrophobic. he would try to rip the lines out and how he had pulled the animal that it's called the catalyst. how
they pulled that out. it was long or thermos juggler. he'd have been dead. 30 seconds, but it killed him. i cried. i did, i cried. i wept and i'm not ashamed is my son. i love him. so when i 1st got it, i had lost my chance to go to college that year because he's been in the hospital for 3 weeks. you know, i wouldn't be able of walked around campus if ali and cove it stops my plans to go to college. but once i realized that i couldn't walk in that, i had to actually be like the lift it up and like it helped to walk down even maybe 20 feet. i i guess i kind of broke down a little bit because, you know, here i am this i that hiker and i can't even walk 20 feet anymore.
i carry with me for animals. ready when i am hiking and mountain lions, bridle snakes, if you can't get away from it, it's a big day for alex. he and his brother elliott will attend to path. they've walked before. this will be a serious test off to revolve. alex needs to know if he's up to the task you haven't ah,
it's been 30 years since the soviet union collapsed. mom miss got a lot of little chill on to what the nuclear, you know, talk, so shown where you also trust someone call it ukraine was one of the independent states that emerge from the ruins of a super bowl or somebody would you also get on google greens come a little more surely confusing and less new use in west india. better one more law totally different a, you know, watch the past 3 decades mean like the ukraine. eye witnesses were cool, the events. this will be more or less a little what i knew to know if that order. i'm not sure but about 4 months with no idea what else, what other forces were at play? you have to do so to me. show engine mushy in you are in the kid. what it i'm going
to consume little bit when you the shows up in them was a little versions. old. least. take a look at ukraine. 30 years out the gaining independence with unless, unless you mean like it was late, but a will, it could be issue. lush will still holding for ah, i would say the most dangerous thing to worry about why we're going to go hike is the rattlesnakes. there was one time me and my friends we, we were hiking and my friends walking in front of me like jobs is like, oh and i'm like, wait a minute that i see is
a stake about this for my foot. we do, we want you to go to the day has come and alex is determined to follow a particular route. he wants to put himself through an exercise as intense as he was used to before a volley. when we started finding fossils, i just teach that even more because you find you find cool rocks as a kid in your like you, you go up into the mountains and you come back. 20 was there? yeah, i know that the coral around here was from, even before lake bonneville, which was, i think, a 100000 years ago. all of this used to be underneath shallow ocean. oh, what does it say coral?
the dentist looks like coral super. yes, you can find boxes on the road and we still find so many, like we're finding them all the time from shell imprints to croyt stems. and it's my goal to find an ammonite, but i don't know full. and you know, for the food they feel okay. a little low for us, but are everybody things out on friday? saturday night everybody gets together. parties has gone. and yeah, i haven't been here a couple years. but back when i used to come here, they'd let you just, you know, be about years smoking. they weren't allowed to figure it or anything like that for now. yeah. with the new signs and everything, they don't want bathing anywhere. they treat it like cigarette smoke and then you know, even though it's cleaner, it smells a lot better, but yeah, it's crazy. no,
i think as long as they don't keep trying to ban all the flavors, the vapor industry will be good or else they'll just if they do end up banning the flavors or anything like that, like the regulations are just going to get so tied to words it's harder to run a shop and you won't be able to have as much products in the shop. you know, there won't be as much variety, which i feel like that's important for the customers is all the variety a bill in a night with, i mean i thought i'm with you just now when you said your journey, sheila with e repeat wish i will raping you've been with
a couple of the 7 days to get even put on city has picked it on the stuff. can you, bobby, she has to get it. the one thing about that with a real quick are you out of bio keith? i'm assuming you might like warmer than fell on the shuttle. nature wasn't even the price quoted cuz it flew ship globally, isn't uva, well, you gotta get the best of it. and so at the deal with signing up a bunch of them come by name or anything. so you give them permission a minute. almost every weekend the mitchells visit their favorite mexican restaurant, lily lily. okay,
lily got any of them here in the day before the hike and the whole mitchell family gathers around the table. alex's dad, dad is off work today and his sister is already back from school. this one, you want to do that and here's when you were little and then you can tell that when you were little and then you got back and now and sometimes it's hard when you put something fun out of the kids did. you didn't wanna have it put away and, and so we leave it up and we love your pictures. just a funny joke. and it was like funny cute little picture. and she brought it to alex at the hospital to get well. and when he saw a shirt, he laughed because it was cute, and it was funny and it put him in a really hard and is scared her. she thought she hurt.
she was really, really upset. so we really didn't to go into a monitor for her. she didn't know what was happening. i am pretty sure i had our cat winston saying, well wait whereas alex, because while he was gone, you go from my son's going to die. i'm going to have to bury him too. hey, he's getting professor. holy crap, he's gonna die. oh no, he the better it was. i wouldn't want my worst enemy to ever go through that. it was it was horrible. it was heartbreaking. and if anything that happened to alex can save just one person, just save one life. it was worth it a
either. today, blogger still get his girlfriend, anna planning an unusual video. cool. there, meeting someone who by some miracle, survived a valley. alex from provo happens to be a subscriber. i would need and try to learn russian in the past. her last is her. hi. how are you? a that's actually a really good. that's a really good argument. is promoted as a healthier option. and it does look cool. i mean, it's been able to do all the smoke tracks and you know, blow super big clouds of smoke. it's. it's impressive. biggest issue i can see with baby in is i personally think that it's more addicted than cigarettes because they taste good. they smell good. you've always y stops
a boy when i had a baby my last to juice the peach mental and it was a new brand. and which was part of why we thought maybe that could be the cause. there's ingredients within the vapor that can interact with any other for substances that people may be taking, or even i, i highly dubey, maybe even medication. it could lead to some pretty nasty reactions with a cold
shit. i would love to see one day, maybe if you didn't vape anymore, my biggest goal is to inform people. nobody knows the fall. consequences the fall time for recovery from the valley. where there is no long term study where it's such a new disease. me, doctors aren't sure they don't know how long the recovery period will be deleted and i was deeply thrown me. she got it now i was, i mean you sure your duck is which in a, by the when when his and i am sure that maybe just for 5 years. but if you feel you answered quite proud. rashid who are the guy that's probably more than yeah, of course a really great you should in the more so there are some that are group,
but the 1000000 you were to margin who usually we start down about. the cooler one is up here. it is hard to breeze feels good though. the hike is almost over. alex and elliot only have a little way left to go. oh, when you start finding fossils, it really drives new to want to go up there and walk and explore because to find something up in the mountains that millions of years old they no one is seen that everyone has just walked by and it's very special to be the one to realize, wow, that's what this is and to be able to take to help
have given me any sort of chance to be hospitalized, even if it would been for 3 days or the 3 weeks that i was unfortunately hospitalized it. it changes you, it changes a family, it isn't worth the fad of a pain. it isn't worth looking call. it isn't worth risking your life over something. so editing with . ready
with oh, is your media a reflection of reality? in the world transformed what will make you feel safe for isolation or community? are you going the right way or are you being led somewhere? direct? what is true? what is right? in the world corrupted, you need to descend ah, to join us in the depths or remain in the shallows. ah ah,
oh yeah, it has to be rash, to be able to afford enzyme and find the luxury that for sure. despite having the most expensive health care system in the world, we have poor life expectancy. we have higher infant mortality. we have more deaths from treatable causes. so americans are suffering every day from it. it's as if these people don't count as how, how they can choose your customers and dump the sick tone also. right and satisfy their wall street investors. no parents should have to see what i saw. if you're denying payment for someone's care, your make life and death decisions and determine what to get to live and who dies
to me, that's best getting away with murder. with the g 20 summit wraps up in rome with broad endorsement of a global corporate tax being the main achievement. now that everyone sees it, that way we look at y plus and some of the stories that shaped the week, the u. k is ambulance service, warns of an unprecedented crisis ahead. as the armies put on standby to help cope with coven cases and the winter flu season. we hear from a doctor on the from line. at a 5700000 people on waiting lists within a chest, at present pitch. se began to get less dislike, gets better. and supporters of julian sonjee including rock legend, roger waters demand justice following a u. s. extradition appeal hearing, which is yet to deliver its verdict, and i'm so angry and i'm soap and i'm so des cash stick with the minority.
