    For almost three

    Would you please take a look at my sentences and correct my mistakes?

    For almost three decades, Anna had been riding the same blue bicycle to her job.
    Since childhood, John had been having problems with his lungs.
    For days, the engineers are trying to repair the broken telephone lines.
