Sleep Apnea Results

Recommended Posts

Hi Sheryl,

 

Thanks for the update. You know I have never had to do the sleep study business yet. I very rarely sleep as it is due to pain, etc. So I'm sure I would be awake the entire night just being in a strange place and being hooked up to all of the apparatus.

 

I hope your hubby sleeps in another room, then you can buy a new mattress paid for his bed made of nails. See how he sleeps then. lol (did I say that???) :)


Warm and gentle hugs,

Ahh! A bed of nails. Which friend is going to bail me out and who is sitting beside me. I think I might definately need it. Hey, the last time Ron and I had this discussion he was afraid of me cutting his hair. He is keeping a low profile. He puts in his 2 cents and then meanders away. I saunter getting ready for the next query. I told him a long time ago. It was his job to earn the living and I would make his life worth living. We are both retired. Or at least he is. I still have a house to maintain and meals to prepare. A womens work is never done. I can also make his living quite misserable. (Grin) Enough of him. I will do what I need to do if I have to go back to work. Humm! Now, hairstyling (Snip/slash) or demolishing. Or Pharmacy as in drugs. What a way to go. Officer I was on a Sclero drunk and still am if you watch me walk that line. I don't know what happened to that man. You say he was my husband. OK! All for now. Thanks for all you concern. I am a surviver. 38 years worth in July. I guess we have learned to ignore things we can't control. Sheryl


Strength and Warmth,

Sheryl

Hi Sheryl,

 

my hubby also gets the tapping sound when condensation gets into the tube, he doesn't actually wake up from it, but I do!, and then I in turn wake him up and he either fixes it by holding the tube up so the condensation comes out, or just rips his mask off for the night if he is too dopey to deal with it.

 

It doesn't happen very often, but I just wanted you to know that it can happen occassionally.

 

Big hugs,

Irene

Irene, I also was too tired to figure out what was happening. I surmised it might be that there could be condensation in the tubing. But, the tapping wasn't consistant. Of course I was awake and moving about and breathing erraticly. I am glad it happened there the first time so that I now know what to do.

Oh, anyone going for a sleep study make sure to ask about the humidity appliance that attaches to the machine. Insurance companies no longer automatically offer that part. Saves them a bunch of money. I was talking to the technician and saying I would really like the moisture because of asthma and breathing problems. She said if she doesn't word things properly on the orders she sends to be read I won't get the humidifier. So we talked about it and she let me use the moisture the entire night. Sooooooooo nice. My insurance company may try to get out of it. We shall see. I am off to visit my gastroenterologist this morning for my annual / bi-annual appointment. He will be happy. No major problems going on at the moment. It's all good. I hope. Sheryl


Strength and Warmth,

Sheryl
