A change will do you good.....

OK, so the nasal pillow wasn't working out so well for me. I'd wake up often on my side to the sound of rushing air from one or both dislodged nostrils and my eyelids flapping in the breeze. I broke down and called the respiratory company who provided me with my CPAP machine and nasal pillow and asked to try one of the nose masks that we had sampled on Monday.

I got a spiffy model with that cool blue gel stuff to cushion it - looks like THIS. And, yeah, I do look as much like a dork as the dork in the picture does. But as long as I can get some good sleep, I could look like Steve Urkel for all I care!

I look like I'm all set for chemical warfare with that thing on. And, with Talmadge's love for beans, I should count my lucky stars for this setup. LOL!

2 high-fives:

Who cares?

EVERYBODY looks alike in the dark.

I love you!

(I couldn't have asked for a better word verification: "rzggzz" That's the kind of sleep one gets with apnea.)

That looks like some serious equipment. The color matches my toenails. Who knew one could accessorize with medical equipment?

Wishing you a thousand winks!
