…..this is a quickie postette to say…..
Why oh why had I put it off for so long? I have been poo-pooing everybody’s advice that I need to sleep with Oxygen and I have been adamant that I didn’t. Yet after my 1st two experimental trial nights, I am like a whole new rejuvenated person.
Old without O2 Sus: My body has to fight so hard to oxygenate, my lungs get so tight, I wake time and time again, wander round the house, take a breathing treatment, get a drink, go back to sleep, repeat the process, and get up in the morning feeling like I hadn’t been to bed or hadn’t slept, dark rings around my eyes, and this thick muzzy sinusy headache. OK so I have a PND, but hey!
New with O2 Sus: Boing, zing, zippity do-dah! That was me leaping out of bed. Well, as much as I can with a pair of temperamental bellows and a rather dodgy back!
That’s a heart rate of 87 and O2 SATS of 97% Wowee! (P.S. The Bio sculpture nail gel is totally fine and has been checked and approved by my Docs, and I am never made to remove it in hospital, LOL!)
So I phoned J at work (on a Night shift) to tell him the news. Then I loaded up my morning nebs (5mg Ventolin and 500mcg Atrovent), and….
Ditto the Wowee! a mind blowing PF of 325 and even better, GREEN! I have green zoned it once since returning from Palm Springs in April-and that was…, yep…, YESTERDAY!
That’s a PF increase from 242 to 325 this morning and a SATS increase from 92-97% overnight.
…..Yep, I reckon it’s a no brainer-but I’m still waiting til Tuesday for definite!….
