A new me! A while back I mentioned I was having some health issues. I was very short of breath and having a hard time of it. That is now fixed. I got my oxygen yesterday after being evaluated Monday. What a big to do it is. I now have a concentrator that is portable and a huge machine that is continuous at night. Also a backup tank in case of emergency. I don't have to have it all day long but I do have to try it at night for awhile and see if I need it. So far I have managed to roll over the tubing at my desk and cut off the air flow and I got all tangled up in the tubing during the night and almost tore my face off. The night machine is so noisy. I had him put it in the bedroom since it was a night thing. Last night I turned it on and oh my, I think the walls were shaking. I had to get up and haul the thing into the hall and close the bedroom door. Of course Molly is terrified of it. She's not crazy about the portable unit and has sniffed it but she hugged the wall in the hallway last night passing it to get back into bed! I haven't ventured out yet. I need to learn to control the tubing first so I don't hurt myself or someone else. I also need to remember not to cook with it on as I have a gas stove. Breathe or cook, what to do. Not a hard choice! Bought a new Crock Pot. I'll keep you updated. One would hope that sucking all this air in might lift and tighten up my face. Be kind to one another.
