I did the home sleep study last night and as far as I'm concerned it was a total disaster. I haven't had that bad and I sleep in a long time.
Interestingly , the problems I had had absolutely nothing to do with the sleep study itself or with the equipment I was wearing on my head. I just flat out had a bad night, tossing and turning and tossing and turning. It was ridiculous!
We took the equipment back to the Study Center today but have not received any word as to the results. Will probably get those within the next two days.
I have a suspicious feeling that date of the day were able to record was probably totally insufficient to justify the insurance company paying for a CPAP. Oh well, we tried.
I'm still off oxygen and have been all day today and apparently I'm doing fine without it. I just get short of breath if I exert myself too much.
I tried taking out the garbage today, both barrels from the backyard to the street and that almost killed me. I'm going to have to be a little bit more conservative on what I take on until this thing is finally over with.
We have the pulmonologist visit tomorrow afternoon so as I mentioned before, Karen and I will be both able to get most of our questions answered, I hope.
As far as the bladder condition goes, I'm still batting a thousand. As I mentioned in a previous post, there has been no bleeding since I got out of the hospital the last time.
I'm still pretty gun shy about saying I'm really on the mend. Obviously I hope I am but the way things have been going it's kind of a knock on wood situation.
My weight seems to have stabilized at 260 which is a good thing. This is the lowest I've been in a hell of a long time. Just losing the weight itself is going to be a big plus for my general health and the diabetes.
On the light side, my birthday is coming up on March 7th. It will probably be the only day in the entire year that I'll be able to indulge myself with sweets!
I will be 63 years young I'm looking forward to hopefully making 64. I guess at this age you have to be grateful for every year you get.
I'm thinking of staying up really late tonight see if I can make myself sleepy. I don't want a replay of last night! I do have a problem with mild insomnia which I sometimes think has something to do with the medications I take say nothing of my level of activity
A lot of times it simply is just not being able to stop my mind racing. This is one of the classic reasons I posting this blog because it helps me visualize all the junk that's going on in my mind and kind of get a grip on it if that makes any sense.
The wife and I are still sitting out on the patio at 8:50 at night and the neighborhood sounds like construction zone. I have absolutely no clue what's going on. You combine that with the motorcycle traffic and the local airport traffic and gets pretty weird as far as noise levels go. Sometimes I think that's why I am partially deaf!
That's about enough drivel for tonight.
