Re: Today


True, I was hoping to get away from having more pills introduced to my diet! And this one I may have to drop. I hate how it makes me [sign in to see URL] and antsy at the same time. It does a number on me. Unfortunately, there's nothing else that works on this disorder. I may just have to see what I can come up with.

Firle, yes, that's exactly the problem that this pill can cause. It doesn't do everyone this way, so there is a chance that, if I stay on it, I won't have to worry about it.

I'm really not sure what else I can try. There is another pill, but my insurance won't pay for it because it would come out of Canada and it's over $500 a month for a month's supply. It would be a pain to get someone in Canada to get the medication for me, then ship it to me, etc, etc, etc. I can't even remember what it was called. (bad case of [sign in to see URL])

As for the rest of [sign in to see URL] found out Friday that I may be in for a new sleep machine. I am on a regular CPAP right now, but I may be getting what is called an A-PAP. It is fully digital and can adjust the strength of the air flow all through the night according to what your body needs. If I am home Wednesday, the gentleman who handles my breathing equipment will come over and we'll see what we need to do. My CPAP can't do what my doc wants done. I'm not complaining!! I can use the same mask I have now with the new machine. AND, the new one is quieter, I've heard. My BiL just got one of these new A-PAPs 2 weeks ago and he loves it. He said it's much quieter, and that's saying a lot cause my CPAP is pretty quiet.

[sign in to see URL] is surgery day, so there will not be any posts from me probably for a day or 2. I am hoping that Fenyx will update everyone when she's able.
I got some good news yesterday. My best friend's daughter will be in the operating room with me. She is an O.R. tech at this hospital, and she's requested my case, so that made me feel really good knowing there will be someone I know and trust in the room with me.
I have to be at the hospital at 5:50 in the morning, surgery should start around 7:30. I have no clue how long this surgery is supposed to last, but I figure no more than an hour and a half, if that.
My DH will be making the calls after surgery, and my Dad will be letting Fenyx know by e-mail, so it may be a bit before she posts anything.
My DH has taken this week off from work, so I will have him around to help me out and do the things I can't. That will help a lot. And, if need be, he can go get my SiL and she can do a few things around the house for me. [sign in to see URL]'s pretty adept at doing things without any help.

[sign in to see URL] need to go finish getting some things packed, so, I'll see y'all as soon as I am able to sit here, or in the recliner with the computer!!!
Everyone take it [sign in to see URL], you and the Frog please be safe on your journey back home. [sign in to see URL] hope your license comes this week!! Texas, I hope when I get back that you have hired a new farm person. [sign in to see URL] on [sign in to see URL] hope that's what has been keeping you from posting as much. [sign in to see URL] those goaties a big hug for [sign in to see URL] those guys!! [sign in to see URL] good luck on your Etsy [sign in to see URL] you'll sell a LOT in the few days I'm away from the computer emoticon. Cat, I hope things are settling down some around you!! For those I didn't name personally..... [sign in to see URL] take care, and please be safe with this swine flu mess going around. I hope all are safe, healthy and in good spirits when I get back!!
