Fun with the CPAP

So last Tuesday, while in the hospital, and after I had only caught a one hour nap after having Gray, the floor midwife came into my room to do a quick after-birth exam. During which, I managed to knock my CPAP to the ground and breaking it.

Okay, semi-breaking it. It became extremely cranky about functioning. But function it did. Or at least well enough to get me through this week when I had a bit of time and energy to deal with it.

After finally getting off my butt Monday morning I called Kaiser and found out that: A. It was still under warranty. B. I could just go to Apria's drop in hours and they would fix it for me.

So Gray and I went for a ride to the north end of San Jose yesterday. Wherein I left 30 minutes after arrival with a brand new CPAP. Which works very nicely. (Okay, we also stopped at my favorite, mulitple resident kitties, used bookstore on the way home too)

Now, I have a different problem. I'm losing weight...and my mask is no longer fitting me correctly. I'm losing seal. And I don't want to keep tightening the straps...its how I gave myself a bunch of headaches last month. So, I need to call Kaiser again, and see about getting fit for a new mask. Yea, I probably could have done that yesterday, but I didn't think about it until about 5AM this morning.
