CPAP Follies
Ok. I'll start.

Last night, when I went upstairs to bed, I somehow pulled out the elbow connector on my CPAP machine. The problem began when I tried to put it back in (hubby was asleep, so he couldn't help). You know how it is when you're tired, and you are not thinking straight? Well, I could not figure it out. Why wasn't it going back in? What was going on? Next the seal popped out. Oh, no! Now, nothing was going right. How was I supposed to fix it? I agonized over the problem for over two hours. In the end, I was exhausted, but I somehow attached the hose, not well, but it was attached.

Tonight I asked my hubby if he could help me fix it and offer a suggestion as to what I did wrong last night. Two minutes later, he had the answer. Evidently, I had tried to put the elbow in the wrong way. What a fool I am! As you can imagine, I'm not good at jigsaw puzzles either.

Any of you have your own stories of mishaps with your CPAP machine?

Don't feel too bad ... Blame Murphy's Law and the designers of the connection. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murphy%27s_law.

Man that link didn't work at all! I guess it just goes to show, if something can go wrong, it will go wrong. Oh-jeez

Remove the period(".") at the very end of the link and it will work.

Statistics prove that people who have more birthdays live longer.
