Grin I made it 4:31 hrs last night and it WASN'T miserable!
Just had to share that I finally had a "good night" with my CPAP and nasal mask. I kept the thing on for 4 and a half of my 7 hours of sleep and only ended up taking it off due to rainout and leaks around 3:30am. The short hose the connects the Swift Nano for Her to the Climate Heated Hose is unheated itself. I start the night tucking it under the covers with me but it doesn't stay there. I guess I'll be sewing a hose cozy. Smile

I was ridiculously happy that ResMed's MyAir dashboard gave me a 75/100 this morning. I was like "Yeah, I got a C in breathing!! WooHoo!!"

This board is a life saver. I probably would have quit totally 2 weeks ago except for the positive suggestions, pressure-less (haha) encouragement and stories of self-advocacy I received here. Thank you all.

Congratulations on your milestone.
