Well it's "official"
My 30 day "trial" period was over last week and the results were sent to the pulmonologist. I received a call a little bit ago from them acknowledging the stats look good and would I like to continue to use this kind of therapy. Uh..... YEA.... I can't remember the last time I've slept this good. I still have wakeups and toss/turn a bit - but nowhere even close to what I had been.

So they're writing the script to make it a permanent machine - though they're leaving the 5-15 pressure settings, which for me is still fine. My API's are generally under 3 anyway. Can't promise that I won't tweak it (LOL) but I just wanted to make sure I was past that 90 day point. After 10 months the machine is "owned" by me. Smile

I'm loving the sleep, even with that hose. In comparison to how I had been... oh yea.... I'll take it!

Well done Sandy, wearing a mask at night is a small price to pay for a good nights sleep and a long, quality life Smile

Well done Sandy, always good to hear positive posts.
Great news that you have the S9 AutoSet to keep and you have adjusted to using the P10.
Keep up the good work.

Sleep Tight...

That's great Sandy. I can so relate as I am also enjoying my new found sleep! I am about 3 weeks in myself.
