I’ve picked up the new CPAP machine and mask. All the parts of the machine and mask that require daily cleaning have been cleaned and are drying at this time. The machine itself has been programmed and is set up, awaiting use tonight. The tracking software that automatically tracks my compliance (which is a bigger deal than it would normally be because of Medicare regulations) has been installed on my laptop and is ready to start accumulating data. I have alarms set on my phone to remind me to do both daily and weekly cleaning cycles. I couldn’t be more ready – or excited – if I tried.
If things go as expected, I will be sleeping very well this evening and will likely notice an immediate difference tomorrow in the lack of need to nap during the day. More long-term benefits will hopefully follow over time, like lower blood pressure, for instance.
I’m really excited about tonight and I can’t wait to see how things go.
