IT HAS TO BE TONTO

I awakened from my first nap under the bi-pap mask and Ron was talking to our dog Slim. They were both staring at me and Ron was saying to Slim, "She sure does look different doesn't she?"

I guess that makes me the "masked stranger", thus the name selection for my new sleep contraption will be "Tonto". This machine is my new sidekick:) (Are any of you too young to know what I'm talking about?)

So-far-so-good is how the sleeping goes. After two full nights on the machine I have added two hours a night to my normal sleep time and we drove back from a trip to Tulsa yesterday without me falling asleep. My confidence grows that this is going to be an answer to many health concerns.

Now I'll stop talking about this unless Tonto and I take a trip or do something newsworthy. Thanks all for your support and encouragement.

  7. My sleep study dr said "you're waking up several times....per minute to breath." Let just say that 6 straight hours of heavy sleep is nice. I wouldn't try to go to bed without a tonto.
    Or a Marilyn. Sounds a bit weird eh?

  8. Kimosabi, It is good you are finally getting the real sleep you need, even if you need Tonto by your side!
    I do remember the white horse galloping, n the music!
    Thanks for the update!
    Wish I was getting more good hours myself- but the neighbors are loud idiots...

  13. Wow I'm really pleased you are getting that much extra sleep already. I sleep only 4 hours a night and really isn't enough, but I cope ok. Well I have to!
