But this IS brain surgery I'm writing about now, for Neurology Now Magazine.
I'm at Starbucks for concentration and no holiday/one husband/two daughters/two doggy distractions, but the place is closing at 10 p.m. I will then head to my home office.
Meanwhile, good news. I've had my CPAP machine for sleep apnea for 2 weeks now and had to bring it back in to the pulmonologist/sleep medicine doctor today. He put a big smiley face on my results. I had/have severe sleep apnea; the test in September showed that I stopped breathing 75+ times per hour. Dan had been worried for a while, and eventually, so was I. He said I gasped for air a lot.
After 14 nights, the doctor says my breathing is stopping about 10 times per hour, not 75+. And that will improve. This has been a learning curve. He also had to review with me the proper use and care and cleaning of very unglamorous items, such as: nasal cushion; headgear; chinstrap; tubing; filter; and water chamber.
You know me....Lilly Pulitzer pink, Tory Burch orange, perfume and accessories and Bergdorf's and blowouts.....I'm sure you can understand why I went kicking and screaming into the CPAP world.
But already, I am much more energized during the day, much less lethargic. I have put makeup on many days--have not been too tired to do so. Have started to walk again.
Anyway, wish me luck with my deadline. Good night and thanks.
