  1. I and my Wife own and lived in the house my Grandpa built on the homestead until we moved to our current location in 2010 . 5 bedroom 2 story house with 4 bedrooms upstairs and 1 downstairs. My Uncle and 1 hired man died there . My Grandmother passed away in the local nursing home . My Grandmother was 83 years old at the time of her passing and had various medical problems one of which was poor circulation leading to the amputation of 1 leg . After we got married and moved to the homestead we got surprised that my I and my Wife were going to be new parents , our Daughter would have been the first Great Grandchild of my Grandmother, she was so excited and looked forward to her birth . My Grandmother passed away about 3 months before our Daughter was born and never got to see her . Going back about 30 years ( our oldest Daughter is 35 now ) , the Wife was in the kitchen , I was watching the news in the living room and our Daughter who 5 , at that time , was taking a bath in the bathroom . Suddenly we her her scream out , Wife and I went quickly in the bathroom to see what was up only to find our her in tears with an extremely scared look on her face . She did not want us to leave the bathroom without her . When we finally got her settled down she stated , in vivid detail , that there was an old woman sitting in a wheelchair with a dark blue scarf on her head , blue pastel dress and a dark blue sweater and this person had 1 leg . Fast forward some months after this incident I and the Wife and our Daughter were looking at photos in our wedding album , one of those photos was of my Grandmother, exactly as my Daughter descibed her during that evening in the bathroom . She never knew or had seen her Great Grandmother or the photo album before . Coincidence ? I think not !! I do truley believe it was real even I never witnessed anythin woth my own eyes . Our Daughter is 35 now and she still remembers this incident . I had never heard anything in the house as I worked 2 jobs and wasnt home much , the kids and Wife told me they would hear footsteps across the upstairs floor on occasion . Kids bedrooms were upstairs too and they would hear them during the night sometimes . I guess the family kind of got used to the noises after some time . Most likely relatives checking in on things I guess, never felt threatened or anything like that .
  2. By gosh ... by golly I learned me a new term " Dutch Oven " , never too old to learn new things . Seems to me a recipe of generous equal amounts of Budwiesee and pickled eggs would make a fine " Dutch Oven " dish with final product placed by the air intake of the CPAP machine so it could travel up the full face mask .
  3. Yes it did help with concentration . Be patient though it does take some time to start noticing results .
  4. I have been on CPAP for 2 years now . When I had my sleep study I would quit breathing 48 times an hour , my oxygen saturations were at 70 % and they estimated I would only get 20 minutes of restful sleep each night. I sufffered 2 heart attacks , my first one was at the age of 50 and my second one was at 52 before finally being diagnosed with sleep apnea . Sleep apnea is **** on all organs of your body . My Cardiologist figures I likely had it 15 years or so before being diagnosed with it . I adjusted quite well to CPAP, I have been without it a night since they eoke me up at my sleep study and put it on me to finish the night out . Prior to being diagnosed I would wake up just as tired as when I went to bed , wake up with headaches and go thru each day in what I describe as brain fog , hard to concentate . I would doze off mid conversation talking to my Wife , trust me she is not a boring Lady . I would wake up during the night as if I couldnt breathe or someone was choking me and having panic attacks . Since being on CPAP I am able to get a solid 8 hours of restful sleep a night It certainly is a life changer for me . My Wife also has sleep apnea and is on CPAP too , we call each other Mr and Mrs Darth Vader . So glad you are getting things checked out your heart , brain , kidneys and all other organs depend on it . Good Luck to you with your sleep study !!
