Monday and Tuesday were rough days for me this week. I woke up feeling like I couldn't breathe on Monday, and it just got worse as the day went on. I ended up with a touch of a stomach virus, I think, and spent most of yesterday in bed. Thankfully, I am feeling better today. I have no idea how people who get sick all the time handle it. I know I am a baby when it comes to being sick, and I would hate to feel like that all the time.
I am hoping the kids and Junior don't get whatever it was that I had. It would be especially bad if Junior got sick, because when he is sick, he finds it hard to sleep using his bi-pap. He needs a new one, too, I think. I need to check out some medical equipment manufacturers and see if I can find a new one for a reasonable price. The one he has now cost about $2,000 about ten years ago, so I hate to think about how expensive new ones are now. Back then we had insurance, and they paid for the machine. We will have to pay full price for a replacement.
I don't know how other people pay for san diego medical equipment without the assistance of medical insurance. I am sure that even used ekg machines cost a small fortune. With a little luck, Junior may just need an adjustment to the settings on his machine, and not a new one. That will cost a good bit of money, too, but not as much as replacing it.
