Breathe Easy

In other medical news, I picked up my new CPAP today. The original CPAP still runs, but is over a decade old and apparently an antique by modern standards. The plastic covers over the buttons have started to come off as the plastic dies of old age.

On the other hand, it's still running when daisy_knotwise's much newer CPAP is periodically refusing to turn on. The other night, I removed the silicone rubber start button and used a hairpin to hit the two contacts inside the switch so that Gretchen could get a good night's sleep.

So there's something to be said for my antique machine -- which is going up on a shelf to wait for the day when another CPAP decides to malfunction.
