Woke up this morning at 6:30 AM and repeated the same routine as yesterday. I saw Bighead again at 7:00 AM. This morning he told me that he had counted the incidents of sleep apnea from the night before. Supposedly I stopped breathing a minimum of 20 times and a maximum of 40 times during the dream stage of sleep. Bighead will be making the arrangements for me to get a CPAP machine. I guess it doesn’t hurt to give said machine a try. With our very efficient medical system, it will take at least two months before one becomes available for me. However, Bighead did tell me that I had other more pressing problems. He mentioned that he thought I had an endocrine problem and maybe an adrenal problem and that he would be writing Squirt to tell him. Bighead then told me that he was very concerned that I might be low on potassium. He gave me a requisition to take to a lab as soon as I got back home. I asked him if he would release the sleep clinic records to me if I found my own doctor. His reply was, “Mrs.—-, it is not that easy to find another doctor.” I told him that I had already found two; one out west and one in the US. Both were willingly to see me. He was silent for a moment and then replied, “By all means; just contact my office and your records will be sent to you.” I thanked him and left. It was just before 8:00 AM when I got back to the hotel. I decided to have a quick breakfast. After breakfast I was so tired I decided to crawl under the covers and go to sleep for a while. I slept until noon. At 1:00 PM I checked out of the hotel and went to the airport to wait for my 5:30 PM flight home. I finished reading “Every Breath You Take” about ten minutes before I boarded the flight to go home.
