Three Small Steps

I walked on my heels for three, slow, short, toddling, Frankenstein steps this morning--then I sat down and almost passed out after about thirty seconds. I still cannot lift the box of pennies. At least it is some slight improvement.

My local sleep doctor's office has me confused about the latest results. I could or could not have a problem with my oxygen level dropping during the night. I hope to have this cleared up soon.

My Vanderbilt is setting me up for a study with the Sleep Center at Vanderbilt. The weakness in my diaphragm muscles is effecting my sleep. This study will help determine just exactly what is happening. I currently use a BiPap machine at night.
