I too love being snuggled under the covers, especially in the winter. But I made a terrible mistake eating gaseous food for dinner one night. I thought I could avoid any errant farts by simply remaining under the covers but ended up turning over during my sleep. Somehow it escaped and headed straight towards my machine intake. Wooshed up my hose and desperately yanked my mask off in a quickness. Talk about a rude awakening! :shock:

:D just throw the covers over your head and block out some noise, and light, and be snug... yup!

just don't let the dog fart by your machine.

I've got a HORRIBLE story to go with that. :shock: :lol: (I can laugh NOW)

In 2010, I had back surgery. I was told to bring my cpap to the hospital with me in case I'd be admitted instead of outpatient after the surgery. Well, after the surgery I WAS admitted for a two night stay in the hospital. They placed me in a non private room, which I shared with a much older man that had diabetes and was bad off. Sometime in the night around 2:30am or so, he crapped his bed so bad, the entire room smelled like the worst smelling outhouse you have ever smelled! I woke up with that stink being pumped directly in my lungs by my cpap machine. The nurses finally came in to clean him and change his bed.

The whole room was absolutely RANK for a couple hours. I had no choice but to continue to breath that in until it finally cleared, as I couldn't walk or even get out of bed because of the surgery...

It's like a snorkel for your covers.


Hey! I think you're really on to something here. All I need is a nasal mask with a reading light (think Rudolph) and it could be like reading under the covers with a flashlight all over again!

Better have a machine first :lol:
