Since I recently started using a bi-pap to ease my sleep apnea issues, dreams have become more vivid, and bizarre.
The latest–my spouse and I were driving through the Australian countryside. The road meandered through hills and meadows. A particularly beautiful lake appeared in the valley below.
“I can’t believe it,” I observed, somewhat astounded. “There are emus swimming on that lake. Several more are coming in for a landing.”
How silly of me. I thought upon awaking. Emus continued to be large, flightless birds. What an immense wing span they would have?
I don’t know how it could be related, but night time trips to the bathroom have ceased.
Being connected to a machine that blows air when I exhale and inhale was a big deal at first. Now, shortly after I get everything connected, I zonk out in blissful sleep.
My spouse no longer exits to the spare bedroom because of my loud snoring. Which, in the past, frightened me awake. Well, no longer.
In other health news, my occasional bouts of indigestion, were checked out by a gastroenterologist. Nothing serious, but there were some cell changes, where my esophagus met my stomach. This will have to be watched, with annual checkups. Small price to pay for good health.
