Health update

It has been awhile since I have done one these. First, the good news. I am still mobile. I can still eat though it is a challenge. The bad news? My speech is gone and my breathing is going fast. I yawn during the day a lot due to lack of oxygen due to shallow breathing I am not aware of. And I have to have a fan blowing on my face to force air into my lungs while I sleep. Yes, I have a CPAP type device but I can not wear that mask and sleep at the same time. So I came up with the fan and it works. So my plan is to go back to my home in Wisconsin and stay there until I die. If I live longer than the summer, I will be surprised but it would be okay with me to see the winter one more time.
