I can imagine that with all the excitement of this move you were anxious to just hurry up and pack up. I would have done the same thing and tried to do it all as fast as possible to get the heck out of that hole they've had you living in. I am sorry to hear that your body had other things in mind. I can't wait to hear all about the new place. When is the big move?

Is there some sort of medical assistance program for your country that you could apply to for that sleep machine?

Be careful and don't overdo it while moving. I know that packing up and moving is difficult, physically and emotionally. I hope that the new place is much, much better for your family.
My hubby once tried to use one of those CPAP machines. I told him that it was like sleeping with Darth Vader. He kept sleeping with his mouth wide open, even around the mouthpiece, so it just wouldn't work for him. I still put up with the thunderous snoring.
As Sandy asked, shouldn't there be some sort of medical assistance program to help Stephen to get that machine?

I wish we were nearby Kim...we would LOVE to help you and your family move outta there to your new better home! If you can take your time moving though, I would. The easier, the better...although I am not too sure there is ever an easy way to move. Moving is stressful for the healthy!

Make time to baby yourself...put heat on the hip and back. I like to soak a thick cloth in very warm water and apply it to my hip...that warm water penetrates into the muscles a lot better than a heating pad. Soaking my fingers in warm water feels really great too.

I'm wondering along with everyone else...there ought to be something that will help pay for Stephen's machine.

Keeping you and your family in my prayers. ((((Hugs))))
