WE TRIED GOING TO A DOCTOR
David and I went to see a specialist.
The specialist examined David, and he told us that his loud snoring could point to something more serious.
David might develop something called “sleep apnea”, which was really dangerous.
Sleep apnea can be a mild problem or potentially become a serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. It's caused when the throat and tongue muscles become relaxed during sleep which can cause the airway to become blocked.
The doctor told us that there was even a chance he could stop breathing, get a heart attack, or even worse.
“What can I do, doctor?” my husband asked.
Basically, the doctor said if my husband continues down this road he's currently on, his snoring problem can become a very serious health issue.
His options will include tranquilizers to see if that worked, or he could do an operation. There was also a breathing device called a CPAP which was a nose mask that pumped oxygen that he would have to wear all night. It looked uncomfortable and unpleasant.
We didn’t like the sound of any of this!
