Shanny -
Thanks, that's definitely what's going on over here. The sounds are almost identical to my husband's. I am going to show it to him later, to see if we can form a game plan. We've dealt with this for much too long!

@Mary - Yes, that's the one. I must admit to leaning more towards the second one in the final moments but I'm not the only one deciding. I'm happy with either.

Now, on to this snoring thingy... A curious tidbit of info for all of you... I snored quite a bit (apparently ) before my heart attack but once I had the attack and had the two stents put in, my snoring disappeared completely. I think, for me anyways, the snoring was likely caused by a lack of oxygen which was forcing me to breathe deeper and the operation gave me back a healthier blood flow and allowed me to breathe better somehow. Quitting smoking may also have helped but that benefit to my breathing wouldn't have been noticeable right away unlike the operation where the benefit was immediate.

I remember lying on the operating table and the surgeon telling me that once he opened up the first stent, I would feel noticeable better. All I can say is wow! He wasn't kidding! Once I got home a few days later, I kept my wife awake the first few nights because she wasn't used to hearing silence and kept thinking something was wrong lol.

Forgot to test today.

But, CD et al, Sleep Apnea can cause a heart attack, so maybe that had something to do with it. Mary, I now know that both my mother and late husband had sleep apnea untreated. Glad mine was discovered after my small stroke as a possible cause...

You've seen my posts about our Lily who got her type 1 diagnosis at age 9 months. Well, her stepdad has an implanted defibrillator due to damage to his heart from years of untreated apnea. When he & Lily's mom were first married, she realized immediately the seriousness of his apnea and dragged him to the doc. He had actually collapsed on the floor of his office a time or two, before he got the pacemaker. He is on CPAP now, and the defibrillator has knocked him on his can a few times too, but at least he's alive, which is good, because before Lily got so she could switch out her own insets, she insisted that he had the best & most painless technique!

Another beautiful morning with expected top temp of 25C. Temps rising towards end of week with 40C expected on Friday.

HBS, your puppy looks like my Schnoodle only mine is white. Not the one in my signature, she's a Spoodle. Do let us know the breed.

69 (3.8) this cool clear morning, 67 (3.7) at bedtime.

@Tamagno, as CD said, breathe, stressing isn't going to help. I hope you can figure out what is going on very soon.

@CD, congrats on the cabin! You are going to have such good times there!!

My late DH snored like a freight train, though he denied he did. Looking back I strongly suspect he had sleep apnea. He did the whole snore, snore, stop breathing, big snore. He never in a million years would have gone to a dr about it. The oddest thing was at the time we lived in the SF Bay Area, pretty much at or very close to sea level. We had a weekend cabin up in the Sierras at 4400' elevation. When he retired and we moved up there full time his snoring stopped!! I don't know if the elevation did something, or the lack of the extreme stress he was under at work was what did it, but it was amazing to be able to sleep through the night peacefully.

@HBS, the puppy is adorable!!
