I've just had six days in hospital with aspiration pneumonia, and I'm annoyed with myself for allowing it to happen. After 8 years I should know better. I went to sleep propped up on the big nest of pillows I always sleep on, but this time I dared to sleep on my side, and woke up 4 hours later coughing and choking and 2 days later I was in hospital.
I want to know why sleeping on my side makes such a difference? Does anyone know?
I've been looking at the wedge pillow, wondering if that would help, but my nest of carefully arranged pillows keep my head and chest much higher than that, and have worked for years. Maybe the wedge under my nest of pillows?
I hope everyone is as well as they can be. The snow doesn't help, but it looks lovely.
