Intermatic DT17 Heavy Duty Digital Timer Product Recall

Link: https://www.intermaticstore.com/dt17recall.pgm

Amazon.com sent me an email notice informing me of a voluntary product recall of the Intermatic DT17 that I had purchased from them a while back.

It indicated that any date code ending in 'A', 'B', or 'C' along with 40Z to 52Z were affected. A quick check shows mine is 13B.

Visiting the recall site, it appears you submit a claim and they send you a postage paid mailing carton to collect the recalled timer and then send you a new one. So, at least its free. But, it means that I'm without my timer in the mean time.

I've been using this timer to control my Hot Water Pot....to cut down on the amount of unnecessary on time of this appliance. Even then, sometimes its probably on more than it needs to be. But, having the Hot Water Pot is kind of a convenience thing.... :>>

I guess I can go back to leaving it on all the time for the gap.

CPAP Night Four

Well, last night was different...I turned down the humidifier to prevent rain-out, it didn't feel as comfortable as it was the night before. I got a note that my cover has shipped, only its going to the wrong address. It hate it when companies ask for shipping address, but then ignore it and send items to your billing address. Now I have to wait for it to arrive, and then wait for a Saturday when I can make it down to the UPS Store. They did apparently upgrade the shipment to go by priority mail, which just makes it more annoying.

During the night, I had a dream....don't recall the specifics, except that I could tell I was having one....so I woke up, and found that I had rolled over and knocked my mask part way off...and had opened my mouth.

What air was getting up my nose, was coming out of my mouth...

So, I got up and made a trip to the bathroom and the kitchen....and then back to sleep.

Then, I woke up a second time...it was close to before my alarm... So, I decided to just stay up....rather than make a trip to the bathroom, put mask back on and try to get some shuteye during the 45 minutes that was left before the alarm.

Taking the mask off, there was that strange smell and my nose was feeling sore. Wonder if I'm just smelling the part that was being covered by the mask....

Wonder if I'll look strange if I bought Lansinoh (I normally never go to that section of the grocery store, but I was there yesterday when I was looking for baby shampoo). But, people swear by it for mask soreness...and it doesn't contain any additives (so no worries about stuff in it reacting with the mask silicon seals.)

Meanwhile, I'm not sure which way I'll go. Keep humidifier low or risk drowning....

Woohoo, UPS was here....

First night with Heated Humidifier

Last night was my first night with the heated humidifier....it was kind of mixed night.

It went on so well, that I wasn't sure it was even working. Other than that I would've had difficulty breathing with the CPAP off, it certainly didn't feel like it was on the same way before the humidifier. Guess the lack of cold dry against the inside of my nose confused me.

So, I spent the first part of the night feeling for the air flow, and then wondering if I was feeling the right air flow. Didn't need ramp (at this stage). However, there was more noise from things last night...I guess its just the added sound of the air going through the humidifier now. Though it might also be that I put the machine in a different spot, due to its added size.

But, this time I was up twice during the night.....rolling over and nearly drowning is kind of a problem. I had ordered a HoseBuddy, to help with getting tangled up in the hose during the night. Maybe I shouldn't have gotten rid of the headboard for my bed a couple of months ago.... I think I debated getting a hose cover, trying to pad my order to be over $99....which I do have one coming. But, it probably won't arrive until after this weekend, so it would mean I have to wait until the 10th to get it from the UPS Store.

Going back to sleep after the near drowning was harder....did feel the need to use ramp once.

Then when I woke up there was a 'new' smell inside my nose. Though later when I was cleaning things, I noticed a lingering smell....guess its a 'feature' of the dish soap I'm using. Guess I'll add baby shampoo or something to my (mental) shopping list. Hopefully I'll remember while grocery shopping hungry....

The fit was a little off, because I was using the medium nasal pillow...it fit okay when I tried it at the Home Medical place, but I guess laying down and moving about in bed...it doesn't fit as well. Guess the large nasal pillow is what I'll stick with using for now.

I recalled a dream from last night....the annoying kind. I dreamed that I had woken up because my nose had water in it, and that I had pulled off the mask and turned off the CPAP and....then I woke up to find that I needed to actually do what I had just dreamed.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
