What a find!

I am celebrating the end of the semester with a new toy: a portable nebulizer! I had heard of them but never knew where to get them. Someone posted a link to the preemie list, and I just made a nice little purchase. According to the company, the thing is much faster than my desktop one. We'll see next week... It runs on AA batteries. I'll have to get used to doing this in front of people; but I will work on that. I really need this next semester if I'm going to be out and about more often. And it will certainly be easier to take on trips!

I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off me!

Now that sounds really cool. I hope that it works out really well for you.

Is a nebulizer like an oxygen tank? Just curious and clueless? LOL! Should've asked long time ago, but now am curious, if you don't mind explaining it to me.

nebulizer
An oxygen tank is big because people will get oxygen for a long time. The nebulizer only delivers a few milliliters of medicine. The machine is an air compressor, and it pushes air into this little container where the medicine is and the medicine comes up through either a mask or a mouthpiece and that's how it gets into your lungs. The site says the portable thing is very small and quiet. I will like this a lot! The idea isn't really to deliver air but to break the med into little particles so you can breathe it in. So if there is different technology that does this, I am all for it!

I have wanted one for so long. Which one did you buy? Let me know how you like it. I wonder if it's bad manners to do it in like a lecture hall. That would be cool if it wasn't.
