HBOT - Day 9

Everyday before I go in the chamber I have my blood pressure, heart rate and oxygen saturation levels taken. I don't sit still long enough for them to get the readings before  I am treated, I wriggle too much and sometimes my toes are too cold to get a saturation reading. The reading will work pretty well when I am relaxed and have warm feet when I am done. The HBOT works well to get my circulation flowing, transporting all that wonderful oxygen through my system and that is what makes my toes warm for the reading. I don't sit under blankets or anything :)

Today when I was getting in all I wanted was a cuddle and a drink of milk. It was such a hassel to put my seal and hood on! When we were all settled and pressurised and my oxygen was flowing through, I started to tap around the inside of the bubble with the palm of my right hand. I did this alot today and I didn't cry one bit while I was in there, so the hour went really quickly. In no time it was time to hop out. I didn't have much to say about this session. I was pretty quiet.

Daddy and Corey came today, so I will have lots of new pictures to show you all, and tomorrow I will start to make a video of a treatment for you all to see!

Getting my blood pressure reading done.... I didn't give it to them though!

 This is the little deivice that takes my heart rate and oxygen saturation levels.
 If you are an adult they put it on your finger.
