    Dr. Grandner my name is Jimmie McCall jr.
    Dr. I have been diagnosed with the most severe foam sleep apnea since the fall of 2017 and I have been using the CPAP machine nightly for the last year and 10 months. Around the the first of November, 2019 the CPAP machine altogether stop running. I have been going back and forth with the supply companies trying to get them to fix or replace the CPAP machine.
    Alone with sleep apnea I also have sleep deprivation and since the CPAP machine stop running I am sleeping less than the normal 4.5 to 5 hours I get nightly and it is getting harder for me to go to sleep. On top of all of that, I am almost afraid to go to sleep because of my sleep apnea.

    My questions to you Dr. Grandner is: Is my body suffering any damages? Am I in any danger of dying in my sleep from sleep apnea?

    Dr Grander I would appreciate it if you respond to my situation.

    I thank you for your time and thoughts on this matter.
