Today was another good day. The new morning walk starting time at 7:00 has helped with the beginning of the day on a good time, not to mention walking at a lower temperature. Enough time to do the morning chores, get dressed, have breakfast, and get ready for my morning walk. Today I had very little sweating this morning. The morning walk was good, so were the Oxygen Saturation Levels. 96% at the start without oxygen, with Oxygen 98%, 90% to 95 during the walk, at the end of walk 92% recovery to 95% within 5 minutes. During the day without Oxygen, it is in the range between 96-98%. We added another 350 feet to our walk, without increasing the walking time.

Today was another excellent day, and it started off as planned. We had an early start getting up at 7:00 with no dizziness or stomach issues.

After 8:00 we started to get ready for us to leave to go to IKEA in Emeryville after 9:00. We took my modified walker with the Oxygen Concentrators which we had to check if it fits into our new car. We left as planned around 9:00 with no problem.
