Jurgen F. from Braunschweig, had to sleep due to his loud snoring in the tent. Summer, Sun, vacation time. 1994, as always, we spent our camping holidays in France, Euronat, Atlantic. After 2 days we had new “are neighbors”, Renate & Jurgen F. from Braunschweig. As it is the case at the camping you helps to build up and in the evening we sat 4 red wine comfortably together with one or more glass. You had to tell too much and enjoy so you goodbye to around 23:00 to the night’s sleep.
Hardly we had located us out, we heard a “growling dog”. I said to my husband: “that had a dog”? He said: “not that I know of” and we slowly fell asleep. At some point during the night 2:00, we heard a still louder growl. Curious as we just are, we sneaked in the caravan to Renate & Jurgen F. and saw how Jurgen had to sleep, snoring in the tent. What is snoring? Well, now we know so the cause of the “growling dog”. In the morning, we wanted 4 together Breakfast, we were already on it.
So cozy with coffee, Crouissaints, rolls, and I asked Renate: “Your husband snores as always so loud”? “It’s cruel,” said she, “but that worst is when it stops even the air”. in 1994, neither we, nor what sleep apnea, well, my husband snored a bit, stopped here and there also the air, but rarely knew it was still bearable. We spent a nice vacation together, exchanged addresses and visited us also here and there. Because the distance that we live in Munich, was very far, the contact was reduced later to call and was then less and less. My husband had 2 years ago in the sleep lab. His daytime sleepiness was getting stronger, his blood pressure was also alamiertend and behold, he came out of the sleep laboratory with a CPAP device.
