My Son Ed pass away from sleep apnea

by Ed Householder
(Pittsburgh Pa USA)

March 22 2012 my son pass away from sleep apnea. He was 32 6'2" 167 pounds But he snored very bad and had 6 of the warning signs.

He came home for Christmas and I have two machines I asked him to take one home with him but he didn't.

He lived alone with his dog so when I couldn't get him on the phone I finally called one of his friends they found him and the next thing I knew I was getting a call form the Charleston County Medical Examiner.

He had laid there for five days.

Please get checked!!! Don't make your Parents or children have to go to a cemetery to be near you.
