Trip to Texas

I am on oxygen 24 and 7. I needed a portable oxygen machine that airlines approve...so I rented one just for the overnight trip from NS Canada to TX to pick up my granddaughter and bring her to Canada to spend Christmas with her Canadian family. But it was a nightmare thanks to this up-to-date portable oxygen machine...I ran out of oxygen a few times on the trip didn't know exactly how it worked was not informed properly.

It was disappointing

I was so happy to have my granddaughter with me but the anxiety of a machine supposedly great for travel was disappointing, to say the least...I lost 10 pounds on the trip felt like I was going to die and took me months to heal mentally and physically from using a portable oxygen machine that was not adequate for anyone with end-stage COPD, but I will never forget that trip!
