(Opinion ~ 01/19/19)
I want to go to a BMU Board meeting and ask for mercy, the Board and ask they reconsider not having anybody with a flag on their account of a medical device that is keeping the dependent alive. I am not just another person on oxygen. I am a high flow level 8 constant oxygen. Unless you see the disk Oxymizer under a persons chin they are just an every day type oxygen user. On Dec. 1, a Saturday in the a.m., my Sikeston BMU electric was turned off so they could work on Wilson Street. I was asleep and when I woke up about to black out I had to go a couple of steps to unhook from my oversized high flow machine to a giant backup oxygen tank. I blacked out as I was folding up going to floor I saw my USPS mailman Albert through the glass door and he could see I was in trouble. He came in and switched my oxygen hose from the electric oversized high flow generator to my giant back-up tank. Thank you and somebody tell the Sikeston Postmaster that Albert saved my life. I wish somebody like American Legion Post 114 or VFW would give Albert a Hero Award. I also want to thank BMU electrical distribution supervisor Bobby Stinnett for helping make his lineman aware of my needing to know when they cut Wilson Street electric off to work on it. I need to know in advance so i can move my oxygen hose to a giant backup tank. BMU Board please have mercy on high flow level 8 constant flow customers and allow our individual high flow BMU accounts be flagged.
