Hi Jim @thankful, I had the hose problem the first few months and then someone told me about the CPAP hose stands. I got one from Amazon and it has bee great. It keeps the hose above my head and out of the way when I roll over in bed changing sides. Depending on how high your bed is you can also put the stand on the floor but may have to set some books on it to keep it from moving (it's really lightweight small aluminum tubing). If the stand part is under the mattress it kind of holds it in one place. On the floor it could move around easily. It also helps me keep the cat from chewing holes in the hose 🙂.
