A Comfortable Pillow in Uncomfortable Places

I recently ran into Mike Lindell of MyPillow.com and we discussed the need for family caregivers to have a comfortable pillow as we sleep in uncomfortable places (Hospital chairs, fold-out cots, waiting rooms, etc.). 

Mike sent me a couple of pillow to try out ...and I talked about them on the air.
