Sleep Study


Last night we got it done.  It was like checking into a motel (a very expensive motel run by Procrustes)  The bed was not iron (verrry comfortable, actually) and there were no alterations of body parts.  She was hooked up to about 16 electronic leads (Sort of like an ekg except that half the wires were attached to face and head.  I got to sleep with her (a special accomodation).  Now it  is over and she will discuss the results with her lung doctor a week from Thursday.  It was a lot of trouble for her so i hope the results will be worth the test.

Daniel had a sleep study done 3 years ago when his drinking got to the point of making his apnea so much worse. He also had night terrors and would wake up screaming like he had PTSD all night, so they had quite a time with him at the sleep study. He had to go on that C-Pap machine, but it never helped him too much, mostly due to complications from his drinking and all that whiskey putting 100 extra pounds on him, sigh. I hope they can help your wife; way back when my daughter Marissa was a baby she had seizures and they had no idea why so she had a sleep study as well; I thought I'd never get all that goop out of her hair that they attach the electrodes with, ugh. Daniel's hair was full of it, too.

I hope so much that the data provided will shed some light on how to help Dianne. I can just imagine how difficult it was for her to undergo that and I'm happy that they could allow you to stay with her as well.
