Sleep Study

I got to the office at 8:30pm like I was supposed to. By 10pm they had me all hooked up and left me alone to sleep. They woke me a couple of times to make me change positions so they could get a better monitoring. Finally they woke me up around 4:30am to fill out paperwork and then sent me home. She did verify that I have apnea but she said I would have to talk to my doctor for the severity and treament. I got home around 5am and went directly to the shower to get all the gunk out of my hair. It took 3 shampoos. Gross. I then fell back into bed and then pulled back out of bed at 7:30am to go to work. It was a very tiring experience and I'm glad that it's over. I won't know the actual results till the 18th though when I go in for the follow up appointment. Blech.

On to the next appointment tonight. I'm going to the gastro specialist after work tonight. Joy. (can't you just feel the sarcasm of that statement)

So far so good on the appointments though. Hopefully they'll be done soon.

I had a sleep study last week too. except that besides all the leads, they had to put a mask on me b/c my blood oxygen dropped too low. Seeing my doctor today to find out the results.

Goodness, sweetie, how many doctors are you seeing? I've been to two this week (for Luke), and it certainly has not been fun. {{{hugs}}}
