Exhausted

We are all exhausted.  Last night Oliver had a sleep study at Children's Hospital.  His ENT wanted it done before we have his tonsils and adenoids taken out.  Oli is a snorer and he is awake a lot during the night.  All things considered, he did beautifully.  He slept most of the night with 18 leads taped to his head and chest, and a tube in his nose.  I was up throughout the night adjusting the tube and keeping his hands from pulling everything off.  I am hoping they were able to get all of the information they needed and we can schedule the surgery soon.

Waverly had a rough day at therapy this morning.  She had been doing such a beautiful job, but today she cried and protested throughout her session.  I am interested to see how she did at school.

I'm impressed he slept through most of the night! I always thought that if I had to go to a sleep study, I wouldn't be able to sleep because of all the leads and then because it would be a new location and such.

I hope you can all get a good, restful night of sleep tonight.

That sounds like a nightmare experience for you all to do the sleep study - but now I know that you get the results back fast (I'm reading backward).
