Bionic Woman

All hooked up for a sleep study

This week has been a little strange.  E came down with a stomach bug and was knocked out of it for a few days.  Thankfully, he was with it enough to make it to the toilet/the throw-up bowl (we’re classy!) EVERY time.  Parenthood: when emptying a bowl of vomit into the toilet feels like a victory!

On Wednesday I woke up early (5:20am!) and hiked up to Timp cave again with some friends so I’m 2-for-2 on my quasi-goal to hike it once a week.  Who’s up for going next week? 😉

Later that night I checked in to the local hospital for a sleep study.  For years I’ve been sleeping poorly (grinding my teeth, gasping for air, snoring, etc…) and my doctor recommended a study.  Since we’ve already hit our deductible for the year I figured it was finally time to suck it up and get it done.

It was quite an experience.  It took over an hour for the tech to stick a bunch of sensors on me (15 just on my head!) and then I hopped into a hospital bed and went to sleep.  I was so tired from getting up early and hiking that I fell asleep quickly, but I did wake up a few times during the night to toss around because of the wires.  I’ll get the results in a few weeks; I’m crossing my fingers they’ll be helpful.

  1. I have some of those for in the car–super useful! If you ask Mimi "where do you throw up?" she replies "In the toilet or in the blue bag!!!"
