Last night I had the un-pleasurable opportunity to experience my first and hopefully my last sleep study. It was to test to see if I had sleep apnea. In lame men’s terms it’s when you stop breathing at night. It’s not to be taken lightly. It’s correlated with weight. Something I have been trying to shed, but with no success. I’ll get to that later. So I was released from work at 6:00 p.m and grabbed some KFC (those to go cups are awesome). I had enough time to down some food before being at the hospital promptly at 7:15pm.
Once I filled out a few pieces of paper I was showed back to a room with a camera and television. The bed reminded me of one of those you might find in a super cheap hotel. But I would make do. I watched television and relaxed until the nurse came in to attach all of these thin wires to my neck, face, and head. Oh there was also one on either leg. Then two belts were wrapped around me on over my chest and the other my stomach. Then I was free to sleep.
At first I thought it would be hard to fall asleep, but nope, I was out in ten minutes. I do not think I have sleep apnea because the tech never came back to attach me to a Cpak machine, so that hurdle was avoided, still waiting on confirmation though.
In the writing world I am working on homework assignment for class. Fun. Fun. I do need to post something soon I guess. There wasn’t any writing today although I did make it through Chapter ten of To Kill A Mockingbird. I have already read this book a few times, but it’s required reading so why not re-read it again.
Hope everyone has a safe and warm night.
