Just for tonight! I will go to bed super early this time because last time I had to take the next day off work I was so fatigued and tired!
This time the doctor checked all the test charts and ok'd them before I left!
The box is my liquid dinner because the nose sensors make me gag!

My daughter had a similar look when she was dx with epileptic drop attacks... it was hard keeping all that get-up on a 3 yr old! That was 20 yrs ago now! This will soon be a distant memory πŸ€—

I'm glad you can tell I'm super pleased haha! It's not quite as annoying as it seems but I've got work tomorrow and I dunno how that's gonna go

Because nothing makes you sleep better than a host of wires and stickers all over your body....

Hahaha flappys I think that's a good plan. The worst thing is we are only doing the study to exclude sleep apnoea the doctor expects a normal result, with maybe an abnormal sleep cycle, but not sleep apnoea. So frustrating. I slept better than last time but I'm in a fair bit of pain under the meds and i dont know how my work day is going to go! Hopefully not too busy

Fancypants33, I hope that you have a lite workload and that you don't have a difficult day. To have to do that test twice really has to be a pain in the ass.. I'm
Sorry you've have to do it but you've handled it with good humor and class. (OMG!! I made it sound like you've gotten through eating ice creamπŸ˜³πŸ™„). Thank goodness for laughter, where would we be without it??
Flappsy, you're hysterical, have the tech take the next one!! I love it!!!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I just got a phone call from the clinic asking where I got my sleep study done.. The lady I talked to didn't know why they were calling to find out and couldn't tell me any more... If they've stuffed it again I'm going to be so mad 😑 Im going to have to refuse to go again I'm still suffering the after effects of the second one!

Complain to your insurance company if they flubbed it again, and ask if there's a different place to do it (if needed). Hugs love & prayers you won't have to!! πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΈ

I'm in Australia so insurance isn't a problem but you are right I should get my $50 back if it was botched again!
