A few friends have asked for an update, so I thought I'd better make a note here on my blog about the results of my study. I went up to see the neurologist as a follow-up appointment two weeks after my study. As he came in, he proclaimed, "Well, I guess we can determine that you're the worst sleeper in the world!" He went on to say that he just chuckled to himself as he read all the paperwork on my study. I, being good natured, also saw the humor in it and laughed along with him. It truly was a terrible study! Then he said what I thought he'd say: we were able to rule out sleep apnea and therefore I probably don't need another overnight study done. However, he wants me to try the daytime sleep study (multiple sleep latency test) again. I shared my apprehension that it would do much good, but was willing to try again. He assured me that he's not going to leave me out to dry if they aren't able to determine anything. I feel pretty well taken care of and comfortable that something will eventually get resolved!
I'm saved by grace, through faith in Christ. I've been married for 12 years and have two daughters. I am a stay-at-home mom and wouldn't have it any other way. The days are sometimes very hard and the work is absolutely exhausting, but the most rewarding thing I could think of to do. I truly feel that the investment of my most quality hours of the day put into my children will reap rewards for the rest their lives, and in turn, my own. I have so many other things I'm interested in and every once in a while I get to pursue them, but most of them are so trivial in comparison to loving the Lord and my family!
