tonite i’m spending the night at the hospital, in the “sleep disorders center”, being tested for sleep apnea. my wife is tired of my increasingly loud snoring, and of the pauses in breathing, wondering if i’ll take another breath or not. i have to check in at 7:30, and they say i’ll be released around 6am. should be interesting!
6 hours of restless sleep, and i’m home. i had something like 30 electrodes (i’m not sure if they’re called that) attached all over my body. i looked like the bionic man in process. the worst part was the removal — especially those on my legs that were taped on (think: the back-waxing scene in 40 year-old virgin).
no real news, as it was a “sleep tech” there last night, not a doctor. but he did say my blood oxygen level got into the 80s, and anything below 90 is a concern. so, i’m guessing i’m going to get one of those darth vader sleeping masks (CPAP, which always looks like CRAP when i first see it).
off to a groggy day.
