Here we go again. Bridger had to endure another sleep study. Since this isn't our first rodeo, I knew what we were in for. This time around, it was even worse. Now that he is bigger, stronger, and more accurate with his hands, it made for one heckuvva night trying to restrain him from pulling off all the wires.
I feel for him...can you imagine what's going through his mind right now? He kept looking at me with those pleading eyes to rescue him. It was pure torture for him, but also for me, watching him have to endure this discomfort...for a whole 8 hours straight...wires everywhere from head to toe, a cannula in his nose, pulse ox on his toe, two belly bands tight around his waist. Goodness, I'd say that's one way to set someone up for failure for a study on their sleep?!?
Bridger didn't sleep well...at all. That was expected. The information gathered from this study did show moderate sleep apnea, so as a result, we have more doctor appointments as we look into getting his tonsils and adenoids checked with the ENT to see if they are the root of the cause?
He also had an EEG while there, and the results of that were also very abnormal. It's hard to know if it's because of his overall brain disease? Or something else? This kid keeps us on our toes with all the medical stuff.....
