You'll Never Guess Where I am Right Now


I am at the DeVos Children's Hospital Sleep Disorders Clinic. Claire was scheduled for her sleep study on November 14, but we got a call late this afternoon asking if we could come tonight. There was a cancellation and they like to keep their schedule full.
We headed off to GEMS (I was in charge of the craft so I had to get them started before we came downtown) and then came here. She was a little anxious, but not bad....Until she saw all of the wires. We had to complete a questionaire when we arrived. It asked how anxious she was on a scale of 1 - 10. I told her 1 was just a little anxious and 1o was really scared. She said she was a 1. Then they came in with all of the leads and wires and she looked at me and said "Mom, change that to a 10." I assured her that they would not hurt and were more like strings than wires (ie; they would not shock her). After all of the hooking up, she thought it was quite amusing.

We will not have results for about a week. The clinic sends the study to the sleep specialist and he will write a report for us and Claire's primary care doctor. Just have to wait and see....
