So last night was the big sleep study night. Firstly we had to have Ethan fed, bathed and at the hospital by 5.30pm. So that meant dinner at 4.20pm!
We arrived at the hospital and spent about 15 minutes getting Ethan settling in and comfortable.
Then it was action time - the technicians had to put numerous electrodes and sensors all over his wee body. Ethan was very patient and didn't try to pull any off at all. He was very distracted by the Thomas the Tank Engine DVD for about 5 minutes, and then we had to work a little bit at keeping Ethan entertained. He was a really amazing little boy and I was so proud of him
Here's my little mummy with his wires and the life-saving DVD player!
Here is the box with some of the connections!
Ethan only slept for 5 hours... and it was very restless sleep. That restlessness, on top of the technician coming into the room and adjusting the sensors at least 6 times (and various alarms going off), I ended up getting around 1 - 1.5 hours sleep.
So all in all it was a very tough night and we are both a little worse for wear this morning! Ethan is currently off in dreamland now and I will be spending the next hour (as long as he stays asleep) on the couch!
Our follow up appointment with the surgeon is in 2 weeks so we will know whether it is surgery before Christmas or not soon!
