Sleep study complete...

Now, we just await the results, and find out what's next.  I hope the sleep study comes back normal, but truthfully, it was hard getting to sleep that night.  I was super tired, but there were so many outside distractions that I usually don't have to worry about.  When I got to the hospital, it took about an hour to hook me up to all the wires.  I contemplated taking a pic, but decided not to…should have, it would have been funny.  There were wires everywhere.  I had adhesive everywhere!  They had about 4 or 5 wires attached to my head, 2 on each leg, some on my chest and abdomen, and about 6 or 8 on my face and neck…weird.  I remember thinking, "how am I supposed to sleep normally in this contraption of wires?"  I started falling asleep quickly, but outside, I could hear a barking dog.  I mean, it was in the 30s; who leaves their dog outside all night when it's freezing?!?!  I felt so bad for him.  Also, I could hear the train coming through.  Finally, I was able to sleep.  Once I fell asleep, I slept pretty well.  Or, as far as I know, I did.  It's weird having a camera staring down at your bed.  I guess the word of the day is 'weird', lol.  At 6am, she woke me up to get ready to go home.  Really?  I couldn't sleep in?  I think that would have helped the study, really…but anyway, I got dressed, filled out a survey about my night of sleep, and came home.  I thought that since it was 630, I'd go back to bed.  So, I climbed in bed, and as soon as I did, I heard, "hi mama"…Rianna was up…she's an early bird.  

The sleep study tech said that the sleep specialist will go over my results within 5 to 7 days, analyze them, and determine if I need to come back for a further test.  If everything was normal, I have to go to my cardiologist and see if she can figure out what's going on.  Last night, I worked, and I had a few (quite a few) heart palpitations.  I figured it's because I was moving around a lot last night, and I'm off my heart meds, which slow down my heart rate.  So maybe that was the problem.  I felt fine, I just had the fluttering in my heart and got a little nervous.  

Also, I'm debating on whether or not to post pics of my zipper scar, from new to now.  I'll let y'all know what I decide.  

Oh, by the way, I need to shout out a very special message to my baby boy.  HAPPY 7TH BIRTHDAY GAGE!  MAMA LOVES YOU SO VERY MUCH!!!!!  I bought him a super large cupcake and of course, he couldn't finish it.  But it made him happy!
