Sleep Study

Hello my friends, hope you are all enjoying your weekend. Eddie, Coco, and me, are spending the weekend under a blanket. It is so cold here in Tennessee, in the low 50's. Waiting to watch our team(Alabama) play tonight at 8:30. Roll Tide!! Last night, I had to spend the night at a sleep center. My neurologist wanted me to have a sleep study, because if you have any type of sleep problem, and are unaware of it, it could cause you to have a stroke in your sleep. Well, they woke me up this morning to get ready to go home, and told me that I have to come back this Friday, for another test. The test last night, showed that my oxygen level drops several times during the night, I stop breathing several times during the night, and my heart races several times during the night. Would appreciate your prayers concerning this. Bye for now, sweet blessings to everyone.

I hope you find successful treatment for this; my dad had a c-pap machine which worked wonders for helping him sleep.

Hi Denise, good luck with your sleep study. Many people have had good results with the sleep machine. My hubby and youngest son are in Tuscaloosa tonight at the game, but my oldest son went to college at Ms. State so he is not a happy camper right now! It's a little cool here tonight, too. Stay warm, Alabama is whoopin up on those Ms State boys pretty bad! :)
Roll Tide!

I know all about those sleep studies. I've had a couple myself. If your oxygen levels are dropping you probably have sleep apnea and will be prescribed to wear a CPAP machine when you go to sleep. It helps keep your air passages open so you can breathe well at night. I will pray for you. Blessings. xx

My husband participated in a sleep study recently; didn't sleep very much! This is good to know, Denise. I pray you receive the much needed care you deserve. Take good care of yourself, sister.
