Or, not too much sleep study, as it turned out to be. Noah has irregular sleep patterns, so we did a sleep study with TCH. They attach a lot (really, A LOT) of monitors to his head, face and body in a strange room in the hospital, then tell him to go to sleep. And me, too, since I was with him. It was a rough night. Evry time he’d drift off to sleep, they’d come in to adjust a monitor that had been knocked loose. Which would wake him up. And then he’d start thrashing at the various monitors on his body, which would have to be readjusted all over again.
All that aside, what we learned is that Noah has mild apnea. Not enough to do anything about, though. He also demonstrates sleep patterns that are common among kids with autism.
On the bright side, this study went WAY better than the one Sami tried to do with him last year. That one did not go well at all.
