Sleep Apnea Test...
Look! It's the bride of Frankenstein! Not actually, but scary I know! I was fortunate enough to undergo a sleep apnea test on Monday night. I dragged Deb along so she could snap a few photos of me after I was hooked up and ready to go. I arrived promptly at 7:45 pm and of course had a small delay at the registration desk. Once that was settled; off to the sleep clinic we went. After some paperwork and a short video; they started wiring me up. The whole process took about an hour an a half! Poor Deb! She was tired and I'm sure a little bored but she stuck it out! Now, the pics ARE NOT FLATTERING and I'm probably crazy for posting them, but oh well! It is what it is! It wasn't easy sleeping in this stuff but I did from 11:00 p.m. til 5:30 a.m. The tech said I do have some apnea but it wasn't severe enough to apply a C-PAP machine to me during the night. I follow-up with the doc in a week or so to get the final verdict. My favorite part of whole get-up was the straps they placed directly above and below my boobs. As you can see; it did not create an attractive look! Well, until next time; I'll keep snoring away!
