Sleep Study

Since Kaleigh was 3 she has had night terrors to which all the doctors have told us she would out grow them. Well over the years she hasn't out grown them and we have figured out some of the triggers like certain medications, hunger pains and very large tonsils (not that we didn't think this was the cause a long time ago). We finally got the ENT to send us to a sleep specialist.

So last night Kaleigh and I spent a night at the pediatric sleep center in Purcellville, Virginia. The people there are great, very good with kids and patient. The facility is clean and very quiet. Wouldn't you know she barely had an episode (only a little one about 4 in the morning), but she snored A LOT, so I'm going to guess those tonsils will be going in the future but since I'm not the expert we'll see what they say. It will take about 2 1/2 weeks for them to get back to us (kind of long really) but since the man who watched over us last night didn't seem like things were too urgent I guess I shouldn't worry. It is weird to see your child hooked up to every wire and still sleep pretty well. Don't know if I would have done so well without any assistance.
