Sleep Study, the "titration"

I feel like the beaker that's met the pipette. Yes, I've been titrated.

I get the official results from the doctor soon, but bottom line: I can sleep with the funny mask on my face, even with electrodes all over my body. And my O2 levels don't drop and I stop partially waking up. Even better: the tech was able to scale the pressure back from "gale force" to a more reasonable level and still stop the apnea. (This is the titrating part--striking the balance between the awakening effect of having something blowing air in your nose with the awakening (and health-damaging) effect of stopping breathing throughout the night).

In other health news, Quinn is going to get tubes in his ears. Sigh.

    When W gets back to us from Tennessee, this young pup will be joining us, becoming a Livestock Guardian Dog for the chickens.

    We're looking forward to meeting her, too.

    I think Pam's not trained to react to the back side of a phone the same way one responds to a camera.
