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.
