Sleep study review: Who slept?

Thank you for all the encouragement and prayers.  Dariya did much better than I thought she would.  We booked the earliest time to check in at 6:45pm knowing that it took over an hour to attach all the wires and probes.  Without a nap I knew my girlie would be SO ready for bed.

We were checked in around 7:30 and they gave us a couple minutes to settle in before starting to attach all the wires.  Dariya won them over in seconds with her sweet personality, they couldn't stop oohing and ahhing over her.
Thankfully another family was a no show so we were blessed with two sweet techs that moved at lightening speed to get her all set up.  Of course, lightening speed with all this wiring is still about 45 minutes.   Dariya watched Signing Time for a while and played on the iPad which entertained her for the most part.  She did have a couple good screaming fits asking to go to bed.

About 9 we were ready way past ready for bed.  Thankfully she allowed me to rock her to sleep, which was the first time EVER!

She slept all night and left all her wires alone, although she had numerous times where she drifted awake and banged her head to get back to sleep.  So needless to say, Dariya got WAY more sleep than I did last night.

I will definitely take the advice of others and allow Alayna to nap next week before her sleep study.  I understand they want them to be tired so they go right to sleep but, overtired doesn't look good on any of us.  ;)

We hope you have a blessed Good Friday!

The Death of Jesus  Matthew 27

45 At noon, darkness fell across the whole land until three o’clock. 46 At about three o’clock, Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Eli, Eli,[j] lema sabachthani?” which means “My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?”[k]
47 Some of the bystanders misunderstood and thought he was calling for the prophet Elijah. 48 One of them ran and filled a sponge with sour wine, holding it up to him on a reed stick so he could drink. 49 But the rest said, “Wait! Let’s see whether Elijah comes to save him.”[l]
50 Then Jesus shouted out again, and he released his spirit. 51 At that moment the curtain in the sanctuary of the Temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook, rocks split apart, 52 and tombs opened. The bodies of many godly men and women who had died were raised from the dead. 53 They left the cemetery after Jesus’ resurrection, went into the holy city of Jerusalem, and appeared to many people.
54 The Roman officer[m] and the other soldiers at the crucifixion were terrified by the earthquake and all that had happened. They said, “This man truly was the Son of God!”

We remember His death and we celebrate His resurrection with joy!
Thank you Jesus for giving your life for us!!!

I'm pretty sure we'll be doing this again soon as Josie has a wicked snoring issue that appears to be getting worse. So inquiring minds must know, how in the heck did you keep her from pulling on those wires???? I've already told Travis that he must accompany Josie to the sleep lab because I cannot even imagine the struggle it will be!
