Sleep Study Clinic [Nov. 21st, 2005|07:46 am]

Okay, I underwent a sleep study last night at National Jewish's Sleep Clinic. Let me tell you it was soooo different than anything I even expected.... first you arrive not EARLIER than 8:45 PM and wait for the tech to let you into the clinic, then you fill out the paperwork, unless you did it from the online info they send you ahead of time Like I did, then they lead you to a private bedroom where you get into your jammies. then a tech comes in and 'wires you up' and this process takes about 45 mins, although the time goes quickly, then the tech hands you a CPAP (I'll explain that later) mask (usually they only cover your nose, but since I have a stuborn nose, I had to have a full face mask) and turn it on to show you what it's like. I have claustrophobia, so i had to go abot getting the mask on a different way, but once I did I was alright. Once you practice breathing with the mask, she then hooks up all the wires to a small box that is then tied into the network. Then you're put on a pulse/Ox monitor and a nasal cannula is put in in case you need supplemental O2... luckily I didn't... then you read or whatever for about a half hour or so. I'm not sure what time it was but i fell into a somewhat fitful sleep cus I was in a strange bed... I slept for awhile before she came in to say i had unhooked something, once settled I went back to sleep after going to the bathroom... I slept for a while longer before the tech came in to put the mask on... that was soo fun... NOT.. it hurt my cheekbones something awful, but i made it through about two hours of this before I asked if there was another mask I could try... after going to the bathroom for the 2nd time, I was given a mask that had more 'cushioning' on it and that seemed to work better. With the mask, I was able to fall into a more pleasent sleep even lying on my back, and had some strange dreams... I was awakened about 5:30 AM and the tech unhooked me. I then filled out a questionnaire and then gathered up my stuff including my pillows and headed home befor ethe sun rose... so here I am all clean (the stuff they use to keep the wires to your hair is grose but water soluble so it came out in the shower) and getting ready to make me some breakfast... just thought I'd let you all know what I did last night....

I wronte this earlier in my personal journal -----Hello

Oops found out what happens when you just randomly push keys on your keyboard... not good let me tell you...
So, in about 2 hours MY TIME (It's 1:04 in the morning here), we will OFFICIALLY FALL BACK!!
What I'd like to know is who the hell decided that the time change would occur at THREE O'CLOCK IN THE FRIGGIN' MORNING?!?!HUH?!?!? WHO?!?!? Which President??? I mean it has to have been a prez. cus Prez. Bush decided to extend DST by about a month on each end commencing in 2007... as if I need anymore daylight then there already is... hmmm wonder if the rest of the world sufferes the same fate?? and what about the states taht don't change in teh spring or fall, and then there's Indiana, where only PART of the state takes part in this time change thingy... My brother lives in AZ and let me tell you, half the time he's on Mountain time, the other half he's on Pacific, makes trying to figger out when to call him hell... man
I've been reading CSI fic and going over a story I had started (But haven't finished) while listening to JACK FM on my 'puter... those who wanna know, it's a local radio station that's owned locally, yet there's another station JUST LIKE IT in CANADA!!! Go figger, same logo, same tag line, "Playing what we want"... anywho, the Denver station can be found at http://www.1055jackfm.com/ give it a listen, I do... it's fun, hardly any commercials, some of the best music from the 70s, 80s, and 90s, and they don't play nearly as much Michael Jackson as Music Choice does (on my cable).

Okay, i think i'm finally sleepy enuf to go to bed, thanks for listening, not that i think anybody really is that is... so on that depressing note.
Nighters to all.... and may your .... nah, i won't go there, don't wanna piss anybody off who could REALLY curse me...

Well, it's snowing, has been since early morning. Big fluffy flakes filled with enuf water to fill rivers and lakes. Thanks to a Canadian cold front and moisture from the Gulf of California, we are experiencing quite a spat of winter-like weather in early fall. 'Bout par for the course here tho, in Denver we can get snow as early as late August and as late as early July, soooo...
okay, i'll let ya'll go now...

A little bit about the weather [Oct. 5th, 2005|05:27 am]

My mom's sister and brother-in-law are coming in from Valley Ford California (northern part of the state) and mom's wishing the weather would stay warm so that she can show off her garden. Well, mom nature seems to have a different idea, it's down in the lower forties this morning, but tonight it's supposed to be our first FREEZE! (those who don't know are aren't sure where I am located, I'm in Denver Colorado)
well, mom's NOT gonna cover her petunias or roses (she has a new rose bush that was sent by my cousins in Oregon after Dad died and we planted it in May and it took to the soil like gangbusters) or any of the other plants. (mom joked about covering the Four O'Clocks and I'm like, if you're gonna cover them, you might as well cover the whole lawn!, she laughed)
Okay, enough about the weather for now.... be back soon with more.
