Wish Me & Archie Luck!

// October 2nd, 2008 // Kids, Life

We are off to the hospital shortly as Archie is going to have a sleep study to see if he has sleep apnoea. This means he has to sleep at the hospital with little electrodes attached to many many parts of his body, and they monitor his oxygen levels and all sorts of other things no doubt. In recent years, it’s been discovered that a large proportion of kids with Down Syndrome have sleep apnoea, which can impact their development quite significantly as they are not getting proper rest. Archie had it before which is why he had his tonsils and adenoids removed. If he still has it, he may need to wear a special mask when he goes to bed at night.

Anyway it’s my turn to be the lucky parent who sleeps at the hospital with him – as you can imagine, it’s no easy task getting him to lie still while the millions of electrodes are attached, nor is it fun getting him to sleep in such an interesting environment! Hence the luck wishing, please!
