... she's a trooper...



my girl is amazing. 
 
she and i spent the night at scottish rite children's hospital last night for sara to complete a sleep study.  isn't she a cutie?  even with all of those wires attached to her body, she was smiling.  toni, our nurse, said there were close to 30 different wires taped to her head, chest, back, and belly. there was only a brief instance of fear along with tears, and then she was super brave the remainder of the night. we didn't get much sleep because of consistent equipment failure throughout the evening, but hopefully they were able to gather the data they need.
results are back in 7 to 10 days so i'll let you know what we find out.

(oh. sorry for the poor photo quality. i'm thinking i need an iphone so that i can really capture important moments a bit more clearly. don't you agree?)

She is quite a trooper... I did a sleep study and was had 70+ times that I would have interruptions in my sleep... never getting to REM sleep. I remember the good ole days of falling asleep and waking in the same position I started :)

I hope she gets good results or at least results that help you make a good decision.

A trooper, yes. And I totally agree with the iPhone assessment. Steve and I actually talked about that when we got lost looking for Starbucks. iPhones all around!
