What a day

It has been an interesting couple of days. I am happy to say, though, that Namine does not have appendicitis and we are home safe and sound. Jessica and Namine are both fast asleep now.

Ignoring the observer effect

As you may or may not recall, Namine recently had a sleep study at the hospital last week. The techs stuck wires and glue in her hair and told her to go to sleep, with the hope that this would be a decent indication of how she sleeps at home. And I can’t help but think, how can hospital workers be this daft?

Dermatology appointment

It’s always a bit frustrating for us when we have to deal with doctors who feel they know Namine better than we do. Imagine how maddening it is, then, when we meet a doctor for the first time and she is convinced that we are doing everything wrong.

Sleep study

Namine had a sleep study last night to observe her restlessness. The goal, of course, is to get her to stop rolling around as much, so that she gets better rest at night. But like Heisenberg, we know that putting leads and monitors on Namine interferes with normal sleep; as a result, she only slept in spurts of a couple hours, waking up, and falling asleep again. This went on for the entire night.
