What a blessing to awaken feeling refreshed. A few weeks back, I went through a sleep study because, well, in a word, I had become tired of awakening tired and I was fed up with causing my dear heart to miss sleep due to my worsening SNORING! It needed to be addressed.
Went to the local trusted hospital. Checked in to the sleep lab. Spent a night all wired up for everything but sound. Spent the night being studied while I demonstrated "skillfully" my inability to sleep and was thereafter provided a means to attain rest. Wow.
I had been experiencing apnea events sixty times an hour. No wonder neither my wife could sleep at my side, nor could I awaken refreshed. Sure pain was under control through my Boston Sci Precision Plus SCS, but rest is paramount when managing pain.
Last night was the first night using my CPAP rig. It was convenient. Silent. Comfortable. Above all, I awakened without the feeling of "argh, why am I awake again?" Not bad. Definitely a gift worth giving my beloved wife. Sleep.
I feel blessed,
AND ready for another day of work,
