Documenting not dying since October 2013.

The 23rd & 24th; They'll know if I stop breathing.

ย The 23rd of April.

Huh, I've just realised I should have done a blog post this morning. Whoops. I shall do it when I've finished this.

Anyway. It's been a pretty busy day in our house. Not so much this morning - did some crocheting of a cat blanket, filled in my final sleep diary. After lunch, Christine went with Mommy to Grandma's, then from there to the station back to London. Daddy went to the dentist and hygienist, and I went to sit with Falcon and finally had a go at Bandersnatch. It took me a few goes, but I finally got to an ending with credits. Just in time too, because it was time for Daddy to take me to the QE to get my sleep study equipment fitted. Finally getting it done!

It was pretty busy in the sleep department, but I did some excellent driving and parked in a neat place. I read the first chapter of my new book (The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle) before my name was called. I got weighed, then the technician fitted me with the kit. I have a band around my ribcage with a small computer in it, which attaches to a band with a copper wire in around my breast bone, and another around my waist. Plus there is a sats probe and some nasal specs so they'll know if I stop breathing. It'll record from 11 until 7, and we just drop it off tomorrow morning. Luckily, Mommy has hand clinic, so she can take it with her!

The 24th of April.

Ugh, the sleep study did not go well. It took me over an hour to go to sleep, and I woke up multiple times, couldn't really get comfortable...then I realised this morning that I'd forgotten to set my sleep app recording, so I don't know for sure how long I slept for or anything. Most frustrating.

Mommy had to go to the hospital for hand clinic, so she took the kit with to hand back in. I spent my morning crocheting a cat blanket and watching The Moomins. They are good escapism.

Mommy got home about twelve, only for us to then both go back to the QE for me to see Mr. Kolli. The pressures in my eyes have stayed pretty stable, so we can schedule the surgery. Take the steroids down to once a day until the week before, then do them four times a day in the right eye (the one we're doing first). I need to have a pre-op because he wants anaesthetic support just in case I have breathing issues lying flat, so that has to come first, and he's booked up for the next four weeks, plus his secretary isn't in this week, so I'm not looking at surgery until probably early June?

When we get home, I went to sit with Falcon and we watched some tv and listened to a podcast until I had to pee so had to chuck him off my lap. Then I started knitting my sleeve again because my wool arrived today. Soon it will be finished!
