Sleep Study Results

I have lost count how many sleep studies Vera has gone through.
I don't stay overnight with her. So far, it's been her caregiver.
I can't bear to see her with all the probes and wires. I lose my cool with the person attaching them.
A sleep study is a misnomer - how to sleep at all with all that stuff sticking to your entire body?
We do it because we need to know what the optimum pressure setting is to support Vera's breathing when she sleeps.
Her settings have gone up slightly, from 15/7 to 17/7.
Her Respi doc says since she has grown a fair bit, this is expected to support her added weight.
