Sleep Study Picture

From Michelle:

Abby is such a good sport.

I am with Abby at her sleep study. They placed wires on her from head to toe, stuck tubes under her nose and then wrapped her head in gauze to keep the electrodes on her head in place. Abby was not thrilled about having so many things stuck on her but didn't complain at all.

This test was originally ordered because sleep apnea can sometimes cause increased intracranial pressure. I doubt this is the cause but it is reasonable to test her.

Please join us in praying for accurate results. We would love to hear that that everything is fine but would also love to find a way to help Abby rest better so she would have more energy to play, learn, heal and grow.

Thank you for praying for Abby.

Ah, I just had one of those a few nights ago, but I didn't look nearly as cute as Abby! She is such a little trooper. Our family prays for her and for your family every night.

I hope you both were able to get restful sleep. My husband has sleep apnea, so he has had several sleep studies. With the frequent interuptions he typically doesn't get much rest and I know I don't sleep well when he's gone overnight at the sleep center!
Hang in there!

Oh she is too cute - I'm not sure if I posted Naomi' sleep study photos they used the gauze to make her look like a bunny!

Praying you get the results needed to help Abby! Praying for continued divine wisdom on how to help treat her best!

Love and blessings,
Jill

What a sweet girl to put up with all this. Although when you see someone all rigged up for a sleep study (my dad had one) you wonder how they are expected to get any sleep with all that stuff on. Praying all goes well and the study gives you some answers that lead to a good night's rest for Abby.

I've only been following your posts for a short time. But in that length of time, Abby has been through so much. You're right, she seems to endure more than any of us could but yet she keeps a sweet spirit. My thought and prayers are with her. I also pray for the you and the rest of your family.

Awww, how can Abby manage to look so cute with all that stuff all over her??? She takes the most adorable pictures. Especially love the one from the recent in-patient stay.

Praying for answers. Good ones.

continued prayers in your direction. Please keep us posted as to how she does and what the findings are. This little kiddo needs a break and some good news. Still thinking about ideas for keeping Abby busy as you requested that don't take a lot of her energy.

She is such a doll. I have been talking to my 5 year old Abby about your 5 year old Abby and she was so excited that she was out of the hospital. She kept asking me how your Abby was and I was happy to finally tell mine that yours was out of the hospital.

We are in central OK! Maybe they should be pen pals!

I think I was scowling for 2 days after the test....
Abby you make that test look easy and no prob....
You give all a little more to think about girl and remind us to chill a little also...

Should we pray that she *does* have sleep apnea, and that is the cause of her high pressures? That would be awesome if it was caused by something other than the chemo, something that could be treated more easily (I assume?).

Praying for brave Abby girl.
It is amazing that she could actually get any sleep with all that stuff attached to her.
Praying that she would get the rest she needs and for answers and God's love and grace to continue to fill and cover her and your family.
Love and hugs and prayers,
Debi
