and a Purple Dinosaur Bridge...
and the Sleeping Green Monster...
What could be next?
Um....this is starting to look ominous.
Oh, no! They turned him into a robot!
And then they said, "Good night! Sweet dreams!"
The American Academy of Pediatrics now recommends that all children with Down syndrome have a sleep study done by the time they are 4 years old. So Wade had his done Friday night. How you can have that many wires coming from your head, face, legs, chest, and big toe and still have anything that resembles a night of sleep is a wonder to me!
But he did!
Daddy stayed all night with him and said he was sleeping within 10 minutes of crawling into bed.
Now we are waiting on the results. Apparently, a rather high percentage of children with Down syndrome have problems with sleep apnea. We have questions about the quality of Wade's sleep at times. He goes to sleep quickly but then sometimes tends to wander out of bed and fall asleep again instantly in odd places. Why does he get out of bed when he's obviously still very tired? We don't know.
