Mommy report: Wired and ready to sleep

I’m home, after dropping Braska and M off at Children’s.  We got her all set up and wired up, and she did SO well.  I didn’t think she’d tolerate all the sticky things and leads, but she didn’t flinch.  Well, until they wanted to use one that would hook around her lip.  Nope, that was not going to happen.  Thankfully, her super nice tech Donna had another cannula without that hook, so all was ok.

Here’s a pictorial version of the process.

The little TV with Sprout on it was the saving grace.  She stayed focused on that and didn’t mind the rest of the action happening to her. 

She was happy that Daddy was in p-jammies to and was ready to snuggle.

The final look, cannula and all.

A hug from Mommy before I left for the night.  She was plenty tired.

Last minute adjustments.  She had leads on her legs, chest, face, and head.

Ready to sleep, Daddy close to make sure she went down ok.

Quite a bunch of wires for such a small girl.

And finally, here’s a little clip with one sleepy girl’s “good night.” 


  1. What a little angel. She looks so cute in her jammies!

  2. sweet girl! Hope you have some answers in the morning.

  3. She's just a cutie- even with the gazillion wires and goop in the hair :) Hope it was a successful study and you find some answers. We had to go to Chicago for Dom's since no one in C-U monitors CO2 output...snuggle your lil misses from us!

  4. Ahhhh sweet Braska...so adorable.

  5. I am anxiously waiting for reports.


Be sure to leave a note so Mommy can read them to me each day!! (Sorry to add the moderation, but we were getting spammed!!) Thank you!
