Sleep and the kid with special needs.

Where’s the Sandman when you really need him?

Don’t let this peaceful little face fool you. He woke up this morning at 4:00 a.m…. a total wild man.

After only 6 hours of sleep, Parker’s eyeballs popped open and all hell broke loose.

This humidifier used to have a bag of inhalation water attached to it. At about 4:10 a.m. Parker yanked that sucker off and proceeded to soak his bed and the floor with it.

(Yeah, I think I’ll get down there and do some serious cleaning when I replace that humidifier and inhalation bag..  blech.)

At 4:15 a.m. we were changing sheets and pajamas.

After being awake a few hours, my littlest Hodson boy crashes again. So asleep that you couldn’t wake him up if you had to.

And that’s not all. Parker has become a very restless even when he sleeps.. Several times during his the night, he’ll sit up, look around, tug on his vent, and then fall back asleep.

I thought at first this was the result of changing Parker’s Viagra to Cialys. But when I called Cardio he knew of no sleep issues associated with this medication.

Sleep is so important to a child’s development and ability to learn. Not to mention how essential to this Mama’s sanity. It looks as though we’ll need to schedule a new sleep study. This time I’m going with our new Pulmo rather than through PCMC.

Does your child have sleep issues? What have you done to address them?
