You know you're tired when you drive past one of these sets of zig zagsand you find yourself thinking "Oh, that's a good trace"
and then you realise the noise isn't an alarm; it's your engine, and you remember you are driving.
So then, you get a new monitor, a new flashy fancy monitor with a clever little setting which means it doesn't alarm every time SATs drop, only when they either drop dramatically, or they dip but stay dipped. It's very very cool. And it didn't alarm for four whole hours last night. Which meant I had to get up at 1AM just to check it hadn't been switched off.
Unfortunately it then went off at approximately hourly intervals throughout the rest of the night, until it got so that every time I lay down again, I could hear the beep BEEP BEEEEEEEEEP beep beep even when it wasn't actually doing anything at all. And then after about 5 it was going so constantly I gave up on trying to sleep and went and had a nice little chat with Trina. So thankful for different time zones. And intrigued by descriptions of her own home made jaw support she fashioned a few years ago out of a bicycle helmet and some tape when her son was having similar problems.
Somewhat annoyingly, it didn't alarm at all after that and Mog had a beautiful couple of hours of peaceful sleep.
And then in the morning, I made the discovery that walking isn't terribly safe either - these pedestrian crossing lights
start to look disconcertingly like our new monitor
and I found myself reaching out to grab Little Fish's jaw, much to her confusion.
We're getting a night carer. Can't come soon enough!
