The sleep study

The day after we took James to the cardiologist, I went to see an Ear, Nose, and Throat specialist.  I have huge tonsils.  That's the short version of the story.  I had my adenoids taken out when I was 13 because they never shrank and were causing ear problems.  My tonsils have never gotten smaller either (yea, they're massive).  When talking to the doctor it also came out that I'm a loud snorer (sexy, right?) and that I had a sleep study done about 5 years ago due to family history of sleep apnea and the above mentioned facts.

So the doctor asks me: "How's your sleep been in the last year?"

HA!  Don't even get my started, buddy.

I go for my sleep study on August 8th.


  1. ...ear "problems"??? You had so many ear infection/strep throat episodes that we had a 55 gallon drum of Amoxicillan on hand.

    In hind sight, Dr D'Agostino should have removed the tonsils when he grabbed the adenoids and did your nose job.

  2. It wasn't a nose job! It was a deviated septum! (PS. I have to laugh when celebrities get a nose job and blame their totally new looking nose on a deviated septum.)
