“Operation Decannulation” Step Two

"Silent Night, Holy Night..."
"All is calm, all is bright.."
"Sleep in heavenly peace? Sleep in heavenly peace..."


Well, I’m not sure how he did it, but Rudy managed to fall asleep last night after getting “plugged in” from every direction!!  We arrived at the Sleep Lab at CHLA for our 9pm admit and although he put up a bit of a fight when the tech was adhering all the probes, he drifted off to sleep a little after 10pm.  I drifted in and out of sleep and got up to suction Rudy twice during the night.  By 5:30am, the study was done and we were released at 6am.  Unfortunately, the tech couldn’t tell me how he did – we have to wait for the doctor to give us the results so hopefully we’ll hear from Dr Pornchai T. or Dr. Nina soon.  Nonetheless, step two of the process is over and we will await further instructions on what to do next.   In the meantime we have a full week ahead of a variety of commitments and activities AND Wilson & Max are home sick.  (Good grief!)  ‘Praying now for health in the Geyling household. 

Early morning wake-up call!

  1. Poor thing, he looked like a Robot with all of those wires. Thanks for keeping us posted and I’ll be praying that Rudy doesn’t get the bug that is going around your house. Love you, chicka!

  2. Rudy is such a good boy–always doing everything that is required of him. Loving someone else is like seeing the face of God and what a face he has!

  3. Wowza – that’s a heckuva lot of wire! So glad it didn’t keep Rudy from sleeping through and getting that study out of the way. Praying you all get well and stay well!

  4. Poor little Rudy…all that stuff does not look like a recipe for good sleep! Praying you all get some rest and that Max and Wilson will soon be healthy!

  5. Rudy is the trooper and we’re all praying for good news from the sleep study. Hope Wilson and Max are better soon! Love you all!

  6. Rudy has done a lot of amazing things in his life…sleeping in a strange place while hooked up to all those wires has to be up there near the top!

    Love and Blessings of health to you all! Hope Max and Wilson recover quickly!

  7. I think Rudy had more fun in San Diego than he did doing the sleep study. I can’t be sure of this, but I will ask him someday to make sure. Praying for everyone to get and then stay healthy!!

  8. Oh poor baby!!! I hope your boys didn’t catch what CC had!!! I’m sorry!!! Still smiling from the delight of having you all here!! Loves and hugs!!! Praying especially for the mommy and daddy who have to keep it all together….peace to you!

  9. Hi Geylings!
    Wow, I just decided to look at Rudy’s beat, and saw pics of CHLA! I didn’t know you were here!!! Are you still? Daisy will be here until Saturday afternoon, and she would love to meet Rudy! And I would love to meet Trish! Maybe if you’re around and there’s a good time for a quick hug, you can let me know. i’m pretty sure you have my email address… praying for precious and amazing Rudy, and for the family. You guys are amazing and adorable and a total blessing!

  10. Wow! God must be thinking “I really created one heck of a fighter, and what a testimony he is!!!” I was thinking that too, but God overrules me by a landslide! LOL! My prayers are with all of you for peace, health, healing, love and joy in every step!

    Jesus is the Reason for the Season!
