I did the sleep study Wednesday night, and I do NOT have OSA.
I only slept 2 1/2 hours on Tuesday night (I was still awake at 2: am and was awake again at 4:30. I couldn't get back to sleep. I told the tech that I would probably sleep quite a bit Wednesday, and I was right.
There was only 1.6 "incidents" per hour and that is not enough for a diagnosis. Well I knew they wouldn't find anything. This was just preliminary courtesy call but I have to go back to my doctor for the "official" results.
Well our computer rescue guy came on Wednesday. It took him over 2 hours to do the restore, but he was finally able to get back to where we left on Friday (22nd) Turns out that the person who set up this back up system did not know what they were doing because NOTHING backed up all last week, except for Friday. Thank goodness that took or I would be still trying to re enter everything........UG (I lost everything I had entered on Tuesday and Thursday was a re-enter day. But it could have been worse. Had I not been trying to write cheques Wednesday morning, we might not have found it so quickly. Imagine if over a week had gone by! As for this week, Monday's back up did not, and Tuesday caused the problem instead of backing up! But the saga does not end there.
Because the server and our personal computers had been "set" by the new guy in all kinds of crazy ways, it turns out we have all kinds of "drives", both on our CP's and the server. Then over the past several months, our data has been duplicated again and again.. It would have been so easy to log into the wrong data base and that would have disastrous. Luckily, that didn't happen. He made sure that the restored data was correct for each of us and by then it was 4:30 so they called it a night.
He came back this afternoon in order to clean up the duplicate and triple drives, and to re-program the back up so it would work properly from now on. I don't know how late they stayed tonight, but as there wasn't anything I could do (I had to be off my computer so they could do all this stuff,) so I came home about half an hour early.
So not only is there going to be still a lot of catching up, cheques to finish writing, but I still have to do the stuff I should have been doing yesterday and today but obviously couldn't. And it is month end to boot!
I hope I can get some good sleep this weekend so I'm ready set go for Monday!
Have a good night everyone....
