Don't try this in bed.

My Co-Pilot snores. Loudly. It wakes me up. Nothing could be more disturbing, right?

Uh, uh. He's going to a specialist about it soon. Specialist wants me to go too. Why? Co-Pilot is asleep when it happens, so doctor will ask me about it.

We even have homework.
Co-pilot has to .....sleep.
I have to....make a recording of the snoring and when Co-pilot stops breathing (sleep aponea).

So, last night I was awakened by an end-of-the-world chainsaw noise next to me. Shall I get up and find my PDA? OK. Snoring settles down. Doze. Snoring starts.

Turn on PDA

"Bip". The "recording started" noise wakes Co-Pilot slightly. I'm too tired to get out of bed, turn on the light and switch off quiet bipping setting. Doze. Listen to breathing become shallower, shallower, shallower... building up to an aponea "Bip". No good. Noise stops the snoring.

Inadvertently have discovered the cure for Co-Pilot's snoring. Works better than hitting or turning him onto his side. Inadvertently have discovered cure for sleeping for me. 4:30am and I was up for the day.

Mr 3 had previously woken me up at 12:30am, wanting his wheatbag microwaved again. (We use them instead of hot water bottles).

Today I was a bleary-eyed semi-human traveller.

Tonight I'll unbip my PDA and see whether I can tape my Co-Pilot's snoring. Wish me luck and pleasant dreams.

Hi Sirexcat
JB also snores. I know what you mean! Recording him is a great idea.
Hope you get some sleep (spare beds are great!)

Recording him is a great idea for some doctor who is also asleep! If it helps to fix it all, I guess it's worth it.
Yes...I sneak into Mr3's room and sleep in the bunk if it's too much.
