Topher's sleep study is complete and now we are waiting to see the Ear Nose & Throat Dr (ENT). We got a letter this am reminding us of an appointment we didn't even know we had. They just made an appoitment and sent us a letter. Thankfully, the day works out. He will have to miss school, but that's ok. It sucks we have to wait till October to see the ENT! I wish we could have gotten in sooner.
His diagnosis are severe onset of insomnia and sleep disordered breathing! I am just praying that whatever we have to do to fix this, that it is something easy. Online it said they usually remove the tonsils and adnoids to correct obstructive sleep apnea in kids. However, not all kids are surgical candidates. It sounds like he will probably have to have surgery or wear a mask. Either way its gonna be a challenge. At least with the surgery he will probably (hopefully) be fine after healing. I don't see how sleeping with any type of equipment will make him better. That will be a nightmare! That being said, we will do whatever it takes for him.
