Results of Sara's sleep study just came back...She is confirmed to have mild to moderate Sleep Apnea...this on a night when she had a "good" nights sleep compared to some she has at home...Next step is to see a Ear, Nose and Throat specialist about having her tonsils and adenoids removed...As moderate is a red flag for kids with this condition.
The results are no great surprise since this is why she was sent to have the study to begin with.
The benefits of the surgery will mean no more bouts of strep throat...less ear infections...BETTER NIGHTS SLEEP for Sara and me...general improved health since her body will be able to actually rest, so little colds like this past one will have less chance of turning into pneumonia again..
Right now I am simply exhausted, after this last 10 days of her being sick...She had another relapse on the weekend and spent Saturday morning at the walk-in clinic and all the time doing round the clock 4hrly breathing treatments from the 9th right up last night the 19th...This morning her lungs were finally deemed CLEAR...so tomorrow morning at 4am no more alarm clock telling me to get up to administer another breathing treatment...
So with that in mind, the idea of spending a week with her recovering from above mentioned surgery is not very welcome, but I am sure I will be less exhausted by the time we book her in...and the long term health benefits will out way the inconvenience of the recovery period.
Please say a little prayer for us and please excuse my tardiness in visiting yall and responding to your comments...
