More on the Apnea

Got the results.....actually, I got them right before we moved and well, just haven't had time to update.

The pedi's nurse called and said "mild obstructive apnea" and that since we were moving, we could wait a month or so before getting him into an ENT in Michigan.

I got the paperwork and it says "moderate obstructive sleep apnea" and that we should see an ENT as soon as possible.

Well, we still had the move to consider. Now that things have calmed down a little, I called an ENT that my mom has seen (since there are no pediatric ENTs in our network up here). Henry's going on June 24th for his appointment and at that point we'll find out what we'll be doing for his apnea.

He's still incredibly congested. One of the pedis back home thinks his nasal passages are inflamed or narrow. He's not showing signs of needing suctioning, but you can hear his difficulty breathing all the time.

So, little man will be getting his 4 month shots on the 23rd with the new pedi (my old one) and seeing the specialist on the 24th.
