Sleep Apnea Update

Today Owen had an appointment at Sleep Disorder Clinic. A few weeks ago Owen had an MRI on his brain stem to make sure he had no abnormalities that would cause his sleep apnea. His MRI came back clean!!! His doctor believes he just needs some more time to grow and have this area of his brain mature. Owen will be back at Sleep Disorder Clinic in August. At that time we will schedule another Sleep Study. Eventually Owen will no longer need to sleep with his oxygen and we will be checking in August to see if he is ready to loose the oxygen. Right now I am really grateful we figured out he needed the oxygen. He is a happier kid when he gets a good restful night of sleep.
