Sleep Issues: Conversation with the ENT

The ENT called this week to further discuss the results of Little Man’s sleep study. Although there was one episode of apnea (cessation of breathing), it does not warrant a diagnosis of apnea or surgery on the little guy’s throat. Little Man slept about 70% of the study time.

Sleep Issues: A Diagnosis?

Two weeks ago was Little Man’s two year checkup. 35 3/4″ tall, 30 pounds, big head, very healthy 🙂 But I told our ped about the snoring, gasping and coughing I noticed while LM and I co-slept in Florida in November. She preliminarily diagnosed him with obstructive sleep apnea. That would explain the frequent night… Continue reading Sleep Issues: A Diagnosis?
