Surgery is finally booked!

Posted on: February 10, 2011

Yay! Great news today. We saw the surgeon who agreed that the results of the sleep study (including very low oxygen saturation levels of 84%) are enough to indicate an obstructive breathing disorder/sleep apnea and warrant surgery. Even better, they just got a cancellation so instead of a mid-May appointment, we’re booked for March 9th.

As scary as the prospect of my baby going under anesthetic and having a scalpel in his mouth is, it doesn’t compare to the relief of knowing that he’s going to have an easier time breathing at night.

Finally, a real step forward.
