Payten's Sleep study

Yes I finally got the results, after I called the doctors office. They actually did not have th results so they had to call the specialist and have them faxed over to them. Well it is not what I wanted to hear. She has a mild sleep apnea. That is when their breathing is interrupted while they are sleeping. It can be caused by a few different things. Our next step is to take her to see a ear,throat,nose specialist. Hopefully it will end up being her tonsals or adnoids being in larged. They can be fixed with surgery. I will definitely keep you all updated. I hope they figure something out soon. I don't know how much longer mommy and daddy can keep on getting a few hours of sleep a night. I know I am going to head up to bed very shortly. I had a hard time staying awake all day. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

As for all you people in PA, play alot in the snow for me. I am missing it. Hoping there will be some when I go home in 2 weeks with the girls.

I'm glad to hear that they atleast came to a conclusion. I'll be praying that the doctors will be able to figure out where to go next and get started with some sort of treatment so that you guys can finally get some sleep. I'm also hoping that there's still some snow when you guys are in. I'm sure the girls will love playing in it. Give them a hug for me. Love ya!

It sure is pretty out here. I didn't mind too much shoveling the snow. I hope we get some snow when you come home. This snow might be gone.
Love Mom

I had a girlfriend in IN that had her daughter's tonsils out and it was no biggie after a couple days. Hoepfully, this will be a quick fix and you all can get some much needed rest!

Hopefully things go ok and smooth for little Peyten. I know even if it's a small simple surgery it can be tough on a mom and the kid. Good luck
