Sleep study

Results are in...they were worse than the last time! LOL. All I can do is laugh. It's laugh or cry...I choose laugh. We are a little surprised that they were worse. We knew that he wouldn't pass the study, but thought for sure he would at least do a little better. Not the case. I asked the doctor why they would be worse when he is getting bigger and stronger. She said that in his case (having Down Syndrome) getting bigger actually works against him. The bigger he gets, the bigger his adenoids and tonsils get, which blocks his small airway even more. Makes sense. We have not heard from the ENT, but we are assuming that the surgery will stay on the books for August 30th & he will start oxygen at night asap. Now to figure out what to do about the oxygen situation & vacation! We leave in 4 days!! Whoo hoo!!

Oh, and Jake wanted to say "Cheese"...while eating his Mac & Cheese!
