More info on the sleep study ...

So I found out that Payton's sleep study was evaluated and written up on 12/3/07. Over a month later I got the results. GRR. Here is the final outcome ...

Moderate obstructive sleep apnea syndrome, with mild sleep fragmentation, but without significant hypoxemia or carbon dioxide retention. Evaluation for upper airway obstruction is recommended. A repeat polysomnogram is recommended 3 months after surgery to determine if further therapy is required.

The sleep study ran for about eight hours and during that time, she woke up 17 times. We have an appointment to see our ENT this coming Wednesday and we will be scheduling surgery for a T&A from there.


  1. OK that really stinks that they didn't call you with the results! I am praying for little miss and her T&A surgery!

  2. I so understand your frustrations. Our results were being sent back East to be read and taking months as well.

    Beautiful kids and blog!

  3. poor payton.. i hate to hear she has to go through all this junk! praying it goes well!

  4. Gosh, that stinks! I'm anxious to see if they do a T&A on her. Nobody in San Antonio will take Darah's tonsils out. We had our third opinion today and he also agrees to leave them there. Keep me posted!
