Bye, Bye Oxygen!
It's official, Sophia's oxygen tanks and her monitor will be leaving us tomorrow! I got the results back from the sleep study we did last Monday and apparently she was in a deep sleep long enough for them to find out that she doesn't need her oxygen. We kind of already knew this, but coming from the doctor makes it official. We also found out that this time around she didn't have near as many sleep obstructions as last time, which is why we got referred to an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist a few months back. Last time she had over 100 obstructions while she slept, this time she had 9! So apparently the older and bigger she gets, the better some of these issues are getting as well! It will be so nice not to have all this extra equipment around, especially when we aren't using it anyway, but I'm a little nervous about the pulse oximeter leaving. It was nice having her hooked up at night to something that would alert us if there was a problem. But we can't be dependant on it forever and we haven't had any problems in over a year, so it may take some time to get used to not having it at night, but it will all be fine :)
