Sleep Apnea

2 more nights.

2 more nights until my youngest daughter, aged 7 gets her tonsils out.

I am really looking forward to it.

She has Sleep Apnea. She has it bad.

When we took her to OHSU, the doctor took a look at her tonsils, looked at the video that I showed him and knew instantly she has it. 

It is hard to watch her struggling to breath at night. She isn't getting a good nights rest. I'll watch her sleep for a few minutes and in those few minutes, she wakes up often. She looks like she is gasping for air, she looks like she is going to throw up, her little stomach sinks in so deeply. And she snores, loudly.


So, 2 more nights.....

Below is the video that we showed the doctor and further reading.
