September 1st, 2010

We received the results of Carver's latest Sleep study. The study didn't show any "sleep apnea". It shows some desats, but nothing major. We were given the green light to "try" him off oxygen at night. He will still be monitored while he sleeps, but he won't be required to wear his oxygen unless he is having problems breathing - signs of sleep apnea or desats. We started Monday night. He did really good Monday night. Last night he had 4 desats at 87-88. He was able to recover from all of them on his own. Meaning, that I didn't have to do anything to stimulate him. We are supposed to monitor him till Friday morning and then report the results to his pulmanologist. We'll see how the rest of the week goes. It would sure be nice to get rid of the huge O2 tanks in the house! Not to mention all of the tanks when we are driving out of town. I feel like we're driving a huge O2 missile.

My fingers crossed real tight for no more O2 missiles in the near future!

Speaking of driving that huge O2 missile, I really miss the great parking that came along with it haha :) but not as much as I like being O2 free. Good Luck!
