We'll Take It!
So Chloe wasn't exactly "discharged" from the pulmonologist's service, but her sleep apnea HAS dramatically improved and we don't need to repeat the sleep study (assuming no symptoms arise) for another year! Woo hooo! He DOES expect that once her tonsils and adenoids come in her sleep apnea will get worse again (she does still have it but withOUT desaturations in her oxygen level and withOUT changes to her vitals - that's ALL good). So the next step will be to take out her tonsils and adenoids and then continue to monitor her to determine if she'll need to utilize the cpap again, but for now she is officially OFF OF CPAP. Another wooo hooo! She's come a long way baby!
