Two specialists. Two opinions. Confused mom.
Then we saw the pulmonologist earlier this week who said how great the sleep study was. She didn't have the final report but what she saw looked better. The pulmonologist called yesterday with the final report and said again how great it was.
I debated whether to tell her how I was confused because I thought maybe I misunderstood what the ENT said. But I decided that was the best opportunity. She checked the ent's notes and confirmed what he had said. I didn't misunderstand. So she was going to look into it.
I haven't seen the report and requested a copy but from what I was told the obstructive events are minimal if any. The first study she had 17 central episodes and this time 11. So yes it has improved but that still means that she stops breathing at least once an hour. I have seen her stop. And early this morning I heard her gasp and she kicked her feet hard. I am pretty sure she had to have stopped breathing for a significant amount of time to jump that bad. I am so glad for the improvement but to know she is indeed still stopping worries me. And I feel torn between the opinions of two doctors who I really respect.
