I called the pediatrician's office to get a referral to the neurologist who deals with central apnea. After a few conversations with the office staff and nurse, I was told they would try to get an appointment for Nolan. There is usually a wait of about 2 weeks between the referral and the actual appointment date, because of scheduling issues.
They called back a few minutes later, and said they had an appointment... for this Thursday! Talk about getting in quickly!
This neurologist (who writes the sleep study reports and can treat the central apnea) also has an office in Dunkirk- only 45 minutes from our house.
With an appointment scheduled so quickly, and so close to our home, I am walking on air!
Hopefully this appointment will yield some answers to our questions!
