Brief Update

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!

Hi Leah!

Happened upon your blog and read through all the posts. It's really awesome that both Nolan and Matt have you to be a fierce advocate for them.

Great news on the speedy appointment!

Best,

Great news! Sorry we missed you this afternoon, but I totally understand about the kids being in the car too much. They need a break.

I'm so glad for you guys. It sounds like y'all do a lot of driving, this is a good break! I was disgusted at the un-helpfulness of the neurologist in the last post. Who knew you would need two neurologists!?! Sometimes the medical field drives me nuts! Way to stick to your guns and get it all done.
