Growing (Sleep Neurologist Update)


Nolan had an appointment with the sleep neurologist today. It was all good news!

Age: 4 years, 3 months

Average C-Pap Compliance: 5 Hours/night

Height: 40"

Weight: 33 pounds!

The little guy is refluxes constantly, but we have managed to keep his weight up by letting him snack incessantly (he eats a tiny amount all day long). The C-Pap is increasing the quality and duration of sleep, which allows for the production of growth hormone. We should see continued weight and height increases as he continues with the therapy. We don't have to return to the sleep neuro for another three months.

I love these types of appointments!
