Sleep Study Results

We finally got the results of the sleep study... Jacob's sats are within normal limits while sleeping without oxygen. Yay! They monitored for many other things while Jacob was sleeping, like brain activity, respiration, breathing patterns, snoring, body movement, heart rate, etc. There were over 30 different probes and wires attached to him. Poor Guy. It was a little traumatic...but the results are all normal. Awesome!

So...this means that we are going to trial him off the oxygen completely, even at night, and see how he does. So we could use prayers for the next few weeks that Jacob stays strong, breathes easy, and that his sats stay up. Then on May 21st, Jacob will get an ECHO to see if things still look normal. We still have the sat monitor and oxygen if we need it, but let's hope this is the end of the oxygen for good!!!! (it's packed away in another room already)

Here's a picture of Jacob the morning after the sleep study. He was so mad when probes were being placed and when woken up at 5:30 in the morning, but was especially mad when the probes were being removed. It was traumatic to say the least.

Thanks for your prayers and well wishes. Jacob is such a blessing and miracle. It's amazing to be able to witness God at work through him. We're honored that God would allow us to be his parents. Have a great day!
