This is something I was hoping to be writing several years from now. Nothing major or unexpected, but something I was hoping to put off.

During my sleep study this last time, several things came to light.

1. I still didn't sleep long enough to get a thorough study result.

2. I have Restless Leg Syndrome. This is being treated with medication and is allowing me to sleep better.

3. My Oxygen Saturation dropped to 74% during deep sleep. There were many 5 minute periods where it was below 88% while I was asleep. This is a major problem and will be addressed with night time Oxygen as soon as they can set it up. The Neurologist believes that I might need Oxygen 24/7, and has suggested to my Pulmonologist that they test me for this.

I will be doing another sleep study once all of this is taken care of.

Just another bump to overcome in this journey....

Travel strong and stay on the trail my friends.

One step, and then another, will get you to where you want to be.
