The result of Muja second sleep study.

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

Sometime last month Muja and me went to PMH for a sleep study. Alhamdulillah last Tuesday we get the result. From the study we knew that Muja had a problem with her sleeping because she struggle with her breathing. The study showed a low oxygen level in her sleeping. Basically, she has difficult breathing so her sleep was disturbed.

The doctor, at Respiratory Department, left me with two options. One to remove her tonsil and two to use mask. Why remove the tonsil? According to the doctor, it block the airways during sleeping. That why she has loud irregular snoring when sleeping because she has to breath deep. If the tonsil is remove, she might still have to use mask if removing it does not improve her breathing.

I told the doctor that her father would not be supportive with any surgery, so I would go for mask for now. So, Insha Allah we will be waiting for our appointment sometime in two week time to go for the mask. It was so silly of me for not asking her detail about the mask as I thought that it is going to be an oxygen mask using a CPAP (Continuous Positive airway pressure) Machine.

Alhamdulillah, at least we know what causing Muja lack of sleep. Masha Allah, on the last post I mention how her sleeping has improved. Alhamdulillah, so far she is going to sleep around 10 pm and waking up around 8 am. Some days she wakes up early. She still wakes up a few times at night and I find that she has trouble going back to sleep because of her breathing. Insha Allah we can see more improvement after using a mask.
