more. I took difficult child to the sleep study place to get the results today. He slept through most of it (again). End result he does have sleep apnea-fairly significant. During his deep sleep he stopped breathing an average of 9 times per hour and his oxygen level dropped to 84 (they like at 95 I think) twice. In adults that wouldn't be such a big deal but apparently they don't like to see it in kids at all. They gave us a c-pack (not sure if that's how it's spelled) mask to take home and get him acclimated to it. He is not to wear it yet at sleep. Then he has to go back for another night at the clinic where they will be sure they can get the right pressure of air for him. They also want us to take him back to the ENT that did his surgery removing his tonsils and adenoid to see if structurally they could do something surgically with his passage way-apparently it is very small. He also needs to start taking nasonex every night to maybe help some. That's the sleep study part. He has continued to be a pain and seems to be ramping up even more. We met with the in home people and decided we really need to start changing some things at home-his consequences are going to start being toughter. It is going to be pure misery at first but needs to be done. I think due to his violence that it has been hard to focus on some of the other issues (like was mentioned in my last thread) He has been moderately violent the past two days and earned "Stop the World" twice. Tonight he was so angry he dumped his night time medications down the drain! Now-how do you deal with that? We are thinking of taking away his wrestling tournament for this weekend. During the stop the world tonight he was driving us crazy. Since he can't play video games, tv, etc... he wanted to read some of his books. He only reads at about a first grade level. We said read by yourself or lay down and go to sleep. He followed us everywhere even though we told him it would extend his consequence because during "STW" he isn't supposed to be hanging around with us-he's just so dependent. Sorry this is long and I didn't even get to how absolutely down I'm feeling right now-just really sad and fed up-I'm so tired of dealing with difficult child right now-I love him but his level of disrespect has me worn down. I keep feeling like more and more is getting added and what is going to be the straw that breaks the camel's back? We'll keep on plugging along but I sure wish I could get a break away-husband needs one too but right now it just isn't going to happen. Sorry another long post-yikes!
