I have been so rubbish at blogging lately, let me fill you in as to why.
We were rushed from our house to the Emergency Department with Oscar because he stopped breathing completely. It was the scariest thing that’s ever happened to me. My anxiety was through the roof and I honestly honestly thought I was going to lose my little boy.
Luckily, he started breathing again and was so smiley and his normal self which confused me completely, it happened a few more times when we were in the hospital and since then Oscar has been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea!
I’ve never really heard of this before and let me tell you, if you think you get no sleep with a new born, try having one who spontaneously stops breathing in his sleep, it will mean when he’s sleeping and you should be sleeping you’re instead sat staring at him.
Everything terrifies me now, he will do it when he’s having his bottles, if someone is smoking near us, he has panic attacks, he goes purple. It’s horrible.
We’re currently waiting for an appointment to see the specialist but I just ask that you be a bit patient with us for a while because he has to come first!
If anyone has an experience with sleep apnea I would REALLY appreciate some advice!
