My wife came to an appointment and came home with two home tests, and we strapped them on and brought them back and had the interview, and mine peaked as a number of apnea events, and suggestion was that I go have a sleep study. And I did, and it turns out that I have an odder affliction of apnea called “central apnea” and not the restricted apnea. And that’s really where Dr. Weddell’s would’ve stepped in with a mouth plants. And that really wouldn’t help me, I needed a CPAP machine, and I’ve been on it for about five years now, but I kid with Dr. Weddell many times that he saved my life, and it’s true in every sense. I would’ve never guessed that that would’ve come out of a dental appointment.
It was quite a coincidence that he was able to have this available, and that the home study actually worked, because it mimicked exactly what my sleep study eventually said, as well, and that … Yep, I stopped breathing many times during the evening, and you don’t know as an afflicted person that that’s happening. And luckily enough, my wife had heard many events that I just stopped breathing, and I’m gasping, and I have other heart issues that don’t really help. And you compile that with the stress on the heart from sleep apnea, and you’ve got a recipe for disaster. So I’m a fan. He gets a birthday card every year.
