I guess that's good news, huh? Or is she like my husband and doesn't like animals? In that case, uh oh!

In all actuality, OSA is OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA. A sleep disorder where a person stops breathing for a period of time lasting from seconds to minutes. These abnormal periods where breathing ceases are called episodes of apnea. Apnea episodes cause a decrease in the amount of oxygen circulating in the blood and brain which causes the individual to wake up momentarily - just enough to start breathing again. This can occur up to 30 times per hour during the night. As a result, persons suffering from sleep apnea frequently complain of not feeling rested (even right when they've arisen from bed), daytime sleepiness, headaches, and a multitude of other complaints. OSA is known to increase a persons risk for heart disease, stroke, and congestive heart failure.

Bet you didn't expect that, didja? Can you believe I would turn down Obstructive Sleep Apnea? What an opportunity, right?

What I had intended to type was OWA - Orange Winged Amazon. The 'W' and 'S' are right next to each other on my (very unusual) keyboard. Sorry to cause such confusion! LOL!

Hijacked
Didn't mean to! Honest!

As a result, I'm moving all posts about Obstructive Sleep Apnea to the "Non-Parrot Discussions" Section...
Mainly because I think it's an important topic, but also because it has nothing to do with Moluccan (or Goffin) Cockatoos!

Seriously? It's taken three months? Holy cow! You're one patient man, far more so than I am. Good for you Dusty. That really is quite an accomplishment.

Jules, LOL! The original thread was from Aug - Dusty posted an update (above) that I was responding to Smile
True, Allie has me sleep deprived, but I'm really trying hard to stay "sorta" current with things! LOL!

I want mango! Seriously! He just seems like the perfect little ball of feathers.

Who was whistling? Einstein was in a cuddle sleep, and as soon as he heard it, his head cocked up, and he starting screaming jingle bells.
