Growth Tests are Back

Hi all!  I hope everyone had a great weekend.

Caleb's growth tests have come back.  They did an xray and hormone tests to check his growth levels because kiddos with one of the syndromes he has do have growth problems.  Caleb's bone age, from his x ray showed an age of 7 and he is 6.  So this bone age looked good.  However, his IgF, growth hormone, was on the low side.  With that being said they do not want to diagnose him yet as having a growth problem.  Caleb is a very picky eater and we have always given him 1% milk.  The doctors want us to try to increase Caleb's caloric intake to see if he can gain weight.  If he can, no growth deficiency.  If not, then he may need the daily hormone injections to help him grow.  So we have changed his milk intake from 1% to vitamin D milk and if need be will start supplementing with Ensure or Carnation, but we just don't want the Ensure or Carnation to take away his hunger.  So we will watch his weight closely and see how it goes. 

The immune and heart tests are still pending.

God Bless you all!!

God Bless Caleb and Camryn!!
