The Nurse called with the Kiddo's test results. They tested several different areas/levels and she said if any ONE of them came back lower then 10 then they generally give growth hormone shots. The Kiddo's HIGHEST level was 2.15!!

So we will be giving him shots. Our insurance wont cover the brand I was hoping to get*, so we will be giving him Norditropin**. Sometime this week their representative or the case manager will be calling us and we should be started by the end of next week. The Nurse will be doing an at home visit to show us how to do things and answer any questions we have. All I know for sure for now is that the Kiddo will continue to get shots, every night just before bed, until he is 16 or 17 years old.

I'm excited that he will finally be growing. A little worried about having to give shots. And a little amused that we will have to buy new clothing as often as most other parents do (because he will actually outgrow them).

* I wanted saizen because of the injector style, which is a hidden needle vs pen shaped.

**for those of you who like to do your own research I hyperlinked to the main website for this type of medication.
