What do you see when you look at the picture above?
A. A little over 4 inches
B. Almost 11 centimeters
C. The unbelievable amount of growth Cayden has experienced in just
6 short months
well the answer is……
D. ALL OF THE ABOVE!!!!!!!!!!
Cayden had a six month checkup with the endocrinologist today.
The endocrinologist is thrilled beyond words at the progress he has made. His growth is well beyond expected growth for a year and we are only half way through the year.
As of today Cayden also achieved another important milestone. Height (and weight) in childhood and adolescence are plotted on official growth charts. Cayden has never been on any chart. We have aspired to be on a chart, we have gazed longingly at a chart, we may have even uttered a few not so nice words at a chart. Today his height now officially puts him at the 3% line of the growth chart!!!!!
That means that he is now TALLER than 3% of his peers. Not much, you say? Well, I say, we’ll take it!
Cayden is doing so well that the doctor even decided to increase his dose of growth hormone slightly. So take a look at my son because…..
next time you see him, you may not recognize him.
