We had another appointment with Ian's Endocrinologist this morning. Three months ago when we were there it was not a good appointment. Ian hadn't grown at all at that appointment. Today however he gained 2 pounds and grew just under 1 inch. I couldn't believe it, and I couldn't be happier.
Now Ian is back up to the 3rd percentile in height which is still not good but at least he is back on the charts. At this point I will take any amount of growth small or big. If Ian can maintain the growth rate of the past three months the rest of this year we may actually be out of the woods. So for the next six months we just have to make sure Ian eats a good protein diet and gets lots of sleep and lots of exercise. The exercise and protein diet part will be easy but the sleeping thing may be a little more difficult. :)
To celebrate Ian's growth and his good behavior at the doctors Dave and I took Ian to Bob Evans for a great breakfast. Dave and I got the Homestead which is a little of everything eggs, home fries, sausage, and biscuits and gravy. Ian picked the Lil Farmers Breakfast which had eggs, sausage, home fries, and pancakes and he ate all most all of it.
Now the three of us are sitting in the living room relaxing and watching it rain outside. Something tells me this will be a very good day!
