The Endocrinologist

Today I took sweet Gates to the Endocrinologist. It looks like everything is pretty normal. The pediatrician had measured him in her office and thought he was way below the average for his age. However, when the endo measured him with her much more accurate device she found that he was in the 10th percentile which is not as bad as we had thought. So....she does still want to see him back in six months and she did want me to have a couple more tests run to rule out a couple of things that she thought were unlikely. She used an x-ray of his hand and some calculations based on Josh and I's heights and found that he will be around 5'9". Which is how tall Josh is. So....needless to say. It was pretty uneventful and we feel very comfortable with this diagnosis. Thank you Lord for good news today and for the sweetest, funiest little boy I have ever met.
