Lawson had his Endocrinologist appointment today and it went really well. The doctor was shocked and pleased with his growth. He is growing at rate of 100% as opposed to 2%, as reported before we started his growth hormone shots. Lawson has grown 3 inches since February. WOW!! The doctor checked his GH dosage and said it is still SO low that he is not going to adjust it. He is exceeding expectations. So we are sticking to the normal schedule, one shot before bed 6 nights a week.
As far as his Diabetes Insipidus is concerned, all of his bloodwork came back in the normal range. He seems to be doing well with his current doasge each day and no adjustments were made. He takes a Desmopression pill in the morning, at lunch and then we give him the liquid specila dilution at night (intranasally) so that it last him all through the night. He is doing great.
Lawson was a champ when it came to drawing his lab. He did cry and fight it a little but it quickly passed. It does get more difficult the older he gets. He seems to know what is coming well before they stick him. He actually starts asking on the way there, "mommy, are they going to stick me?" I hate that he has to go through it every 6 mths but it is better than what it was at the beginning.....once or twice a week.
Praise the Lord for a good checkup:)!
