|7/5/11 - Ella on the scale. |
9.5 kg translates to 21 lbs!
After just three months on growth hormone Ella has gained 4 lbs and grown 2.4 inches!!! She now tips the scales at 21lbs and is 29 inches tall. Jason and I couldn't be more excited. We had a great check up with the endocrinologist. She feels her "catch-up" growth is right on target and at a pace that Ella is handling very well.

It's important to get an accurate measurement.
This is just the beginning. The doctor has told us that it will take about 6 months to see the full effects. We will have another check-up in October. We will also have the results of her blood work in about a week. The doctor will then be able to determine if her dosage stays the same. It's a careful balance, but so far the hormone replacement is working. Big cheers for Pnut!
