First Day of School and HGH Update

Blake and Derek started 3rd grade yesterday. They were so excited to get back to school (I guess they've had enough of me!). They had a great day and they love their new teacher. I can't believe how fast they're growing up and how fast the summer flew by. Its always so bitter sweet for me to send them back to school but I will say that I'm very proud that I got them through the summer without killing each other. Not even an ER visit! Amazing! Those of you who didn't spend any time with us this summer may think I'm joking. I'm not.

We got some exciting news on Monday about Brandon and Katelyn's growth. They have both reached the 33rd percentile for height. Since they started taking growth hormones in April 2008 they have made up a lot of ground. It took them more than a year to even be on the growth chart. So the good news is we can be done with these nightly injections as soon as we use up the medication we have. I can't tell you what a relief that is! They are so good about them but it definitely complicates our bedtime routine and, well, just sucks. The doctor expects them to drop down on the charts a bit but she says she rarely has to restart and that she won't even consider restarting until a year from now. Let's hope they just grow on their own now!
