Yearly Endocrinology Appointment

Today Caroline had her yearly endocrinology appointment.  She is 33.5 inches (18% on regular charts and 95% on Turner syndrome chart) and 23 pounds (5%).  She is declining in height which was predicted once she hit 2 years old.  The endo predicts that she will be 5'0" without growth hormones, but that is based on just my height and Rodney's height.  He did mention that she will be VERY short for our family, but super short for the population.  If she doesn't drop drastically in height during this year, I think we might hold off on GH until she is older, but that is something we will have to wait and discuss at each yearly appointment.

Rodney got Caroline this handy stepping stool for her to use around the house.  I think she knows it is hers because she carries it everywhere.
