Your blog always makes me smile. Yay, Jace! -a reader in Connecticut


Your blog always makes me smile, too, but I usually have tears in my eyes as well. Your journey as a mother and daughter is an inspiration to me. :) I'm so glad to hear that Jace is responding so well to his treatments. That's awesome!


Heck, I'm 44 and take HGH. Sadly, I did not reach 7 feet tall as I'd hoped when I began taking it 2+ years ago...but man, I feel SO much better than I did beforehand!

It's awesome you've got a doc that will prescribe it (and even better if insurance will pay for it...military insurance will now no longer pay for idiopathic short stature. Sheesh.) I hope your son gets what he needs & wants from it--the shots get tiring after a while, but when you're seeing a positive effect, it makes it easier to keep doing.


Well, so far the insurance (Aetna) is unwilling to pay for it. But, that won't stop us from using this costly treatment to improve Jace's life.


If you want him to get some growth hormone just give him lots of milk...god knows there is enough in there.

rBGH is your friend...


You said your son is 10? Can I ask how tall he is now? I'm not venting or anything else, I am just curious. My son who is now 14 was barely five feet tall at ten. From the picture (I'm assuming recent) he looks about the same. Anyway, I wanted to give you something to think about...Four years later, my son is now five foot nine and still growing. Things just take time. Just wanted to give you some support.


It's neat to see your dad be there for your son... a wonderful story and memory for you all.


Yay for Grandpa!

My son was still 5'9" tall when he graduated High School. Voice hadn't changed, really didn't need to shave... still doesn't (but don't tell him I told you. He looked 14 years old when he completed High School at 17 years old! Now I know 5'9" is not short by most standards, but in this house it IS, but more odd was all the rest of his slow development. (Still waiting for the brain to have a turn - heh). Now he is almost 19, 6'3" and his voice has finally changed. He still looks very young, but eventually he'll catch up to everyone. Most of his friends developed around 12-13, and he didn't start until after he was 18. It was really hard for him, so I understand how your son might feel.


That's such a sweet picture!


You're right. It's hard to think of anything more to ask for than those blessings.

I think that is a great picture. Glad that things are working for Jace. The post before this one really made me cry. I hope that you are doing okay. Hugs,love and prayers.


What a great grandfather! He sounds like one in a million to make this day a priority. Good luck with the HGH, I've heard good things.
