Little T is normal in some ways

We had a normal blood test on Tuesday, even including some extra tests for hormones like growth hormone, thyroid, tsh and anything that else would point to endocrinological reasons for his poor growth.

His hemo doctor said that his blood counts have been normal for several months now, so next visit she won't need to draw blood. Woot!

We took him off all steroids on Tuesday and aspirin today. Now he's just on Prilosec.

He gained a little weight up to 10.46kg or 23lb 1 oz. Still no height growth. In fact he supposedly shrank down to 75.8cm, but he wouldn't stand too well. But hey, he's walking now so he gets to stand on the big boy scale now and use the standing height measurement thing.

He also got tested for allergies today and has no discernable allergies. Hooray!

He's getting tested for Celiac disease and his stool will be tested for absorption to see if he has a problem absorbing nutrients.

He does seem to be eating a little more since we took him off the tiny dose of steroids he was on.

Oog, I hope he doesn't have celiac, but if he does, rosecolette can tell you all sorts of helpful and useful stuff!

I'm hoping that, just as he's finally caught up with walking, he's about ready to catch up with his growing. ::crosses fingers::

Welcome! So sorry you're dealing with KMS! I should mention that of the two people that I've met with kids who have KMS my son's is by far the most severe
