confused

Remember I took Sam for tests couple of weeks ago? And they were testing to see if he was growth hormone deficient or not.  Well they said they would let me know within a week if anything was abnormal - a week went by so I was relieved - everything must be ok!

Well today the hospital phoned me and said - Sam needs to come in for more tests on 4th April and I was like but why?? She said I really dont know Im just the administrator - oh and he also needs an MRI scan - well I was confused as if he was ok surely he wouldnt need anymore tests - anyway she said she would get the Doctor to ring me to explain.

So when I was walking through Debenhams on way to meet friend for coffee this afternoon my phone rings! What a time for the Doctor to ring - not that he knew!  Anyway, he explained to me that Sam's tests were abnormal and that he is Growth Hormone Deficient and there is something wrong with another hormone thats why they need to do more tests as they are not 100 per cent sure what - he did explain to me about the other hormone but I really didnt take it all in.  So prior to 4th April (tests) we need to go see the consultant so he can explain to me in more detail - also they will start him on growth hormone. So lots of trips for us to London coming up. Im not worried about Sam as I know he will be ok - I do hope he grows well though through his teenage years - its so important for kids of that age to grow - its like a really big thing for them.  My Joe was sorted out at age 3 so he wont have any problems going through teens - infact Joe is doing really well on his growth hormone - Sam will only just be starting so he might lapse behind his friends in the growing stakes.  At least he is not ill - he is not disabled or really sick - he has deficiencies and they can be replaced! Its just all the hassle he has got to go through - bless him.

Sorry just had to get that off my chest.

Half way through Debenhams on your way to meet a friend for coffee is not the ideal time for a call like that, no wonder you didn't take it all in m'dear.  I'm so sorry your Sam has to go through all of this, bless his heart.  At least now he will get the growth hormones that he needs.

It must be such a worry for you Laine. I know you said the boys aren`t ill but when it`s your own it must be hard to see them go through this. Like you say, the teenage years are so important to them. I hope all goes well on April 4th.Love

Love Sandra xxxx
