I just realized I haven't blogged about all the new developments in Skyler's world.  She has been diagnosed with Hypothyroidism.  We were absolutely shocked by this diagnosis as it does mean a life long treatment of medication.  She has started on Synthroid and her doctors will be working to perfect the dosage level that she needs to get her hormones on track.  She will be getting her blood drawn a lot in the next few months :-(.

The doctors are also going to measure her bone age by having an x-ray taken of her wrist.  They have noticed that she is the size of a 6 year old and in the 10th percentile for height.  This is most likely cause by her thyroid not performing properly.  We are unsure as of yet how they will treat this stunted growth or what that means for Skyler long term.

She has an appointment with an Endocrinologist in December so we should learn a lot more then.

Please keep her and us in your prayers as we work to get her healthy and strong.
