So today was Colemans first Groweth hormones shot. Nutrapin is the company we use, they sent a very nice nurse out today to show us how to use the needles and shots and suprizingly it was easy. Coleman did so good, he cried a little but had no tears. Once he recieved his kisses he was fine, hershey kisses that is. I am a little nervous keeping track of everything but not giving the shot. Pray that God gives me the capability to comprehend the details and the patience with myself to do this every night. God has been so faithful, we know He is faithful wether CoCo grows or not, whether or not we got the drug or not. Im excited to start this process!!

So we have been waiting and praying for the groweth Hormones for over a year and now they are sitting in my refrigerator. I have tried to tell CoCo they the shot will help him grow and he says "I not wanna grow" He just doesn't want a shot. We have to be professionally trained by a nurse to administer the groweth hormone shots so again were waiting. Im a little nervous about all of the responsibility but Im ready to give Coleman a better chance at life. Its funny how simple life is and how complicated. I know my Nana prayed for years for this decision about what was the best for CoCo.

We are in the process of trying to get Coleman on growth hormone therapy. I have been to see our geneticist, Dr.Harold Chen at LSU medical Center in Shreveport, LA. Trying to get involved in a medical trial is confusing and difficult but financially we can not do this otherwise. If anyone has been through growth hormone therapy that has hypochondroplasia please contact me. Or if you are in a drug company that can help Coleman and our family know the right thing to do.

Hi, my name is Kristen. I have two beautiful boys, my youngest being the reason I'm creating this blog. He was diagnosed with something called Hypochondraplasia a little after he turned one. I am having trouble finding out information on his specific condition and was also looking to connect with others who have hypocondraplasia or are a parent to someone who has this. I would love any feed back or ideas. Thank you
