>Tomorrow, I am expecting my first shipment of growth hormone to arrive for The Comedian Son. This has been a long awaited event. It took 4 pediatricians before one said, “you might be right, your son is really small.” Below are the emotions I am feeling about the entire thing … hopefully I will reach 13.
1. anxious – that we see results soon
2. excited – that a solution may be at hand
3. thrilled – that the feelings of inferiority that my son has may be aleviated
4. scared – that I will do something wrong
5. frustrated – that it took so long to get doctors to listen to me
6. elated – that the insurance is paying for it
7. interested – in learning a new albeit weird skill
8. glad – that the name calling and teasing about size may soon stop
9. amused – that he said he’d be just like his grandparent that takes insulin shots daily
10. squeamish – that I have to administer these shots
11. vigilant – in the amount of instructions I have to absorb
12. curious – as to how many of you may know someone who has had to take growth hormone shots?
13. sad & proud that my sweet little boy has to endure the discomfort of shots daily until he is 18 but that he has a great big brave attitude towards it
