Good News!

We had Alex' quarterly blood work and check up the other day and he's doing GREAT!

He's gained 11.1 lbs and grew an inch in the last quarter - which means he's gained over 26 lbs since March! I can't get over the change in him.

His inflammation markers were all NORMAL (haven't said that in a while!) the only issues is his iron and vitamin D levels are low - so he's on supplements again.

I'm SO excited for him. I'm going to try and post a picture of him from last year hockey season to this year - the difference is PHENOMENAL! When I got the picture for this year I almost fell over...

So grateful for all the wonderful information and loving support this group provides (even when I'm not responding to things - you do! Thanks!!)

Heart-filled thanks!!! :banana:
