Wyndham's happy news!

She is all smiles today and we're grinning with her! Wyndham had a doctor appointment with her endocrinologist today and he told her {us} that she can STOP taking her daily growth hormone shot for at least a month! From the time Wyndham turned two years old she has been given an injection by myself or Chip every single night. Until tonight! We are so happy to be given this news and also, it means possibly her body is beginning to make low levels of hormone all on its own. We'll have to wait and see, but in the meantime, we won't miss a single shot. I suspect she won't miss them either!
I snapped a few pictures of her just minutes ago as I talked about how happy I am for her to not have to get poked at nighttime now. I think she understood exactly what I was saying. It's not often that she gets such great news, so of course, I am more than happy to share it with all of you! Our year seems to be off to a good start. And we're all soaking it in. It's the little stuff that is really big stuff sometimes and this is one of those times. Hooray for Wyndham!!

I was so touched by your story about the accident, losing Teagan, the struggles Wyndham has had to endure, and the awesome strength, courage, and faith of you and your husband.
