New test date

Emma will be having the test done at Levine Childrens Hospital on August 13th. They have more specialized equipment to help locate a good vein for the IV so we're hopeful she won't endure multiple sticks like yesterday. I won't follow up with the dr for the results until the 24th, but I'll be sure to post what they find.
Funny thing about yesterday though was that they measured her before the test. Dave said they had her at 46 inches tall. If that is truly the accurate measurement then I don't think we'll have anything to worry about. The whole reason for this test was because at Emma's last check-up she was 45 1/4 inches tall, which dropped her down to the -2% for height. The dr. said since her growth had stalled again we should really do this test. They measured her twice that day to make sure it was accurate. So a month later she's 46 inches? If she grew 3/4 of an inch in a month we'll have worried for nothing. But, at least we'll know for sure. I'm guessing they either measured her w/shoes on or rounded since it wasn't an official check. But time will tell.

Thanks for keeping Emma in your prayers. She recovered quite quickly yesterday and had a normal day.
