Palmer's Testing

We went to LeBonheur, the children's hospital here in Memphis for Palmer's testing. It was stimulus testing to test her growth hormone levels. We were there for about 3 to 4 hours. She got an IV in her little hand. They drew blood from the IV several times and put medincine in through the IV several times. She also had to get a shot of medicine in her arm. She did really good considering her age. The worst part was that Palmer couldn't eat or drink anything after midnight. She cried this morning for her milk, it was so sad. After the test, they gave her some apple juice and graham crackers. I've never seen her leap toward her juice so fast!! She was sooo thirsty and hungry. We won't find out any results for about 2 to 3 weeks. Here are a few pictures from our morning at LeBonheur:
