The shots are here

Palmer's medication has arrived, she's taking Increlex. The nurse came to train me on how to give her the shots. She is getting two injections a day. We have to rotate the injection site, so she doesn't get sore or build scar tissue. She gets the shots in her leg, arm, stomach, and bottom. Palmer is handling it pretty well. She know what's coming when she sees the shot and usually tries to run. She just fuses for a second when she gets the shot and is over it pretty much immediately. The needle is really small. I've adjusted pretty well too, it's just part of our day now. We go back to the endocrinologist in August for a check up to see how much she has grown. Here are a few pictures to see what we're dealing with and of course one cute one of Palmer playing:
