    We re-tested Jake's partial adrenal insufficiency. The test results I got today indicate that it's normal. I asked like 8 times if they were sure, I asked if he should have it re-tested they said no...I am SO HAPPY about this I called everybody. Then the doubt started creeping in, could they be wrong?

    I'm going to make some more calls tomorrow...just to be sure:D

    For those that don't know...Partial adrenal insufficiency means that something as simple as a broken arm (Any trauma) is an emergency, we had to carry around a rescue shot for just in case. Is was supposed to have the shot within 10 minutes of any trauma.

    This is amazing, Jake is healthy again:D

    Oh and he hasn't been on Growth hormones since Feb. He is now 6'1 and 1/2. I wonder if the growth hormones could have caused it temporarily?

    Awesome, Awesome news Heather! I'm so happy for your family!

    If you do find out it was caused by the growth hormones, please let me know. I have a friend who has a son that is going on them and I can let her know about the possibility and that it resolved itself in your case.

    That is great to hear! Did the doctor ever hint it might be transient?

    Congrats! I can totally understand why you would be in disbelief....to just say the tests are "normal" after everything...but miracles do happen!

    Yes, she had said "Sometimes it gets worse, sometimes it goes away, but most of the time it stays the same..."

    This is REALLY great news Heather! I am so happy to hear this!

    During the time that Jake was diagnosed with an adrenal insufficiency, was he under tremendous stress? Has the stress lessened to the degree where his adrenals could heal?

    Will you still carry the shot around just in case or does this news mean that, even in a time of severe stress, his body will be able to kick in?

    I am really happy for you and your son, one burden lifted :)
