Mrs Whiplash I like ur name I'm am very sorry to hear about your son though.. I mean this is one of the things that are not in your hands or in the doctors hands.. but every person that loses something gains something... but maybe if he has belief he will grow taller.. just keep giving him proteins and play sports especially basketball.. everyone has a disadvantage.. look at einstein he was a bloody dyslexic.. u look at his face say he cant mutiply one by one.. but hes the world's most known genius.. look at branson hes a dyslexic but he had belief in himself that he will be an entrepreneur .. and hes the best example of one.. look at ray blind artist... I mean when maybe u will see it as a disadvantage IF he does not grow taller, but if he is strong and he has belief WHICH he will because he will feel different... he will make a change in this world... your son has more chances than normal kids.. more chances to connect and touch people.. but dont listen to these doctors.. just keep him on a really good diet... let him learn why ur doing this why ur giving him good food.. dont spoil him.. let him be his own man... NEVER spoil him.. when he grows up, u will cry when u see this is the son u carried nine months and had a belief in even though he had a heart condition never lose faith in god! I hope your son all the best.. and I have faith that you will be happy with the outcome
