Just adding my welcome as well, so sorry you have to be here.

On a hopeful note, many people who have CD in their teens, have delayed growth spurts ( I did, didn't start getting my real height unti nearly 20 years old) so he may actually grow considerably in the future, and not be so small & skinny. Here is to hoping that is true..
