Round 2 - Bloodwork

So today was the day that Sean had to go back for his growth hormone retest. His doctor was supposed to have the test called in and ready, but somewhere, something got screwed up. SO, getting there at 7:45 to get in and out did me not good. After an hour of waiting, I finally asked what the heck was going on. Of course I got the, “oh, you should be next” answer. You have got to be kidding me. First, I have a child – the attention span is not long. He was bored, tired, frustrated (and of course Mommy didn’t bring anything to entertain him because I have never had to wait in the morning to get the lab work done). FINALLY we got back there and the lady was an idiot.

Sean has had blood work done twice, both times have gone just fine. This lady was digging, and digging, and digging. I was about two seconds away from punching her lights out. I mean, come on. He’s a toddler, he’s screaming, you are hurting him (and of course my nerves were shot). Let someone else give it a try who knows what they are doing. The other phlebotomist finally got it in and it was okay after that. My poor baby. So now, we wait. Hopefully we’ll have the results back in the next week/week and a half, so keep your fingers crossed and prayers a comin’. I would LOVE to be able to call the Children’s Hospital back and tell them that we have to CANCEL because he’s okay!!!

The good news today, yes there was some… we popped in for a quick weight check for Sean. On November 13, he weighed 19.6 lbs. Today, he weighed an even 21!!!!! YEP! You read that right. You know what this means? We’re FINALLY legal with the car seat!!!!
