I am also waiting for results for my 2 year old daughter’s blood work from Tuesday. Julianna has never been higher than 4.3. Hopefully she will remain in this area. For the first 2 years of her life, I had such trama going through with the blood draws. Two hospitals and one clinic all had horrible attempts to find her veins and draw enough blood from her heel. I changed doctors because of it and now we see Dr. Bartley at the University of Irvine in California. He draws the blood himself right in the office. He is incredible at what he does! My daughter did not even flinch or cry this time and last. Dr. Bartley makes it painless. The blood draw weas half the battle for us.
Have a good day and hope for good results!
