Thank-you for your helpful replies. Both full sibs re-tested normal. The heel sticks are hardest on her mom, even though I have done all but one. She usually ‘helps’ with them though. Gabriella is now off daily heel sticks, drew wed and now not again until monday. Blood levels have been in the 4’s since the third draw. So far so good. Other than that, she is a great baby, very cuddly.
