I don’t think there is a Phenex 3, but I’m not sure I could be wrong. I know my little sister (who is 8) is still on Phenex 2. That is really good to hear that everyone at your work is helpful, it probably helps alot. My mom always told me when I was first born she wasn’t able to do my blood on her own so my dad had to (even though he used to hate blood). He always had to figure out when he would do it though because he was just getting out of college when I was born.
He probably will be protective of her, but there’s nothing wrong with that right ? I know from experience, my brother is about 17 months older then me (he turned 17 in Jan) and even now that I’m 15 he’s still very protective of me about both my diet and life in general.
