So I guess I will talk to them again about it when we go at the end of the month. I’m starting to think it’s a money thing because if we do it ourselfs, they can’t charge us out the rear for the doctor’s visit. Even if they still are adament about not letting us do it, I’m going to see if they will let us take her to our pediatrician and let them do it. They already said they would, and it’s a much easier drive (plus I’m hoping they’re better at drawing blood!). I’ll keep you guys posted. Thanks for the info on what needles to use if they do let us do it at home! n–Kristi
