They told me that people usually prefer for them to do it at the clinic, and from what you said, it must be true that some people do. It would just be a lot more convenient for us to do it at home (or even the pediatricians office). I haven’t asked for another nurse to try b/c she is the Dr’s only nurse (each Dr has their own nurse) and I don’t want to say anything to make them mad at me. I don’t want to hurt the nurses feelings, I just don’t want her to tourture my daughter anymore! I don’t know, maybe it really is THAT hard to get her blood…agh…I’m totally stressed out about this!
