Why I'm glad today is over.
Got through the blood tests this morning and hopefully we won't have to repeat these any time soon. No results yet from the tests taken earlier in the week - which is frustrating, but hopefully by Monday we can rule out some possible things.
Jordan cried as expected during the time of the blood draw. He clutched his stuffed cow, Mr. Moo, and had to be restrained by both Jeff and I. It was not pretty to watch, but the technician was quick and efficient, which is the best we can ask for. There have been times when the person can't get a vein, or takes a really long time prepping him, or has to stick him multiple times to get a sample. J was spared that today.
In a not so funny moment before the blood draw even began, we ran into a social worker in the hallway at the hospital. She smiled at Jordan and tried to say hi, and he began shouting "All Done! All Done!" This kid is going to have nightmares for awhile, I'm guessing.
At any rate, it's over, and he seems to be back to his old self for the most part. Thanks for all the well-wishes, everyone. It's encouraging to know how many friends Jordan has rooting for him.
