Hangin' out with Cousin Mark

My sister's family are down in Melbourne for a visit. Spent the day yesterday shopping for some clothes for her. Sheena was lugged around a bit. Feel bad sometimes if she is in the buggy or the car for too long, as it certainly doesn't help her muscle tone. Nevermind, she had a few baby-cise sessions, and was very lively in the evening.

Today, I finally took her into the Childrens for a blood test. It was a disaster. We were both crying by the end of it. Sheena was crying so much she was choking. She is alright now, but at the time it was horrible. The senior guy couldn't find any veins, and they had to resort to a heel prick that they'd usually only do on a younger baby. She now has 4 band-aids. 2 on her fingers, 1 on her arm, and 1 on her heel.

Oh poor peanut :( We went through that too, Nathaniel's veins would move around and they could never get it, sometimes it took 6 nurses to hold him down :( Can be very upsetting for you and baby... She is soooooooooooooooooooooooooo adorable tho :) and a first tooth, is exciting :) wooohooo :)

Ouch, poor little thing. I really dislike labwork. Miss E's blood hemolyzes (sp?) very quickly and her veins roll.

Sending Sheena hugs and kisses from Miss E.

I hope the results of the test are good and that you don't have anything additional to deal with.

what a cute picture!

sorry about the blood draw experience - it's like that with Kayla too...2 to hold her down and 1 to get the vein!

Oh, poor Sheena! I fell so bad for the little ones when they need bloodwork done. Joey is due for some, and I keep putting it off so his little hands have more time to heal from the IVs from his surgery last week.
