Newborn screen

At two weeks old, Abe had his checkup at the Dr. and then we were sent to the hospital to have a blood test done to check for several rare diseases. It was quite an ordeal. We had to go patient registration, fill out paperwork, even get one of those hospital bracelets before being sent to the lab. Then more paperwork and waiting. Then a lady came whose job it is to stick unsuspecting babies in the foot and squeeze blood out. I don't know how she can live with herself.

She was, in all likelihood, a Phlebotomist. As soon as I finish my Phlebotomy class and finish sticking my 50 patients, I'll let you know how she can live with herself.

See you soon
