When I took Goldie for her 2 year check-up, I made sure to get a script for her bloodwork. I asked for thyroid and CBC. We go to the Children's Hospital satellite because they are the only people I trust to stick my baby. Her arms are very chubby and they have to go by FEEL because you can't SEE the vein. Well, Goldie was awesome, but it took a loooong time to fill the tubes. I had a bad feeling about that. The next week I called to get the results and they told me her blood had clotted before it got to the lab,so we have to do it all over again. I hate checking something off my to-do list only to have it added back on. And they billed our insurance for it.
Instead of going back to the ped. for another script, I decided to wait until next week when we go the DS clinic and have them write up the order. I'm going to ask them to add the Celiac panel and zinc. Anything else? What do you check you kid's for?
