We live in a house built before 1978. And, like most houses which are homes to 12 month old babies, the windowsills are dusty.

As such, Ronan needs his blood tested for lead.

They stuck him twice. Failed to get the vein both times. We gave up for the day.

His veins don't pop like mine do. He's chunky, so they aren't easy to find. Warming pads didn't help. The tourniquets didn't help. I'm sure the screaming til he was redder than a boiled lobster didn't help, either.

*sigh*

Anyone know a phlebotomist at UVA who can find a baby's vein on the first try? He's too old for a heelstick, so I guess they're going for the cubital vein or whatever is in the elbow.
