Always buy your kid
ice cream after he has to
have blood work done.
I know, I know...food does not equal love...at least it shouldn't. But, my boy is so limited in what he can eat and today we began what may prove to be a battery of tests and doctor appointments to try to determine the causes. This is the child who, a few months ago, would have run screaming or curled up under the counter in the hospital lab at the first sign of anxiety. Instead, today he sat in the chair and sobbed quietly while they drew five LARGE vials of blood. Then...he asked for ice cream. How could I deny him?
Wish us luck in the coming weeks...he has a lot coming his way.
