No Anemia

Last month when Ethan got his immunization the doctor tried to check him for anemia. I think that I mentioned in a previous post that she wasn't able to find a blood vessel, so she said that she would try at his 4 month check-up. I can see why it would be difficult. He has quite a bit of fat to keep those blood vessels hidden. :-) So, last week we took him to the doctor for another try. Here is a picture of him all bandaged up from where they put some kind of cream on him so it wouldn't hurt so badly. Though he wasn't smiling once they started poking him with a needle. They put this cream on 4 different places and then put bandages around them. They still couldn't find a blood vessel in his arm, but they did succeed with finding a capillary in his heel. The results came back that he doesn't have anemia anymore, so we are thankful for that good news.
