I Have to Brag

Clayton was SUCH a big boy today.  Today, for the FIRST TIME EVER, they took blood from him at the hosptial and he DID NOT CRY!!  He is usually hyperventilating and in meltdown mode during any stick, but today he handled it beautifully!!  Of course it helped that the nurse was extremely experienced and took plenty of time to find a vein (nearly impossible after all the damage his veins have endured).  When she finally did stick him, he tried to tune up, but we talked him out of it--instead he sat and made conversation with her and worried about Jackson misbehaving (and yes, he was misbehaving during the whole appointment!).  I am so, so PROUD of him for making it through a procedure without completely losing it!!  Now if we could just overcome x-rays, we'll be home free!!

Go Clayton! I'm sure as he's better able to understand WHY he needs them, he'll be better able to tolerate them.
