lucy-bug

Bless Lucy's heart.
Besides an all-out cry fest while they were
drawing her blood,
she did great.

And bless those wonderful gals who work in
the lab at our doctor's office!
They are amazingly talented in getting an itty bitty girl's
vein in one quick prick.
And,
the tech doing it told Lucy,
"Honey, if it makes you feel better to cry, then
go ahead. It's totally fine with me, darlin'."

And cry she did...more of a wale, actually.

The entire office heard her.
All the girls at the front desk showered her with
stickers and suckers as we were leaving.

Funny, no one has ever offered me a thing when I was
brave getting my blood drawn.

Perhaps I'll whip up some tears next time.

Anyway,
to further her rewards, the biggest softy in our house
bought her a new doctor's kit.

So now Lucy is equipped with a broad range of medical
supplies and an arsenal of new procedures that
she's recently learned.

And just so you know,
your computer mouse gives a fairly decent
ultrasound.
*Perhaps that's a glimpse into our future health care*

We'll get the results of Lucy's test later today.

Hahahah...Dr. Lucy. LOVE it! I bet the dog has had a thorough examination!

Hope the results come quickly and are just what you need to hear.

Oh I wish I could give her a big hug! Tell her she was a good girl, she was very brave, and I am very proud of her!

Praying, praying, praying!

Good Job Lucy! (kinda sorta!)

Has she tried to draw you blood with one of those Dr Kits?

Praying that everything is a-okay!

So glad the nurses were able to get her draw done in one try - it took them 4 for my poor Kat. And Dr. Lucy - why do I sense a theme for a whole new round of blog titles? Too much fun!

Aww. Good job in surviving it Lucy. It is pretty scary seeing all those needles. Every time I donate I still have to look away.

And I am trying to figure out which is the BIGGEST softy when it comes to her; her daddy or her older brother. lol.

Praying for the best solutions for her.

Tell the dog to run if she comes w/ a thermometer.
Y'know if we cry when they take blood they'd probably just tell us to "stop it"
