Taking Luke up to Med City again this morning for labs. First attempt to get him up was met with crying and desatting. :( I'm so tired of torturing this kid.


I feel like a terrible mom: I told Luke when we got out of the car at Medical City that we were going to get an "ouch" (needle stick), but then we would go straight home and ride the tricycle. I was trying to prepare him so he wouldn't be so scared, but it made his anxiety way worse the whole time we were getting the order and checking in to the hospital. Then after it was over on the way home, he kept saying "No ouch!" and I told him, "No more ouches today! You're all done!"
Then we get all the way back home and are riding the tricycle when I get a call from Dr. Kao's office saying that something was wrong with the specimen, so we need to go back up and do a repeat. I'm just so tired of hurting him. I'm so emotional right now!


Back from trip #2 to Medical City. Luke's BUN is headed in the right direction, but still very high (80 when 30s is acceptable). We're keeping him off of diuretics and repeating labs at the end of the week.
