Blood work

Jacob had a CBC blood test re-done this week. We used the Emla numbing cream which worked great! Thanks Mom and Kimmy for telling us about this. I just don't understand why the doctors don't give it to all babies?! Why cause them pain if you don't have to? Dr. Wood called with the results yesterday and his hemoglobin was totally normal at 12.1 and his neutraphil count had improved a bit (up 214 points to 655). He still has a ways to go, low normal is 1200, but at least it's heading in the right direction. The doctor was happy with it and so are we. We will have it redone in 2-3 months.
