The Best Present!
Will has been having a lot of petechiae- small broken blood vessels under the skin, and these are always a worry in children. Dr Rahman wanted us to get some blood tests to rule out some nasty things and everything came back fine! She thinks he must have had a virus recently because his Leukocytes and Lymphocytes were still slightly elevated. That made sense because a couple of weeks ago he was really crabby and had a temp, but we chalked it up to teething. Anyway, Hurray for a healthy baby! For now we just have to make sure no more form and that they don't get bigger. And especially after his blood draw today I hope they don't. I don't ever want to do that again!
