My daughter is getting retested for lyme. If she's positive she may have to get a pic line to receive IV antibiotics. She won't even wear a bandage and I'm afraid having a pic line will send her into hysterics. She's only three and when she afraid, reasoning with her is out of the question. Has anyone dealt with this before and how did your child handle it?
