Re: Child has no thyroid gland, refuses test,help

DS has to have his blood drawn once a year and we INSIST that they use the numbing stuff. Otherwise we'd have to hold him down, plus he has hard to get to veins like me, so I'd hate to have them digging around there like they do to me without some numbing stuff. The nurse puts the ointment on about half an hour to an hour before we go down to the lab. It works wonders.
