Bohdan Prayer Request

 I know this may seem trivial but we are desperate. We have been trying to draw blood from Bohdan for a very important test since October, yes you read that correctly October. We have been to 4 different lab companies and 6 different phlebotomists.

We are scheduled to try again Monday morning at 7:30am. Please pray that he (Walker, the phlebotomist) is able to get all the blood they need for the test. And that we will process the blood correctly and not have to redo any part of the test later.

Thank you all for your prayers!! It is a good feeling to have such a large body of Christ to help support us in prayer. Blesings to you all.

  1. I'll be praying for Bohdan, you guys, and the phlebotomist. We have been there done that. Two small recommendations that we were told by our lab: 1) Make sure he is well hydrated that morning. I guess this helps the veins become "plumper". 2) Our phlebotomist help a warm compress on the inside of our little guys elbow. After many attempts, this seemed to help. I will be thinking of you Monday a.m.

  2. Have them call either a neonatologist or nurse practitioner form the NICU to come down. It may take a little urging but tell them they get one stick and then they call if they don't get it.

  4. in my personal experience they have trouble getting a vein if i'm not well-hydrated. and they comment that it's not what i drink the day before - but a couple days prior. also i always request a butterfly needle.

    not sure if the above will apply to bohdan, but will be praying for him, the phlebotamist and the lab work.
