Also, we took Barrett to the doctor yesterday for more follow up blood work regarding the mysterious fever. Should have the results in a week or so (they have to mail it off this time so it takes longer). Poor little guy had FOUR band aids -- one on each arm and leg. He knows what is about to happen now before they even get out the needles. He starts to cry when they tie the rubber band around his upper arm. I don't blame him. Kristopher came with me for the blood work this time, so it was A Big Help; he had never seen them draw his blood (aside from the ER or ICU, of course).
Finally, an update on Barrett's star status:
- The local NBC news people came to film Barrett today for a medical miracle segment they are doing as part of the evening news broadcast. Everything went well, but I felt a little unprepared since we've been so focused on moving/getting ready for the renovation. Barrett was a champ and Kristopher and I gave separate interviews this time. Funny how it doesn't get easier to tell that story.
- A few weeks back, the Children's Hospital asked if they could use Barrett's story for an article in the hospital's magazine, Wee Believe. And today, they called to ask if they could feature Barrett on the cover! Can you believe it? His "photo shoot" is coming up soon, I can't wait to see the professional photos. If you need Barrett, he'll be in his dressing room. Probably playing with his basket.
