EMLA every time. Didn't do it this time, because I don't think he needs blood or platelets. But the nephrologists want a test done every week which requires a draw, not just a finger stick.
The nurse did a vein in the arm. She is good at it, so I figured that it would be done quickly, and I was right.
Waiting for counts. No idea what ANC will be; reds probably good, platelets likely okay too.
We shall see.
