A Visit To The Vampires
First off, let's just say that I'm posting now so that I don't have a repeat of last night's "almost missed it" incident.
Last Wednesday, The King and I took the girls to see the vampires. You know, those blood-lusting fiends at the doctor's office. We had to get the girls checked for lead poisoning. The very short story of what happened there would simply be "Not Fun."
All things considered, the girls handled the blood-letting rather well. The part that killed them was the fact that they each needed to get one shot (one immunization for The Dragon and one flu shot for The Princess) immediately after the blood draw.
Can you imagine the chaos?
It took both of us to hold down one girl at a time. And there were two nurses in the room. And I'm pretty sure that the rooms aren't sound proof.
Well, anyway, the doctor called today. The test results are back. The Princess is fine. The Dragon actually shows some lead in her blood (probably from licking the plates, Dubby!). The levels are low enough that no medication will be required, nor will they require a treatment plan. So I guess that all is well... but, this leads me to the question of what is The Dragon being exposed to that her sister isn't?
It's an interesting question... and I'm just hoping that it's not going to cause too many sleepless nights.
