My Brave Boy

Cutie Pie had to get blood work done this morning.  We have to go on a fairly regular basis to have his TSH and T4 levels checked.  He has congenital hypothyroidism.  I hate having to put him through the blood work but it’s something we have to do to keep him healthy.


My little boy was so brave today.  He did not cry at all!  Usually the sight of the needle makes him whimper and then the sting of the needle going in sends him over the edge.  It breaks my heart.

Today was different.

He watched the whole process and proclaimed, “It doesn’t hurt, Mama!”

Thank God for small blessings.

We hit Wal-mart on the way home for a little treat to reward his bravery.

Of course, he chose a monster truck!
