My 6 month old DS had to get blood drawn today to check hormone levels because of pubic hair on scrotum. The nurse couldnt get the vein once on each arm and finally another nurse got the vein the third time.
When we got home, i noticed petechiae spots from his shoulder to his hand on both arms, no where else on his body. no fever, hes happy, normal, feeding etc. i called the ped and the nurse said thats normal sometimes after bloodwork. ill be calling back tomorrow and ask the dr directly.
until then, can someone please please ease my fears and tell me if you've ever been told thats "normal"?
i am obviously very concerned about an underlying blood issue that hasnt come up until now. does anyone have any experience with this one way or the other?
