The Plan

Infusing is not going very well for my "Christian" right now.  He is fighting so hard because of his fear of needles and his father and I just cannot access him without help.  We have a plan in place.

We will be going to the HTC on Wednesday afternoons after school to have the nurse access him, while the Childlife Specialist works with him before the actual infusion.  Unfortunately it takes several people to hold him for the infusion, but there is no other way right now.  At least it takes his father and I out of the picture for a bit and our stress levels can go down as someone else is infusing Christian.

We also have an appointment scheduled for him Tuesday evening to see a therpist who specializes in play therapy.  I have no idea what to expect, but right now I will try anything.

Have you had any experience with play therapy?
