In December Max got sick...and needed an IV for dehydration. He was so afraid he was going to die.
Max was afraid the IV would leave a hole in his arm, so he asked the doctor how they were going to plug up the hole when they take the IV out. He was so worried about having a needle in his arm. I tried to explain to him that the needle is only in when they first put the IV in and then they take it out and leave only a tube. He was a little more comforted about having the IV. He was unable to walk or stand because when he did, his blood pressure dropped to a dangerous level. The doctor was very concerned.
I told Max that God created our skin to be able to close up after they take the IV out.
