The doctor is in.

R continues to do a fantastic job infusing his own factor. Every other morning, he mixes the vials, loads the syringe, finds a vein and infuses. It's amazing how well this 10-year-old can handle the responsibility!

Last week we participated in a research study, and the researchers observed R infusing. You might think it'd make him nervous to have strangers ogling his every move, but R handled the infusion with ease. He described every step of the procedure, and when the time came, he found the vein on the first stick.

We are so blessed to have the factor that lets R live a normal life, but we are beyond blessed to have this child who can handle hemophilia with such grace.
